        The angle is 9.46 degrees. But that's hard to mark. Instead, I just put in the measurements for the front and back of the legs and body. In both cases the front is just 1/8" shorter than the back. For the legs the back is 2 1/2" and the front is 2 3/8" (measured up from the feet). For the body the back is 2 1/8" and the front is 2" (measured down from the shoulders). The hinge goes on the front on the short sides of the legs and body. Hope this helps and have fun flipping!!!

              Just a guess but Fox Chapel sells two books from Bob Gilsdorf.

                  I was using my older Colewood Super pro II yesterday and I could not control the temperature. As soon as I turned it on the tip went to the max. I opened it up to have a look.

                  It seems that new members don't present themselves in the new members section. If anyone spots a new member encourage them to introduce themselves in the new member section.

                  I will send Kaylee a note to see who is overseeing the forum.

                  As you know, we lost a ton of folks during the time the board was being redone and a lot of them ended up at the Village and have never looked back.
                  As far as updates to the software, I am with Scott on having no clue. I do wish some of the old timers would check in from time to time, even...
