What'd you buy today?

Had a thread like this on one of my motorcycle forums that I frequented a lot. It was a good way to show off your craigslist finds, new products, tools, etc. I saw a lot of things I'd never seen before and it actually made me buy them. So, that may or may not be a good thing depending on how tight the pocketbook strings are.

Can be tools, wood, books, magazines, etc. Anything that is somehow related to woodworking (even loosely).

I bought an Incra Precision 6" T-rule and a t-track hold down clamp (just one. Gotta build up a collection slowly, just like clamps) from Rockler. Both on sale at my local Rockler for nearly half off each.

I bought a new motorcycle helmet, a Nexx. Not here yet. I also bought some 1/2" red oak A2 plain sliced plywood but cut it up already.

Finally broke down and bought a good 8" grinder. Thinking of mounting it on a movable cabinet. I had a couple of 6" one a Delta which is good, and the yellow one is a cheapo type which is ok, but the new one is going to do what I want.

Nothing today, but yesterday I bought a new 15 amp Triton router and all sorts of parts to build a router table (t-track, miter track, power switch, misc accessories) and an undermount woodworking vice. Tomorrow, on the way home from work, I will be buying unfinished flooring to use as a new work table surface

I didn't get the chance to try on the Nexx helmets at the motorcycle show last month. I've heard good things from a friend of mine. I wanted to like the Bell Star, because you can get some really good deals now, but it doesn't fit my head right. Guess I'll stick with Scorpion/Arai.

I'm curious what the 8" will do that the 6" won't. I don't know much about grinders other than I need one.

"I'm curious what the 8" will do that the 6" won't. I don't know much about grinders other than I need one."

The Delta 8" machine is variable speed, and came with the smooth (white) wheel which is great for sharpening tools. It is very powerful. I am going to remove the rough gray wheel, and install the wire brush, which is a very handy item on my bench.

I ordered a Jet Vortex cone retrofit kit for my Delta 50-850A dust collector (going to compare it with the Thein Baffle I have in it now) and a set of these mag wheel casters with low profile tires for my new tool cart.

Got a package in the mail today from Certainly wood. Figured since I can't do any actual woodworking in my apartment, I'd give veneering/marquetry a try. I think I got enough to keep me busy for a while...

Well,
yesterday I bought a cylinder hone for doing my motorcycle rebuilds. Today my shipment of hand rolled cigars arrived from Las Vegas. Also bought a meatball sub for lunch from a good Italian import store.

A fun trip to a big-box yesterday. A small set of brad-point drill bits and a couple of router bits I'm going to try in my drill press, concrete wall anchors and some ply so I can start hyper-organizing my shop, small pieces of floor and trim molding to fix a couple spots before we repaint the trim, primer and six paint samples for decorating the guest room furniture, and some oak edge banding,

One of my boxes was waiting for me when I got home yesterday. My Triton router (new tools, baby!!) along with a woodworking bench vise from Woodcraft. I bought the wood for my workbench surface the day before (3/4 x 3.5" unfinished, square edge clear red oak flooring from Lumber Liquidators for $2.69/ft). So last night, I finished the new table top, and mounted the vice.

According to the UPS web site, I should have another box waiting when I get home tonight, with all my t-track and router table parts. The t-track is for the work bench. Then I start building the router table.

Just got a call from Jet stating the website mistakenly allowed me to order the Vortex Cone as it is only available for warranty repair...
