    1st Christmas Tool Gloat

    My wife gave me clamps for Christmas! Bessey K-Bodies to be specific.

    2 24in and 2 50in. She said that the guy in the tool section of Lowe's looked on with jealousy as she picked them up.

    Jealous that you were getting some great clamps or jealous that you had a wife that knew what kind of stuff to get you?
    Nice score on both counts.

    You guys suck!!

    I get nothing for Christmas, at least nothing that is real practical. Oh I get the standard cordless drill, but as everyone on here knows, I don't use them. (I am truly a hand tool kind of guy). So I take them back (3 this year) and buy something I can really use.

    I did get a utility knife that is pocket knife, and utility knife. That holds some promise, and some cheap screwdrivers and chisels. I can always use them I guess for carpentry type stuff.

    I just don't know why they say I am hard to shop for. Just go to Lee Valley, tools, lawn and garden, any of their catalogs and order anything. I'll be happy. Cordless drills, come on
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
