  • I have to share this...

    I was viewing Charlie's taking the day off post and when I saw the picture of the boat with the big guns......I had to show you mine...

    This is our old boat, we were fishing the river for salmon in Old Town Sacramento on Halloween..
    I built this harpoon gun out of cardboard and it had quite an affect with a CO2 fire extinguisher...

    The "Battle Tracker"

    we also have a big family get together at the lake Easter weekend..
    one year I did the"Bunny Boat"....

    That sure was a good old boat, I got 12 good years out of her...

      You went for a pattern of the pick-up with the cab instead of the Bunny-boat?

      Man, that sucks!

      Power to the Bunny-boat!!!

      BTW, I really like the harpoon gun too, you are an ingenious one.

          I think bunny ears should be compulsory to disguise antennae on all boats.

          The world would be a much more peaceful place if battleships had bunny ears.

            the battle tracker would turn some heads on the coast guard down here if you ran it near the submarine base.....

              Just Wondering...

              Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

              With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

              I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

              Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

              I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

              If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

              Hi Linda, great find...I think.

              Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
