« Part 25: I'm BACK!! Another Fall, Winter & Spring of Woodworking in OKC Part 26 of Building the Shop series Part 27: Updated Shop Pictures »

Sunday night I found the Jet 16-32 brand new in the original box, never opened for $700. I really didn’t need it right now, but in the future I was going to purchase one for some upcoming projects. So I did what most of you probably would do if your interested in something you want, I went up to my wife and told how much I loved her and gave her a big hug and a kiss. Right then she knew, “what do you want”??? lol So I told her the situation, call the guy up to see if they still had it, offered $600 b/c I really didn’t need it right now, the guy said he was strong at $700, so I said alright and hung up.

An hour later after thinking about it, finding ways to make a little extra cash so I could justify buying it, I called back and said I’ll take it for $700!!!!! lol When would I get another chance to save $400+ on this tool (BRAND NEW), couldn’t pass it up!!!

Here’s some picture from assembling it today. After putting the legs together I ran up to Woodcraft to pick up some 2.5” casters, so I can move it around my small shop. Man, those things are $$$$$$$ WoW!! I’m waiting next to for Amazon.

Very cool find, and heres a married guy trick. Use a white board pen or similar and write I love you on the bathroom mirror so she finds it when she gets up. Major points, but your going to owe her big time. One last thing, that garage is WAY to clean.

Your next project, and you should get on it NOW, should be a nice BIG cutting board for your bride…

“But honey, I needed this big expensive tool to finish up making that beautiful cutting board you love so much…”

Just kidding. If your wife is supportive, and you aren’t dipping into other family funds, she’ll be glad you got something to keep you out of the bars and away from chasing skirts…

Lance, you made a good decision, the pain of the cash outlay lasts only a short time, while the pleasure of owning this tool and the results it delivers will bring you pleasure for years to come.

I know what you mean about the casters for this being expensive!
