I didn't want to push my wife at all, shes been through a lot of medical stuff this past 3 weeks ending in surgery on Friday.
the 15% off Jet products ends today or tomorrow, and I had mentioned the tool I wanted was 15% off, but it was a big price tag.
She logged onto her amazon account, and said happy fathers day, and my kids will come over(mainly my son) on fathers day and help assemble it, that's all the fathers day gift I need.(some people have barn raisings, Ill have a lathe raising, complete with ribeye steaks and all the trimmings. should be a nice day)
I got the jet1642 evs lathe, not sure where its going to fit, and how soon I will be able to have some time to play with it, but saving 350 and free shipping, what the heck.
Its scheduled to be here in around 10 days. Not sure how Ill get it from the street to my garage, hopefully a dolly will handle it or Ill give the driver 20 bucks to get it into the garage.
(Im sure my bil and maybe Ill get my nephew here to help my son lift the heavy parts)
guess Im going to have to learn how to sharpen gouges now.
