      looking for a fix...

      I was over on the MSN free site and came across a pattern I wouldn't mind doing. I tried printing it but I guess it was to big for my printer and I only got half.
      so what's the trick for those free patterns?

        Possible solutions

        Hmmm,

        Don't you have an option on your printer that says "fit to a page"?

        It should reduce the size so it prints on one page.

        Or you can try and resize the image with some imaging software.

        I'm sure a guy feeling withdrawal will find a solution

          Depending on the program you are using to print with there are different ways. I use Adobe Photoshop CS2. With that you can go into a print preview and select one half of the pattern, then repeat the process and select the other half. Don't forget to leave some overlap on each side to help line everything up. Most people seem to use PSP, so hopefully somebody can give you the 'How To' on that one.

            I saved it and then that gave me more printer options so I printed it as a landscape which did the trick...

            I found a pattern of a 34 Frod Truck...
            that should hold me over until I get some more wood. I gave my first steelhead trout away so I think it's time I make one for our wall...

            thanks again

              because the 8 1/2 X 11 is a little small and the truck doesn't fit that fully eather...

              Thanks Jim

                  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.
