    Would it be great to have a premium tools for a frequent, critical task - of course yes- best rational for indulging in tool lust ever (eg. "I need the tools because I'll use it a lot for important stuff")..

    Is there a charmic benefit in buying a tools that supports true masters of a disappearing craft- duuuh- of course Yes.

    Finally, will I be e-mailing Stan for the perfect pairing chisel of my dreams--- ....... inevitably Yes.


    I'm helpless in the face of rational temptation, --- that and Mexican food. Ken I blame you - YeaH that's right I SAID IT - Hatch you are at fault here! I demand recompense in the form of Mexican food and Tequila next time you're road tripping through San Diego. OK maybe that was a little harsh---.... how about I spring for chow/booze at the dive, hole in the wall taqueria of my choice? There- I feel better now - off to the SC Blog!

    Cheers, Mike
    Mike,

    LMAO, Sorry to do it to you man but you did a great job of rationalization . I expect MsBubba and I will make a trip to San Diego come late November early December. If it works out that we do, I'll buy the beer, you pick the taqueria.

    Wow Phil! So you ordered these like four days ago? It's getting really hard to resist sending Stan an email!

    Thanks, Pete. I guess it's been a loooooong while since I've been on Sawmill Creek.
