    First Toy

    So about two weeks ago I spent a not insignificant wodge of my redundancy cash on a 21" Excalibur (what a difference to the Jet JSS 16 I had!!!!) and over the last 5 days I have used my spare time to make my first ever project on it.

    Hi all, just joined the forum and thought it only polite to say hello and introduce myself. Pete is the name and I am something of a novice with wood, but I have finally arrived at a place in my life where i have a little spare time and enough space in the garage to set up some tools and work...
