Next Monday is my birthday.

My daughter asked me to update my wishlist on amazon.com.

It made me wonder what you guys would put on your wishlist.

Here’s mine:

Fun list! Mine would look almost identical, plus a biscuit joiner and a compressor-nailer combo.

Reggiek,

I would rather have an 8” jointer too. I just wanted to keep all the items on my list under $300. If they buy me 6” jointer I’d happily take it.

Scrabby,

I’ve always wanted a biscuit cutter but then I saw Marc Spag's podcast about the Festool Domino so now I’m undecided.

Truth be told I’m not very good with a biscuit cutters we have here at the shop. When I made the GFC I had recut a lot of the slots because the joints weren’t flush. I’m sure I’d get better with practice but I was hoping the Domino would just be easier to register.

Great list Chunk.

I added your Incra Miter Gauge and the JessEm Master-R-Lift to my list.

Thanks for the ideas,

Bothus

I just put my PC biscuit for sale to a few friends….didn’t want a bunch of yo yo’s from craigslist like I had last time…..I just find that I don’t use it very much….I am really glad I passed on the domino earlier….lots of money…but not alot of good machine….I think you are better off making your own tenons and mortises….or using splines….the only time I use the PC is for lining up sheets….but it is a pain to set up…change knives if I need too…so on and so on…....just an opinion I have formed on these tools that they take more time to use then if you just did the stuff yourself…

Matt, I thought you guys in Napa Vally had nothing but time. That’s what it shows in all the ads.

Jim, I thought people in Oregon didn’t care about money. You mean you guys don’t live in communes and smoke dope anymore?

Reg, you might be right about that. There are lots of other ways to make joints.

I have several of your choices on my list as well… read all reviews on that Delta jointer.. I was looking into one of those but was not impressed with the feedback… good luck with your list

Glad you like. Feel free to fill any one or all of those! Oh yeah my B-Day is x-mas too so you can get both occasions at the same time. ;)
