I almost feel like I should list all of the guilty parties for making me buy this lot .. @Peter Parfitt and @Runhard would be on the higher end of the guilt ladder, but there are so many to thank [big grin]

I must say, buying online from http://www.incrementaltools.com/ and shipping to Australia was ...

Well priced

Quickly shipped
Cost effective for international freight

Honourable guilt mention ... @Locky [wink]

Jeez Kev, you starting up a new dealership.
This is going to be my new screensaver! [tongue]

I bought a new house today with a 845sqft 3 car garage and a 20x20 space in the basement for shop space. This is a big improvement over the 250sqft basement shop that I currently have! I bought a Hammer A3-41 with silent cutter head back in December and received it in March that I will finally be able to take out of storage. I will now need to purchase a tablesaw. I'm wishing that I went with a Felder over the Hammer so that I won't feel the need to upgrade a few years down the road. I also bought 2 axes and a Sloyd knife from Lie Nielsen. I also just bought a bike, but that's not shop related.

Just ordered a Lamello Zeta P2 and related stuff ...

Lamello Zeta P2 Machine and Elements Kit
Lamello Invis Mx2 Starter Kit
Divario P18 Starter Pack
Divario P18 Marking Jig Kit
True Position Drill Guide Basic Jig

I'm taking advantage of the Lincoln Sentry AWISA promotion that ends in a few days (for people in Oz). Sadly I have to wait a few weeks for their stock to turn up.

Seems the Divario connectors installation for the twin hole piece is a match for the Mafell DD40 ... my resolve to avoid buying Mafell gear is getting seriously weak [embarassed] [sad]

Incra Mast-R-Lift II
Set of clean sweep MagnaLOCK rings
Porter-Cable guide bushing MagnaLOCK ring.

It's replacing an old (pre-2006) Jessum belt-driven lift that is sticking badly.  I know Incra is made by Jessum, but no one is complaining about the new lifts sticking, so I'm hopeful.  The clean sweep rings were part of the decision, as I'd like to improve the airflow from the top of the table to my under-table dust collection port.

For me was Snap-On day again :)

Finally got my 1/2" 16.9 to 339 Nm TechAngle torque wrench  [drooling] [drooling] [drooling] [drooling] [drooling] [drooling] [drooling]

Getting acquainted to it in my friend's (and Snap-On Dealer) van.



And here it is:

Never used one before..... Ive been having some fun.... Shitting my pants.  I have soon learnt I HATE hollowing deep bowls its slow...boring.... and tense lol

Orderd a few Robert Sorby chisels.  Decided needed bigger stuff for hallowing so ordered sovereign chisels and Hope hollowing system with camera.  Although I did really want Clarks hollowing system or Korby but both American so not easy to get.  So settled with a less heavy duty british version. Hopefully it will come tomorow.

I bought a couple of Aldi cheap clamps and made a rack for them. They're not the best quality but very cheap and will be useful. £2.50 each is what they work out to be.



Im just getting some prices on clamps. Got one price 😭😭
Clamps are so expensive.  Yet I have been stung couple times with cheap.
But £2.50 is cheap enough to say  it.

BUT ... you've become a wood turner and there's nothing in your future that doesn't involve check flannelette shirts and long curly beards [big grin] [big grin] [big grin]

Ironically it's the Invis system that's got me curious - and you don't need the Zeta to install them.

My local has a promo on Bessey (that I don't think goes for much longer) .. you get 30% off if you buy a mixed 10 clamps. Just don't know what to grab. K-Blocks are great, but have quite a few already.

Is that scary mask in the van the one your friend uses to rob banks to pay for his Snap-on addiction? [smile]

Hey Kev!

Basically it's a secret, but I guess it's safe to tell you, here on a woodworking platform  [scared] [scared]:

My friend and I, we have a side business. We travel the world to exorcise those pesky GEDORE'mons from car- and other workshops... It's quite dangerous  [scared]  [scared], doesn't pay as well as robbing banks  [eek] [eek], but the revenue through owning Snap-On shares - is OK  8) 8) 8). I mean, the harder we work, the more Snap-On is bought and shareholder value raises...

Here's a picture of me in action. That was quite a beast, had to bring out the crossed ratchet and pop-up screwdriver, too.... ;) ;) ;)



Kind regards,
Oliver

PS: Maybe for those that don't know, it's a face shield for welding/welding helmet - Snap-On offers a lot of cool "patterns" even an "Iron Man"... :)

To add to the above, I took advantage of a Woodcraft sale to get the big boy PC router motor.  Just couldn't resist.  Added the 1/4" collet.

A while back I routed my left index finger doing something that I knew better than to do.  So I picked up a Woodpecker Free-Hand Guard as well.

And a couple of silicon glue cups.

Missing part from my last Snap-On order came in Friday.

Snap-On CTUSB761 - turns the 14,4V Micro-Lithium battery packs into a power bank (5V 1A). (( @Festool USA maybe something to consider for the 10.8V and/or 18V batteries? - Would buy one straight away to throw into my CXS Systainer... :) ))

Today I picked a peck of Pica Pencils


I'm also getting to crank up the base for my new Incra Positioner (thanks Precision Dogs)


" ... I'm just mad about saffron ..." (they call it my Lamello)


and it's got connections


You'll never ever see these out in the wild


I think "Divario" must be Italian for "I forgot to install a shelf before I assembled it ..."


Then there's the old real estate mantra ... position, position, position


I think the planets must have aligned today!!! [eek]

@Kev I am interested in what you do with the Invis, and also how the TruePosition jig works out.

That Zeta should be useful...

@Holmz the Invis is targeted at an interesting way of connecting fins to boards (think big old timber stuff). It'll be a while before I get to play with it, but it was available for a promo price .. can't pass that by.

The TP jig is very nicely made. Yes - looking forward to using it [smile]
