I still want that nice thick slab of walnut I saw at the Sawyers we visited at the Michigan Lumberjock Picnic. I got an email from Kelvin and he got rid of that slab he had that was about 2 1/2 inches thick and the straightest grain I have ever seen, oh and 6 foot long. I digress, Kelvin emailed me last week and said we could get together this week and I could come over this week and he had other slabs I could look over and get, plus some firewood, plus some nice burls he had for my lathe work. Sooo I guess it was a good idea to make friends with Kelvin. He thanked me for bringing all my Lumberjock buddies over and I was welcome anytime, we were welcome anytime. Well I am looking forward to my day alone with Kelvin to peruse his goods at my leisure this coming week, and I have to thank all my Michigan Lumberjock Buddies for it. You guys made him my friend and I do appreciate it, so I do owe you all a thank you. But I’m sure he’ll treat any of you the same, if you go out there, right Steve? Mike

I need a new edge sander … 2hp motor went for a walk,

...found a new motor on GRIZZLY for $227, maybe I’ll try and fix my old one.

My old sander, looks exactly the same as a GRIZZLY 6×80, except it is gray and the motor is 1 1/2hp and more modern.

I want a Leigh D4R 24” dovetail jig with all the accessories. Norton waterstones, I am using sandpaper and getting less than perfect results. The sandpaper works well, I just think I can do better with a good set of stones. Lotsa wood…...the more the better. Mobile base for my table saw would be good too

good for you , mike .
that other slab probably wasn’t as nice as this new one .

dan , it sounds like fixing the motor might be cheaper .
unless you can convince the boss about a new sander in your stocking ?

me , i’d like one of those helpers larry has ,
so i can spend my time doing important things !

For a good cheap mobile base do what I did. Go to HF pick up a couple of their furniture movers for 20 bucks put brakes on it if it needs it, mount your machine on it and there you go. It will even raise it about 2 or 3 inches but then you won’t have to bend over so much if you’re like me, 6 foot 1 inch.

In this family, I am Santa! With everyone else to take care of, I can’t afford a stocking for myself, much less anything to put in it. Kids and grandkids always have a good Christmas and that’s what counts.

David, what’s with the sarcasm? I sure as hell did not try to be responsible for everyones feelings. I’m a pilar of nothing. I don’t pretend to be such. If you are calling me out on something get a little more specific. I don’t try to get into arguements with anyone. So what are you trying to say?

mike , i meant no offense ,
and don’t think i was implying anything .
i was just responding to your apology about maybe offending .
if i have somehow been out of line ,
please forgive me .

i too want everyone to have a peaceful and fulfilling holiday .
as far as being a pilar ,
all i meant is that you are even tempered , responsible , and thoughtful ,
in the dealings and comments here on LJ’s ,
and i appreciate that .
i do joke around at times ,
but again forgive me if i have offended somehow .

If Santa visits, I would like a less creaky body. My parts are starting to fall off.

Tool wise, how about a Festool orbital sander with vacuum, a 6” jointer with spiral cutterhead, new table saw and a partridge in a pear treeeeee. Oh darn there goes the cats after the partridge, and the pear tree will have to be planted in outside. (Due to down sizing my houseplants, I sent my 5 ft. loquat tree to Florida with my girlfriend in her car last month. Got a postcard and they’re both doing well.)
