Hi!

I love picture threads  [eek] [eek] [eek] and I love being inspired by purchases other people make  [scared] [scared]  [eek] [eek]  [big grin] [big grin] - it would be really cool if we could get this thread running.

Please share whatever you feel like sharing when you made a tool / workshop related purchase - even the smallest gizmo/gadget  [big grin]  [big grin]  [big grin] Just no new Festool purchases, as there is an existing thread for that on the main board. :)

I'll kick it off with my new, personalized Dryplexx Softshell Work/Shop-Jacket from Engelbert-Strauss I received today among with some personalized workshop T-Shirts, too.




Kind regards,

My latest was two Bessey 24" clamps. I don't have a picture, but just imagine what one Bessey 24" clamp looks like, and double it.
I hate signatures.

A Rockler Dust RIGHT Cord and Hose Holder.  It doesn't swing around like the Festool Dust Extractor boom, but it's much less expensive and might serve until I can build my own out of PVC.

Some Makita old style systainer knock-offs and some Kaizen foam to organize them.  We'll see how that works.

A cheap sound meter off of Amazon.  I'm going to measure the sound of different tool combinations in my shop.  I'm still wondering if I can get away without ear protection for a CT 36 and ETS EC 150/3.

Some Mirka interface pads for my ETS.

Some quantum tilt out bin sets for small parts.

This is my first full summer in my new shop.  I have 8" insulated walls.  The other day it was 87* outside, my shop was 74*, way too warm for my liking.  So today I picked up this window AC unit.   I was originally going to go all out with a Mitsubishi ductless wall mount AC unit.   But I'm gonna give this little guy a try before dropping the coin on the Mitsubishi unit.   This is a little big box store number that didn't break the bank.



This past Saturday I visited my local woodworking store.   I don't know how, but the Bosch GTS1031 table saw found it's way into the bed of my truck..... [cool]



Lastly, a while ago I received the Ultimate Dust Deputy from Toolnut. 
 
As of now, all three new items for my shop are STILL in the original boxes.   That will all change tomorrow morning. 
First I'll install the AC unit.  Second I'll set up the Bosch table saw and then I'll hook up the UDD to my CT26. 
All so I can start building a chicken coop !    [scared]
The chicken coop is not for me.  I'm actually gonna get paid for building something  [eek]   [eek]

My 20 yr old Jet table saw's motor failed on me last Sunday. The SawStop was an unexpected but not unanticipated purchase that same day. The Jet would have been on it's third motor service. The added power, much improved dust collection and safety features drove the decision that I would not sink any more money into the Jet. I had considered the Jobsite model but stability and power won out over portability. A bonus was being able to use my cast iron router table on the new saw. The saw works great!

I didn't buy it today but a while back I bought some B+W P5 wireless headphones. They are truly incredible sounding and I wear them at work, on walks and a lot in my shop as passive noise suppression.

Comfy as heck and brilliant sound to boot!



Cheers. Bryan.

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.

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

You're not guilty on the bike .. That's my Yeti 575, parked there as I'm about to put the AYUP's on for a bit of night trail riding.
