Thread: Are tools gloats allowed?

    Are tools gloats allowed?

    I'm not sure where or if tool pre-gloats are allowed........So I don't know if it's okay to tell you that my MIL generously gave me a nice sum of money and I just used it to order a complete Jamieson hollowing rig, including laser and scraper blade and how-to video. Is this allowed and if so where do I post it?

    No....My wife is the only girl....she has no sisters....

    I moved your post to the proper forum so when it does happen you can show us the pictures..

    Actually Ken, I think tool gloats are encouraged. (Providing there's photographic proof ) It allows the rest of us who are financially challenged to live vicariously though the posts.

    John.......I'll post photos when it's delivered! I just ordered it this morning. The only reason I was able to get this is because my MIL gave me an extemely generous Christmas gift! And since I got into turning about 11 months ago.....I UNDERSTAND financial challenges! Wasn't a problem before .....

    Of course tool pre-gloats are allowed. Congrats on the upcoming new hollowing rig. (I've got a rig on order, too, and my MIL is paying for about half of it.)

    I wish I was also getting the PM 3520 to go with it (and I'd wait for fall too, if that's what it would take to get one).

    Heck yeah they are allowed Ken...Very nice of your MIL to give you such a generous gift. I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll be turning with your new gloat....we'll waive the pics verification for a bit, just be sure we see them as soon as it gets delivered.

    Congrats Ken!

    And for those playing along at home, this is the difference between a MIL (what Ken is blessed with) and a MILFH which I'm saddled with

    I mean, you MIL you money......

    Sorry.......that does not compute...........

    Pics please when you get it, as you may know, I'm looking to build one, and need all the ideas I can get!

    Cheers!
