    Bill,
    I'll take those if still available. If you won't take payment beyond mailing cost, i'll make a donation to SMC. I'd offer to drive over, but it would be at least 2 or 3 weeks!!

    I'd agree with Mike on the Circle Cutting Jig--betting the holes in the arm to be 1/4" diameter. Nice set of dividers too, along with the wood. If you decide to sell the Performax, give me a...

    If it's flat and not pitted, you got a great deal on that table. If it came with the lift, and the lift is functional--it may be the best deal you ever get. The plate opening is a standard 11 3/4"...
