While shopping for other peoples presets, I ran across a couple of items
that I thought Santa could give me and save my wife the trouble of having to
shop for me. Aren't I a good husband??
Anyway, wanted to know if these qualified as gloats...
Been looking at Biscuit Joiners for a while, but never jumped in. A while
back the general opinion here was that the PC 557 was a good choice along
with the shim that was being made by a guy here on the rec. I just hated to
part with the $199 it was going to cost me. Well this past weekend HD had
20% off all power tools, plus I had a $50 gift card that I had been given a
couple month back for my Birthday. So I finally jumped on the PC 557. All
totaled, I was out about $120 after tax.
Then I wandered in to Lowes and passed the clearance rack. There was a B&D
18V 5 tool combo sitting there. Circ Saw, Recip Saw, Drill, Light,
Radio/Charger and "AA" powered screwdriver. Normally $149, marked down to
$75. Snagged that as well.
Now all I need to do is find someone to give me a good deal on a few more
hours per day so I can spend a little more time in the shop!!!
