    What Do you Want from Santa

    Just curious what you guys/gals are asking for Christmas (Holiday Gift Giving Event, or what ever you want to call it) to support you woodworking. Me, I'd be happy with a nice air compressor or combo sander or spindle sander. Although some alone time in the shop would be nice too.

    Porter Cable 4212 dovetail jig and a Porter Cable 690 router. I already have one 690, plan on setting up the bits right one time, and using them for that purpose only.

    I think I can see it under the bed if I look just right

    More time with my wife and my table saw.



    Preferably in that order.

    About 29 sheets of 1/2" OSB. That might even keep me busy and out of trouble for a while. Jim.

    I'd really like to have the X-31 back up and running by Christmas. That's about all I could ask for.

    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    I kind of go along with you Jim. I would like a spindle sander. I know that it is not heavy duty but I am looking at the Ridgid combo thing. Probably a seperate heavier spindle sander would be a better choice but I do not want to get greedy. I hope that there really is a Santa.

    My wifey promised me a good roll around tool box once I got a shop. I am hoping she follows through on that. I am desperate need for one for my mechanical tools!

    I have a long long wish list at Lee Valley. I also have a much shorter list at Rockler. I expect to get some of the things on the Lee Valley list and perhaps I will get something from the Rockler list.

    I would like to see all the families in this country have a good meal at Christmas. The homeless have a warm bed and a roof over their heads. Jobs for Americans, that will work, to support their families. And most of all That we as a human race would get along.
