    howdy from N. Texas

    Oh Goodness.. I am close to re-equipping the garage shop lol.
    Former W-netter from... 20+ years ago.
    Now that I am crazy (that is not news) about Audio, I am looking forward to making "stuff" to hold Amps, TT, etc and lord help me, $$ speakers.

    While I may not have much to contribute, there is always a lot to learn and heck, be jealous of
    Currently only have a Jet Lathe, for making game calls. Not something I pursue anymore.
    I am N of McKinney i.e. Van Alstyne

    Best Regards, Y'all.

    Welcome George. I’m just a bit south of you. I’m about 10 miles east of McKinney. If I can be of any help give me a shout.

    Welcome George. HiFi projects are fun. I am sure you have found your way to Parts Express. It is amazing what's available on the web for speaker building.

    Thank you all!
    I just finished ordering a Jet TS. 3hp, 50" version. Basically just like what I had before, however the previous Saw was 1/3 the cost!! (used).
    If noting else, the two young guys who bought it may have successfully started their business. They drove a long ways to get it.

    I am making a list of projects.. of course that involves wood I cannot afford. Will have to deal with later lol!

    Speaker build(s) wont require a Jointer or Planer. The other projects, Yes. Shame on me for selling everything I had. No doubt, that is a familiar subject!!

    Not sure about my Commas. Please forgive. This should be a fun place to visit

    BTW I am of the older generation, so sometimes... well, you know if you know. Semi retired. i.e. still working. Ughh.

    Actually I will need a Jointer. lol.
    I am thinking about going Grizzly 6".
    ^^^^^ ^^^^

    Danger, Will Robinson!

    I currently have 2 Grizzly products that I find disappointing. A Mill and a Metal Lathe. Along with a previous battleship 8" looooong bed jointer, it was horrible.
    OTOH the Bandsaw I had was very good. Eventually I will go with another Grizzly BS.

    If you need the use of a jointer and planer before you get one I’m happy to have you come by and use mine. 16” Oliver jointer and 20” Felder planer.
