Just sold this:

And bought this:

I’m not even anywhere near retirement either! :)

I blame my 3 yr old son and a lack of space in the garage for more tools. ;)

I think you misunderstand the concept of ‘old’... look it up in the dictionary!

I think you meant you’re officially ‘wise’ !

...and look at the garage floor beckoning to be filled with sawdust making tools! You have space and tools coming in, oh the excitement! (I have not seem my floor for years and was just wondering if it was concrete or wood… ; ) Happy sawdust making!

No, old is when your babies start having babies. Our eldest daughter made us new grandparents at the end of June.

With all the aunts and grandma, Olivia has no hope but to be totally spoiled. Not that I would have anything to do with this. And yes, I do tell the four daughters that my gray hair is their fault.

CutNRun…Great looking family you have there. My son is the only grandchild on both sides, so we understand spoiled-rotten. I’d swear those people impersonating my parents aren’t the ones who raised me! I never got away with the stuff Alex does, or got half the toys! :)

LOL…isn’t that the truth. I used to watch my parents with my son when he was a young child and even now and wonder “Who are you and what have you done with my parents”

Well Greg, your not alone…I am also selling some toys I don’t play with anymore and will be putting in my Grizzly order soon. That bike looks like it was allot of fun to ride…..but I am sure you will enjoy the woodworking equipment as much as the bike. I hope to get a new table saw, and a jointer out of my “over the hill” sale! I bet you cant wait to get your new toys!

The open-side drum sander is something I’m really interested in trying. It’s expensive, and not a tool in the typical hobbyist’s arsenal. I debated getting a nice cabinet saw, but I’m currently pleased with my setup and the big cabinet saws eat too much space in my garage. The sander is relatively small, and should allow me to get a smooth finish on panels up to 36”! I also debated getting one of those jointer/planer combos, but my separate units work fine so I put that one off.

I think you’ve definately got a better deal than the person who bought the bike!

Beautiful family you have there! Best of health to all of you!

Now get that woodshop set up and get to work!

Did you go to Grizzly’s showroom? We need to take a trip up to the PA location soon. I know it’s going to be a dangerous one.
