    What did the "holiday elf" bring you for your woodworking addiction?

    So...what did the jolly elf put in your stocking, under your tree or wherever your own family tradition lands for year end holiday gift giving/receiving?

    -----

    Professor Dr. SWMBO graced me with a very nice set of Fisch metric forstner drill bits, a Zhen bread knife blank to handle and a set of Bessey clamp support blocks...all items on "my list". Oh, and my older daughter provided more Duluth Trading base layer clothing since I'm in the shop pretty much daily and keep the thermostat at 62F when working.

    A Minimax FS30. Technically it came in last week. But it was one of the last units on sale so I had to snap it up a few days early.

    Two Centroid Acorn cpu motion controllers and the lathe and mill pro software upgrades, a 22" touchscreen monitor, and a automation direct 2500ppr 10000cpr quad line encoder for my lathe headstock. This is diy cnc metal tool stuff but tools just the same.

    Also got the LV block plane on cyber monday. Also some mechanix gloves.

    Before Christmas I was troubleshooting one of the wife's Christmas ornaments and the free Japanese analog DVM I was given 20 year ago, died. It was fatal. So for Christmas, the wife gave me a replacement digital auto-scaling DVM with a temperature sensing probe. I also received two cases for the meter (one of the leads and one for the meter) from a DIL. Not woodworking related but useable in the shop and the house.

    Our son gave me "Understanding Wood" by Hoadley. Looking forward to the read and having it as a reference! Xmas with our daughter later this week. Life is good.
