There was a nice casting kit for a pillar tool for sale at Cabin Fever, but I don't know which one it was. It wanted to follow me home.

It only wanted to follow you home  :naughty:

You need to try some feminine charm on these casting sets  ;) Ok I see you might have a slight problem with that  :shrug:.

Unfair. Unfair advantage.
You've got the charm and obviously not afraid to use it.
We are left with bribery and begging.  :'(
Although I've found a bit of willingness to dance helpful...but that's just another form of bribery and begging.

Hey Mosey, the Martin folks will be most happy to make one appear at your home I bet. It is a nice looking tool.  Sorry I missd you at the show.

I managed to put all of my purchases except 1 in my top pocket, so she didn't see much until we got home. The big brass bar was a steal, so it didn't raise any hackles either. 20lbs of casting might just have caught her eye, don't you think?
I did meet may of the social outcasts though, Cheapo, the King of Bling (Stan), and others, but I missed quite a few others.
My charm is legendary, and I don't have to wear a skirt, like some we know.
There will be a follow-up to my test of my new HSS inserts shortly, in which we will see why the experts are always touting that over carbide, and why we should just shut up and listen to them.
A memorable expo.

You must have hit the Warner folks too...as did I, but knew going in I wanted a #1 kit (1/4" shanks) for the Sherline. Will look forward to hearing how you like the HSS inserts.

I never allowed them to make eye contact, less I end up like Stan, who had to pay commercial rates on the Turnpike coming home. But, I know where they are.
Sorry I missed you.

I would have definitely noticed 20lbs of castings taking residence in the house. ;D

Strangely enough I don't wear a skirt either to these do's, I have been known to drop in on a local trader with my skirt suit on and that clearly has had a lasting impact. But he is a married man so I am perfectly safe there  ;)

Yes safe: because I have moral standards . But sometimes it is nice to know every now and then that someone might still think that way towards you as you get older :naughty:

As for the single ones :stickpoke: :shrug:
