I have spent the last two days cleaning up the basement to use as a shop. I shoud have done this a lot sooner but have just got out of a bad bout of depression and didn’t really care about it. I “found” a lot of tools that I forgot i had. They were “hiding” under the work bench. I guess I’m all set for now, here is what I found;

10” compound mitre saw
10” table saw
biscuit joiner
jig saw
finnish nailer
belt sander
table top drill press (hiding in plain site)
palm sander
orbital sander
detail sander
dremel tool kit
cordless drill, skil trim saw, jig saw
rotozip tool

all these tools plus many hand tools I have saved over the years. I guess I’m set to start on a couple of small projects such as a new radiator cover and a riser stand for my computer. These two will tell me if I still have it.

Here are a few pictures of the “shop”

Sorry cannot get the photos to work from photobuket for some reason. When I click paste, I get a script prompt ????

Try the direct link from photobucket. Copy it and then use the “link” icon in the lumberjocks posting area and paste the photobucket direct link.
