  1. Our granddaughter’s other grandfather has a ranch in south Texas and loves to be outdoors. Her dad taught her to shoot at an early age and turned her loose in a blind at age 14 and scored this doe. This year, she was taken off of the doe, cull buck only list and got this 10 pt. fellow. She’s darn good at the pistol range too when we can find ammo.

  2. Or you could just do what I did - order miscellaneous stuff from Amazon and they include it in the shipment for free!

  3. Thanks All, I made a few inserts out of scrap today. You can really crank these things out if you gang them for operations. I'm hoping reconfiguration as needs change will be easy.

  4. I solo unloaded a Powermatic 66 by strapping it to a subpar dolly and rolling it down the flat rails of an aluminum extension ladder. I have a pic but cannot figure out a way to insert it. *Edit- added photo

  5. They already have added all the shifts they can while still maintaining covid precautions. The trouble is, it's very risky and expensive to expand facilities to cope with a period of dramatic surge in demand when a year from now that could completely dry up. Federel for instance does not have any space to expand into and local restrictions make that additionally difficult because people are afraid of explosions in the city etc... not to mention to expand production they need to expand water supply and treatment and those facilities are expensive, complicated, and slow to implement. I do n

  6. Piggy bank the money you would spend on the warranty on every item you buy that is offered and see how much you save at the end. However, I don’t take that chance on health insurance.

  7. Insurance / warranty of any type is very much like visiting a casino. There used to be a billboard on the highway between Memphis TN and Tunica MS, which summarized it nicely: "Guaranteed 98% payout on all slots!" The way I read that, everyone that plays loses at least 2% of their money...

  8. Got the last set of doors up. Will need to put some trim up to hide the gaps around the sides. Not sure if we’ll match the existing door trim or take it all out and replace it when I do the rest of the doors. Before and after pics below. Need to get some knobs too.

  9. This fixture is a little premature since I do not have any shop wall to put it on at this time. Cabinets like this can be pretty specific to the woodworker using them but, that's one of the benefits of being a woodworker . . . we get to build things to fit our own needs . There are an upper and lower cabinet. The upper has grooves to accept slide-in shelves, drawers, or custom tool holders if/when my requirements change over time. The lower has a shelf that slides in from the rear. The back is removable. The current configuration of the lower holds two of the plastic bins that are on

  10. I'm actually hoping that my dad had some ready to go if not I'm sure he has reloading supplies, becuase he was planning on shooting trap league, so I can knock them out quick. At least that's what I am hoping to do

  12. And reloading supplies are just as bad. You would think the manufacturers would put on another shift to meet the demand. Kind of like HD having 2 checkers with 20 people in line to pay.

  15. This isn't all that uncommon in other manufacturers. I try and do a good hard brake with my vehicles a couple times a month when no one is near me on the road just to make sure all the brakes are working. The problem started happening when manufacturers went to rear disc brakes. The proportioning valve is set to something like 70% front but that leaves the rear brakes hardly ever getting used. I think with drum brakes it was set a bit more rear as they tended to have a bit less power. So even on your next vehicle make sure to use the brakes a couple times a month helps keep them working.

  16. Things look more 'done' with pulls and catches. I used magnets and washers recessed but, a bit proud to leave and even reveal. I bought two lid stays but, one is more than adequate. I still need to make the inserts but, other duties call today.

  17. Product warranties generally a bad idea. Actuaries are the people that calculate the cost to the company offering the warranty. The customer is calculated to pay their equal share of costs plus profit. The profit on this type of warrant is 15 to 18 percent. So in general over the long run your premiums end up being more than if you hired out for repairs. There are exceptions. In life insurance they demand to know your complete medical records. Not so in product insurance. Be your own judge. Know what type of products may not last for you because of how you use it. If you carried a lap to

  18. When I was shopping for my Domino I called the Seattle Woodcraft store. The store is about an hour south of of me with out traffic. I had a couple question I wanted answered before I bought it so I called the store before I made the drive. The guy I talked to on the phone did not want to give me any info over the phone. I explained to him I had cash in hand and just want some info before I made the drive down thru Seattle. He still refused to answer any question. He kept telling me to just come in. I then found another dealer 1-1/2 hours north so I called them. Not only did they answer all of

  19. That is going to severely limit shopping choices. Drop shipping from the manufacturer is very common & there's nothing wrong with it. Why incur the extra cost of shipping from manufacturer to seller to end user. And no matter what they say about free shipping, it is the end user that pays.
