Found the forum through the Woodworking Channel. I enjoy woodworking and always am looking for a way to improve my skills. I use a very old Sears Craftsman router that was given to me by my father-in-law. He was a master carpenter, cabinet maker and woodworker. Even though he is no longer with us, I still use what he has made as a guide for my projects. It is almost impossible to build to his standards by I will always try.

I live in Nebraska with my wife and son. I plan to retire next year and hopefully will be able to devot more time to my woodworking habit.

Welcome to the forums TCH. I used my old Craftsman routers for many projects and they lasted a very long time. They were in fact still running smoothly when I sold them off to make way for newer, better designed units from Bosch and Porter Cable. There are only two faults for Craftsman routers, they use plastic guide bushings and most of them only came with a 1/4" collet. They are dependable machines though. I hope you enjoy the forums.

Welcome to the community :p
Welcome to the forum. There are a few of us old (?), retired, sawdust makers here and for any question you may have there will probably be at least one answer if not a dozen. Just pick the one(s) you like and ignore the rest ;)
