Default Good evening everybody

Just found this forum. I will be doing lots of reading. I have a little shop I have put together over the years. I am a retired pipefitter. Have been retired about 16 years. A few of my toys are 14" Jet band saw--10" Powermatic table saw. An assortment of drills sanders etc etc. My latest toy is a 12 1/2" 754Dewalt planer. Have mounted an old Sears router onto my tablesaw. Also bought a Skil plundge router I bought at a garage sale. Looks new, in box with manual. Have used it a time or 2--grandson-in law used it a few times.
I just piddle in my shop and am no means an experienced wood worker but enjoy what I do. I also like to treasure hunt (metal detector)--fishing 18 FT alum flat btm w/48 Evinrude--motorcycle riding (06 RSTD) but the thing I like to do most is playing with my 3 year old great grandson. I will start reading now-----Buzz (Don)
