    • Got the quote for a custom cut mirror, $88. Not bad considering the mirror I broke was $50. I knew i should have just gone to the professional to begin with. I've thought about making  a sled like that but now that I have 3 miter gauges it's just as easy to square between 2 of them. This way I don't have to store a unitasker sled.
    • Besides woodworking I am an orchid collector and grower. I have around 200 plants.  There is always something in bloom. Some people think I do the impossible. I let them think that but the truth is orchids are very easy. Just much different than all other plants. For one they are mostly air plants. Each species group have their own rules but it is not demanding. No row to how. No getting on your hands and knees. When invited for diner I bring a cut flower. That keeps the invitations coming. Orchids make a statement. And a couple of years ago Florida allows medical marijuana. So when i am done in the shop I light up. Far better than the oxycodone prescribed for me. My skeleton has issues that caused me to have several surgeries. The legal weed is a blessing. It will not disease me or kill me. It puts a grin on my face. Cant drink anymore either. Acid reflux. Weed is a healthier replacement and works for me.
    • When I built my mitre sled for the table saw 90 was the most important. It is close to 45 plus or minus a tiny. What matters is the 90. works great.
    • It would be a worthwhile hobby if it didn't suck up money like a sponge.
    • My first and only lift. The speed and accuracy is easy. An eighth of a turn on the crank is 1/64 inch with increment dividing 1/64 8 times. The lock is sure.
