I didn’t buy the Ringmaster, but I’m thinking it might be the next tool purchase. The Shopsmith was bought new two years ago, and I still haven’t been able to really use it, but I’m looking forward to it. Workshop is almost built (well as much as a workshop is ever really done). I really enjoyed the show, but again I am a complete newcomer to the hobby/craft/business. I didn’t think it was big enough to justify a ride of over two hours in either direction. It’s a 1 1/2 hour ride from my Son’s house, and I would probably only go every couple of years, because of that. 14 $ admission (with everyone offering a 2$ off coupon), and 5$ to park. I talk to people and learn stuff, but maybe not enough to go every year. I was thinking/hoping there would have been more woodworking machinery to look at, but I’m guessing the logistics of getting it there, wiring it up, and demonstrating it, don’t generate enough sales to make it worthwhile. I was hoping to do some dust collector tire kicking. It wasn’t advertised at all that I saw, but I had looked online to check the show schedule, only way I knew when it was.
The clock of life is wound but once.
