Default New toys (tools)

Took advantage of some of the sales/free shipping from a couple of the supply houses.

I got the woodworking vise, and the two bits (antique beading and triple bead molding) from Woodcraft. Then the precision Brass setup bars, disposable gloves (not shown) the table saw fingerboard, the digital snap gauge (metric, dicimal and fractions) and the crown molding fixture for miter saw at Rockler.

All for about 170 bucks. Just the bits would have been half of that, at regular price. The vise is stout and heavier then I expected for 40 bucks. Only disappointment is a clicked on the wrong antigue beading bit. I wanted the 1/2" shank, and got the 1/4" by mistake. The 1/2" was actually cheaper, for some reason. The cutter was identical. But I did get the 1/2" on the triple beading bit. Wich that's a good thing, with all of it's cutting surface. I have now bought multiple times from both Rockler and Woodcraft and they get 5 stars from me with products and shipping.

Yes, Lee, one can never have too many tools....

I get the emails all the time, but free shipping does not apply.......[crying]

Lee,

One thing to consider:
When making liners for the vise, drill holes in the back of the liners and bond in magnets so you can make specialty jaws that just pop on and off when you need them. Just make sure the magnets are all turned the same direction. You can have a set of leather padded jaws, a set of cloth covered jaws, a set of jaws for holding different diamiter round stock, a set of jaws for ...... what ever special need.
