    It's too bad these dang polls only give 6 (SIX) choices!

    It would make them more accurate if they had more!

    yeah, its a disease. 13/36 lathe, xlo mill, drill press, surface grinder, t&c grinder, shear, arbor press, horizontal bandsaw, compressor, bench grinders, belt sander, O/A & stick welder, and not much space left in a two car garage. still need to collect electronics stuff and woodworking, lack of space is saving me from acquiring more!

    Allright Adobe Machine...nice selection of tools.....well the problem is the kids will most likely not know the value of any of our machines and will sell them for pennies on the dollar once we are history......

    Are you in New Mexico?
