Just wanted to come in here and introduce myself.
I am originally from Eastern N.C. but now live in San Diego by way of the US Navy. No longer in the Navy but decided to stay in San Diego due to the lovely weather.
I grew up "helping" do woodworking projects with my Grandfather and Father. Its something that I really enjoyed doing and want to get back into. I live in an apartment but am lucky enough to have a garage that is located directly underneath my balcony. Only problem is that there isn't any outlets in there. There is an overhead light but no outlets. I've got extension cords so no problem there.
My garage is 11'W x 24'D so work space is limited.
I have started my collection of power tools but the laundry list is still long. I am a firm believer in buying quality once over cheap multiple times.
So far I have:
7 1/4" circular saw
10" Compound Mitre saw
Router w/fixed and plunge base
6" RO Sander
4 1/2" Angle grinder
I think thats it. Majority of them are Orange and a couple yellows one mixed in. Didn't want to post brand names or links due to not being sure of forum rules.
Well, my post ended up being a lot longer than I wanted.
I have been looking for a nice woodworking community. This looks great.
