A few weeks ago, I posted a topic concerning a doweling jig. Well, low and behold my LJ buddy, GR8Hunter sent me a message that he saw one on Craigslist. He wanted to know if I wanted him to pick it up for me and of course, I replied affirmative. In addition, he asked for my address so that he could ship it to me. I replied to him to let me know the cost of said tool and shipping. About 2-3 weeks later, I received a package from the post office. Lo and behold, there was the doweling jig. Again, I asked him about the cost of tool and shipping. He replied to me that it was a “gift”. I was absolutely astonished, that again I was receiving a gift from a LJ buddy. I will be forever grateful to him and John Smith for giving something of themselves to someone in need. We undeniably need more people in this world like them. Thank you both for your gifting and how much it means to me.

What type of Dowel jig was it??
I recently purchased a dowel max and it great.
Just a little time consuming though for bigger projects.
