Thanks Chris, it’s amazing what poverty produces. There was a time when instead of going out and buying the newest and greatest tool was not an option. I have learned over the years that with a little thought I can make do a lot of the time with what I have. I bought a wood shaper several years ago, to make moldings. I have only used it a couple times. Either I don’t have the right cutter and have to order it, or I make it on the table saw. Years ago I thought that I needed a band saw to cut circles. An old carpenter that taught me to build cabinets, showed me how to do it on the radial arm saw. Since then, I have leaned that there is a gig that can be built to do just about anything, instead of buying a tool that I may never use again :D Mahlon
