    Craig List tool prices

    I watch CL for used tools pretty regularly, and in my area the prices seem pretty high lately. Used Unisaws for $1800, old B&D routers that used to go for $30 are now asking $80. etc.

    I think it...

    To me, it depends on what weatherproof covering you use. Mine are mostly vertical opening, and if down low, you can hardly plug something in without being on your hands and knees. I wish I had put...

    I unfortunately dropped a can of the primer on the floor of my shop from a step ladder. 15 years ago. Still there.

    At least I have learned they have a clear primer available now.

    Here is my RAS setup.

    Sorry, I am not very good with attaching pics. This obviously is not a Craftsman, it's a DeWalt 7790 12", but the setup would be the same.

    It is a little used router.

    It's free.

    Of course you want it.

    Even if it only takes 1/4" bits, it is still very useful, and because of the larger, more stable base you may find it handier...

    I was at my local HD two days ago. 7/16" OSB was marked $53 a sheet. Sure glad I finished my new bedroom and garage a year ago, when it was $7-8.

    Really like your router table, especially the way you handled the Incra setup, without having it taking up space permanently.

    Have you used a slider much?

    Let me suggest a third option. If it will only take you a week to get it cleaned up and running, why not do that and use it a while...then decide.

    I would stack half a dozen at a time. Use a backer board and clamp them down. Pretty easy to make a jig to do that. Shape it later.
