I bought myself a Kutrimmer!

Kutrimmer 1071So I had planned to spend this week blogging about my weekend with Carol Barton, but today I got distracted.

I did it.

I bought myself a Kutrimmer 1071.

As I discussed in this post, I have wanted one of these puppies forever. And today I bought one. I can’t believe it. I’d been watching one on Ebay marked with Buy it Now/Make an Offer. The Buy it Now price was $884.10 with free shipping. I decided to offer $700, which was about a 20% discount. The offer was accepted within half an hour.

Of course, there’s that nagging part of me that wonders why I didn’t offer less…the seller accepted my offer so quickly…

So now I just have to make a list of all the fun things I’m going to cut. That should make for an interesting blog topic. Kutrimmer…meet cheese (maybe not). Suggestions anyone?

One way to easily improve how a kuttrimmer works is to bolt it firmly to a worksurface (at the proper height, lower than normal workbench height) and build an outfeed table on the left side to support long strip of board. Jeff

That’s good advice. We did that with our miter saw and it does keep things from wiggling around as much. Now I just need to find the space to do it…
