Bart, I know where you're coming from. My Dad's not quite as old as your's, but, a couple years ago, he started handing out tools. I've got his RAS, Makita hand power planer, small welder, and some other small thinks. He gave some tools to guys up at the lake that he knew I didn't need and they could use. He kept a few things to putter around with. His eyes are getting pretty bad, and he is smart enough to know that poor eyesight and power tools don't always mix too well. But you are absolutely right that it is a hard event to work through. Jim.

At a minimum, I'm Pentatoxic...but most likely, I'm a Pentaholic. There seems to be no known cure. Pentatonix, winners of The Sing Off, season 3
