    A family event with a new tool at the end of it

    So i get a email the other day reminding me there is a drill press for sale on the forum. That was good ole Jay looking out for me like a guardian angle. Paul's widow is still selling Paul's behemoth of a Grizzly Drill press. I had totally forgotten about that and besides the logistics of getting to my place would kill any benefit. Well then I remembered the Ambassador had said something about stopping by Jay on the return trip so i PMed him and sure enough he said buy it and we will make a plan to get it to his place.
    So i put in a bid which Jay kindly presented and Melissa agreed to and so i now am proud to say i am the new owner of a Grizzly 20" 1,5HP 4&3/4 stroke floor mount drill press. Its more than i was bargaining for in the next step of replacing my benchtop but for the price and the size its a wonderful solution. Comes with a trip to Michigan to visit my buddy to pick it up and he has offered temp storage till i get to do so.

    So hows this for a totally family affair . Thats what you call family having your back. A big big THANK YOU to Jay , Larry and Melissa you guys made my day making this a possibility. ............Ok Larry you got to come home now i want to pick up my drill press and feel a trip to Mi coming on.

    Had me thinking of the incredible Beetles song....just what would we do without friends....

    Now THAT is a drill press. I don't think you're ever gonna be wishing you had something bigger. Well done everyone for making the sale happen.

    Good stuff. Glad to hear it's going to a good home and it will sure be a heck of an upgrade!

    In the immortal words of Butch Cassidy (at least in the movie) "Well, that ought to do it." Great score Rob and a trip to pick it up to boot.
