I remember seeing their catalogs in the 1980's and wishing that one day I could justify buying one. My first arrived a week ago. Haven't used it yet, but sure have handled it.

I fear the beast has been loosed.

Peter started it and Roger made me order a JMP v2. Bad, bad, bad. Retirement delayed.

Cool! Three victims (not counting myself). I wonder who else I've seduced to the dark side?

I should be getting a commission for this!

Dear Poobah,

Let us not be taking too much credit as it was I who introduced you to the entire dark side if you recall?

Well, I don't recall. But that's nothing new. I have to admit that you've been a great influence on my tool collection, and a terrible influence on my wallet, Fred. Good for the economy, if nothing else!

I was the one that started you on the whole hand tool side and I want my due.
