Jack, Check out Harbor Freight. They have made in China tools that are in most cases adequate and functional. Most are direct knock-off's of the big guys for lots less money. You may need to find out how to fine tune the tools once you have them, but most everyone's need that anyway. Much more bang for the buck, and they seem to rotate "sales" on all their tools month to month, so if you can wait, you'll save another third to one half.

Jack, Do you get the Indianapolis Star? I have noticed that there are quite a few tools for sale in the classifieds.

I live in Franklin, IN, by the way. Where are you?

Jack, Just got the current Harbor Freight catalog today. They have their 14" bandsaw with stand on sale for $219.00 (Delta look/work-alikw) and a 16 speed full size floor drill press for $179.00 There are Harbor Freight stores in Evansville and Ft. Wayne.
