    Happy Father's Day to me! Toyl haul.

    The LOML and I went on a getaway this weekend, and we stopped at the Reading Outlet Maul on Saturday, where they had a Black and Decker Outlet. I broke my favorite B&D 18V drill awhile back, it still turns, only in reverse (the selector switch is shot). It didn't owe me much, but the LOML picked it up a few years back for me. The batteries still hold a good charge, so I decided to stop in and see about a replacement 18V to go with my Ryobi kit, after all one can never have too many drills, right?
    So this went in the truck:



    refurb unit with charger and two batteries. Yep there are three batteries in the photo, had to make sure my old ones fit. Nice thing, they upgraded from the slippery plastic to a serious knurled aluminum chuck.

    Today we stopped at the Allentown Woodcraft for their Father's day 15% off bag sale. Anything you can fit in a shopping bag, excluding power tools, festool, etc...

    I dropped a bit more than I thought when the LOML encouraged me to get the K3 kit vs the Kreg rocket and a separate clamp. SO I went over my 'budget' a bit. (Budget, HA!)



    I picked up a pen Mandrel and some CA Glue, plus some solvent for the same. A package of exotic pen blanks and a couple of sets of bushings for what I expect I'll be turning, cigar pens and euro-style.




    and last but not least I threw in an Incra 6" Rule.

    Nice!

    I got a couple of cards (this is especially nice...kids started doing this on their own), my daughter baked me a chocolate chip cake (my favorite), and got to go buy doors for the basement ($550 worth). All in all it was an awesome day.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one destressing my family by doing the shopping myself

    Nice haul Ned!

    Normally the kids and Lori find something for me, this time she was with me for the two shoppipng episodes, and in fact it's her fault i have the K3, I was going for a rocket and a separate clamp, she suggested the K3 to 'save money'.

    ($79 vs $39 + $25. plus I get the basic module instead of the narrower version. before the sale of course)

    I also got a load of new 'work' clothes khakis and so on, which I have to wear while I'm on the road.

    Ummmmm yup, you missed it. mostly cause it went to my storage unit back in March, and then up to Grizzz's shop the next day.

    I got it when I picked up the bandsaw, got both of them for not much more than either of them cost new.

    John Shaffner, my mentor had the rocket kit, and I built this using it:
    I've already got a load of appropriate screws etc. from our local fastener supply house. I expect that I'll be using it a LOT when I get around to working on the kitchen cabinets I have on the agenda 'someday'

    will do,
    I'm planning on setting up the spinny thing early on in the shop population, but strictly limiting my time on it, since I have other projects ahead of turning... like wiring, rebuilding my bench, lumber racks, things like that.
