  4. YES - I need some home improvement

    Amazing thing about this "exercise" - NOTHING damaged inside. This house was built in 1910 and used real 2 By material. Was told that if our house was built in the '60s, it would have taken out the entire corner of the house (an then some). es, we were very fortunate, indeed.

  6. YES - I need some home improvement

The contractor we are going to deal with says that they will interface with the mortgage company and the insurance company and all permits that will be required. Now it's just waiting on City permits and inspections - yuck... Thanks guys for all your thoughts and good wishes. Ifn ya don't see me on here much for a while you will know why. CIAO
  7. If ya got some time, got some pictures of what Hurricane IRMA did to our house. Think we need some home improvement? Still no power. Send this from a friend's house. Needless to say, we will be out of pocket for a while. NO, no one was hurt and we are living in our travel trailer with borrowed power from our next door neighbors. Fred's new look

  10. Scroll Saw Table Refinishing

    Hmmmmmmm - would certainly be a good way out - - - - Dave, I was thinking purple or orange Dan - was thinking the same thing - after "much" thought, I was thinking the same thing (or similar)
  11. Scroll Saw Table Refinishing

    Larry - "Do you top feed or bottom feed?" - I feed from the top DAB - "surely your blade color is not the same as your wood color?" - When I'm IN the wood there is no problem - it's getting started - fingers will be safe Dan - "Glue on a piece of Formica." - I just might give it a try Thanks all for the info

  14. Scroll Saw Table Refinishing

    I have had my Excaliber 21 for some time now and LOVE it. I love it so much that I have worn the "paint" right off the top near the blade opening. Now, the color of the bale matches the color of the blades. Makes it really tough to see the blade entry. I have tried paper, zero-clearance 1/4" plywood, coloring the blade with no results. OH, most learned members, how can I fix this problem. Short of taking it somewhere to have it ground down, polished and poder coated, does anyone have a real solution? Will be most anxiously awaiting your responses. fred
  15. 2017 Total Eclipse, August 21st

    To get back to the original subject - we visited friends in Mountain City, GA and experienced the total eclipse. Kind of eery starting about 90% - colors changed and temp started to drop. Then the "total" with everyone around cheering - and then the sun came back out and we went back to doing what ever it was that we were doing. Did manage a couple of neat photos though. (As if we all needed more pix)
