    You need one more tool though, because there's still one empty electrical outlet.

    I've recently been given 2 of those Craftsman radial arm saws for free. They said the motor was bad. Pushed the little red reset button and they work perfectly. I found out if you're ripping pieces longways it will send some toward the ceiling every once in a while. My dad had to replace a set of lights not too long ago.

    Yes. Ripping is scary. Two people help. I bought the saw new in 74. We did a lot of work with it. My bud more than me. He made cabinets for several kitchens.

    It paid for itself. It will do the work of several other tools but not quite as well or easy as the tool made specifically for the job.

    Peter, my friend made a sled that is to reach across the width. He mounted the sled on casters to run it lengthwise, then bump the router over with however much overlap, and do the length. Much less finishing.

    Videos generally go side to side, and move a little bit down the length.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Doing some work on my old 18" drum sander, making it work a bit smoother, hope to whip off some projects quicker.

    I haven't made the bed of my router sled. Too cold to go welding outside. Gave the sled a run on some apple cookies I had. Needs to be tightened up a bit but works good. Waiting on a router bit from Amazon.

    Messing around with my routersled. Made a change, got rid of the rollers and just cut a groove in the puckboard router base. Less vibrations.

    2ft wide by 2ft long mullberry. Worked decent. Now on to make the bed. Planning on 39" wide by 14ft long. I will use it as the bed for a bandsaw mill as well. May be a stroke sander bed as well.
