  1. sounds workable. to replicate what is is the picture, use an odd number of squares in your step 3, and an odd number of rows. (your drawing shows 6 squares x 8 rows, if you see what i am getting at. the picture looks like 7 x 7. comes out symmetrical along the edges with an odd number. if that is what you are shooting for.)

    Looked at 2 14" bandsaws this weekend

    i agree with Tom, the PC is half of brand new. ii have that saw. it is not a direct drive like minorhero says. induction motor and belt drive. actually a 2 speed so metal cutting is possible by changing the belt onto the other it a great saw? no. is it horrible? no. i came from a 3 wheel benchtop craftsman - so the upgrade bar was set low. i cut out a 3/4" piece of plywood to put in between the saw and the base which helped stiffen it up. needed longer bolts also. $225 might be a good price depending on how old it is. a year or 2 old i would be tempted to get it. i would imagine you could get 150 - 180 for it a year or two from now, if nothing is wrong with it. probably won't last long on clist

    palm router - Bosch Dewalt

    again, it seems like not much can be said bad about either tool. i think i will be happy with the dewalt, but the bosch would be just as good. just 2 good tools, and pick whatever small detail seems to tip the consensus in one direction or the other. thanks again for all the input!

    palm router - Bosch Dewalt

    seems like i can't go wrong with either one. thank you everyone for the input. i think i will flip a coin! (leaning towards the yellow fellow simply because there are more that have that, and that replied) don't think i can go wrong with either, that is what is making it a difficult decision. thanks again to all

    palm router - Bosch Dewalt

    thanks does seem to be a toss up. i probably can't go wrong with either. maybe i will base it on shipping arrival.

    Elevated Dog Food Station

    cool project i made a much "rougher" (read - construction lumber) one, when we had 2 greyhounds. (long legs) tall dogs can drink easier when the water is elevated. doesn't mean they can't when the bowl is on the ground, but a little easier when elevated. it does tend to "spray" the vittles and water 'cause it is up in the air!

    palm router - Bosch Dewalt

    really have a need for a palm router. (will be getting the plunge base kit for whatever one i pick) Colt or DW611 after looking through the past threads, have settled on one of the 2 in the title of this thread. they seem pretty comparable. not much difference in price to matter. anybody have experience with both? is it a coin flip between them? pick whatever color you like? do the LED lights in the Dewalt make a difference? not a router expert by any means, so is there anything that would make a big difference between the 2? will probably get an edge guide (in the future) for whatever i pick, i assume available for both. not agonizing over this but a little more info wouldn't hurt. don't have a strong feeling either way. thanks
  11. i"m with Tom King on how to power the boat. if the boat is rated at 400 hp. them put that on it. i have never heard anyone say - "i wish i had less hp on my boat" if you are married to 300 hp. then think about a single 300 hp. you would save about 400 #'s and have the same hp. maintenance costs would come down with a single, which is a yearly thing. big thing to think about. spend all the $$ on safety equipment! research where you are moving to, and find a "safe boating class". US Coast Guard Auxiliary does them in my part of the world. that "MAY" give you a discount on your insurance. take it anyway. it will make you a better boater. research SEATOW or TOW BOAT US - subscribe to what is available in that area. trust me on this. as far as the tools go - i would sell them. (the big tools) your description doesn't seem to be a great thing for going forward with a full-on woodworking space. you are buying a CC, which is a "fishing" boat. jump in with both feet!!!!! LOL

    D&W King Bed - Walnut & White Oak

    extraordinary! the wood is extra special!! the craftsmanship is at the top!! i am amazed, continually at the level of craftsmanship on this forum - it is a special place! (the "tips, tricks," that people have are worth the price of admission.) LOL the story behind the bed is worth saving - somehow?, -photo's, dialogue, you get what i am saying. the wrassler's would be thrilled with that 40 or so years from now, i am sure. very nice !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sharpening Guide For Knives

    i have that same "kit". i don't like it. long blades it is - okay,- shorter blades will test your patience such as a pocket knife - <4" blade had it for 7-8 years now, it does make blades sharp, but i don't feel it is very user friendly
