what did you get yourself for x-mass?


Recommended Posts

I picked up a new Fein Multi-master. Quick change blades and a much better case than my original one. Probably keep a blade on one and the sanding head on the old one.

 

Hmm...I've been wanting one of these for a while now.  Hopefully the build quality hasn't slipped on this classic.

A bottle of Bombay and a 1.5# thick cut ribeye for tomorrow night .     Happy Holidays everyone!

Bought a new house with a dedicated over-sized two stall garage for my shop!

You know, a good way to save money on Bombay around the holidays is to take a gallon of rubbing alcohol and just throw a few pine boughs from the Christmas tree in it for a week or so.  Same result.

Spent my Christmas bonus (or what Uncle Sam left me) on a Kapex, can't argue with spending found money. Hated the first one I bought long ago that was a real dud and returned it, but I decided to give it another go after other saws I looked into weren't fulfilling all my checkmarks and I talked about my issues with a Festool rep. Glad I did, this new saw versus the old one is like night and day, guess the other was a real lemon. Happy to have it but not just because of the Kapex, but because it is the final major shop purchase.

I got to abuse the demo model before I bought it! Seems to have a bit more power than my old one and a much easier blade change plus a much better case. The case and accessories alone total up to about half of the cost. Build quality seems to be similar to all the Fein products I have had good luck,with.

The better course of action might be to figure out why you keep breaking them. ;)

easy enough hedge clippers, band saw, short in the cord, washing machine ect.....bought some cheap wireless ones and the battery would not stay charged for more then a hour.  finaly bought some expensive ones for the 24 hour battery time.  that pair of wireless ones year after i got them the plug that went into my ipod wore out and stopped sending signals.  wrote the company got a new plug week later ipod would not suport those wireless headphones. said they were not recognized hardware  most sets just get a short in the cord and stop sending music.  so i bought a case of cheap ones use till i break them and throw away.  

 

then again i use mine all day every day.  while at work in the shop, yard work, cooking, cleaning .......

The sound is exceptional and the noise reduction is total.  I had a pair of Bose that were in the same price point and I like these better.  Better sound, much better noise reduction.  I wore out the Bose from all the sweat from outside work.  The foam just disintegrated.

a spindle sander and a nice load of lumber from the mill.  I picked up a 6/4 x 14" wide x 8' long cherry board @ $3bd ft.   Not sure what I am going to do with it.  I also picked up some 8/4 catalpa for some decorative wine racks I am making as gifts.  Yeah christmas is over but there are a few people we won't see till january so i will have time to build stuff for them.

Good news.  I've been looking at the different buy options on Amazon...lots of accessories!  

I like the Fein products too, thanks.
