My Dad gave me a Tormek SuperGrind 2000 with a bunch of accessories/jigs. 150 RPM wet grinder on the right, leather honing wheel on the left. I reshaped an old dinged-up axe to a razor-edge in about 10 minutes and it held the edge perfectly against an apple stump.

View attachment 345427 super charger and two 8.0s came today.
NICE!

Picked up a jigsaw today from Rural King. $20 cheaper than Home Depot and Northern Tool.

Also picked these up off FB market place for a good deal. Replaced the bench seats I had been sitting on. These are at least work table height.

In my shop
Got these in 2019. Not sure how I did AN lines before them.

Chuck these in your vise and push your an hose right in. Super easy.

Used the router, the jig saw and the trimmer this evening. EXTREMELY happy with those purchases.

Well, actually the oldest daughter used the trimmer. She got to learn how to weed eat this evening. Before she was done I had her switch to the old poulan gas job to finish so she knew how good she has it. 1 8aH battery did 90% of the yard. I'm pleased with that!
