Default Thank you all

Guys this has been a huge eye opener for me as I really didn't know a lot about routers , although I own 3 .
My PC690 was mounted in my TS extension of my old contractors saw . Nothing elaborate , but now it's going in a new TS extension with the proper Incra plate for large material.
I also have 2 makita plunge routers , one for building subwoofer cabinets as it is connected to a perfect circle jig from Sears . Amazing how accurate a hole you can make if you want .
Getting input from the members here I now have a PC 75182 ready to be installed in a Incra master lift 2 , which will be installed in an a Incra table combo 3
Before joining I wasn't even aware of Incra , and I'm glad that was brought to my attention .

I sold the love of my life , my 78 TransAm

as I finally realized that when your garage is 22' by 26' , you have the choice of a woodshop or a classic car garage , not both .
But I'm think I will be getting a lot of enjoyment from wood working, especially during the long Canadian winters .
I'm trying to get motivated again pumping iron so I moved my gym to the larger part of my basement .
To get less of a dungeon appearance I did a few mods with my router table . As my lat machine went threw the ceiling tile ,I wanted it to look cool so I cut this hole in an aluminum sheet you see here with the fence and the router mounted on the extension wing .
It amazes me how many uses you can find for a router , pretty much indispensable

I also used my router mounted in my TS to round off and refine these bumper plate vertical holders .
I personally hate picking bumper plates off the floor so this has been a blessing , thanks again to routers and Miter saws .

Anyways wrapping things up , I hope to do some more technical work and get into jointing ! I am getting to a point where it's almost embarrassing buying kitchen cabinets from homedepot lol , and I suspect that if I pay attention to the other members here I'll be an expert someday . Well at the very least I'm going to know all the technical terms

I can't look at the Trans Am without thinking about the oil change commercial and the guy singing "Turn me loose" by Loverboy.

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.

Lmao . That commercial cracks me up ! She didn't seem to impressed
I have to say during the few nice days we have I sure miss taking her out for a cruise with the T tops off
Tourists would stand beside the Marty and take pictures lol
But I don't have the resources for a bigger house that I would require to keep her so it is what it is .

This was taken at Banff

And this one , well in space

hahah, one of the members I visited during our 2012 trip had a beautiful new 'bumbleBee' and had to park it out in the snow as her 2 car garage was so full of tools...

Sydney, Australia

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.
