Go with the flooring… the router will still be there but the sale on flooring won’t …IMHO only….

flooring ,

family first .

the floor will just
wear out more ,

you will become a better woodworker
with or without a new router !

and Chloe will be so happy sliding on the floor .

Do the floor, man… you know you have to! :-)

If it makes you feel better, I have to PAY Uncle Sam another $1,700.

When a person asks whether they should get the thing they want or the item they should, I know that they already know the correct decision. They just want someone to talk them out of it ;)

Take a hit for the family and I can almost guarantee that the next tool purchase you muse about out loud will not be met with dirty looks and sighs :)
