  • definition of an excuse

    Each day I look for a lesson, and in many cases it is the children that teach me something.... today it was an elder. Some of you may know who but I will keep her identity secret. Here is what I learned today....

    An excuse is nothing more than an explaination to justify your actions or lack of action.

    The guilty party beside right now, pleads "no contest" and has taken the therapists look with me. Appears somewhat flustered and admits guilt. Giggle.

    So, guess I should get back to work ....

    Other people have excuses.
    I have reasons.

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

      If I am wrong I will be the first to admit it. You might have to hit me on the head a few times to convince me I am wrong, but once I know I will say I am sorry.
      Saying sorry doesnt cost anything as long as it is sincere.

      As for Gills comments, I had a teacher from Manchester once he gave me two pieces of advice.
      There are no excuses only reasons.

        It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

        I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

        This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

        What a morning. The therapists were quite pleased with what he could do. He took the wrap off today and he can walk with the walker with very little pain. It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...

        If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

        I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
