    I never had to hide tools from my wife. I do have to be careful how long I stay on any particular page of a tool catalog around her otherwise I'll end up with a warehouse full of tools since she is the tool junkie.

    My wife has been more than supportive of my tool addiction...

    She bought my planer, several of my hand planes, and even pointed out the miter saw that was a curb find that I used for trading wampum to get my mortiser...

    What can I say, my wife likes what I do with my tools...
    Trying to follow the example of the master...

    Hid Domino, when she saw it she asked how long I had had it, I lied, so all is well.
    I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, but I know of nothing to suggest it nothing more than wishful thinking.

    The two edged sword....

    When we first got married (32 years ago), I did all the bill paying.
    I let a credit card bill go one month and got tagged a $10.00 late fee.
    I blew it off - but my wife had a conniption over it.
    Ever since then, she's the one that pays the bills .
    (Best $10 I ever spent in my life!)

    The downside is that she goes through each bill with a fine tooth comb.
    I can't sneak anything past her so I don't even try.

    She's got me trained pretty well though. All she asks when I buy something is if I shopped around for the best price.

    I totally hide tools. I've got a PM mortiser still in the box and covered with other stuff and a stationary belt sander I hid behind the tool chest. It's okay though. I just found a stack of eight new shoe boxes hidden behind her chair!

    If I bought a new tool my lovely wife would only get angry if I did not go get her to show it to her and explain how it worked.
    I am truly a blessed man.

    Or you could try to convince her that Festool Green is the trademark color of the Kiwi equal of our Harbopr Freight, I assume you have such a store there...

    BTW I hope "Kiwi" is not a perjorative term, if so my apologies, I certainly did not mean it as such!
    5,306 miles from where the greatest things with 4 wheels are born
    5,328 miles from where the greatest things with 2 wheels are born
    5,301 miles from where the greatest things with 2 wheels and a band are born
    Seems to be more than a coincidence to me...

    Takes more than that to offend a Kiwi.

    Luckily she can't tell one tool from another, so reasonably easy to fool.

    Glad to here it, my only connection to NZ is a love the for All Blacks, a group I imagine are hard to offend, however as a group or individually they are folks I would not remotely want to offend! Having played a little in the US the fact that I wore #13 I am sure you will understand why I wouldn't want to offend that type of guy especially if they have a 1-8 on their chest!

    Good to see your lads at the world cup last year.

    They are getting better all the time.
