New Tool Gloat
Sep 18th, 2009 at 5:24pm
 
So I haven't been in the shop for a while now.  Between working far too much, a couple deaths in the family, and assorted other personal crap the motivation just hasn't been there.  My wife has been nudging me more and more to get back to it, mostly because she likes not having to shop for Xmas  Grin, and suggested I buy some new toys to give me a reason to jump back into it.  My new dovetail jig and some walnut arrived today, I'm buying a new compressor on Sat or Sun and the vacuum chuck & hollowing tools will be here next week.  She may be a redhead with matching temper but boy she knows how to spoil a guy!!

I'm sorry to hear you've had family bereavements but it's good to see you are able to get back to pleasurable activities.  When my wife behaves as well as your's just has I sometimes extend her probation period so that might be something worth thinking about.

Remember, no pics etc, etc,...

I went to HF to check out compressors this weekend.  Between it being the floor model, already on sale, and  had a coupon, the $199 compressor was $99 with the 2 yr replacement warranty thrown in for nuthin!  I got half the shop cleaned and rearranged on Sun before the games started.  A couple more shelves tonight for new tools and supplies and I'm hitting the lathe!

Congrats on the compressor, Todd. You're really gonna appreciate having it for things like blowing the chips out of hollow forms. Sounds like you're having a new tool bonanza lately.   smiley=thumbsup.gif

I tend to go on binges, be it tools or instruments or supplies.  It was either another tattoo or shop upgrades.  New toys definitely gets one back in the mood to play!

It's in the right place.  They're not turning related tools.

I can't totally agree with you there.  The duration of said fun is certainly longer but I love getting inked  smiley=beer.gif
