Hi Jim and welcome. WE love questions. Ask away.

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.

Welcome to the forum, Jim! Add your first name to your profile to clear the N/a in the side panel. Add your location, as well.

We do like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready. What sort of woodworking are you planning or doing with that new router?

Yet another "Welcome, Jim."

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.
