...and I can't open it until Christmas. :-(
This year, when questioned about what I wanted for Christmas, I fumbled around
and realized that I already had every machine in my shop that I needed. What
that meant was that I could request something on the extravagant side.
I came to the conclusion that I really liked my little 4x36 bench sander. It
is, however, a little small for some of the things that I have been doing
lately. Hmmm, why not get it a big brother?
How about a Grizzly (G1140) edge sander?
Oh yeah, a big sander. Just the ticket for a Merry Christmas.
The truck driver very graciously backed his truck as far up the driveway as he
could. He could not quite get to the flat part at the top because of some ice,
but a lot better than way down at the bottom of the hill. The two of us
wrestled the box with its pallet onto the lift gate. He really had a lift gate.
Down it came and onto my hand truck. Have you ever tried to move 250 lbs. of
machinery up a short, steep incline with a hand truck with a flat tire? Oh
well, just another experience in and around the shop.
Well, it is sitting in the garage, waiting for its trip into the shop.
"But, I am not allowed to unpack it until the 25th.", he whined. :-(
Fortunately, the box is in real good shape.
I wonder if Santa will wrap it for me. :-)
