Funny this popped up today. My step daughter came for an art party today, and it turns out that her husband used the table saw I gave him for a first project, and he liked it. I have wondered who might take on all my tools when I'm gone. They have also said they'd like to buy the house at some point so he'd even get the shop. Gave him an extra 2hp blower and my Olson miter gauge today. I'm not using either and being able to use good tools will encourage him to do more.
kp91, harrysin, JFPNCM and 3 others like this.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Sounds like he's off to a good start Tom and your support will hopefully keep him up and running.

She did a real nice job on this.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

My grandson is getting into wood turning. He has made several pens, took a penturning class, and made an ornament for his parents. He wants to make a bowl. I haven't even made a bowl!
