Went to Somerset. What a disappointment. I use - and swear by - the Keller DT jig. Saw a rip off thete...
Saw Jerry Cole from In-line, pushing his Dubby. Didn't see any sales, and I watched for quite a while.
Saw a big dealer there - had both Jet and Powermatic on the floor, and was pushing Jet. Lets just say that I use Powermatic - Jet has left a very bad taste in my mouth, and a hole in my pocket.
Wanted to look at some DeWalt stuff - they were more interested in selling things than answering questions about their tools. I'm in the market for a DWP611 - my old "light" router (a) isn't so light, and (b) is about shot.
Some very nice wood there, prices not too bad, but...
A lot of junk being sold by "Larry".
A lot of old tools being sold. Not interested myself, but there was some action.
PeachTree had a huge booth, and they were quite busy. Also selling a lot of stuff from China, as far as I could see.
A few of ww clubs were there. A lot of interesting stuff, but just not up my alley.
A guy selling a laser CNC-type machine. $$$$$$ Not interested in making things out of 3/16ths thick stuff.
Somebody selling a gutter protection system. Wellll.... I suppose leaves do have a relationship to trees, and trees are made of wood, and woodworking is about doing things with wood, and leaves go into tables, but they are a different kind of leaf.k
