Hi All,

Well another birthday has come and so far it hasn’t been bad. I got the Kreg Rocket pocket jig. Can’t wait to use it. I have been wanting to get the kreg pocket hole kit for a long time. I think that my woodworking skills are about to take a new turn. By the way I just turned 42 today. UUUUUUGHHH!! I am certainly starting to feel my age.

I’d love to feel 42 again! Happy Birthday. If you’ve ever read, heard or watched the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” you would know that 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything! Have a good one.

Thank you everyone I am of the belief that you are not old until you are dead. But getting there sure hurts some times :-) The rocket pocket that I have is just a regular bit. Got it from woodcraft for 30.00 bucks. It was originally 60.00 bucks.
