I see a LOT of tools listed on EBay from a company called "O'Malley".
They do state that their tools are from China and Taiwan, but for some
reason they do look a bit better than some (I am speaking about the
biscuit joiner and the plunge router specifically).
I find it strange that there is essentially no chatter anywhere about
them being good or not.
Anyone tried either the biscuit joiner and/or the plunge router from
I bit the bullet and purchased their biscuit joiner about 8 months ago.
Since I never used any of the other big name joiners, I can't compare,
but I'm very pleased with this tool. I've probably only cut about
40-50 slots with it so far, but it's worked perfect up to now.

I've heard relatively good reviews on these tools. You get what you pay
for, but I think they are on-par or better than what you generally get
from Harbor Freight, which in my opinion is reasonably good stuff for
the weekend woodworker.
It's a part of the "Preferences" set up supplied by AOL, but they're not the
only ones supplying it. Locate Preferences on your main Newsgroup screen and
open it. It's just to the right of "Parental Controls". AOL's version has three
options. Pick "Posting". Insert whatever you want your signature to be, save,
and click on "Use signature" down in the left hand corner of the response box.
