I wonder what suggestions members will come up with regarding the last point!
Although an interest in woodworking is usually ingrained early, some develop the interest later in life. So, there's probably still some hope for them.

How do you find the accuracy of the Triton 2000?

Mine has the Triton saw permanently fitted. The secret for accuracy is to set it up accurately in the first place, this is easy when using the Triton saw as it has holes in it's base that fit into cams, making positioning the saw very simple. once it is set up like this, whatever you set the fence to is what will be cut, and that saw gives a superb cut. There is a rise and fall kit available which I reckon is essential.

I actually allowed Noah to keep most of the tools for maintenance, arriving in Australia in '64 with very few and have built up the collection since then.
As a matter of interest Mike it wasn't a free boat ride from England, it cost Marlene and I ten pounds each, 7 year old Paul nothing and it wasn't a boat ride, we flew here in a turbo prop plane that took 36 hours, stopping every five minutes to re-fuel. These days it takes only 19 hours with just one stop.

Maurice One thing about being slightly older is that you have had time to collect up all these neat tools, right Harry?

harrysin Thanks for the kind remarks guys, I'm constantly amazed at the number of tools required for even a quite basic job like this.
