    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

      A short tour of my shop with the wall of sleds and jigs. Half the fun of making something is making something to make it with. IMG_2121.MOV

        Two oscillating sanders!

        And "Half the fun of making something is making something to make it with."... That's me.

      I’ve had the Wen for a year or so but just got the Ridgid last week for a steal. $150:and that included the cabinet and three boxes of Klingspoor belts!

        You certainly did get an amazing deal on that Rigid!

        So you have a dedicated oscillating spindle sander, and a dedicated oscillating belt sander it looks like to me!

      The rigid is also a spindle sander but why bother to switch it out when I have the other.

      LCHIEN He is aplying the you can't have too many clamps approach to sanders.... LOL...

      Actually I have had my Rigid now for well over a decade and I think I have used the spindles 3 times... Nice to have, not enough to justify a separate machine though...

      All kidding aside though, Dedpedal are you planning on keeping both sanders or is the Rigid gonna do the entire duty for you? I've got multiple routers to save switchover time between them, so no judgement here, just curiosity on other peoples approach and solutions to solving problems...

        I haven’t decided just yet. As long as there’s room I’ll keep it. Like your routers( I have 4), it’ll save on time. If I luck into a drum sander I’ll be selling a number of tools to make room for it.

          I am building this cutoff storage cart for which I need to cut these 4" PVC pipes at 45 degrees.

          Finding great applications for my PC Bandsaw ! But I know cutting round stock can be dangerous on a bandsaw. Additionally, I want to be able to cut 45 degrees again and again. So here is a jig I built which is working out great.

            But why the 45 bevel? Looks?

          LCHIEN: Here is why 45 degree bevel. Saw this picture on Pinterest and looked like a cool idea to store all my cutoffs. I am guilty of saving so many of them. Storing and Finding the right size is a challenge though. The bevel also helps with driving screws when assembling.
