« Part 1: know you are hooked when... Part 2 of Hand Tools.... series no next part

I just got word that my #7 I bought is being mailed…is it wrong to be this excited? I gotta go build more room into the hand plane storage shelf?

It’s a wards-master…but it was only $20…so if I can tune it to a good user…I’m $ ahead…

No it’s not wrong. When I get that email with a tracking number for a new tool I ordered, I get giddy.

The other day I ordered a new marking gauge and it was missing a couple set screws for the mortise blades. I got the email with the tracking number for the set screws and got excited :).

That’s pretty good, I check the tracking numbers also, it’s picked up(good) it’s in NJ, it left NJ, it’s on the west coast, It has left the west coast,(that’s 500 mph and 2500 miles,hmmm) I try and calculate the time the plane should pass overhead and go outside with the binoculars, just on the chance I see the plane by, just to make shur all the doors are closed and all, it’s on Oahu and finally it makes to the big island and I call UPS and offer to meet the driver somewhere, because I know I could shave one, maybe two hours off the delivery.
So as far as being excited, I’m afraid you are alittle too calm.

I love it! I wish they’d let see the GPS tracking info, I know they have on their trucks!

Ahh, gotta love the new tool expectations! My father warned me about that. He told me that once I got into woodworking I would always want a new/better/unique tool to some job better/faster/safer/more efficiently. Boy was he right! Ain’t it grand!

God Bless,
