    A Pilgrimage To The North

    Well yesterday was my birthday, Thanks again to Darren and all of those that passed along glad tidings.

    So I figured that what better to do today than to take my birthday Moolah and head North to the Great Green Monster. "The Grizzley Store" It's about a 5 hour drive from Portland, I drove it a lot cheaper than what shipping of the Jointer and the lathe would have cost. I really wanted the 8" spiral cutter jointer, but it was just too big for the space I have available in the shop so I settled for the 6".

    And before you ask Don, Here are the Pic's!

    Wow! Nice haul Dan. I'm pretty green (no pun intended) over that lathe. Been debating about getting one for a while, not sure I have the room, but have my eye on a Ruger SR9C too.

    Congrats, Dan. That's quite the way to upgrade the shop quickly.

    Gee Dan, I was there a little after noon yesterday. I was there to pick up a router bit that I needed. We must have just missed each other.

    wow, that's a long day! Or did you stop overnight?

    Those are ginormous stores. Sure would like a spiral cutterhead myself. (Plane first, though, I think)
    There's usually more than one way to do it...
