      exactly.
      I couldn't find a quazz machine and all the Wile E Coyote's were ACME brand.

          • There's no fun in buying an off-the-shelf box joint jig!!

            I watched a shop tour video last night and it's the first time I'd seen incra stuff - don't think Rockler carries it, and I'm in there fairly often. Might have to consider looking in to it..

            Which would you prefer?

              When I'm too old to have other kinds of fun, I'll look into these Amish tools. Until then . . .

                I built a tenon jig and a table saw sled and a dado sled but the Incra box joint jig is far better than one I could build. The tolerances on box joints are so tight and I like to be able to adjust and fine tune precisely.
                I agree with you in general though, I have a lot of machines but I like to minimize their use. My heart is in hand tools but machines do the real grunt work like milling boards and they do things so quickly.

                  I just picked up a scrub plane. I think I am getting ready to find out how fun hand tools can be. At the very least I will get a good workout.

                    Hand planes are awesome but a skill that has to be learned and can be very frustrating until you get it. I absolutely love using them, the long curls of wood and the absence of machinery trying to de-limb and deafen me completely) and the finish is beautiful (or totally f'd up) . Tuning and sharpening to a fine edge them is an essential skill or they will be just pretty blocks of iron.
                    There is something deeply satisfying about hand planes and the varieties of them but I am just not great at it yet.

                            • I'm at my folks house as i type this and had to ask for their forgiveness for buying something like this. My parents raised me better but it was cheap and will be flipping this one once the weather gets nicer and folks start getting their tax returns.
