    Hello fossils.

    Just finished the last visitation of both sets of inlaws and my own folks/sister, future BIL all within nearly a single month. Holy fuck. They all went reasonably well, but I am looking toward no visitors for the foreseeable future and having most of my weekends back

    FBIL bought my General table saw to start his remodel on their kitchen, so now it is out of my way and I get to shop for...drill press or band saw. I think I will get more use from a drill press in general.

    Spoiler Alert: We won the war.

    Despite some negative reviews, that's one I'd like to rent for myself.
    Spoiler Alert: Sum of All Fears was a POS compared to the actual plot of the book. Fucking Ben Affleck. Clear & Present Danger was pretty good until they choked on the film's ending.

    I could be watching Jack Ryan at another set of in-laws, but I'm servicing the fleet and taking care of the yard instead. I may watch it later.

    Facing the first main push invasion wave from Iowa Tuesday, with minor follow up force from Texas on Saturday. Were I a believer, I'd be looking for that "Serenity Prayer."
    WTH, might give it a shot just in case. ;) :rolleyes:

    Everything. Stuff. You know, things.

    I often find myself wanting a press for various jobs for better precision and control. And depending on how I do my garage cabinets, I might have quite a few adjustable shelf pin holes to drill.

    I have a decent jigsaw now, so I feel that a band saw will need to wait until I get into designing something the jig can't handle. And it's not like I have any need to do resawing or tasks of that scale.

    Of course, I need to dive in and think about tool capacity versus garage space, and bench vs. floor models.
    Get yer Psalm 23 on, Chief, and keep the liquid courage at hand.

    This is normally the rule I live my wife / life (whatever) by.

    Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat from any tree in the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden; 3 but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.’ ” 4 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not die; 5 for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,a knowing good and evil.” 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.

    I smash my wife over the head with that everyday since she is such a sinner.

    In that case, I vote for the drill press. Nothing else really fills that tool's ability to produce repeatably perfect holes with ease.
    I like his wife, though.

    Checked forecast for tomorrow, lawn mowing can wait 'til then.

    Think I'll peruse the Highlander manuals until movie time. And maybe a little nap. :yawn: :)

    Sure.

    I think she's pretty in a "I can kick your ass" way, and she's been watchable in some projects, like Alias and some films. She's no Kate Beckinsale, but she's ok in my book, much like Carrie-Anne Moss.

    [​IMG]

    Too bad Moss didn't get the lead in Aeon Flux. The story still needed help, but she could've pulled it back from total failure.

    i purchased a band saw before a table saw. I get so much more use out of my table saw. if i had to get rid of one or the other, the band saw would go first.
