Tools I have amassed

Tools I will be using for my project. These are not essential as this plane can be built with the minimum of tools. I happen to love tools and gadgets and my collection is growing :o)


Saw table:  Bolt the old Skilsaw underneath and away you go! Not the best solution but it does do the task.
