    I have been good. Tool gloat.

    When we were opening gifts on Christmas I opened a box that checks come in. Inside was a reciept and a picture of this. I had to go and get it as it wouldn't fit in the van. But hey that was no problem, it gave me another chance to go to the Woodsmith Store. I got it home, unloaded and assemblied by myself. The top is heavy, but I made it. One minor problem is the belt was too long. Called back to the store and one is headed my way from Steel City. I found one that will work in the mean time.
