Happy Father's Day.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. I hope you have a chance to be with your children on this day in your honor. 

I have to be out of town but my daughter made me a wonderful meatloaf dinner last night. We spent time just sitting and talking. She is a great cook so I'm always thrilled to get one of her meals. 

My daughter is in her late twenties now but I remember the day she came into this world like it was yesterday. When my wife was expecting, I don't think it ever actually sunk in that I was going to be a dad. In the delivery room the nurse took my daughter to clean her up. When she turned to come back I thought she was going to hand Kellie to my wife. To my shock and surprise she handed her to me. That was the moment that I understood what it meant to be a dad. Scared the hell out of me!

The only honor greater than becoming a dad is becoming a mother. It's the most important job you will ever have in your lifetime. Some days it will be the toughest job you ever have. As the saying goes, nobody lays on their death bed and says they wish they had spent more time at work. Many have said they wish they had spent more time with loved ones. 

Enjoy your family and if you are traveling be safe. 

Drillnado and Scrollnado Updates:

In yesterdays Drillnado video review I mentioned that the fit of the bellows to the upper housing was loose. I spoke with the inventor of the Drillnado today (Chris Buczbek). Chris told me that they have redesigned the bellow for a tighter fit. The unit I have is several months old and the problem has now been fixed. 

Chris also gave me contact information that he says is okay to put out.

[email protected] is his email address and preferred method of contact. You can also reach him at (317)946-7506

Other good news from Chris is that the Scrollnado is now available for the Excalibur and Jet scroll saws. He does not have them on Amazon yet but you can contact him for details. The Scrollnado for the Excalibur and Jet are priced at $49.99.  Scrollnado video review.
