Well another year has come and gone. To all who is wondering I am 21 again! Well let me first start off by saying my birthday was June 17th. I know a few days late. But it was a great birthday. I would like to share it with all of you. Why because its going to make your mouth water all over. I know it did mine. Well let me start of by showing you all what my oldest son and wife got me. Its a Ridgid sander.

I have been playing on it for a few days now and I will show you all what I have been doing in another blog.
Well just when I thought it couldn’t get any better another gift from my wife. A Powermatic Mortise machine. WOW!!!!! I have wanted one of these for along time.

Well I also got a small Air conditioner for my shop because it gets so hot out there. No pictures of that.
I thought the day went very well. But my wife said she had one more thing for me. Okay what is it? She said I could get a drum sander if I would like to. Well you know what my answer is to that. So off to the store I went. And check this baby out. A Jet 22-44 drum sander. Nice!!!!!!!!

I have been doing a little playing around with it this weekend. I had to set it all up, fix the tracking and adjust the drum. But as time goes on I might do a review on this and all of the new toys.
Well, I would like to thank my wife for all the new toys and for a great birthday.

I could talk about them more but I want to go play with them See Ya All !!!!!!!! Dave

My birthday is also June 17, born in 1955 are you sure one of those isn’t mine and she gave it to you by mistake. Double check the cards for my name, you know measure twice cut once. Nice gifts when you are done playing share some more with us.

Your wife must have wanted to get you out of her hair! You’ll probably never come in from the shop now!

And I thought I was blessed when my husband gave me two 36” bar clamps for my 50th! I’d like to join your family!

I’m looking forward to your tool review on the drum sander.

You notice how all of these gifts work toward finishing a project?
I don’t know, but your wife might be saying:: “If he gets this stuff maybe he will finally finish a project.”
Maybe it wishful thinking on my part.
Nice birthday presents.


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Have your say...
