Lets be honest, who doesn't plot plan and scheme over a tool or machine purchase?
I look in the kitty and see how much is in the new tool fund, then plan my next purchase, I was thinking maybe to get a new, bigger Quick Change Toolpost, but that would cost - with all of the toolholders- about the same as a Scheppach bandsaw I have seen.
So then I reach a sort of mental impasse - so abandon that whole idea, I did see a really nice Micro-Boring head. Now I am not exactly sure what I would use it for, but boy does it look great. I would be able to bore really precise holes with that. In the end I have bought a couple of boxes of tool tips from APT. But I could do with a vertical bandsaw.

Yes spring is virtually upon us and green paint fever is just around the corner.
I keep looking at gear hobbers, told myself I need to downsize and don't want one but how can you NOT look at a nice gear hobber ?

Take some nice pictures and use it as your screen saver! The excitement will wear off after a year or so.
