    Well Santa is giving me the same beautiful wife he has left off for me for the last twelve years.. And she has given me everything I ever wanted for the rest of the 364 days of the year. Thanks Santa, the gift that keeps on giving. Oh, and she doesn’t even batt an eye when I buy a Monarch in the middle of the year, Christmas or not.. Yup, thanks Santa for my wife.. JRouche

    Nothing.....

    I made a heck of a score last month already. Now it is time for the wife and kids.

    Oh ya - month of November -
    14 1/4 x 72 South Bend Lathe in pieces with taper attachment
    18 Troyke Rotary Table
    6 cu. ft. vibratory finisher
    Lapping Machine
    Johnson 14 x 7 Horizontal Bandsaw
    10" Bison, 8" Cushman, 6" Pratt Bernard and a couple other chucks I haven't cleaned up yet

    and enough tooling to outfit 2 or 3 T&C grinders

    I'm sure I missed a few things, but I am still sorting every thing out and cleaning them up

    Anyway I just ordered Mama one of those new cool phones that does every thing. Got the boys some new clothes and just need a few toys like a PS-3 to put under the tree now

    Funny, I'm getting the same machine. With any luck it'll be in my shop mid day on the 17th. Not a pristine example, but it is a well maintained machine. It's an early model with the single t-slot.

Gorgeous original condition, even the rubber boots on the universal joints on the table driveshaft are pristene. Since he already has a Adcock and Shipley, the Sheldon will be mine. I will doubtless sometime in the future pay dearly, but there aren't many cherry small horizontals to be had at any price. So while it doesn't exactly qualify as a christmas present, it's pretty close enough for me.

    I'm hoping they'll get shipped before Christmas...an older but heavy Wells bandsaw and a cool little German made turret lathe.
    Oh...and a "I hope this helps" T shirt

    If I'm lucky, I'll get about half as much aluminum as one guy around here seems to get. Think I'm gonna look for one of them aluminum trees to grow around here Failing all that, some heat for the shop would be nice.

    I don`t know about being good. But Santa brought me two power feed unites for my mill one for the knee and one for the y axis . Sure was nice of him. And they work good. but like all Chinese tools you have to modify things, not just a quick bolt on as you would think.

    A new camera, for being a good boy

    A new flight bag, for being a good boy

    And a ticket to China leaving on Boxing day, for being a bad boy

    What Is Santa Bringing You?

    So assuming that you have been a good boy/girl, what is Santa bringing you for the HSM shop?
