    Share your tools (toys) wishing list

    We are almost at the christmas season
    Some of us have almost finished or started
    our christmas gifts.
    However, what about us? we need some tools and
    toys.
    I hope you want to share your whising list.
    I want the following:
    two jaw sets:
    - 100mm Jaw Set
    http://www.woodcraft.com/product.asp...1&FamilyID=403
    - 75mm Bowl Jaw Set
    http://www.woodcraft.com/product.asp...2&FamilyID=403
    - 66 Piece Carbide-Tipped Router Bit Set, 1/2" Shank
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...AHJ8U&v=glance
    - Forstner bit set
    I still donīt know which brand to look for. I will appreciate any recommendation.

    I hope you want to share your tools whising list,
    in this way we can improve our list

    Time.

    Plain and simple.

    Time.

    It would be OK to have another router that I can mount in the router table I don't have time to build, but mostly, I'd just like more time to spend in the shop. Now, knowing that prayers and wishes are answered sometimes in ways that you don't expect - if anyone's listening, I really don't want more time in the shop by virtue of my being unemployed.

    bandsaw, jointer, and dust collector.

    I have to get brave enough to rip out 6 feet of cabinets first to make room.

    I bought this Forstner set on the recommendation of some people in other forums. I haven't used them yet though.

    I second that Rennie. and on top of that a table saw, a plunge router with a lift so I could make a router table, but I would postpone all of that for a good stash of lumber. Walnut, Oak, Maple, Cherry, Cocobolo, Rosewood and a bit of Ebony
    Best regards,
    Toni

    A clean and organized shop with a place for everything and everything in it's place.

    Everything laid out in a logical fashion.

    Clearly labeled storage bins for hardware so that things could be found without calling in Search and Rescue.

    Oh, and an insulated ceiling...
