    I sat down today and planned my route out to East Petersburg. Looks like about 6 1/2 hours and 318 miles. I hope many of our members here can make it as I look forward to meeting a lot of you folks in person. I also hope the dates don't change....AGAIN....my calander is beginning to look like a game of X's and O's!! LOL!!
    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

        Unfortunately I can't make it this year.
        The next one, you can count me in.
        I will have new shoes by then and if I start walking early I should meet the deadline.

          On the road again ...

          Good to know. I have the dates written in pen, which as we all know means nothing more than they need white out to alter.

          Unlike Neal, I have yet to figure out how I will actually get there but well, tank up the truck and head south is always a start when you live in Canada.

          I look forward to meeting folks from the forum and the faces of the Fox Chapel team. Also, definately want a signed copy of Neal's new book for my scroll saw library.

            Jeez--
            Sometimes I wish these things were held in the middle of the country. Even that would be along way from where I live. Traveling from here (Texas) to(where was that place, East Pignuckle?) there is about the same distance as from here to Honduras. Oh well, I wish you all the best and maybe if I win the lottery, or a seat on a Greyhound, I will attend one of these thingies some day.

              But if you're going to have a party, wouldn't you want to hold it at your house....I know there is going to be a scroll saw picnic in Alabama and Wisconsin this year--that's not quite as far a drive...

                Drive? Do people still do that? Kidding. I agree that most people would rather give a party in their own neighborhood, but what if you gave a party/picnic and no one came? I'm just venting. Alabama is 650 miles from here--I know, I was stationed in Montgomery with the USAF. Of course, there are always folks who live farther away than I do. The gang in New Zealand, Gill, some of the Canadians, etc, so I suppose I shouldn't gripe, but i will, I will. Moan, moan, grump, grump.

                  Having a "Field of Dreams" moment--Build it and they will come...

                  Or a Wayne's World 2 Moment "Book them and they will come"

                  A Fox Chapel moment "(Scroll it / Carve it / Burn it) and they will come...

                          I didn't get it until I read your post, Neal...

                          An Alladin moment...I'll have to remember that...

                          Now all my coworkers are looking over my cubical walls wondering why I'm laughing so hard...how do I explain it and keep a modicum of dignity...

                              I'm (almost) ashamed of that post, Dale. It's a joke which is innocuous enough until you realize what it's about. Unfortunately, there's no way to explain it in polite society.

                              Keep thinking about the logic of Bob's post:

                              a "Field of Dreams" moment - Build it and he will come...
                              a "Wayne's World 2" moment - Book them and they will come...

                              What did Aladdin do along the same lines? Now consider the double entendre !

                                One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                                That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                                I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                                Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
