What wood working related item did you get for Christmas?

Recommended Posts

I got a 50” Bessey parallel clamp. Glad I didn’t get around to building a clamp rack before Christmas. Round 3 is tomorrow, after that I may need to go buy a 2nd clamp so I have a pair.

I had a 20% off coupon for Rockler that was good till Dec 24 so I did buy this alignment guage.

Otherwise not much.  I only bought this now because the coupon was expiring.  I'm hoping that the dial indicator it comes with is better than the crappy cheap one I bought before.

I picked up the veritas sharpening Mk 2 system. Trying to improve my sharpening consistency, quality, and speed. First impression, I really like the Cam system that lets you switch to adding a micro bevel quickly. once I get all my blades switched over to these angles, it should be really nice working with it.

Get in the habit of checking the cam position frequently.  It's a bummer to finish putting on the main bevel then realize that the cam was in the micro position the whole time.  :o

If I had a dollar for every time I forgot to check that...

Thanks! I've been lurking for a bit, but really got into woodworking this past year. Still lots to learn, but loving it.

I got wood-mounted milling cutters from my wife, and these are mainly drawings from my children and books. My wife’s mother made the best Christmas present, she didn’t come. Best Christmas ever.
