    What tools did you buy today?

    Very lightly used 1.75hp pcs. I got the industrial base and switched out the pcs base that came with it. The previous owner made an outfeed table that comes off and folds up. A cross cut sled, 2 regular brake cartridges, 1 dado cartridge, and a dado throat plate came with it. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    How to price furniture plans?

    Plans are an easy sell. They are a do once and can continue to profit. As far as pricing that is up to what you want. Do you want to sell 10 plans at $20 or 20 plans at $10? I am more apt to place a cheap plan in my cart or multiple as opposed to buying a high prices plan. If you look around at a lot of YouTube maker plans they range from free to $20. The more popular plans like Jay Bates workbench and miter station are $20 but diy Tyler's miter station is $5 or $10. I can't remember but I had bought it. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Thanks Chris. I'm really stoked about it. Now I'll have to switch back to car and grease mode after it gets here[emoji16]. I will definitely need to power through my next few furniture projects. What's awesome in this whole thing is that I took a random week of vacation this year in July when we did our shift sign up last month. I found out on Christmas Eve that they were selling me the truck. I looked earlier this month and the truck show that we always took it to is the same week as my vacation. Too much of a coincidence!

    What tools did you buy today?

    Purchased this yesterday. It was my grandfather's who sold in back in '11 before Alzheimer's set in. 1931 Ford Model AA. Inline 4. Whopping 40hp and pretty much top speed of 40 mph. And I will love all 40 of it. It's currently a few hours north of me right now. I went to Chicago for a Lie Nielsen hand tool event and drove 40 min to see it. I paid the man and got the title in hand. He will trailer it down to me when it's nicer weather. The lettering on the side is from when my grandpa had it. It's dark green with black fender and radiator. He purchased it around 1980. Due to his Alzheimer's I can't ask him for sure. It hasn't been ran in over a year so I will need to do maintenance on it. Hopefully I will be able to get it running prior to July. My grandpa and I took it to the truckers jamboree truck show at Iowa 80 truck stop for years. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Got an Amana 20 tooth euro rip blade. I have a fine trim blade from Amana and like it. I needed a new rip blade and will see how this goes. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Picked up some Yost parallel clamps. I have some bessys and jets. I rank this with the jets. The heads don't slide down like the older bessys. The handle turns to get more clamping pressure. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    My veritas low angle smoother came in today. It's supposed to be a blemished plane. I can't find any sort of blemish on it. Also got some tool wax and a 14 degree guide. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Few good stuff today. My "blemished" veritas router plane. Found a very small casting defect in the cast iron. I'll take the defect for the discount. My low angle smoother will be here later this week. Amana 80th table saw blade. Never used Amana before from tools today com. Seems nice. Doesnt say where it is made though. Lee valley portable light. Bought this to use at the band saw and drill press. Runs on 3 AA batteries. Super bright. Also got a Makita 28th ripping blade for my track saw. No pics though.

    Looking for a planer

    Nothing wrong with the 734. I have one and it works great. If you help support the material on the in feed and out feed you won't get any snipe. I have seen no indication that it will be discuntinued. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
