I'll start. Includes new scoots to cars etc.
While I am waiting for a loan to buy a new scoot, I dropped a little cash on something nice. I will be coming from a 10 year old samsung syncmaster 710n 17" to this 24" 1080p 144Hz monitor. This new monitor will match up perfectly with my nvidia card as they both use g-synce "nvidia technology". Will be here soon.
Just bought a bad ass SNAP ON tool set (65 peace ratchets/sockets),and I gotta say by far the best tools I own so far!!! I paid $160 for teh set and well worth it IMO..
Good quality tools will give you a lifetime of use. I still regularly use my 1/4 socket set I have had for about 30 years

Every time I've tried to use my little old $30 drill press it's got on my nerves and shown me it isn't good for much. Saw this open box special at a significant discount so I got it. The box looked horrible, but I didn't find any issues with it. Selling a Mustang cat-back I've had around for years to cover the cost. Built the stand out of 2x4s and 4x4s that were leftover from other projects. I'm hoping to set it up something like this guy did :

That Frisbee will soon be chock full of chips.
I spin my table too often to keep it aligned in one position. A fix for that would be a dam made from some epoxy or electrical duct putty on the arm. I have had my similar drill press for some 35 years and have never had to use a flood coolant system. I just use slow speeds and a little WD-40 or cutting oil when necessary.
I also have an X-Y table mounted on my drill press along with a vise. I find that extremely useful.
I just bought a new Brother laser printer/scanner/copier/fax to replace an ancient HP ink $$$$ jet printer/scanner/copier. It will be installed when I get A ROUND TUIT along with new SSD drives and W-7 operating systems on my computers.
I should have been working on the scoot or outside today but I have been sick all day. A small variation in med dosages. When I get 'off' it is dangerous to work on things.

Yeah, that's because what you see there is my recent purchases.... Nothing
Time will come.
Right before my monitors gets here, my pc took a crap.
I've been troubleshooting it all day yesterday and will be today. A. My graphics card took a shit or b. my motherboard. Sux. What is happening is black screen of death on booting. Fresh install of win7 still happens. Leaning towards hardware malfuntion.
