    The LOML & I celebrated our

    24 wedding anniversary today by taking the day off of work & just getting away.

    We went & looked at modular homes & had lunch & stopped at a Barnes & Noble Book store & a few other places & then & then & then supense.............................

    I went to one of my favorite stores today about an hour from home.

    Yep I walked right up to old Griz & shook his paw.

    Then I went over & looked at the Baby 12" drum sander & the 18" open ended drum sander. Both look like they wouldn't be to bad for home shop use.

    Then I got to thinking about what I could add to my arsenal of tools. I wandered around & drooled over this & that trying to decide what I might get away with of course waking up at 2:30 this morning & not going back to sleep didn't help one bit. But after wandering around & drooling a bit I ran across two little gems I couldn't leave with out & the Grizzly picked my pocket but he only got just about $49.

    A Kreg bench clamp & a live center for turning pens.

    I think I'll make a portable jig with adjustable top to clamp in my workmate at the same height as my bench to mount my Kreg clamp into along with a wonder pup system to clamp items for routing with a hand held router an idea I picked up out of a router magazine at the B&N book store. I just know if it is in the bench top I'll be using it & need the bench to use with the table-saw.

    If you've ever seen a cirgar store Indian shakin Griz's paw is something like shakin the cirgar store Indians hand. Look out for the splinters.
