Please help! Got hit with Guilt. Bad.
I need help.
And this probably sounds sad- I know. I’m sitting here with the Grizzly page open to the 0500 jointer. It seems from everything that it is a winner to me. And my Wife says, “How many of these things are you going to get?!?!?”
Okay she does have a point. I’ve only been at this about two years (er, not counting college… somebody young and full of ideas got some- yes, some– BFAs in Sculpture, Art History… another story)- and the garage is getting kind of full. Just that I’ve gotten good enough to realize I should have bought a jointer, er, a couple of machines ago. I just sort of realized it. Something about advice and heed of.
So, advice (taken this time, honest!), a list whatever is very, very welcome! What else am I really going to end up buying without knowing -now-? Er, right, I’m making a LOT of solid wood furniture. Here is the list so far.
Cabinet saw, band saw, planer, mortiser, drill press, shaper, router, dovetail jig (call me a fool), Lots of dust collection stuff, and assorted hand tools. And Glue! How does someone collect this much glue? Saw blades and chisels don’t seem to count if they show up right after I give her something else for the house.
So- uh, please help. I promise that I will soon join some addict group for tools. Right after the jointer. Ahem.
Thanks for your help- I have truly enjoyed reading these boards and really respect what everyone has to say.
