Well I made it back from the show this past weekend, and the damage wasn’t as bad as I thought. I only went over my budget by a $100,my budget was 200(I hope my wife doesn’t read this). I spent my entire sum at the Lie nielsen booth about ten minutes into the show. I was there for 2 hours. So the last hour and forty minutes wasn’t much fun for me. I went with a buddy or I would have left. But I’m pleased to say that I’m very happy with my newly aquired tools. I have to admit that i’m a label whore. I doubt very much that LN card scrapers are better then anyone elses. But I happen to like this specific company. I will go out on a limb and say there boggs spokeshave is the nicest handling tool I have ever used. Along with those purchases i grabbed a new block plane(this was the impulse buy that put me over) and a tool care kit. Again, I could compile my own for less then what hey sell it for but what the hay. After blowing my money, I did see a lot of things that i probably needed more. But this is a lifetime hobby, there will be plenty of more shows and time to accumulate more stuff.
