Old guy, first forum
Hello! I'm retired from teaching from 6th grade to university level. I've been involved in building on a lot of levels too. My wife and I built, with help of course, a 10 room house years ago. I want to build a variety of things in a modest shop, and add to my tools as I go. I just got a bench top 12" planer for Christmas (hand fed.) I have an old but good Dewalt radial arm saw 9", fairly new drill press, old 1/4" shank router and a bunch of old hand tools.
I'm a private pilot, but can't pass the physical any more, a radio ham (not very active) and nerdy stuff in general. I guess it's to be expected that I like to use old hand tools.
Enough of that, more than anyone wants to know.
I just remembered that I should say where I am in the Good Old USA. We're in north Texas, about 30 miles nort of Dallas. We've been here about five months. Our son retired from the army (LTC, a little bragging there.) He now works closer to Dallas. So, we're close to the grandkids. That is the main story here.
