Wink Thanks for having me :)

Hello to everyone here.
First, I'll share some of my work skills. I'm a computer graphic artist, cad/cam programmer (we use Mastercam software), hub & die maker,
and toolmaker. I've been in this businedd for 40 years, so know the rules of start and stay square.
One of my quandrys is choosing the best hinges and the right model number. I'm assuming Blum is at the top of the list? Anyway, I'm building face frame cabinets (cherry), and have browsed the Blum website for the right hinges. Perhaps some cabinetmaker out there can offer me some helpful specifics on this issue.
My new basement workshop is a bit unorganized at the moment, but most of what I will need are there; a Festool panel cutting system, General Intn'l table saw (left tilt) PC routers; fixed and portables, a Delta 1 HP dust control system, (I move it from machine to machine),
a jointer, planer and for now a small benchtop drill press and sander.
I also have a Craftsman mortising machine I got on E Bay, and that's about it. Oh, lots of Bessy clamps and others for gule ups. I'm a huge fan of Norm Abrams' New Yankee Workshop.
My last 2 big machines I feel I need is a floor size drill press, and band saw with a 14" throat.
I'm looking forward to making many new acquaintences and am hoping some of you out there will help me through this daunting first project.

Welcome to the site Harley.. Im pretty new here myself, just joined in early January. Everyone on here has been great and offer very imformative advice. There's so many different walks of life on here that I wouldn't think any question would go unanswered. How do you like the craftsman mortiser? I'm in the market for either a mortiser or a drill press with the mortiser attatchment. Any suggestions?
