    Deadline's past, I found what I was sure was the fox, but it wasn't and they still won't tell where it is.

          The fox

          I have to admit one thing, if the function of the fox was to get readers to read the entire magazine it has certainly done its job.
          I am usually pretty good at finding these things but I am baffled this time.
          Foxes are sly creatures that poke their heads out only when they want to be seen. I think mine is having a nap in his den, maybe curled up next to a vixen.

            OK, OK, OK...

            Since the next issue is at the printers--and the next issue is announcing the location of the fox--and the deadline to enter the contest for the Fall issue is passed...I can give you all a little hint.

            Look in the article "Layered and Burned Squirrel Clock"

            DO NOT SEND ME ENTRIES ON THIS ONE!!!! I already get enough e-mail <grin>

              Thanks Bob

              Once I saw it I dropped the magazine in frustration.
              Oh Well Hats off to all those who found it on their own.

                I wanted so bad to offer hints but I am holding out for the prize. My hint would have been "Find the Fox or get burned", thank God for my trusty shop helper for finding the little bugger as I too was getting pretty upset.

                BTW, Bob when I get my info can I get my SSW sent to Iraq?

                      Since I still can't find him, I'll just have the "Sour Grapes" attitude - I didn't want to win anyway!

                          Well, my girlfriend finally found it. It took a magnifying glass. Better change my subscription to the LARGE print, large picture version.

                              Completely off topic, but the original fable by Aesop from which we get the phrase sour grapes was about a fox. He wanted to eat some luscious grapes that were hanging overhead but no matter how he tried, he couldn't jump high enough to reach them. In the end he gave up and walked off, muttering, "I didn't really want those grapes. I bet they were sour anyway".

                              It seems kinda appropriate .

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                                The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
