    For my Dad (updated) with pics of the actual S,J tool system purchased

    I picked up one of these for my Dad because he doesn't have room in his 10' x 12' gambrel roofed shed for his bigger equipment any more being he still wants to putter in a shop of sorts at the age of 87.

    Well I got all the new parts rollers chains belts etc. put in the Belsaw planer months ago if I get it adjusted up I could take the portable planer down to Dad too not sure he would use it at all though, then because I have a 14" band-saw I could bring the 12" down to him & also his table top Duro drill press that I cleaned up & painted & installed a newer motor on & he would have a pretty complete shop again. I don't think Dad really wants to go that far but it is possible.

    For my Dad

    Bart,

    I think that is just wonderful that you are doing that for your Dad. Sure wish my Dad was still around to do that, (but he'd be 112 now), don't think he could do all that much.

    Hope your Dad gets to have a lot of great times working in his own shop, with some tools you have restored for him. I know I'd br proud if you were my son.

    Aloha, Tony

    Bart, my hat is off to you. You will never regret helping him stay busy/active. He surely appreciates it also. Way to go!!!

    Here are the pics of the actual Table-saw & Jointer I purchased for my Dad. I got the saw cleaned up & trunnions aligned & the 90 & 45 degree stops set & the table waxed & cut some scrap plywood on it it works great. Next I'll get going on the Jointer. It is real quiet when running.

    That's a cool rig, Bart. Good on you for finding it, and well done to your dad for still being interested in playing in the shop.
