I saw this really nice laguna lath for sale in south florida. its kinda far from me and I would probably only be willing to pay $500 and he wants $650 but it looks great and has a 16" swing. I just want it so bad. I don't have a real need for it but I have not stopped thinking about it.
I don't actually need any of my shop tools but I sure love them. I use almost all of them from time to time but they are a hobby and have earned me very little money compared to the cost. One of my first posts when I decided to join this site was about a giant dewalt RAS that I bet most of you would have passed on at any price. I have not completed (or actually started) my plans for it but the way I talk about the thing you would think it was my giant cast iron son. I love having it. I just don't have time to set it up properly. Did I ever mention it does over a 36" cross cut? . I've already started its college fund (please don't tell my wife. she thinks I'm crazy enough already)
I know I'm not the only guy or gal with this problem. Not the college fund thing. I was just kidding about that.
Do any of you have any good examples of tools you just had to have so you bought them and love them despite their uselessness?
Any excellent excuses to buy a lath you KNOW you have no need for?
