  • Update on me...

    Here's a little update on me...

    My mom-in-law is still in intensive care in the hospital in very bad condition. She's on and off the machine to help her breath, she has an infection on her lungs now too...
    but the main problem is still her belly and she needs an 4 th surgery, wich the doctors will decide today if they can do it or not...
    She's too ill to do it, but there's not another we can loose her...
    We visit her every day , so lately I'm in the car, in the hospital and on the phone...beside working in the house and take care my girls...

    Then there is Eric, we are waiting for good news this week about a huge project, it's 90% sure he'll have the job, and then he'll be busy every day to place 196 kitchens before the end of februari, starting on 26 september.
    He'll work with a friend , I'll stay at home to do my housework and take care for the kids.
    And to work in my shop and have fun to make some sawdust! It will be busy to get the kids in school every day and to drive Eric at his job, he'll come home by train cuz at that time I would be in traffic for a few hours every day.
    I also still hope for a miracle so I could visit my mom-in-law every afternoon...

    I have a new desktop pc since last friday, have installed all my drawing programs so I can draw patterns again too...

    Take care...I miss you all!

      Hang in there Frieda - just take each day as it comes and try not to think too much of what might happen. I hope Eric gets his work confirmed. Please keep us informed

        Sure hope Eric gets the job. It will help take your minds off what has become a very difficult situation. My thoughts are with you.

            Frieke, almost every day I think about the saying that I've copied below, that appears with your signature:

            Don't let the pain of your past and the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present.

            It is wonderful and wise advice, and I hope it helps see you through this difficult time.

                Frieke - take good care of yourself during these difficult times. One step at a time. Like Carole suggests - try not to future trip too much. You are in our hearts.

                                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...
