  • Info on Sharon's Health

    This is Tony, Sharon's son.First of all, I want to thank all of you that have been helping her in so many ways that you could never understand. Your kind words, your support, and warm wishes are very much appreciated by myself and my mom. She was SO excited when she received your packages in the mail.
    She has recently been ill as I'm sure you all know.A few weeks ago she had some breathing and heart problems that got her a week in ICU. She then came home and all seemed fine for a couple days. Thursday afternoon she was complaining of weakness, pain, and nausea. Now if you couldn't tell, mom's a tough little bean and she deals with pain fairly well but around 2 p.m. she asked me to call an ambulance. She is now, again, in ICU at a local hospital. Apparently the problems were due to the fact that at some point in time her kidneys have stopped functioning. The doctors have had her on a dialysis machine with a catheter in her leg and it seems to be helping quite a bit. They have her scheduled for an MRI as soon as she is more stable.
    Through all of this, one of her first requests was that I contact you guys and let you know what's going on and why she hasn't been on in a while. She misses the board and her friends and hopes to be back home soon. The kidney specialist estimated her time in the hospital to 2-3 more weeks, but she's surprised us all before. So if you would, continue to show your support and keep her in your prayers.Again you have no idea what you mean to her and I thank you all for being there.
    If you have any questions or anything you can contact me at TCNN06 @

    Thoughts & prayers

    I'm pretty new here and don't know your mother well, but I recall reading about the effort by several members to send her a care package and I thought that was a wonderful testimony to not only the compassion of the folks on this site, but also to the character of your mother, that she would inspire such compassion in relative strangers.

    I hope Sharon bounces back quickly and I'll keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

        Sharon is a lovely lady and it's heart-breaking that she's having to endure these health problems. Thank you ever so much for telling us what's happening - it's reassuring to know that she's being looked after properly.

                  Thank-you for the update.

                  Not having heard from her, I was going to try and call her to see if she was ok. It saddens me very much to find out she isn't.

                  It would be nice if you could print this thread and bring it to her, might perk her up :

                  We love you and miss you. Please get well soon!
                  (we want to see what you're going to do to those boards)

                  My prayers are with you.

                                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
