A rare tool gloat...

Smile    
A couple weeks ago I was perusing through the "tools for sale" section of Craigslist and stumbled upon a Porter Cable OmniJig. I called the seller and he still had it, so I set a time to come take a look. I handed the gentleman what he was asking for it without a thought to haggle. I figure he had about $800 invested with the jig, dust shroud, accessory case and a few extra stops & collars.




All of it for $200... Winkgrin

His advice was to find a place to leave it mounted so I wouldn't have to move it around. I understood exactly where he was coming from as this is one heavy jig! I'm working on a cabinet to mount it to, so I can roll it out of the way when not in use. I'll post some pics of that when it's done...

If it can't kill you it probably ain't no good. Better living through chemicals.

Nice shop, Dave! That is your shop, isn't it? I think all we have seen on your aggregater is the foundation work.

Yes, that's my shop. not sure where you've seen pics, but it has been completed for a few years now. Try looking here...



And I'll gladly accept all the suckage comments.  I don't get many opportunities to hear them... Winkgrin 

Thanks, Guys!
