Slight change of plans. It's raining pretty good right now and I don't want to carry several hundred pounds of sensitive electronic equipment over in an open-bed pickup in the rain. It will have to wait for a change in the weather. :\

The HF doesn't have a good set of forstner drill bits. I was at Rockler this afternoon picking up some train track router bits and noticed that their 22-bit set (which I already have for my drill press at home) is on sale 50% off again

they're not where you'd expect them to be. not gonna post where as they're personal tools, but ask jrsphoto and he might let you use them. (frankly if you know what they are, you're not gonna bork em, but if you've no clue, you can seriously damage them or you despite their appearance a just another drill bit)

ah ok, thanks. As I said above, I already have a set and bring that in when I need it. If anyone else is interested, $60 is a steal.

Do we have a jigsaw any longer? I needed one, and spent 15 minutes looking. Also, no disc sander?

I'll totally buy and bring in a jigsaw. But do we really need 5 table saws? I bet a couple of those can go home.

Yes, JWB is woodworking.

I have a DeWalt jigsaw I can bring in, or you can stop over to borrow. I'd prefer if it didn't get left at the shop, though.

Found the saber saw, now looking for the hot glue gun.

disc sander is on the side of the shopsmith, unless you meant orbital, which is on the hand power tools shelf next to the fence.

if you mean a hand held saw with reciprocating blade, i believe there's one in a case in the power tool area, if a scroll saw will work there's a bench top one around. blades for both of those live in the tool rack with other saw blades half way down on the right.

hot glue guns shoudl live in the tool cart half way down on the left under adhesives application and removal (with the heat gun)

Christopher was using the hot glue gun last night near the tool cart, I remember he had some difficulty finding it, it was buried somewhere in the depths of the tool cart. I assume he put it back where he found it. I'll give him a quick call and see if he remembers the exact location.
If it ain't broke, your version is outdated.
