new tool purchase
Today i finally bought the tools for my new shop. A griz 20" planer, Griz 12" jointer(yes i said 12"), griz 19" bandsaw, and a 5hp Oneida Dust Collector. I just finished wiring and drywalling my new shop and Im finally ready to put it all together. Oh yeah i also purchased a x5 unisaw about 2 months ago that is still sitting in the crate! This is my first post, so hello everyone.

Sounds great! Are you going to post any photos?

jraksdhs 04-14-2009 11:09 PM

I'll take photos when i start bringing equipment in and setting up. This has been a dream of mine for some time. Im acually more excited about the DC than anything....kinda wierd i guess!

Welcome to the forum. But you know what they say without pictures it never happened. :laughing:

Very nice, I do agree, although not a Oneida, I do love my dust collector. Makes life much easier. Post pics of the shop, I do love seeing some of the new custom built shops, gives me hope of one day being able to build a from scratch "shop".......

Christmas in April....
Everything is arriving tomorrow(friday). I couldnt believe that it was so fast. The UPS freight lady called this morning to verify a delivery for the griz stuff.....then 2 minutes later she called to verify the stuff from Oneida. She said tomorrow must be christmas for you!! I laughed along. I'll have pictures tomorrow of the everything in crates but its still gonna be a few weeks before i unpack and set everything up. I couldnt pass up the free shipping from griz....thats why i got everything now. More soon.......

here everything is....surprisingly everything arrived undamaged. I've heard some horror storys about grizzly crating their large tools, and although they werent perfect everything is ok. The oneida stuff is of course the DC, yay!!!!

I think I just wet myself!
Dude, is your wife happily married? :laughing: Awesome tools, not a bad tractor either. Mine is green also! My JD tractor had to lift my shop tools up to the 2nd floor. At least the rest of your shop looks a lot like mine.....lots of stuff. Good for you, may you use them enjoyably and safely. That big stuff can be a little intimidating at first. The first time I cut a scrap of knotty pine on my new 12" 5HP powermatic 68, it kickedback, literally exploded as the wood pinched the back of the blade.:eek: It always has the spiltter on now!:yes: Best to Ya,:thumbsup: bill

Man ,what do you do for a living ?I'm having a hard time digging the money up for a $1000.00 tool and your blowing thousands ,good for you and Merry Christmas :thumbsup:
Did you win the lottery ? Inherit some money ,sell the old lady.
You sure as heck are not in the trades .:laughing:

jdixon 04-21-2009 11:26 PM


Alright that's awesome. Congrats on the new tools. Can't wait for the setup pictures!!!


john5mt 04-22-2009 01:00 AM

oh wow that 12" jointer is AWESOME:notworthy:

how did you convince your woman to let you spend that much coin at once?!?!?

She must have a furniture list for you to build for her a mile long

I acually work for myself, mainly doing home remodeling and repairs. I stay pretty busy and so far the economy hasnt effected me as much. My grandfather was a contractor but by no means a woodworker. I remember stumbling across an episode of New yankee workshop when i was about 10 and i was hooked. Many birdhouses later and here we are. The main reason for the large tool purchase was to open my own cabinet and furinture shop. I've done alot of kitchen and bath remodels and figured this would be a good way to offer cabinets to my customers. Plus it gives me another reason to stay out of the house! So far the tools arent doing to bad. I uncrated then and fired em to just make sure nothing was terribly wrong. I have to finish drywalling the ceiling then the DC system can be installed and everything else can be done. Thanks for the interest....will post more pictures later!!

Sleeper 04-22-2009 08:00 AM

Oh ya! You should be able to do some serious stuff with this collection. My grandfather had tools like that and he made a very good living making custom stairs. Congratulations!

BobbyfromHouston 04-22-2009 08:35 AM

Thanks for the pics. Please send more as you open everything up and set it all up. I would just love to see that 12" jointer. Just wondering why you didn't go with Grizzly for the DC system. I know Oneida is awesome just wondering if you had specific reasons like them designing the system or something. Please more pics soon.

Leakygoose 04-22-2009 10:11 AM

Thats great ,I also thing that 12'' joiner is awesome. Considering the wood I've had to straighten,that wold make it a breeze.:thumbsup:

The power Company is going to Love you
They will probably have to put up a new transformer on your pole, and you many have to ask the neighbors to shut down some stuff when you are "working" :laughing: to free up some extra watts. Obama will find a way to tax you for consuming the extra watts.:censored: Don't get me started! :thumbdown: bill

BobbyfromHouston 04-22-2009 03:25 PM

I have that Grizzly 19x2. I hope you got the correct mobile base for it. The one they tell you is too small or at least for the last year. I love that bandsaw.
