    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.

    On the blue menu bar at the top of every page is a Donate Link in yellow text. The link will provide both PayPal information and a physical postal address for those who prefer to send a check via snail mail.

    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.

    Jim: sent you a private message: had no idea that there was a separate private conversation function. Anyway, USPS priority mail insured shipping would be $15.60. PayPal payment works for me. It this works for you, let me know and I will send my paypal address. Thanks Phil

    $185 each and I will cover the shipping. If you are interested just send me your personal email and shipping address and I will issue you a Paypal invoice.

    I also like his videos, very succinct and minimalistic. With the exception of hearing 'been doing this for 50 years' more than I'd like, I think most of them are good. I'm certainly not discounting him being a good woodworker, just some of the stuff turns me off. I'm sure he would have sleepless nights knowing that.......

    The point to me is that even if he coined the phrase 'knifewall', I don't need him to tell me that he did so. He seems to be a really good teacher, it's just difficult for me to get past what I perceive to be his monumental pomposity. I have learned a lot from him and will probably continue to do so, although my filter is a bit narrower these days. His minimalist approach is very refreshing and I especially like that he doesn't seem to have corporate sponsors to muck it all up. The whole phrase-coining thing just really seemed over the top to me, but maybe it's just me. Thanks so much for your note. In all honesty, I did not realize there was a link, even more surprised when you said it was canned. Good thing there aren't any rules in woodworking!!

    Ok, I'll let you know if I run across something soon.
