    You must be wrong. China is paying for the tariffs
  2. Sorry,too late ! I just put a coat of finish on it. I will post a photo of the finished box. It's one of Lois Keener Ventura's designs.
  3. Winter is the hardest time for me to get into the shop, mainly because it has no central heating. I do have a small wood stove that can be used if I have to. Lately I've had some time to do a bit of organizing and I've gathered a few scraps of wood to make a bandsaw box. It's ready for some finishing now.

    Job Innerview

    Wishing you the best of luck Artie. The time saved driving in itself is worth the change in jobs.
  5. Watched the Oklahoma /Texas game today. Thought the Texas quarterback made a lot of poor decisions in his passing game . Now watching USC/Notre Dame game.
  6. The really smart addition is is the pencil holder. How many times have we spent looking for the pencil we just used ?
  7. We all have budgets and needs to consider. As a hobbiest and handyman, my 10" Jet contractors saw with biesmeyer fence has served me well for several years.
  8. I just store the fence on the BS table. If using the BS without using the fence, I just turn. to place the fence on the TS.
  9. Guess I learned something today. The term memes is new to me.
  10. i have no idea what you're talking about. Guess my computer illiteracy is showing.
  11. You're no outcast John. Call it yankee ingenuity ! You found another use for a chuck key that otherwise would serve no purpose for days at a time. Now it is used daily. Why spend money for another bolt?
  12. John, I believe we all whole-heartedly agree with what Artie said. You've gotten a number of woodworkers together for a cause that benefits the families of veterans in need of assistance, and at the same time gotten people together who have a common interest in woodworking. The conversations here are always friendly. Yes, we do stray off topic at times, but it is never done with any mal-intent. I doubt it will totally end, but being aware it creates more work for you and all the other hosts, I think there will be more effort to minimize responses to off topic remarks which is really what causes the extended wandering from the topic. I know that at times the original topic is totally lost after of an off topic post. Sometimes our sense of humor gets in the way, but an occasional laugh is good for all of us without over doing it. Thanks for all that you've done here.
  13. OK Gene I'll try harder to stay sober. See, I'm doing it again. So easy to get off track.
