    So, what did you open it with - an axe?

    BTW, the finish on that was that Enduro waterborne lacquer, right off the gun.

    You wasn't supposed to open it. Thats why it was glued shut.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    If I'm not mistaken...tools like that require an 'air' tight box for shipping...congrats to you & kudos to Jim

    If it was me sending that box, I would have put a bunch of slot head wood screws around the edges. Not to hold anything together...just to make it look like they were holding something together. And just to make things a bit more interesting for Larry.

    Great gesture, Jim.

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.
