Usually we like minded shop and modeling types use “the season” to acquire some new goodies for the ol’ shid. Let’s see what was in y’alls stocking. Here’s mine:

Nothing that big here, you must have really big stockings! Did get a couple of new sets of carbide carving burs for the sculpture work, also a co-ax dial indicator for the mill.   :)

I normally get a couple more sets of castings  ::)

But this year all I found on the dining room table was some shredded wrapping paper. I am sure that earlier in the morning I had heard something in the dining room and I thought it might be Santa so thought better of going to check but later Surus refused to come out of the casting cupboard as he was busy ... so I am beginning to wonder if he got to the castings before me :noidea:

He may have been digging a new passageway from your casting cupboard to his casting warehouse...

Hello Everyone,

I was a good boy this year and Santa rewarded me with a new Jet wood lathe w/ stand, Rikon 8" low speed grinder, a complete Oneway Wolverine Tool sharpening system and 8 new tools. I will be able to turn some Beams, Columns and Post that will go on several of my next Steam Engine projects.

Have a great day,
Thomas

He tells me he needs some drawings sorting out for a Wall C-601 and a C-602 but he is being a bit cagy about why, so I remain hopeful :noidea: Maybe I should mention to him it is Thursday today  ;)

Well, not quite nothing. Was given a t-shirt with

'NEVER UNDERESTIMATE AN OLD MAN WITH A SUBARU'

printed on it .....  :headscratch:

Unfortunately t'internet does not seem able to locate one with a

'NEVER UNDERESTIMATE AN OLD BAT WITH A RENAULT'

logo so I'm unable to return the favour ....  :LittleDevil:

Two great big halogen lights for the Clausing mill!     I'm waiting on the hard ware and electrical to mount them...but that's in transit.
