    I got a dewalt tablesaw. The little 10" portable jobby for $300 on sale at homie desperate.

    With the shop project, I've actually been having christmas since july.

    The wife was smart with the tablesaw though, she wants new cabinets for the kitchen and now I have no excuse not to make them.

    Since I don't really care for woodworking anymore, I didn't want a bigger saw. This thing will cut all I need it to, and it's still small enough to park on a shelf when not in use. I saw someone make an adapter to mount it to a bench and that sold me on getting the little guy. I'll have the welding bench for supporting bigger work down the road.

    My wife used to buy me tools until I stressed to her I do not work well with wood. I cut two inches off and its still an inch too short.

    I do work well with metal though, a lot more forgiving than wood. Cut it too short, weld some back on - lol. I actually turned down a Mig welder for Christmas, it was either that or a down payment on a new bike. Getting a new Mig at work so I'll use that.

    Default Christmas

    1- 16 Oz. bottle of Yack farts.
    4- Bags of Whiskey breath.
    2- Short stacks of "shut the f&*% up".
    1- Yrd. of used dental floss.
    2- Crippled crotch crickets.
    1- Gross of 1/4"X3/4" used scabs.
    2- Gasoline powered turtle neck shirts.
    1- Fur sink.
    2- Football bats.
    And for the earthy anti-hunting bug lovers: 1- 22 Oz. Can of roach spray that doesn't kill the roach, but fills him with self doubt as to whether or not he's in the right house.

    But to make up for the above, my wife and I took flying lessons last year and for X-mas a new Cessna Turbo Stationair!!

    You will, you will!

    I agree I'm lucky. But hard work and being in the right places at the right time helps too. There's much more successful people here than me and others that may not be, but I think everyone here can reach their goals.

    Anyway, I'm chomping at the bit waiting for my plane! Bought it about 3 weeks ago and have about 2 more weeks of long hard waiting to take delivery from the Cessna factory!

    Happy New Year!!
