    Elementary??

    Math major here, no recollection of the rule of doubles or exponential piss, but based the definitions above I apparently didn't have enough fun in college. Then again, few math majors do... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Finally got around to making the matching end tables... Has it really been two years?!?!?
  3. The runners may have shifted when you screwed them in ever so slightly, but enough to cause them to bind. Using the AC glue locks your runners into place so they are less likely to shift when you screw them down. Finishing Paste wax the big box will have it in the paint department. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Also, Screwed from bottom or top not important as long as the runners don't move on you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Agree with treeslayer. If they aren't glued now, remove your runners, ensure the still slide freely. If so, shim with dimes or something so they are just proud of the table top. Add AC glue then lower the sled material using the TS fence as a guide. Once the Ac glue has dried, flip the assembly upside down, drill pilot holes (don't reuse old screw holes) and screw the runners into place. Wax, repeat your 5 cut adjustments and you should be good to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Coincidentally I just built the Nick Ferry sled yesterday but modified it to have a replaceable ZCI and to be able to accommodate the blade at 45degrees. Nick said he wished he made the t-track openings larger to handle longer bolts but I didn't understand why he wouldn't just end the t tracks short of the rear fence (maybe to maximize capacity?), so that is what I did. It's a real easy build I wouldn't let the minor additional time investment stop you, but the Kreg parts aren't cheap... Only having used it a couple times I like how quickly I can cut to length with the stop vs fiddling around to cut to a marked line. Not necessary to have a fancy sled, but so far I dig it.

    High hold, just like epoxy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Baltic birch sawdust mixed with epoxy looks like snot.

    Awesome this is working out for you, Whatever keeps you motivated. I have a whole trainer setup that I hardly ever use. Heat doesn't stop my rides and I've ridden in weather as cold as 13degrees F. Going out always sounds better than stationary riding to me. But to your point about your virtual coach, a stationary setup is hard to beat for a very regimented workout, interval training or long constant effort something of the sort.

    I lived in Chicago while in grad school, cool city with lots to do but the weather is awful, and to your point south side is a war zone. All in (and adjusting income for cost of living) I would still pick Charlotte over the Windy City. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hijack!

    Totally random but this line brought me back about 10 years ago when my wife used to drag me out on couples dates when she was trying to make friends as a recent transplant to Charlotte. Anyway, we are out and the husband of this lady is going on and on with this arrogant diatribe about how mundane and not cool Charlotte is. How much better LA is, how it doesn't hold a candle to Chicago... He finishes with "...and don't get me started on the Arts..." Then he said the same phrase two more times that evening, apparently fishing but getting no bites. My wife and I mocked him for months... And by the way, Charlotte just had its first riot like those big cities, so suck on that "don't get me started on the arts guy", Charlotte in da houuuuse! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    [emoji3]I would like to think not, but they were uncharacteristically quiet about what happened. I have no idea what form of biology or chemical that slime is made of, but I do know it was remarkably stubborn to remove. Took some serious chiseling with a putty knife. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Same experience, left an orange tinted moisture mark. Although painting might work, with the havoc the kids have unleashed on the rest of the house, burning it down might be the more expedient option. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So seems like I discover new insects in NC every year, and every year seems to be creepier than the last. First time running across one of these, and this year I found two on the kids playset. At first glance thought it was horrific bee of some sort. Some googling got me to the right answer. Cicada exoskeleton. A Harmless (and enormous) bug that's existence is offensive on every level.

  16. Absolutely. Pros/cons and also alternative methods for solving the problem the tool was intended (which is when I actually learn something). Was not disappointed on either front with the responses! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Thanks for the suggestions, I hadn't heard of these other tools. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Gimmick or useful? What attracts me is making it easier to scrape glue from inside corners. http://www.woodpeck.com/mini-scraper-wd.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Thanks again, all good info to consider for my next sled! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Thanks for taking the time to post the pictures and detailed description! Pretty cool solution for adjustment with the t-bolts. Do the fences ever need re adjusted? Or is the t-bolts just a alternate way to secure the fence to the bed vs screws? Is the bed 1/2" BB+1/4" BB to create the zero clearance feature? Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Do you use a quality miter gauge instead? Totally with you and everyone else who mentioned the aggravation of storage, in my little shop I found a decent solution in the outfeed table. I also store a ply TS cover in the same place (suspended in a channel up top). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. This is one of the most used tools in my beginner shop to the point that I think I'd like to upgrade from the basic model that I copied from Marc's video. I was thinking about modeling mine after Nick Ferry's but I'd modify to have a replaceable zero clearance insert. At any rate, I'd love to see what others have made and any thoughts on improving the basic form of the tool and any favorite designs out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Congrats! My 14.5 yo vizsla is a champion (obviously earned in his younger years) shown by the breeder I bought him from. While I was just an owner willing to lend his dog out for shows on the weekend, I have an appreciation for the dedication and what a big deal it is to earn show success. Awesome dude!

    any juicers?

    I'm using the "my fitness pal" app. It turns that feeling of guilt into math that keeps a daily score on how you are doing in the daily "game" of weight loss. I know it sounds stupid, but seeing the numbers makes me get all crazy competitive about "winning" the game. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ha, I increased the exercise a couple months back but the weight loss plateaued for the last month. I finally admitted to myself the extra 600 calories of bourbon a night might have something to do with it. Thanks for the spelling correction, calorie deficit = dizzy mind, and not in the fun, bourbon sort of way.

    I've been trying to kick the health thing up a notch, but with juicing you are way ahead of me! My biggest health change lately is giving liqueur a break and counting calories. Actually the latter led to the former [emoji6]. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
