    Christmas is coming

    With Christmas coming and the Mrs. asking last night what I'd like I wondered what you may be asking for Christmas in the area of woodworking tools or supplies?

    As for myself I told her a Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig would be great.....and I told her if anyone else wanted to know, some more Bessey K-body clamps (or similar) would also be good....how about you?

    I maintain a long list of things that I have registered in an on line "wish list" at Lee Valley. I make sure that there is a range of inexpensive to expensive items. I have maintained such a list for many years and my family as well as a few friends find it very helpful.

    I just checked my current list and it contains 27 items ranging in price from $3.95 (a drill press sanding drum) to $245.00 (a Veritas twin-screw vise).
    Cheers, Frank

    I am asking for one thing and it's not exactly woodworking related. A good roll around tool box. Now that I have a good shop I am in desperate need of good storage for my mechanical type tools. Pretty good shape otherwise.

    I would like an air compressor, around 60g. But that's not something my wife would buy me. My wofe and I don't trade gifts, that's reserved for the little ones.

    Like tod, the tools are my bag.

    I don't ask for tools. No. No way in heck. No. Did I say no?

    I've been in enough hot water over the years from MY tool purchases.

    25 years I spent money on Snap-On tools.

    The last 15 have been woodworking tools.

    So I really don't ask, or even suggest anything.

    Unless the subject of cookies come up, then I'm begging

    I'm good on tools, my thing is bike stuff. Not the kind Kevin is into, mine is the human powered kind. A gift certificate at the LBS is what I will be asking for.

    Our "little ones" are now grown up adults and both moved out as soon as Steve Jr's. house was done. Gonna be a different vibe around our house this year, first time in 25 years no kids at home on Christmas morning.
