Just got a new chop saw and drill press

Still adding stuf to my shop I was cutting metal with a 4.5 in grinder so the new 14 in chop saw is a definate improvement. The dril press is not a high dollar model but it is much better than the 14v portable I was using and the speed goes down to 250rpm... Oh no Guess I will have to buy a tubing bender now>>>>>>>>>>>>>

97 TJ 31's and mostly stock but seeing what I can do about that..

Re: Just got a new chop saw and drill press

Now that you have a drillpress you can use sharp drillbits without taking your arm off, that's a plus.

I got a real nice drill index for my birthday, I love it.

Re: Just got a new chop saw and drill press

The Chop saw is a bench mounted 14 in model It works great.

On the drill press I went against my own advice and bought a clark because it was affordable. it is a floor model 5/8 chuck with a lamp and a few extras. It cost me 136.00 at quality. It was the onlything in a floor model that I could find for under 300$$ I t is working well and anything is an improvement over what I had.....

Cool! A man can never have enough tools. It's the next best thing to new jeep stuff. And when you get them, you need the tools. It's a viscous circle.
