It has to be spent, can't be saved. Just curious about what you want. No bills or food. None on kids, just you and other or you only. Must be for extra stuff only. Just pretend.

I would like to have a new dark chocolate, leather living room suite, hubby a gunsafe, new ceiling fans, and a new laptop HP for hubby. Widescreen. I think that I would be a few hundred over.

Wishful thinking only. :)

I think first I would do some work on Barb's place to make it better for her.
Any left, maybe some work on our place upstate.

Well, if Ruth didn't try to grab it all, and would accept half, (know what is a fat chance!?) I'd probably spend some of it on my old Ranger pickemup, and put the rest in my sock, to be spent on foolishness and fripperies!

I'd invest in crude oil futures. Buy gold? Get the cash and stash it somewhere.

The question is, would I have to spend it? If I had to spend it I most likely would find something to blow it on. I am not wealthy, but can afford to spend 5 grand when I want something and there is nothing I want or need enough NOW to spend the money on. I am happy and satisifed as I am and don't have much needs or wants. One needs to learn to be happy with what one has, and we are all wealthy compared to most of the world. TWS

Hey, me and Cliff are in agreement on this one. I asked what he'd do with $5,000 and he said, "I'd go on a motorcycle vacation."

It would be spent on travel within the borders of the United States. I'd love to see what the Rocky Mountains look like north of Colorado; I've not seen Yellowstone or the Grand Canyon; I'd like to visit New England. I've never been to California (although I'm not sure I care about going there any more).

I realize that amount wouldn't get me too far; I'd have to pick one or two out from the above list.

Realistically: Downpayment on a new car for SWMBO.

Selfishly: Gun safe, lathe and milling machine for my shop.

If you look around though, there are deals. I got the Bridgeport Mill at an auction with the newall digital readout for $300. I think it was the deal of the day. The lathe was $2,000. I have another South bend lathe that is a 13 inch swing by 6 foot bed that was $1,600. Also a brown and sharp surface grinder that was $600 on eBay. Bought a new 6 inch KURT vice for the mill about $300. Add it up and you have $4,800. Lookey there. $200 left fur booze -N- broads. Who says you can't do it fur five grand??? I did, and then some.

That'd do 'er! All 3 phase stuff? If so, you got 3 phase service or a converter?

I'd definitely go used on everything. With CNC being all the rage, used manual stuff is pretty reasonable.

I have...

a 5 hp rotory converter. It works well with everthing that I have and was a lot cheaper and easyier than changing motors on everything to single phase. Without this stuff, I could never keep the 15 Buick running. Manual stuff is cheap right now. A lot of small shops have gone out of business in this area the last 5 or 6 years and the market is flooded with this stuff. Most of the stuff I make is a "one off" so I don't need anything that is CNC. Never liked production work myself. Did some out of high school and was just board too death with it. After the second or third piece it felt like a waist of my talent so I moved on. Besides it didn't pay well. Dandy Dave!

I would use it to redo my kitchen. Or better yet, on a bigger and better shop. Dandy Dave!
