    New shop intern

    Was at the tablesaw yesterday and noticed something in my peripheral vision. Turns out my 8 y/o granddaughter's mini horse decided to inspect the shop. Don't think he liked the stool as he knocked it over.

    Festool RO125 arrived

    Ordered it from Klingspor on Tue it arrived today! Spent all afternoon familiarising myself with it on a Maloof style rocker. I'm definitely impressed with the sanding and dust collection. Costly but worth it IMO. Thanks for your input. Steve

    Final Post - My attempt at a Maloof style rocker

    A Maloof style rocker has been in my bucket list for a long time. Have read tons of literature, watched most youtube but was always chicken. Three + years ago I felled and sawed a very large RO and have made dozens of projects with the lumber. Got lots of RO... why not make a rocker? Finally...

    Carter Guides/Northfield BS

    New guides arrived yesterday, now I have more invested in them than what I paid for the saw, replacement parts, paint, etc... My son in law reminded me to add the hours upon hours of man hours I have invested in the restoration. At $ 2.00 an hour that should not add much to the total price...

After locking the 1" end into the...
