    it took me 7-1/2 years

    I paid for a new widget today.

    It will show up on a truck next Friday.

    $31,110. Any guesses as to what my new widget is?

    What is it? I'd say it is expensive. And my guess is it is worth it. As to what, my first guess was something digital, but by your hint, I'm wrong. Dunno.

    Boy, at that price, I don't have a clue. Looking forward to seeing pics, though.

    BTW, good to see you pop in, Karl.

    I am going to go with Selco beam panel saw. Takes a sheet of ply and cuts it up into all the preset pieces for cabs. I am thinking for that price you must have purchased it off an auction.

    Thats my guess based on what i seen you do. Baby like this would make you even more productive.
