I am really interested in learning myself. I hope you follow up with your thoughts on this.

ChrisK, I will follow-up in the welding sub forum, to be honest though, I have such limited experience with welding, I don't have a base.

what I will comment on, is how it works for a newbie!

@BMack37 glad they made it to you. You never sent that payment info and I saw where you said you were looking for another set. emoji16.png

haha, I like donuts but maybe have one per year and only because it was presented to me(and it has to be homemade style or krispy kreme). I don't eat cake either, that I'm just not a huge fan...but gummies, I'm rarely not in possession of gummy bears or worms.

@Conductor562 That is a very nice saw, my father in law has that and I've only used it once in awhile and cleaned up the cast top after it had accumulated some rust, but I find no real flaw in that saw

I ordered several dozen Flying Dutchmen blades for it, but even with the factory blades it cuts nice. Once I get a little practice, I think it'll be an enjoyable hobby.

Picked up some 3/4" pipe and pipe clamps today to help with the gaming table build. Clamps are 7ft long so I felt the 3/4" pipe would flex less.

Also got the microjig match fit clamps and of course a Whiteside dovetail router bit for it. 08b20b88ab2ee84d93b52f9d91d1659b.jpg

Those Matchfit clamps are great, they work in the dovetails and can be used with a  Paulk or MFT style table and are a few dollars less than the similar Festool clamps are.

Did you get the Hitachi combo? That is the larger one in the pic. I would like to see some type of review on the router.

Awesome. Still like to hear your thoughts on it. I would like a 2 1/4 hp router. The Triton is just too big to use out of the router table.
