  About Me

  • My Shop
    Some detailed information about my workshop.
    Power Tools
    Table Saw--Craftsman 21833 with Incra TS-LS 32
    Compound Miter Saw--old Craftsman (recently changed the power cord--i'll keep it for a while now!!) bought new in the early '90's??
    Band Saw--Ridgid 14" with a HF riser kit (used/like new from Craigslist--paid more for the riser kit i think)
    Radial Arm Saw--Craftsman 10", old but with a fresh top and blade guard thanks to the recall (used from CL for $50, cuts square all day long and is my favorite crosscut saw)
    Jointer--Grizzly 6" long bed, bought used from CL for $100--a steal
    Planer--Dewalt 735
    Drill Press--13" benchtop on a homemade stand, 1980 vintage Chicago Machinery, built the Peachtree pattern table for it
    Mortiser--Jet benchtop, bought from same estate as the Grizzly jointer. Nice family.
    Handheld Planer and Jig Saw--both recent Bosch, purchased new
    Scroll Saw--just bought a 16" Grizzly yesterday (August, 2012) from a guy who had it for 7 years and never opend the box
    Assorted Drills--both corded and battery, current favorite is a Hitachi cordless
    Dust collector--HF.
    My Shop
    My shop is 1/3 of a 24' x 36' garage--theoretically. Right now it's closer to half which means room for one car instead of 3. All the stands i've built have been on casters to stay flexible.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    Full-time life/health insurance agent by trade. Have a Great Wife who is worship leader at our church. Have a teenaged son who is a pretty good drummer, an older one in the Air Force (Mountain Home AFB in Idaho at the moment) and the oldest is married to a great girl with a baby on the way!!
    Location
    Northwest Indiana
    Interests
    Volunteer firefighter, Haz-mat technician. For the past several years i've also served as a safety worker at various motorsports events, nothing else quite like that. We own several guitars, but my rhythm is awful!!
    Favorite Router
    At the moment i'm partial to the Bosch 1617 (have 2). Also have a Hitachi M12V2, PC 690 and an old Craftsman. One 1617 was an e-bay deal, the other i bought new. The 690 was e-bay, and the Craftsman i bought new a long long time ago and rarely used. Only table currently is a BenchDog, but it's time to build another. Also have a PC Dovetail kit. Added Dec, 2012 is a Bosch Colt with fixed/plunge base--i like it so far.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    2012 is my rookie year, other than past home improvement stuff.
    First Name
    Earl
    Country
    United States
