Last night me and my wife decided to go into town(we live about 10 miles out) for supper and on to WalMart(I hate that place-only good for grocries). After supper I told her Lowes and Home Depot before WM.
Wasn’t lookin’ for anything in particular, just stalling to go to WM. Went to H.D. first(they’re right across the road from each other), and graivated to the tools. Left her somewhere,didn’t look. For all you young newleywed fellows, you can do that after 33 years of marriage. They don’t care!!!! Stolling down the isle, I spied a Freud “Diablo” 8” dado set with all the blades. $100. Didn’t need it— just looked. Ok—here we go to Lowes. Same senario. At the saw blades I saw a Freud 8 ” Pro Dado set hanging there—SD-208 for $ 59 bucks, and the only one left!! Clearence. I asked “is this right on the dados”? Yep—no more to be had. I didn’t need it, but buddy, I snagged that sucker like it was the last bisquit on the plate!!!! Found my wife, said ” I’m ready to go now”, and made a mad dash to the cashier. Now I have 3 dado sets. This fat blind hog did find an acorn. It’s a good thing I don’t get to town very often.

Bummer. Thought that since you already had more dado sets than you needed and still bought more, I thought that you were a prospect to add more stuff to your collection. :)

Well I might give this one to my son for Christmas as he’d wanting to get into woodworking more> he does some, but job restraints and no shop kinda keeps him from it. Come up with another deal—we might can work something out! lol .
