    After looking over Pedros site and seeing he is using Sketchup, I downloaded a copy.
    Is anyone else out there using Sketchup...

    O.K. Carl, no wisecracks, just a few questions. What is it? What all does it do? What do you think about it?

      The commercial version is rather pricey but there's a free lightweight (and legitimate ! ) version here.

      The folks over on the UK Workshop forum have a whole section dedicated to its use, if anyone's interested.

        Sketchup is a 3D rendering program.
        It allows manipulation on all dimensions.
        I am pretty sure Pedro must use the full version.
        He is meticulous with his work and wouldn't settle for anything less than perfect. That is a trait I could use!

          I downloaded Sketchup and played with it, when I desided to learn how use it, it said my time had run out. Couldn't open it again, so I deleted it.

            Bob,
            Did you down load the free version?
            The free version Google Sketchup doesn't expire and has everything a person needs, unless your into major designing and such.

              Paul,
              Now I'm not sure what I downloaded.
              Does anybody have the link to the free one?

                I am not sure how useful it will be for making patterns but it is fun to play with

                    After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                    At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                    I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                    Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
