Any of you into woodworking on a smaller scale?. I use a number of small
power tools (and many hand tools) in scale modeling and other small
projects. It would be interesting to hear from others involved in that
phase of our hobby. It's a little different world!

operator? I'll chec e-bay, see if they added any safety features mine
