OK, I got "it" and the CT 22 vacuum, and the tennon assortment, and the
Domino accessories, and the bill.
My delightful and Lovely wife bought it for me.
I'll let Nailshooter fill in the details if he sees this post. ;~)
So Nailshooter, if you are reading this, Kim and I are going over to
Swingman's house to play cards tonight and I'll probably take it over with
me. I'll be looking for a new story of how you see this playing out,
Oh, and it was WAY affordable this week before the massive price increase.
Now, you've done it - acquired two major tools that come in color schemes
which clash. I don' t know how you'll live with that Laguna bandsaw and
Festool domino in the same shop.
We all could tell you would eventually cave in - too many rationalizations
going on. :-)
Well, I finally got to fondle "The Domino" for a few seconds ... while Leon
Man, that's one versatile piece of machinery!
We used it to slice the potatoes, cut the vegetables, open the wine, start
the fire (the little 1" oak "domino's" made excellent kindling and imparted
a robust, but not overpowering, flavor to the meat), and made three mission
style hall tables, with slats, while the burgers were cooking ... tonight
we'll see how it mixes margarita's.
Actually, it's an impressive little baby Multi-Router ... and when it grows
up and learns to move on its z axis, I predict that David J. Marks will
feature it in a new series.
The only con is that its gonna need a built-in Lojac so you can keep track
of it. :)
the rumble of the saw.
EVENTUALLY the mission was completed and we returned to the game. Swingman
obviously did not quite get the exact angles and depth of cut right as
compared to the other set of 4 Exquisitely crafted card holders. His cards
simply would not sit correctly in his newly built card holder and he
struggled through the rest of the hand trying not to reveal the frustration
that he must of felt. In another bolt to the door Swingman was back in the
shop to make a few simple modifications. The results were not pretty. The
card holder sat at such an angle that all the other players could see his
cards. IIRC he bolted to the shop again and came back with the holder.
This time however the card holder had a mortised slot in the back side and a
loose tennon was sticking out. It resembled a kick stand on a bicycle as it
held the card holder up in a crippled like fashion. We all tried not to
stare but we could not help it. Eventually the tennon was pulled out and
propped under the card holder.
I strongly suspect that had Swingman been brave enough to carry the Domino
out to the shop and cut the mortise he would have had much better results
with that kick stand modification.
Seventeen hours later the game ended and we went home with the unused Domino
Yeah that was funny, my wife insisted on paying and shued me away during the
negotiation stage. I recall her saying that the price on the cash register
was too much. They forgot to give her package pricing since I was buying
the vac also. That in itself was a $75 savings in addition to the sale
prices on the Domino and tennon assortment.
