    No thanks Jim. I am pretty well stocked! How has the Boxwood been working out?

    I'm still on the fence.

    Hi Jim, I'm not sure why you sent me that link for the sander. Although the picture shows a battery in the sander, $225 is the fixed Festool Price for the Basic version which includes no batteries or charger. Batteries are $100 a piece.

    On second thought I'll mess with this tool one more time. If you want to send me the blade/cap iron send it to: Bill Winter 3425 High Plateau Garland, TX 75044. Thanks!!

    I have decided to deep six this plane. I can't get the frog to be square to the base and the lateral adj. tang is not reaching the cap iron correctly. It's just not worth my time.

    I totally agree Jim, he prices ridiculously high, that said, the classifieds forum rules are pretty clear on debating price & value.

    Maybe I should have said that it includes their miter square, clamps and the saw plate.

    Hi Jim,

    I hadnt given that much thought to trades.... let me ramble a bit.

    Oscillating edge sander
    Power feeder for shaper
    Makita track saw
    Maybe a fein or festool dust extractor
    Locked miter shaper cutter (small one preferred, but needs 1 1/4" bore)
    Some of the LV or LN bench planes, possibly a saw, a small shoulder plane and a #4 or #5. Maybe a couple floats, rasps, possibly some layout/msmt tools like a high quality combo square.

    Basically all the stuff nobody would want to get rid of!!

    This machine can do some work - I just have multiple other ways. Oh, and I have a pneumatic line drill/hinge drill that is a nice little unit if you are making cabinets I would let it go as well. I will have to dig out the details on it and get some pics.
