    Cool Happy birthday to me - birthday gloat

    Here is some of the stuff I got from the wife and kids for my birthday (26th I think ).

    Irwin quick clamp - very handy ... can never have enough.

    Incra V27 - for the panel saw. I've been wanting one of these for ages. I'll need to put a shim in the T slot as the panel saw's slot is about 2mm greater than the Incra bar and I don't think the adjusters will go that far.

    2 1/8" Hare Brothers plane - my wife picked this up from the markets on the weekend (quite cheaply I understand). It looks like it has only been used a couple of times. The blade is a Marples. Works well, but I found it a little difficult to adjust.

    A Bailey/Stanley No 5. Plane - All it really needed was the handle tightened and the blade sharpened. Beautiful to use.
    Cheers.

    Vernon.

    We are just on a hobby farm, so it's a bit of everything. We have Marino's, Dohne's and crossbreds. The ram is a Donhne. We eat them (well the wife and kids do - I don't like lamb), and sell the wool and actually manage to make some money off them. I would love more property though, I just don't have the time to deal with it.

    Yeah, this has to be the first birthday where I have managed to avoid such presents.
    Cheers.
