    Ten Dollars
    ============

    Fred and his wife Edna went to the state fair every year.
    Every year Fred would say, "Edna, I'd like to ride in that there airplane." And every year Edna would say, "I know Fred, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

    One year Fred and Edna went to the fair and Fred said, "Edna, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance."

    Edna replied, "Fred that there airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

    The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you, but if you say one word it's ten dollars."

    Fred and Edna agree and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard.
    He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word.

    They land and the pilot turns to Fred, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."

    Fred replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Edna fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."

    Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

    There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

    As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

    I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

    John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

    Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

    I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
