    Cody and  I shoveled most of the remaining dirt into the crater left by grinding out that tree stump, and to various other low spots around the property. Hit it pretty hard yesterday, trying to eliminate as much of the pile as possible before today's rain set in. 

    Now I can't get Tennessee Ernie Ford out of my head. I like this version better.


    Man, that song takes me way back.  And I will pretty much listen to anything involving Billy Gibbons.

    Ross, any idea who the young girl playing bass is?  She was on stage with some pretty tall company there and holding her own.

    Just a very light graze against it will yield an instant, painful rash that can last for days.

    Been there done that.  When I was a boy scout we were on a back packing trip and I started losing my footing on a down hill stretch, I reached out to brake my fall and ended up grabbing a hand full of stinging nettle.  I couldn't close my hand for about five days.

  3. I would be willing to guess that Festool makes demands trying to get a bigger bite of a company's sales and when the company calls their bluff Festool pulls their stuff... for a while until they realize that they aren't going to get to bully their way and then bring their product back.  Just a guess.

    Back on topic, I don't know how I forgot to include this but our HOA runs a woodshop. In non-covid times I can go pay $16 or $20 and get access to a fully stocked woodworking shop complete with almost anything you could need. They even run classes there you can register for.

    Good way to really find out what tools you need for you personal work flow.

    Does that featherboard work well? And, does it only run in the miter slot?

    I will jump in here and give you my opinion.  I have the same feather board and really like it.  Yes it only fits in the miter slot.  I bought mine just to use on my band saw.  It is pretty adjustable though, you pull the black lever on top of the handle, this allows the feather board to slide back and forth in the black track on the bottom.  Simple release the lever, push it against the wood for the pressure you need to keep you work properly against the fence then lock the lever.

    Note to self...if you're not sawing shut the damn saw off

    I found that ear muffs can contribute to not turning the saw off.  Sometimes it is after I turn the DC off that I notice the saw is running.

    My two brake trips were when using the miter gauge at an angle which changes the proximity of the fence to the blade.:o  I still would rather have to replace a brake and blade over a digit.

    Hey Chet if you get a chance post a pic of your L Fence please.

    Sorry about the delay in your request Paul,  We just started a Kitchen Reno so I haven't been checking in here as much.

    Any questions let me know.

    During glue up i set the doors on the concrete floor and I wonder If i set them in an uneven spot that ended up gluing a twist into the doors

    I had something similar a while back.  Generally concrete and wood don't play nice together.  Aways back, a knowledgeable member here told me you can get a weird air and moister interaction between the wood and concrete.

    More to come but suffice it to say the layout measurements in the article are pretty much crap...never had that happen with FWW before

    I had that happen from a set of plans I purchased from them for the Gregory Paolini Arts & Crafts sideboard I built.  Dry fit right befere a pretty intense glue up I noticed something hinky.  I took a measurement on the piece, looked at the plans and the numbers matched but the piece wasn't going to fit (too big) so it was an easy fix but then down the road I found varying numbers on another part in the plans

    I built the same jig you are and I really like it especially with the "L" fence.  I built mine just looking at a picture I grabbed from a Pekovich video and came up with my own dimensions and numbers.
