Update 2017-11-21 OK.. one more update before my Thanksgiving break. I hope everyone out there has a fantastic Thanksgiving with friends and family. Sit back and enjoy it before the holiday madness begins and we time-warp to January 2. This update includes some really nice saws both new and old. I also have some good edge tools, molding planes, and other fun stuff. Please note.. the auto-focus on my camera is apparently not working consistently and a few pictures have wound up blurry without my noticing it. I apologize for that and will try to get it fixed. This camera has 200k+ pictures under its belt so I suppose I do not owe it much! Thanks as always for reading. --Josh
