Casters - Low Profile
These are great if all you want is to move something in a straight line. And they hold a lot of weight.


Center Finder (Robert Larson)
Cheap and extremely useful.


Center Hole Punch
I like this adjustable center punch, but since you adjust it by turning the red handle, the handle has a tendency to come unscrewed. So I used some Loctite on one punch for normal use, and bought a second punch for when I need to adjust it.

Jorgensen clamps are great.


Clamp - 18" (Jorgensen)
Jorgensen clamps are great.



Clamp-It Corner Clamping Jig (Rockler)

Drill Bit Set - Forstner - 14 Piece (Porter-Cable)
I haven't tried these, but it looks like a good set.

This is my favorite by far. Easy to use with only your hands.

Incra 6" Precision Marking T-Rule

LED Shop Lights
These are what I use in my shop, and I really like them.

Loctite Threadlocker Blue
The "Blue" version lets you unscrew the screw if you need to.

I used this for a couple of years, and it's great.

Double-sided tape. It's removable, but it can be fairly strong, too. It's thick, though, so be aware of that.



Threaded Inserts
Box of 100 1/4"-20 x 1/2" zinc threaded inserts with no flanges.



Tool Drawer Liner (Harbor Freight)
Always use a coupon at Harbor Freight. The 20% off one, or if you’re lucky, a 25% off one.
