Does anyone put tools on their wishlist for Santa? What looks good this year? I always have a hard time coming up with ideas.

I'd like a spectrum analyzer that goes up to about 5GHz.

I don't think Santa will be obliging this year though -- Mucho pesos!

Ok here’s my story.
In October for my birthday my wife gave me a hammer, pry-bar, carpenters pencils, and a pencil sharpener for carpenters pencils. Her birthday is two weeks later. I told he I was thinking about getting her a frying pan and spatula. She informed me the first thing she would use the frying pan was to whack me on the head!
Tools for guy I guess that’s fine for the wife no way!!

Dear Santa,
Momma Tiff, would like a new vaccuum, with a power nozzle.

Does Bosch make vacuums?

I like the look of those central vacuum units stashed away in a closet or basement with a plug-in outlet in each
room.

Did I say outlet? I guess I meant INLET!

I agree with you on the vacuum. I like the idea of just plugging in the hose and let it get all the dust out. But, since my house is already old, it would be hard to add into the existing walls. Kinda like cutting in the new panel that I would like to have. It is going to be a lot of tearing out and putting back in. Not a colorful thought, except green (as in money) .

OOOOhhhhhh now,
How do you think I stay in shape?
By lugging house hold equipment, that is how.
No Central Vac system needed or wanted here, well maybe in my retirement years, but not yet. Besides at retirement '66 gets to help with the household chores.
I must be one of very few that enjoy getting cook wear and recipe books for Christmas and Birthday.
One can never have too many sauce pans!

Bill,
Recently thumbed through the C. Crane and company - Radio, Light and Science catalog - lotta neat widgets in there. Nothing in the way of contractor tools though.
