    Now I can finally build that mortising jig and move forward on my nightstands.

    FedEx is really nice.... They always seem to bring stuff you want. It's truly amazing how they can do that!

    As if another air-blown case isn't bad enough . . . this thing is huge. If I did work outside the shop I could really see appreciating it; lotsa little stash spots inside. For me, its going over the rafters with his friends.

    I have the 5615 for freehand work and the 5625 in the table; now the 5616 for plunge work. I swear this is not intentional. Thank goodness for the Bosch stuff; its getting awfully red around here.

    Nice get, Glenn. Sounds like you're getting quite a stable of red.

    Ya know, you can always mount a trolling motor on that case and use it at the lake.

    I smoked the motor on a 1˝ hp Mill Router awhile ago. It was from a BORG though and maybe not up to good standards. I replaced it with a Porter Cable for whatever that was worth
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Looks like a great kit. I really liked my little 5615 BodyGrip...the 5616 has more power plus the EVS. I've heard others comment that the plunger is excellent. Enjoy!
    Got Wood?
