    Wish lists be warned....

    I know many of you have wish lists with online suppliers. Well just a word of caution before sharing these with spouses for the purchase of presents make sure that you update the list and remove anything you wanted that was lets say and outside long shot that maybe someday would be nice but not right now. I got caught and now i am getting some disconnected items that because the spouse dont know whats what cannot even be used on their own.

    Some how i knew this would bite me. Gotta remember its the thought that counts.
    cheers

    Yeah but it is a good excuse to purchase the rest of the needed items so they feel good about you using their present!

    Got a pack of jigsaw blades, but no jigsaw? No problem...jigsaws can be purchased.

    Got a marking knife but no dovetail saw? No problem...I've seen them for sale.

    Incra miter gauge and no tablesaw? That can be fixed, too.

    I'm sure hoping LOML buys me the Sawstop replacement cartridge I have on my wishlist.

    Got to agree with Jonathan. The first Christmas that we were married I had talked about a port-a-lign to drill straight holes. My honey brought the unit and I had to tell her that I didn't have afrill to use it with. A day or two later I bought the drill.
