    Thanks Coop, yeah just start and stop marks on the fence and on the board, I use my dado stack both ways that you have shown with no problems whatsoever

    I don’t know if this applies but might help, I do this all the time with no sacrificial fence, also use the mitre gauge and sled with no problem

    Not sure what you mean Coop, isn’t it done that way all the time or am I missing something?
  4. Great idea Chet and I have some 3/16” brass rod too, just didn’t think of if, next time, thanks for the idea
  5. Here ya go @Chet, I did the first ones like this after I forgot to dado the sides and liked the simplicity of the install, basically cut the divider to the exact width, clamp in place with a couple of scrap blocks to secure it, 1/4” hole, 3/4” deep and 1/4” dowels glued in place top and bottom sanded flush, easy, quick and there is no load to speak of so it works just great in this application
  6. Thanks I do too, I have 2 son’s in law that collect watches so there may be another one in the near future
  7. Thanks Ross, outsource to a local shop that I’ve been using for years

    Hearing Aids

    I don’t know why some people don’t like them, my 9 year old granddaughter says papa you have your hearing aids in! And says I love you papa, I would never want to miss that

    Hearing Aids

    They are not ineffective at all but they do have limits like in a crowd, noisy restaurants and so on, I wear mine in the house all the time and they really help, I remember when I got them, I heard birds for the first time in years, it’s like glasses for me if you need them and they help get them no embarrassment for me just a fact
  13. Looks great Ross, I bet Cory can’t wait to load it up, it’s been a great ride

    We should open a thread for us “old timers” to give tips to the folks who haven’t been married as long as us, like when she comes home from the salon with a purple Mohawk, how to look at her straight in the eye and say I love it, without laughing, and never criticize her driving when she can hear you and on and on…..

    Hearing Aids

    I’ve had. One for about 10 years @Coop I only wear them when watching TV or working in the house, in the car with the windows open sounds like a hurricane, noise in restaurants is awful and I turn them off when inside such places, shoot me a PM or phone and I’ll fill you in some more
