  1. Most of my work is highlighted by my laser engraver work, I am selling items like this so I can earn the capital to buy more tools to do fancier stuff.
  2. As I am trying to do that very thing this weekend, it requires a lot more skill, tools and patience than I has anticipated.
  3. Got asked to make these for a friend to give to her family. They love playing games out doors. I didn't even realize were a thing until I post them on Facebook.
  4. The questions are mainly those you ask yourself about if you can really afford that expensive one with the good reviews and will that one be the best one for what you need. Like I said I can looking for one that can be mounted into a pre-fab table for the short term until I can get me a table top built for it. I'll mainly be using it for boat paddles and some smaller frames, so what would be the lowest AMP and HP would I need to accomplish this the easiest? Reviews have steered me away from some cheaper ones, so I definitely read those.
  5. Hello again folks, so we are looking to add a new tool to the arsenal in the shop and I am going crazy searching for it. We are wanting a Router, we prefer one right now with a pre-fab table so we can start making our own paddles out of pine for our projects. However, the more I search the more questions I have and no one at Home Depot or Lowe's is any help, we don't really have many local hardware stores that I know of, if any. Can anyone here point me in the right direction?
  6. As usual, Lew to the rescue. Thank you sir.
  7. Does anyone here use a design program or anything to draw up plans for their work? I am wanting to build my own workbench and would like to draw up some plans for it.
  8. Lew found the exact ones I needed in the link he provided. Thanks kmealy.
  9. Lew, You are awesome sir. Thank you!!!
  10. It's on the inside of a drawer where the face drops done. I am guessing it was meant to be so you could hide your keyboard and mouse in the drawer and pull it out when you needed to use it. Basically the springs in the latch just wore out. I looked all over Rockler's site and found one of 2 latches I might be able to use, but I would really like to find new pieces and put it on. We got this desk second hand and there is some work I have to do on it to bring it back to it's previous glory, but it will all be worth it.
  11. Thank you Gentlemen, I will look into it.
  12. I am trying to repair my desk. I need 2 of these little "leaf spring locks" Or at least I think that's what these are called. I have looked in the local big box stores, but can't find them. Anyone have any ideas?
  13. Once I looked at it again, that makes total sense. I guess I wasn't looking at the different wood tones. Thank you.
  14. All of that makes sense, but since my wife just got me the table saw it will be a little while before I can afford to buy any new tools. My Dad suggested searching pawn shops for a good deal which I may try but with 3 daughters it's hard to find $$$ in the budget for anything that is not a necessity right now. Like I said before this project gives me a goal and a decent enough challenge to build towards until I can finish it. Thank you to EVERYONE for the suggestions and help. It's all going into the info file.
