Default New toy

Well I posted earlier this year that I was going to use my router again after ome medical issues that have been holding me back have cleared.

That didn't happen for a number of reasons and things are all packed up for another winter. I did manage to build a prototype portable router table that I can clamp in my workmate but that was it.

I however bought a new toy to play with. It was in the running when I bought my first router and was 70% off so I pulled the trigger on it. I have not used it yet. I did get it unpacked and started though seems to be powerful enough.

Details here:

I have a much older one that I believe is very similar but mine has blue plastics and a speed display. A buddy gave it to me for something I built for him. I didn't expect much from it but it has well out-lived my expectations. Have fun with it, Don.

I've had pretty good service out of my few Maximum tools. I did have the lock handle break on a 10" sliding compound miter saw and was told that the part was no longer available. It was still under warranty at the time so I asked what CT's policy is when that happens and was told that they'll offer a replacement tool when that happens and they did. Something to keep in mind just in case.

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.
