luvmy40 Posted March 17 Share #1 Posted March 17 (edited) It's nice to have these First World conundrums! I recently got a nice pay raise and a small bonus. Enough to treat myself to a new toy or two. The problem is I can't decide what would be the best route to go. I have recently jumped back into wood working, and I have always wanted a good thickness planer. I have also always been an avid shooter and sold my last .308 to buy my '86 VR. I am also a complete and uterly hopeless knife junky. First, the money isn't enough to buy another Venture. There is a great deal from Home Depot right now for the Dewalt DW735 Planer with some add ons and a nice rolling stand. There is a gun shop down the street from my hotel(I'm workin in Birmingham for a few weeks) that has a Ruger American Rifle in .308 with a Sig 3-9X scope for about the same $ as the planer combo. There are several high end knives that I have wanted for a while that I could never justify. I don't need any of these. I want them all(including another Venture). Obviously, the knives would be the most superficial, least "useful" choice. I'm not sure which, between the rifle and the planer would be the most practical choice. I really don't have room to store a lot of rough sawn lumber, which is the primary reason for having a planer. For that matter, I don't shoot as often as I used to either. Help me decide how to spend my children's inheritance!😝 Edited March 17 by luvmy40 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
