Fathers Day Rocked

Well, for Fathers day my lovely wife told me that I should go & get the router that I wanted, as she knew that their was one that I wanted. So I went & got the Bosch 1617. My wife then asked me how much it was & I told her $230 w/ tax. She then told me that I had not spent enough. After I got back from the Dr. due to the damage that I received from my jaw hitting the ground, I ordered the MLCS 45 peace bit set.

I Love my family!

Oh man, am I envious. I made a special point of showing my wife the router that I wanted and I even saw her on line looking at the one I wanted, but NO ROUTER. Whatís up with that? I must have said something wrong. Oh well, maybe next time.

Congrats on your new router!

A router must be the father's day gift for 2009. My wife bought me the DeWalt DW625! She is a keeper.

Best thing I got for Fathers day, was the card my daughter "fabricated" for me. I'm a Cowboy's fan, If you can't tell, I like to live the "High Life".

Many years ago, I lived in a small Ohio town. (pop. 16,000) I wanted a router. So I had the Sears Catalog store call my wife offering a good deal on a router. They said that I had spent quite a bit of time looking at the one on display. It didn't work either.

Use the right tool for the job.

Well, it sounds like a few of us were really lucky. BTW, as happy as I am about the Router, I have to say it is the hand drawn & hand made gifts from the kids that are really cool.

Even though, I am not a Cowboys fan. I do like your pic that your daughter put together. That is pretty cool.

I'm pretty hard to buy for so my family usually gives me gift cards from Home Depot/Sears etc. I didn't really need any more tools but can always use more storage so this year I used them to get another toolbox exactly like the one I got for my birthday last year (it was on sale for 1/2 price again at Sears plus an additional 10% off on fathers days only so it went from $1399.00 down to $629.00!)

I got the Bosch Digital Miter finder. Great tool for cutting large crown on the flat. Very simple to use.

Good Luck with your new router and MLCS 45 piece bit set. Years ago I ordered the MLCS 66 piece Router Bit Set (1/2" shank) and it's given me years of pleasure that's for sure. Never had any problems and still going strong. Also, Everyone have a Happy Fathers Day!!! ENJOY!!!! John
