Wuuuhuu today i recived my bevel chilsels from LN and a standard marking gauge,and mini marking gauge from Glen Drake. I wont put on pictures since ill bet everyone know them,but uhhh it is so nice :)

The chisels are exaly so welmade and beautifull as i had hoped for and the marking gauges too.

I was in doubt wether i schould buy Ln or veritas gauge. The veritas is half the price so i was looking and thinking and bla bla bla.I was not so happy with the design from veritas but the price is good. Finally my choise was LN and i am very happy for that :D

Made of brass and stainless stell and everything slide so smooth and the microadjustment works perfekt(dont know how important that is but time vill show)

Then i was in store with tools here in Denmark and they had a lot stuff on sale. I was looking a there was a Feestool sortiment box. last time i looked at one it costed almost 200 dollars and i will never pay that much for a Festool box even this is nice with different sizes of drawers,and small signs to write on whats in the box and so on.

I asked what the prize was but they didnt knew that. Well said the Lady in the store its just an emty box so you can get it for 8dollars…..:D:D:D

So today i am wery happy and enjoying my new stuff :D
