    What equipment should I keep? have the gamut of responses. Does it help? Sell your duplicates if you have to, but be careful not to get down the road a bit and turn around looking for a tool you used to have. They're tools. Not out of fashion Hawaiian shirts or something.

    Help with Router Fence

    Great idea, Mike. That's pretty much what people are selling material-wise. I just asked my son to pick some up for me - he's a metal fabricator out on a parts run at the moment.

    Help with Router Fence

    I have a simple Porter Cable Benchtop Router Table (698). Suits my needs most of the time, but I'd like something more stable and precise than its 2-piece fence and vacuum port. Can someone recommend a good aftermarket fence for a 20" (ish) table?

    Welcome, Tyler. I live on the edge of Ft. Bragg. I'm not much of a hand tool expert, but I have tools...and hands. Maybe we could hook up sometime.

    Smithshop V or VII worth the price?

    I've used a Shopsmith for the last 12 years or so. Like others have noted, the need to reconfigure for various functions is there. Whether a hindrance or not is debatable. For a few years I had two Shopsmiths after buying one from a neighbor whose failing eyesight made woodworking an unsafe...

    Miters, Accuracy and Indulgence

    After a good bit of research, collecting of opinions, and shopping the best deals, I settled on a miter guide for my table saw: The Osborne EB-3. A little spendy on the utility tool side, but it appears to be worth the accuracy for my needs. Of course, no sooner did I order the Osborne...

    Just a simple segmented pen

    I just came back to look at this again...and finally caught the pick guard pieces as separators. I was so busy admiring the pen the first time, I guess I skimmed the reading portion. Very creative.
