    Uh Oh. My wife got to the door before me when UPS dropped off $120 worth of Pinewood Derby testing supplies. Good thing she didn't see the cash sales lately. Or know how much time I have invested in the "Other" things I've made this month alone (CNC machinist). Oh well got a lot of things I need to learn, try and test.

    I feel you! I use to be able to order and track the package. When it arrived, I’d simply go home and lunch and pick up before she got home! Now the USPS does an annoying thing where they email you a picture of everything that will arrive that day! Doh! I’m limited to one small package per month. Has to be light too, lol, so no tungsten.

    It occurred to me I simply need to have it sent to my work!

    Been there! As a matter a fact was just out this morning buying stuff! However, I wll tell you that my bride doesnt say much anymore, as there are other hobbies that I could get into that are more money and more time consuming...But more importantly, it was the tools and knowledge from PWD that has helped us fix other things around the house, and all I had to do was mention, good thing I had this tool for PWD or we would have had to pay some joker a 100 bucks an hour to fix this or that...True story. I do still get the eye roll every other day though hahaha

    Just think, you could have golf as a hobby and be dropping 800-1000 on each club in your bag.

    LOL, Didn't think I would be alone in my dog house. She knows I'm an overachiever when I get into anything. Well on with the testing and building, secretly of course.

    Yeahhhhhh... I have this hobby and golf... and this year, I am looking to upgrade my fairway woods to the new Taylormade M5 series... I already put the idea out there that way the money doesn't go to waste as she breaks it over my head when it comes home. LOL
