I still have AAA Plus, going on 12 years I think.

Currently I drive a lot of miles for work.  A single tow bill would cover my membership for a few years.  The AAA towing allowance is additive to the towing mileage provided by other programs.

I’ve used their passport photo services a few times, received free maps, got discounted hotel rates, and I’m sure there’s more.

I still have it and probably won't get rid of it.  More of a piece of mind thing.  Roadside assistance is the main service.  They do offer maps, insurance, trip assistance, discounts on things and by us vehicle maintenance.

My family had AAA when I was growing up.  I remember frequenting the local office for maps, which my mother had a penchant to hoard.  Actually while cleaning out my parents' house recently, I recycled all those maps, and it was very cathartic.  Then I found more stashed away, and I recycled those too.  But I do have fond memories of heading over there and having a helpful employee highlight the route we'd take for an upcoming trip.  It was all very exciting for me of course as the designated backseat navigator.  Oh, let's pick up a guidebook or two while we're here too!

My wife and I had their auto insurance and home insurance until the late 2000s, but there stopped being much of a distinction between their services and other insurance companies as far as I could tell.  So we eventually switched out.  My parents, however, remain with them for auto and have had some recent claims, and AAA has been fine.


 Yes, same memories - those custom maps - TripTiks in the spiral bound cases with the route highlighted in marker, with those very helpful 'grownups" in the office.

Festool Jigs & Tool Enhancements / Re: MFT jig/template

I've drilled probably close to a 500 holes with my 1400 and the Festool 20mm bit.  I have a 64" x 102" cutting/assembly table and have built half a dozen other portable tops and all the holes were snug for the dogs and other accessories.

@rst  Curious...Is that the 20mm hinge boring bit, 491072, that Festool recommends using with their routers?

We'd be interested in seeing photos of the final project when it's finished.  [big grin]

I see nothing on FTUSA site that specifically states the outdoor oil is food safe.  If one is using this product for one’s own purposes there are no restrictions on materials that can be used (conscience is the guide), BUT if one is catering to the public that is another story. I would not use any material for areas of food contact unless I had on file the proper MSDS to protect me.

As a matter of fact, the Festool Technical Data Sheet #223, points out these lines in bold letters.

Contains cobalt carboxylate - may trigger allergic reactions.

Contains iodine propynyl butyl carbamate - may trigger allergic reactions.

Unfortunately my car's warranties expired a few years back ... Honda's and Toyota's run forever  [smile].  I could add it to my insurance policy for a few dollars a month per car ..  Just never got around to it .. Although it would probably be about the same cost as I'm paying to AAA ...  I do see your point..  Maybe I'll call my insurance guy to compare which is always fun  [crying]       

 Do they still offer those hard copy maps - "TripTiks?"
