Love the new format! You two got a lot of info packed into a nice tight show. I second your recommendation of the Village Carpenter. I think Kari puts out the slickest, information packed, amateur blog available. Then again, I’ve loved your site from the beginning, so what do I know:D

a suggestion on the Ryobi “free tool” offer. I took advantage of this at the store rather than online. If you do it online you must go through the typical hoops of filling out rebate forms, cutting out UPCs, etc. And Home Depot seems to have a tendency for messing with your trust when it comes to rebates.

Go in the store. I picked up the $159 Super Combo, which includes drill, circ saw, recip saw, flashlight, two NiCad batteries and charger.

For my free tool I got the additional lithium battery and advanced charger, which normally sells for $119 by itself.

If your HD is like mine chances are good the employees there will have no idea what tools are valid for the “free” offer. Bring a printout of the details on the website to avoid argument.

Pretty nice deal on moderately reasonable tools. If you do it through the store, there’s no paperwork, nothing to fill out or wait for!

great video guys! like the new format. taking your advice Matt i looked for a super uber laser bushing centerer and couldn’t find one, lol! looking forward to the next show!

Hey, congrats, Marc on the regular column!! That is a great gig. You should be honored and proud. Look forward to reading it.

Well, I just finished episode 37. I really do like the idea of segments. It kind of pulls it together and keeps it moving smoothly. Great job. I really enjoyed listening.
Mind if I offer my two cents on the questions you had?

For the teenage woodworker, the problem of bushing alignment can only go away with a better router. I know itâ
