This is great bench tool! The project comes for American Woodworker (May 2003). It is perfect tool for sanding boxes or finishing finger joints. I had a motor lying around the shop, so this drum sander was added to my shop for less than $150. A great deal and it works like a charm!

Drill Press

I needed to drill some very accurate holes and my trusty Walker-Turner does have a bit a of runout, so I picked up this bench top Drill Press on sale.
It does not have all the bell & whistles you can find on new Drill Presses today, but is a handy little machine. The laser guide cross hairs can be helpful when you have repetitive holes to drill. In addition, it is very easy to make tool-less speed changes! The built in light is slick too! I do not use the tool tray so it just sits behind.
The small machine sits on top of the cabinet above that I built for a sander I no longer have.

Bench Planer

The Delta 22-560 is one HARDEST working machine in my shop! It has never balked at any hard or soft wood that I have thrown at it. I even had it strip some high-pressure laminate off a piece of plywood—I would not want to do that everyday, but it worked just fine! I simply added a dust chute (leave it to Delta to charge $18 for a piece of plastic) and a couple ash feet so it would not mar up the cabinet tops. Great machine!
