Re: What do you want for Christmas?

A proper AXA style quick-change toolholder for my lathe, a turret for the tailstock, a drill-chuck and a hollow-mill with four specific sets of cutters (see attached drawings) as well as a set of boring bars (see attached specifications) and three sets of HSS and two sets of indexable cemented carbide cutters (see attached chart).

Sounds like alot but I think I can swing all that after tax season provided (!) that SWMBO keeps HER job and this gig pushing wood-stoves lasts.

Failing that... I wish for a decent job in a machine-shop as a setup-operator. No leadership No material handling. No "other duties as assigned." (see attached resume and salary requirements)

Re: What do you want for Christmas?

I'd like, just for once, to be able to sit down for my Christmas dinner, pull a cracker and actually get a decent joke from it and a decent present.

That is all that I wish for this Christmas.

It may sound corny, but all I want for Christmas is a great Christmas for my son.

Thank you. I was going to ask for Irony.

Let's see, what do I really want? I suppose Linda Park or Gina Torres are out of the question, so how about that two-volume hardcover Don Martin collection? Or any of the many TV show DVD sets that I haven't gotten yet, like Kung Fu Season Two or Friday The 13th Season One.

Oh, heck, just surprise me.

A Tivo.

Also, a few of the expansions for Sims 2 (Apartments, University, Free Time).

I would like a new laptop some day soon, but I don't expect that to ever happen. I'm sure there's other things I want, but I can't seem to think of them right now.

Nice ties you linked to there, Mr Holdfast.

I wouldn't mind a new iPod so I had more storage space (currently using a 6GB iPod mini which is 3 years and four months old) as I am really running out and have so much music I want to put on there.

I'd quite like some new slippers too. And socks. Socks are always good.
