Essentials for the Workshop
« on: October 21, 2007, 06:35 PM »
In view of the day, here's what every woodworker needs.
1. A good clear workspace,
2. Excellent tools and most importantly,
3.The best work clothing available.

GO SOX!!! ;D ;) :)

Rob (in Melbourne, ex Boston)

Rubbing it in again that you have a Kapex aren't you Rob.  Just kidding, you do have a nice assortment of tools though.

Hi Mirko,
The drill press is a generic type beastie imported by an Australian tool company. All the stuff I've bought from them (17" Band saw, 13" Thicknesser/planer and the drill press) have been copies of something else, but all work well. There's abit of Makita gear in here as well. I like Mak stuff as well.

Regards,

Rob
