    HINT, HINT, HINT (fathers day)

    every year my kids start fishing around trying to figure out what I might want for fathers day. I always tell them nothing, save your money, take me out for a pizza, thats ok with me.

    this year Im going to give them an early hint, so in case one of them should see it here.

    Sawstop contractor saw with dado set and cast iron extension.
    Festool 75 plunge saw with at least a 72 inch track.
    Jet lathe stand with extension for JetVS1220 lathe.

    ok, thats it. I put them in order of importance to me.

    the way I figure, ask for dinner, get dinner.
    ask for sawstop, get dinner anyway.

    Plus they need to keep the factory equiped if they want all that furniture at those ridiculously low prices. Small price to pay i say.

    Good for you Allen.
    cheers

    Go for it Allen! You never know unless you ask. Look at what I just got recently. Nowhere near as much as the items your asking for cost but all I had to do was pause a little longer looking at those items while loml was around. She did completely surprise me with the digital fence.

    I think Im closing out one hobby next week so I can have the funds to support this hobby.
    Id never expect my kids to shell out that kind of dough.
