    Talking Shocked, in a good way

    The other day my wife came down stairs to my shop and brought me a cup of coffee. She knows that I've been searching CL for weeks trying to find a nice used 14" bandsaw without any luck. I sold my shopsmith a few months ago and have been without one since.
    This morning at breakfast she gave me an order confirmation from Grizzly for their Polar bear 14" ultimate saw
    Seems she has been saving her "mad" money for something special for herself and she decided to spend it on something special for me. After almost 39 years she never ceases to amaze me.

    Congrats. What a keeper. I'm sure she used my shipping address. Once I have it setup and have thoroughly tested it for a year or so you can pick it up, confident that it is safe to use.

    Wow Bob, that's quite a deal. Nice saw, and your wife is definitely a keeper.
