Just ordered a Milwaukee 18v cordless jigsaw from CPO, along with a WS knife sharpener. Building my Milwaukee cordless system. Merry Xmas to me.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I got a few new router bits. I decided to try these Yonico bits since they looked good for the price. I got a set of straight bits ranging from 1/4 to 3/4 with 1/2” shanks. Got a set of plywood bits also with 1/2” shanks. Then I got the same set of straight bits again in 1/4” shanks for use in my DWP611 (these aren’t Yonico though). Finally I got a set of MLCS cove bits.

First impressions without having used any of them are that they are razor sharp! But I’m not impressed with the storage boxes at all. The way the bits mount they are in a plastic sleeve set into a wooden block inside the box. The wood block doesn’t rotate upwards to make removing the bits easier. The bits are in the sleeves so tight I don’t know if I can get them out without slicing my fingers to ribbons. So the answer is going to be a chisel. I’ll remove the bits and the wood block as carefully as I can and split the block off of them, saving the wood box for my grand daughter to play with. It’s high time I make a router bit storage system anyway, I have boxes and sleeves on top of boxes and sleeves rolling around inside a drawer on my work bench. It’s starting to make it a chore to look for bits when I need one.

Otherwise, I’m happy with these bits and I look forward to using them soon. The Yonico bits look and “feel” like they’ll be pretty decent quality.

Yonicos are "OK". They seem to dull a little faster. Nothing special, but they get the job done and are expendable when, I mean if, you screw up. You did all right.

My kids bought me a Makita ROS . Then I played Santa and picked up Ryobi Airstrike 18ga along with some extra batteries during the HD Black friday sale, and also snagged a Wen 4 3/8" electric hand planner for a project that involves resurfacing a maple bar top . Happy New Years to all with the best wishes for Health and Happiness in 2019!
