Topic tags/keywords: question

Every year some one asks whats’s on their Christmas wish liist but I didn’t see it this year so I’ll ask, what WW item did Santa bring? I’ll start, I got what was on my list last year, a Veritas medium shoulder plane….NICE! Can’t wait to make some shavings.

I got a Fruit Cake. I may be one of the few people that eat them and don’t give them as a gift the next year.

I also got a LED light to put on my band saw. 110 and battery with 7 LEDs made by WoodRiver, magnetic base to stick to the tool.

Some 5 yr old Cheddar Cheese and some old fashioned Ginger Beer. Very stout stuff.

Santa came a few days early for me – in the form of a $250 Home Depot Gift Card. So I picked up a couple of things needed for my current project, a Dewalt Jigsaw and a set of Dado Blades.

Like Karson, I got a fruit cake also. I’m the other guy that likes fruit cake. Oh, and by the way, I got a compass for drawing circles. The grade school compass I’ve been using wasn’t working any more.

I got the horizontal router table, sold by MLCS, and the trim router kit by Marvel, MLCS, the table was easy to put together, but I haven’t tried it out yet, same with the router, it does seem to be well made, and sturdy.

Happy and content that family accepts my addiction.

Best of greeetings to all !!

Santa got me a Ridgid 6 1/8” jointer, the JP0610 that’s been on close-out…he worked the local Home Depots and lucked into one. He paid $214 for it. :)

I asked Santa why he didn’t just have his elves make one, but he said it was too heavy for those little runts!
