So a whomping huge cheque came in the mail and right away I had to treat myself with a new toy…or two…or three. Every time I get a chance I love to upgrade the shop :) In this pic it shows the Freud router bit kit for cabinet doors ($159+tax), an 8” dado blade set ($80), and a great deal on clamps (8 clamps in the kit for $35). I also bought odds n ends for the shop (sandpaper etc.) I just had to tell someone :)
