    T-Tracks with surprise!!

    Yesterday I went to the post office to pick up a parcel
    It contained a couple of T-Tracks that I ordered from Rockler taking advantage of a special offer plus free shipping within US, because I'm planning to build a router table and some jigs for it.

    I had them sent to Glenn Bradley, who kindly accepted to re-send them to me.
    Here they are.

    What was my surprise, when together with what I had ordered two more things were added.

    Glad this went over well. Toni had mentioned wanting to try some G&G stuff and I had asked him if he had a source for ebony. He mentioned something about a source 200-odd kilometers away from him (well over a hundred miles). I thought "Well, I've got some about 20-odd FEET away from me (.003 miles), how about I just toss some in".

    And I thought all the time that he asked so that I could get some for him if it was cheaper than in US!! ( Which I definitely would have done).
