I was out in my shop today working on some hand cut jig saw puzzle's when my Mother in Law show's up and tells me she has something in the back of her car I need to lift out. So off I trot doing my wife's family's bidding when low and behold my eye's fix on a yellow/gold box marked DW734. I am agas this woman barely gives me the time of day now she buys me a tool I was about to put on layaway. Even better I was going to put the less expensive Delta on layaway. What a great day I am having.
Congrats on the gloat. What are you going to build for her? <g>
(Before SWMBO and I were married 21+ years ago, my future MIL was amazed I
completely disassembled a non-working dishwasher, fixed the problem, and
left her with a working dishwasher.)
my first reaction is to warn you not to take it out of the trunk because
it is a trap. There is some dreadful conditions attached to the
acceptance of this planer. And the worst part of it is your wife is in
Keep us posted on what develops from this.

As it turns out my wife had no idea this was going to happen. My Father in law who is in real bad health comes by and sits in my shop with me and piddles with a bit of sanding or whatever to get out of the house. He noticed my "wish list" I have posted on a cabinet door. Now that the planer can be scratched off I guess that cabinet saw takes the top spot.
The funny thing is I never even thought about other people seeing the list. It's just up there to remind myself why I work 65 hours a week for someone else.

Do you think it would be subtle enough if you cut out a large
picture, complete with model number, etc., and pasted it along side of
every item on your list. LMAO Personally, I might think about changine
the list, and put whatever I thought the old man would like to play with
most, on top. Nah, I'd think about it, but I wouldn't do it; I'd just
be very thankful for what I'd already got, and wouldn't push it.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.
