    2 big gloats and 1 small gloat X 2

    1. W&H moulder with custom designed crown and edge band (for tile counters) cutters, the edge band cutters also cut another small decorative moulding i put on my shelf faces and on the bottom of my upper cabinets. the pic below is the crown i designed, nothing special but i am the only one who has it.

    2. Conquest Mini Line boring machine, 13 holes at once sure beats one at a time with a drill and a rockler jig.

    3. Two Triton 2-1/4hp router with all the accessories. these will become my dedicated rail and stile routers when i get my new shop set up...that way i only have to adjust them when i sharpen the bits.

    the best thing about the W&H and Conquest machines is that they are both made right here in the US. and they both have Baldor motors

    i think just about everyone knows by now how great the triton routers are after some of the reviews they have gotten. i look forward to putting them through their paces....not to mention never climbing under a router table to adjust bit height ever again

    a much happier woodworker,

    thanks vaughn,

    no time to mess around, although my collection of tools would still be considered hobbiest level compared to most of the shops round here.

    Sure good tools count, but what is between the ears counts more Chris!

    Nice additions to the shop for sure, them Triton routers are supposed to be fantastic, if my M12 Hitachi ever dies (doubt it) I'll replace it with a Triton in a heart beat!

    Cheers!

    Congrats on the new "Helpers", Chris. Those should make things a little easier and speed up production a lot too.

    stu, i agree

    they are definitely nice and much welcomed additions.

    i haven't used the routers for much, but i did try one out a little and i like the feel of them. the motor sounds different than my PC's and my dad's dewalt.

    nice one jim

    norman, i sure hope they do.


    tod,

    i agree bout the hussey, the line borer too, but there are hobbiest that i have seen post their shops who make mine look childish.

    but as we all know, you can do just about anything you want with minimal tools if you have the desire to do so, my desire to do things the hard way is slipping away

    i visited a neighboring shop today, one of the bigger ones in town. they had some seriously nice equipment in there, but in my opinion my cabs look just as good

    I have seen Norm from New Yankee workshop use a moulding machine. Is that the one? I seem to recall it being red, but no brand was readable. Do you have a link to the manufacturer? I am considering one for reproducing moulding in my house.

    Thanks
    Bobby
