Hello from NY
« on: March 29, 2017, 10:21 PM »
Hello all, great forum and I already learned a lot while picking out my first set of tools. I currently have a small business with a Shopbot Desktop and a mix of old and new woodworking tools. Business has been good enough that I am ready to take the leap and hone my skills on some nicer equipment.

I jumped in with both feet and got the following to retrofit my shop:

MFT/3 with Qwas Dog Set, stabilizers, quick clamps, clamping elements
TS55 REQ with extra rail and connector set
Domino 700 XL with 700, 500 and new connectors tenons plus Seneca Kit
RO 150 Sander with full Granat paper assortment
CT36E Vacuum with extra set of bags
Seneca Woodworking Parallel Guides
TSO GS16E dual edge guide

That was enough for the bank account for now. More items will come as projects require them and can help cover the costs. Really looking forward to the new tools arriving from Bob Marino next week as I have some projects lined up around the house to get acclimated with them.

Thank you for the welcome.

Your my neighbor Seth. I mostly do custom commissioned art and custom furniture. I focus on the smaller stuff that the larger contractors just don't have the time or desire to take on. I'm also word of mouth only so I get a to pick and choose the jobs I want. It's been fun so far and hoping this year will be even better.

What do you make?
