OK, this gloat is not about the fair deal on the new Yorkcraft YC-8J
8"x72" Jointer I got, nor is it the good deal, imagine that, I got on
my new Delta 22-580 from Woodcraft.
My gloat is about my wife who told me to go and buy these new tools!
The wallet is a bit lighter and getting even lighter as I extend some
circuits, add some DC piping and so forth. Now to hold up my end of the
deal and finish my current project and get started on a few more. Ah -
Thanks wifey. XXOO
For me it was - look at hjis board for your new sofa table - see this flaw?
Thats cuz my little bitty baby benchtop jointer is a POS and really too
short to use on such a long board. See that line? Its cause the darn blades
nick soo easily in this expensive lacewood you picked out for your table
inlay. See this taper in this scrap? Thats because I was trying to use this
jointer to thickness a piece and, well, something was out of whack and thats
what happens. So, really I need a new jointer AND a planer.
She says - OK, ok as long as you build me... ... ... bla bla bla was all I
heard after OK.
Must mean you're doing good work. Years ago significant tool procurements
caused a lot of rich dialogue in our house. After years of furniture
pieces, home projects, basements, grandkid gifts, etc. she is very
supportive. We recently donated a hardwood rocking horse to our church and
I think she was more proud of it than I.
Gotta go now. Working on her curio cabinet.
