I had problems with posting a while back when I was using a wireless system connecting to a tower. I think it was the service I was using because it suddenly quit. I had gotten in the habit of copying everything I wanted to post so that I didn't have to rewrite so often.

If you are talking about mounting a router in the wing of your table saw many here have done it because of space issues. It isn't the ideal setup because you may not be able to use one because of the other but sometimes you just have to make do. I would mount the router to a removable plate if I were doing that.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

cpo ??

Thomas - CPO Outlets - U.S. based that deals in tools and also carries refurbished items. I bought a Bosch 1617 EVSPK last year while I was in Florida - had it shipped to me there (free of course) and even with the Canadian exchange, was quite a bit cheaper than buying it here in Ontario.
Not sure if they ship to Canada or not but even if they do, the shipping charges wouldn't be worth it (for me)

CPO Outlets | New and Reconditioned Power Tools, Pressure Washers, Tankless Water Heaters, Vacuums, Ceiling Fans, and more!

I didn't think so, Charles but wasn't sure.

But, @thomas1389 , I'm close enough to the border, as are you that I've used a UPS store on Military Road in Lewiston, to have items shipped to.(golf equipment). They notify you by email when the items arrive and at the time, would store the items for $1.00 per day (that may have gone up, not sure). Then it was a matter of driving across on my lunch to pick the items up. You can do the same thing in Niagara Falls, NY, not sure if it's UPS or US Post. I have a friend that does that regularly.
