Default New tools for the shop

Got a few in and up and running, now to build some cabinets for everything. Upgraded my band saw but I had some of these in the old shop.

Also found a used Leigh D4 that I am looking forward to using, I had the porter cable before.

Nice Clay. I'd like to see a tool review on the glide saw. They've come down enough that I can start considering buying one.

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.

Great looking equipment Clay . In the first pic I'm really liking that vertical belt sander , as it's a size I've never seen before . It seems to have have other spindles . Does it double as a spindle sander also ?

It is like the Triton. It is an oscillating spindle sander with 5 drums and the belt attachment which also oscillates. I have only played with it so far.

Agree with what Cherryville Chuck stated 'bout the Bosch glide saw. The 12" saw is starting to call my name....

I have only done a few cuts so far. Big selling point with me is how close it will fit to the wall.

That Griz band saw looks nice and large. What is it, 14-16 inch capacity? Great to get new tools, only you have a lot of tuning up to do. Didn't notice a tablesaw, do you have one or are you getting one?

Great looking new tools, I know you will enjoy using them.

"It's just a hardened oz or two of metal, sharpened to a razor edge, spinning at 24,000 rpm.....what could go wrong?"

The vertical belt sander/spindle sander looks almost 100% like the Rigid unit I have owned for several years other than the Grizzly is green and the Rigid is orange. I like the tool a lot and use it much more than I thought I would. Am curious if you have seen the Rigid unit and if they really are the same?

That is s 17" band saw, I had a 14" last time. Still deciding on table saw, joiner and thickness planer.
