  • It All Started With Black Friday.......

    Then came Pre-Black Friday. Now we have Cyber Monday too! Enough already! None of these idiotic titles do a single thing more to entice me to buy something than a good ole ON SALE did in the past.

    I agree. I'm a educated consumer year round and know when and where to get the best price. Maybe there are some great deals out there on those days, but it's not worth the long lines and risk of being around folks who act like animals.

      I had started a whole thread with some stocking stuffer ideas but i had so many windows open i lost track and closed it before i got the thread posted. Oh well.

      But I will post the single most important item from that list here.

      Its the SafeStart Systems SafetyGate Professional available from Woodcraft (and probably elsewhere). At Woodcraft its on sale right now for $19.99

      So what does it do you ask? It prevents your power tool from restarting following a power outage or loss of power to the tool other than a normal shutdown. so if a thunderstorm knocks out power while you're running your router or table saw when the power comes back on the tool will not start up on its own. you have to turn the tools power switch off then back to on to get it to reset. I asked the wife for a couple of them, one I will dedicate to the table saw and the other to move around to other tools as needed. Its certainly cheaper than a trip to the ER!!
      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

        Isn't that the truth. One pee brained woman here tried to jump the line at a Toys-R-Us where a few hundred people were waiting for the store to open. When some of the folks at the front of the line objected to her cutting in line she said she was going to go get a gun and start shooting. The Police took her for a little ride downtown and her Christmas present money was used not for buying presents for her kids but for bail money.
