      Your shop looks great. Isn't it fun when you get everything you need --and a bonus if you get it "on sale" ? I found the lap dust collector that was exactly what I wanted on your kijiji site last year. Much better than our Craig's list. I especially like how you have relevant things on the wall next to where they will be used--no hunting for where you stored them!

    Shut up! You scored some mighty fine tools for an incredible price.
    Way to go. Are these all going to go in that adorable workshop?
    I don't mean this in a nasty way in the least but I'm green with envy.
    That shop is the best idea I've ever seen.
    Happy woodworking to you .

      Hi SW
      Everything fits in my shop and I still have room to carve, , I am now in no need of any more power tools except a weecheer 272 reciprocating carver, my old one bit the dust after six years hard labour. I was just on kijiji looking at electric chain saw, if I can get it for $20 it might be a handy thing to have around
      LOL

        Seriously Bruce. You did REALLY GOOD. The prices you got are amazing and even your set up is wicked.
        May I ask what type of dust collection system you have there? Even your scroll saw set up is perfect. I just purchased a new scroll saw with a stand and I'm debating whether to use the shop vac with a dust deputy or get a quieter dust collector. I'm torn.Lol
        Anyway congrats on the new tools.

          Hi SW
          My dust collector is one I fashioned from a bouncy house fan, i covered the air intake and hooked up a 3 inn flex hose(dryer vent) as my suction and exhaust into a cotton pillow case( rocket science)I only use this set up when I am using a rotary tool,I also have this hooked up to a remote control used for Christmas lights. I used to have a big Craftex system, it was too big and too loud.

                Thanks Terry and Joe
                The only thing I need in the shop now is a dog ,I don't think that's going happen unless I win a big lotto jackpot, pups have gone up three fold since the last one was bought 13 years ago. I can always listen to my seven dollar stereo system LOL.

                  Looks like you've got just about everything there Bruce (or should I say AJ.......LOL ( inside joke) ) Next you'll have to negotiate with N.S. Power to try and get cheaper power rates to run all that stuff.....
                  If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

                    Have you bought belts for that sander? I inherited that exact machine from my father-in-law and while lots of places will list 1" belts on their web pages, no shops around here seem to actually stock them.

                      Thanks Wayne
                      Maybe I could get some hamsters to run in a cage to power up every thing LOL
                      I have been looking for an inexpensive lathe no luck yet for my price bracket

                        Hi Steev

                        I bought belts for the sander from a local company,with no problem, I think
                        Lee valley sells them as well

                          Steev, I concur with Bruce, Lee Valley has 'em, I just got two from them the other day. Nice setup Bruce and Kijiji is fun. Nice save on the bouncy house blower.

                            Yes kijiji is a lot of fun, sometime I will buy a set of chisels, clean them up put them back on kijiji three days later and double my money, made an offer on an electric chain saw last night, have to wait for a reply, I really don't need one
