  1. It has been pointed out to me by my grand daughter's mom, who is my oldest daughter, that my grand daughter isn't ten years old she just turned nine. My mistake
  2. Especially if you own a home. I bought my first truck a couple of months after our first house and like Ross I haven't been with out one since. I don't know how home owners do it with out a truck.
  3. If these are paying customer projects and you have your pricing so tight that you haven't allowed for material transportation, which should be part of your overhead figures in your estimate for the client, then you are most likely short changing yourself all the way around in your quotes.
  4. I don't think you are trying hard enough.
  5. Welcome to the forums Andrew.
  6. The way I avoid the shim crap is I set the stack as close to the thickness needed as possible without being to wide and then make light passes of the shelf or panel through the drum sander for the fit. Of course this only works if you have a drum sander.
  7. All four have been in the shop and worked on small projects. She is the only one that has shown interest in continuing the hobby. They all have things they pursue and are good at as far as hobbies go. And I am glad to say none of the hobbies include being glued to video games.
  8. It was signed by both of us before she sprayed the finish. I only signed after asking her if she wanted me to. I signed Paga, which is what the grandkids call me. You can see the signatures in the first picture of her spraying. We would have to talk about the safety of using that too, like don't us it on your older brother.
  9. I am not saying this because she is my grand daughter but she is a very focused person. She has more focus on going after something she wants to do then a lot of adults I know.
  10. I was too, I went ahead and re-ordered another one. I just posted here to see if there was something way superior out there.
  11. I will pass it along Ross. It will probable get a good giggle out of her.
  12. I meant to post this, I kept track of her time on this - including time at the lumber yard and clean up at the end of each day she was right at 45 hours.
  13. Okay, the last day started off by attaching the figure 8's to the base. Then center punching for the screw hole in the top. Then drilling and pre-threading the holes in the top. A final vacuuming of the parts before finishing. This next step is were she really left me impressed. I thought this is were she would have some struggles but after practicing the spray process on some spare plywood. I was real amazed at the job she did on the actual top. She was just a little nervous and asked me to spray the base. Spraying the bottom of the top.
  14. Well my real cool wife just bought this for me for my birthday. I have been looking at ideas for drilling in the center of small parts for some project ideas and I think this looks like it might work better then other things was looking at. Drew, my wife says Thank You, because she had no idea as to what to get me.
  15. That is a great day for the two of you for sure.
  16. Just to share with you Ross, the tiles from Rubber Flooring Inc are light years better then most of the other interlocking floors. They are a pure joy to work on all day. But they probably cost more then the Harbor Freight type tiles.
  17. Watching Rockler's video, I was never really impressed with the old still that he shows in the beginning but I can picture some good uses for the Rockler model. It looks like a real quality unit. I might be putting this on the list. If they changed the blue anodized aluminum to red they could double the price.
  18. I haven't had any kind of tripping problem at all with mine. They sweep up pretty well and vacuum even better. If you are thinking go doing the whole garage floor you might want t olook at their rolls, I think that is a lower price per square foot.
  19. I have had these 8mm strong rubber tile down for over a year and wish I had done it years ago. I can work in the shop all day and not feel wore out. You can get it in locking tiles or custom cut rolls.
  20. Welcome to the forums Luke, glad to have you join us.

    We'll be there in late September, looking forward to it.
  22. As a matter of fact, today I did. I actually vacuumed, getting ready to spray the finish.
