    Default What tools did you get for xmas

    Did you get any surprise tools for Xmas? Or did you buy them and sneak them under the tree?

    Someone trying to tell you something, Allan? :o)

    No tools here that I know of, though we haven't opened our gifts yet. I tell people not to get me anything that the business can buy & take a deduction on - bah humbug, I know.

    Merry Christmas Kreg, Allan, & all.

    Actually Greg this is what I asked Santa to bring me. As you get older you'll find that hair grows from some strange places. By the way, this set is mechanically operated, no batteries required. Maybe I'll do a You Tube video :)

    Merry Christmas to you and everyone and especially my good friend Lav, I hope he is enjoying a great Christmas with his son.

    Allen,

    Is that the stainless steel nose hair clipper from Duluth?? I bought myself one a few weeks ago, and liked it so much I got my dad one for Christmas!

    And Kreg...it's CHRISTmas! Don't X Christ out of his birthday!!

    When is Festool coming out with all in one nose hair trimmer/domino cutter?......I bought myself a small General dovetail jig, 20% off at Hartville Hardware. By the way, if you ever get up to NE Ohio it is worth the time to trek on over to Hartville Hardware. It is one of the largest independent hardware stores in the country. They are in the middle of building a new store to open in 2012, it is going to be awesome!.......Merry Christmas!

    The only tool I got was a bronze bottle opener. It mates well with the two boxes of Dogfish though. I was hoping for a time machine so I could go back and put some hurt on a Greek fella for introducing that blasted chi symbol, oh how it so demeans a season of stuff.

    Have you been to Keim Lumber down in Charm OH? We are in OH now for Christmas with the in-laws and going there is always one of the highlights of coming up here.It is an incredible place!!If Hartville Tool is bigger and better I will need to come on up sometime.I was there probably 10-12 years ago and don't remember too much about it

    Well, if you consider that back in Christ's day Greek was the official language and transliterated it is Christos = Χριστός
    So, even though it's a short cut now, it does have Biblical roots...
