Default New toys

Hi, ladies and gentlemen.

Some new toys arrived to my garage. A new drill press with much more capacity than my small one. A small compressor and some accessories for my DP.

Taking into account that my daughter bought a new apartment, there are so many project to use these toys.

Congratulations, Alexis! The drill press looks identical to one I purchased over 40 years ago and it is still going strong. You'll get a lot of use and mileage out of it. My suggestion for a first step is to build a drill press table. Once I did that, (after owning it 30 years ) I started using it more. Now I find I use my drill press at least once on almost every project.

May the grain be ever in your favor.

Great buys, Alexis.

Were you able to buy the locally, or did you have to import them?

Congrats Alexis, I know you're gonna love it. I use mine on a near daily basis. Just built the cabinet for it to stand on as my knees aren't what they used to be and kneeling to use it is definately not condusive to comfort
