I got my birthday present last night and wow!! What a surprise. My wife
had called a couple of my coworkers that are also into woodworking (and
constantly hear about "what I want") and went to Woodcraft and picked me up
a new JET DC-1100ck (the canister style 1-1/2 hp dust collector). WAHOO!!
The coolest part (aside from putting it together last night and sucking up
some serious dust) was her story about the guys in line behind her. "Excuse
me, is that for you?" "No, it's for my husband's birthday" "Whoa! How'd he
get so lucky as to have a wife who'd buy that for him?! Will you call my
wife and let her know what kind of gifts to buy me? Hey Frank, come check
Pretty cool, huh!
Same DC I bought last month, very cool, enjoy! The nice thing about the
big deal all the guys made at Woodcraft is now she really understands
what a neat thing it is that she did so maybe she'll do the same again
at the next gift-giving opportunity. Think you could talk her into
writing a letter about her method of getting gift ideas and sending it
to some mags like Good Housekeeping, or Martha Stewart (sp?) so my wife
might read it and get the idea???

Bet your wife was walking on clouds after getting all the compliments - and
well she should too!
We will be expecting a full report on that "Sucker". I'm looking to do the
conversion number on my Penn State DC to the Jet canister.
Now when it's her birthday, you really need to do some research to see what
she REALLY wants. You wouldn't want to be the one who breaks the cycle of
great gift giving. Your shop could look like Nahm's before its all over!

Yeah...there's the rub. I know EXACTLY what she wants and it involves 3
diamonds and a band of gold -- it's our 10 year anniversary this year.
Ouch. But as you can tell she's definitely worth it, so yeah, she'll get
I have been working at HD for a few months now as a cashier and on the night
before Valentines Day, I had 3 different good looking women ring out with
power tools for their husbands for V-Day. One was getting a Makita 7.25
circular saw, a Makita finish sander and a Bosch jigsaw.
I got chocolate from my wife. I'm still trying to figure out who's dog I
ran over in a past life.
