Just reflecting on how sweet all of these Goldens as a breed are...here's one of my favorite photos.  Here's our Jackson with one of his pups...does it get better than this?

$1 Cdn a piece...goo spreaders:



Not just regular glue spreaders for me. I thin out the stiff tongue of a couple of them, and use them to push glue into cracks, for example, in a repair job.

When I have a complex glue-up to do, I put several of them on the assembly table so I never need to worry where my spreader has gone in the middle of the job.

Makita Bluetooth radio. I have had a tiny cylinder style speaker for a while. It works, but it's not ideal. Really all it can do is play. Volume adjustment, pause, skip, etc had to be done on the phone itself. This Makita unit is far more comprehensive. It rolls the song title/artist on the screen as it plays, volume adjust onboard, etc and it can be much louder.

Re: What non-Festool tool did you buy today?...PB Swiss stubby screwdriver

One of the major annoyances I've had with the 1010 & 1400 routers is that the fasteners they use to attach various accessories are all different style drives.

The 1010 uses Torx, flat blade as well as Phillips head fasteners.

The 1400 uses Torx, Posi-Drive as well as Phillips fasteners. It's always a mess when I bring a router outside to use as I NEVER have the correct style drive. I'm hoping this will change the situation.  [big grin]

This PB Swiss stubby will just reside in the router Systainer with the router until it's needed. Sweet...it stores 6 different drives inside the handle and those can be changed out as needed.

Thanks to Ron @rvieceli for mentioning the recent PB Swiss internet sale.  [smile]

I feel your pain there. I bought a single T-15 driver to keep inside the Systainer of the first OF1010. It worked out great. Then when I got the newer version OF1010, I ordered one from Amazon, to keep in that one too. Seems a little silly because they are only a few inches apart in the rack, but inside the already opened unit seemed better than opening the other one to get it? It was just an add-on with some other stuff. I pulled it out to swap the ring in the base to discover that it was wrong. Somehow a driver with T-15 marking on the handle, is actually a T-20? I have never seen anything mismarked like that.

We've had Golden Retrievers for 30-odd years. We lost our last one, Rufus, a few years ago. He was 14.

This photo was taken when Rufus was 8 weeks old and my wife, son Jamie, and I went to meet him. Well, his mother wanted to meet us as well ...

I was at my local borg (Bunnings) today and came back with a 1/2" thick heavy smooth rubber mat 600 x 1200mm.



This will be great for my workbench when assembling furniture.

I had a German Shepherd a while back and his cat died (the cat was 24 years old when he passed).

The dog was in morning so I got him another kitten.  The first evening the 14 week old kitten was in the house he jumped up on the bed and slept with the dog in almost exactly that position. Your picture reminded me of them.

The 24 year old was a Maine Coon Cat and the kitten was a Norwegian Forest Cat.  (I got him two of the Forest cats; one was a a back up.)

@Cheese ; the Festool Toolie is supposed to have all the drivers needed to adjust Festools.

But putting some dedicated tool in the box is good too. The Toolie isn't the most comfortable formfactor.

They aren't the easiest thing to get ahold of around here either.
It's kind of what I call the "Swiss Army Knife" factor. It can do many things and none of them well.
In the US, that is the "Shop Smith". Somewhat the original multitool as far as big machinery.

Clicking through the woodpecker site they had a one time tool that was a steel straight edge. I have the 12 sse already but could use the 36” one sadly the last run of them was sold out but ona. Whim I traveled back through their old one time tools and discovered one time tools aren’t so one time. Back farther they had run these straight edges before and still have some 12” and 36” for sale. I emailed and yea they had them in stock so a 36” sse showed up in my door step! They are machines to .0002, yes .0002 over 12”. Plenty good enough for my set ups!

Optical center-punch. Dunno why it took me so long.







Actually, I do. Reluctant to admit I needed it.

I got the silliest little thing today, but it's so handy. Quite often, I use both the DF500 and Zeta at the same time, or the TS55 and DF500 together. Swapping the extractor hose back and forth is no big deal, they are at the tool-end. Changing the plug every time gets old real quick. And it never fails that the wrong one is plugged in.
While shopping for some wire management clips, I came across this, for a whopping $3.

You could always just plug a powerboard into the socket on the extractor? That's what I do to save time when using multiple tools off the one dusty, that way I only ever need to change the dust hose to what I'm using.

A replacement set of 3 x DMT diamond plates for my Kirschens. Expensive, but still the best and fastest way to get razor-sharp chisels IMO.

I keep one of these 3-way outlets plugged into all 3 CT's. Especially handy when I'm sanding.

Schaaf Chisels on sale at Amazon for $30 (normally $43) for a four chisel set.


I got one set to start.  The grinding is rough, but the backs are flat to slightly convex, so straightforward to flatten.  Once I found a technique for flattening that took a reasonable amount of time (see https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/hand-tools/i-just-got-better-at-flattening-chisels/msg676481/?topicseen#msg676481) and verified that the steel was reasonably good, I decided to buy another two sets at that price.


Schaaf carving tools have gotten suprisingly good reviews, and are also very reasonably priced.  I have a set of the carving tools and like them so far, so when these came on sale, I thought I'd give them a try.  They won't replace my Veritas PMV-11 chisels, but they will make good chisels for several teens in my life who enjoy woodworking.

Wanted the Daddy, CSP 165E, but could not resist the $600 price for this one. Needs some cosmetic TLC, but mechanically is in an excellent shape.

I'm in the 4-6 week tranche, pulled the trigger yesterday AM. I'd been planning to pass the buck to Santa but, you know...

Somehow the 16mm hogging bit mysteriously ended up in the cart at checkout.

So far, I have been successful at avoiding that bit. Don't know how much longer that will hold though.

Just picked up a WWII 20T rip blade (my 30 T WWII struggled a bit with stock over 2" thick) , Fastcap Uni-vac, and shim stock from Lee Valley, and some erasers (as glue bottle caps). Will report on the uni-vac after testing it.
