    At the present rate of inflation buying and keeping an extra month's groceries and storing them on the new shelves may pay for the shelves in short order.

    Just spent $60 for a carbide 65x.300 dovetail milling bit, on sale. This replaces the HSS $30 one I just had purchased and didn't make it through one front sight build job.... Often it pays to pay more once than more the second time around....

    I am afraid to go shopping for lumber. Maybe I can trade some farm fresh eggs for good hardwood....

    I should have finished my collection of the mitered door frame router bits years ago. They are spendy!

    That probably only means you paid too much for it 8 years ago! :-)

    One thing I found that has not increased much . . . Don't laugh . . .


    I bought one 8 years ago and LOML looked at me like I was crazy. I told her that she liked them in Japan. It didn't take her but a day to learn to appreciate it. There were not that many versions available back then, even on Amazon. Well, the heated seat quit working a week ago. I started looking for a new one and more expensive of course. BUT LOML HATES Change, She did not want a new version! She did not want one with a hand held remote either. She wanted the same one. Amazon still had that model of 8 years ago and the company still made and sold the same model, plus parts. I ordered and received the same model again at the same price of 8 years ago. LOML is HAPPY.

    BTW, replacement seats are available, so I ordered a replacement seat today and it will go into the guest bathroom. I will have to disassemble the back part with the electronics in it, but it doesn't look too difficult.

    Everything has gotten more costly. My $2,499 electric riding mower is now $3,199. The Whiteside bowl bit I recently bought was $45.

    Spiral carbide router bits -expensive!

    I thought I wanted a 3/8" diameter spiral downcut bit 1/2" shank for a project

    Wow sticker shock. Guess its been a while since I bought any solid carbide bits.


    $49 at MLCS
    Amana or Whiteside at Amazon about $65
    No-name at Amazon started around $32.

    Guess I'll just use my HSS straight 3/8" bit in my MLCS set.
