Wow! Anything with the Fluke name here is over $100!
Tools and some exercise ..... you did great.

Yeah, Fluke is made in the US and they are quality manufacture, this one even after many years of use is still accurate to an inch. I'm glad to have it in my tool bag.

I would like to thank Gaffer too for also volunteering to go get a box from HD for me. This is the bottom 2 drawers my BP horizontal attachment, and the full cutter drawer.
Awesome that you too stepped up to the plate to help him out.

My first planer was an old Belsaw. Heavy but worn badly. One of the jack screws was stripped but I used it for several years.

What I was able to find online, Belsaw did not make the greatest planers ever made, but they were pretty good, tough and simple to maintain. That convinced me this would be a good candidate to restore and worth the effort to drag home.

I've been woodworking since I was a kid so 40 some years, but planers, and jointers are a new thing for me.

I would like to thank Ray(extropic) for offering to go out of his way to purchase, and deliver a US General tool chest to the pier for me. We went to the closest store, and bought whatever color they had in stock. I could have bought a Husky with their drawer layout for 139.00, but I have wanted to try the US General, I'm not disappointed, and it's cheaper than a Snap-On.
I think these are a great value!

They weigh more than I was expecting!

I don't buy much from Harbor Fright bot the US General tool box is a nice box. I have a Blue one same size as the one that Aukai has.

Um, that shelf is pretty spindly looking. Is it structurally adequate for that box once it's full of tools? Great boxes
though: I bought one about 8 years ago and I think it's great.
