    It pays to have friends

    Buddy of mine picked up this bucket of tools for me yesterday. Breast drill, 6 braces and a Yankee push drill. Not bad.

    I see you have the same TS as I. I really love mine and added a router table to the right end between the front and rear rails. Versatile and compact. What will you do with the gifts?

    Looks like stuff I inherited from my father and sold at a yard sale for 50 cents each. Really.

    Steve I think you studying in the wrong direction. You should have gone into curatorship. You are looking at being a fine custodian.

    Great haul. You got good friends that do that for you. Just like me.
    cheers

    Bill, I hate this saw. Glad you like yours.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
