Approaching 1/2 Million

As the magic milestone of 1/2 a million visits to this website rapidly approaches, I’ve been giving some thought to how to mark the occasion.  In the past, I’ve given a prize to the visitor who actually hit that milestone, but as the counter only updates every 10 minutes or so, it kept resulting in multiple winners.

So instead, I’m going to take a different approach, which also better recognises all visitors, and not just those who were awake (literally, given the worldwide audience!) at the time the mark was met. So what I propose to do is get a few prizes together and you then enter the draw (once), nominating which prize draw you want to be entered into.

I’ll put up a post in the next week or so with a list of which prizes are being included (have to do it soon – the 1/2 million mark will be passed in 3-4 weeks time max!)

However, I will mention here that one prize will be one of the US style Triton Router Collets (with both the 1/2″ and 1/4″ fittings) This is the self-releasing style collet that I was trying for a long time to get Triton to make available to the Australian community.


1/4″ fitting pictured here, and it is simplicity itself to switch between the 1/4″ and 1/2″. BTW, the collet in the giveaway is brand new fwiw (and is both natively 1/4″ and 1/2″ – no more adapters and 1/4″ inserts (and bit slippage) with this puppy)! Fits both the 2400W and 1400W Triton routers. And no, I don’t have an external supply of these collets – the one I’m giving away is from my personal stock of Triton spares (and is pretty much the last spare one of these collets I have). Whomever wins it can spuriously gloat to their heart’s content.
