This was just to good of a day to keep to myself.
My wife and I went for a drive today, met the inlaws for lunch, and were just having a nice bonding day. I needed a few more router bits for a project I am starting, so hey… Rockler is only 50 miles away, so lets drop in and see if they have them. So I was browsing the router bits, and my wife says .. “hey this stuff over here on sale, do you need any of it” I look over and she is looking at a Jet DX-1100 dust collector, and a Jet JB05-5 spindle sander. My heart flutters for a second, I quickly make eye contact with the sales guy, as if to say.. “did she just say what I think she said” and his eyes are as big as mine.. and I say.. “why yes honey, that spindle sander would be really handy for that sculpted table I am building for YOU right now, and that old King dust collector I currently have really is getting tired, and you know how tough dust is on a fellows lungs. The LOML is a nurse, and knows what is best for me (*_^) She says, “well you will not likely find a deal like this again soon, so lets just get them while we are here”. Well being the devoted guy I am, how could I argue with her logic. I was in such a daze, I damn near forgot my router bits.. LOL
Both new additions to the shop are now assembled, and ready for action.
Did I mention, that I am the luckiest guy in the world !!
