When the holiday season comes along we often find we have more to give to than we afford – especially this year. Big expensive gifts are out of the question this year, but a small bargain gift may be appropriate to let someone know you have not forgotton them. After all any gift given, however small will be appreciated.
I have listed some very inexpensive items that are very usable. Take a look and see if any of them fill your needs.

This item would be great for the well heeled “high end” woodworker.

You can never have too many clamps

Give it a punch

Karson’s Clippers

Gouging something

D Pins

D more Pins

Spring is here

Striking or Marking?

A little bit handy

Never too many


Great for making Rockler or DeGoose “coasters”
Hope you find some useful.. Merry Christmas.

Guess I’m going to have to go to HF and get some cheap goodies. It’s hard to screw up a clamp, I think?

Topamax: If you go to HF just look around and you’ll probably find some inexpensive items that are pretty good and which someone would use. I don’t get any power tools from HF but I do get consumables there as they are at a good price point and you’re only going to throw them away when used. You have to watch your pennies today!!
Sorry Larry about no HF in Oz.
