Been wanting to replace my vibrating hand sander with a random orbital. Couldn't pass on this for $18 at Walmart. Will be using it in a couple weeks when I start on my desk, TV shelf, and book case.

Ckrjack and I started our TV shelves yesterday. Building a 3rd for cwilkins. We tried cutting everything with a skillsaw before I had my table saw, had to cut everything again since nothing was cut well enough. Table saw works great. Huss Buss 2 is borrowing it now actually.

Next up is sanding and adding the veneer edging to the exposed edge.

Helped my dad with his jointer table while I was home. Really cool design that a foot pedal lifts it up so you can roll it around and then you can drop it down on the legs. I mounted the motor, got the belt fitted, and wired the switch. The motor turns the wrong way though and we couldn't figure out how to reverse the polarity of it.

Stained espresso. It matches the end table we bought and the thing that holds Evie's toys. TV trays do not match.

This seems like a neat idea for someone living in an apartment or doesn't have room for shop, but I can't imagine the tools are very powerful.

Shopsmith is a similar concept, but seems much stronger. You can also add attachments to it like a band saw

Yeah it's extremely sturdy, haven't really had much actual use for it yet. Now that it's not covered in junk it can be used if I need to.
