  • I cant believe it

    I saw a commercial today and I still cant believe it. Some of you may remember the post about the guy who wont a lawsuit because he was injured using his table saw, even thought he failed to follow any safety precautions and removed safety devices. We'll now it sound like you can call this law office a file a calm if you have ever been injured using a table saw. Because the manufactures failed to install the saw stop device an there saws even though they knew it would or should or might stop injuries Well I'm not going to file a calm for be hurt on my table saw but I'm think about sue the state because I almost hit a Deer I was driving way to fast, with no headlight. The state knew there are there were deer and they cross the road in front of cars but they failed kill all of them off even thought they knew it would or might or should stop accidents. I guess we now can do any unsafe thing with our hand or power tools and then when we get hurt go after the people who made it.

    Yes the state should have known a deer would come out there at that particular spot and I'm sure they didn't have a deer warning sign there either.
    They should have put up a sign.

        A sign is not good enough, after all there are safety warning all over tables saw and the manuals tell you what and what not to do. Any and all hazards from must be removed that might cause us to be harmed. All types of transportation must be removed from the roads, water or air because they can crash and cause injury. All hand and power tools must be recalled due to safety hazards known or unknown. Any thing that is know to cause any kind of injury must be recalled until safe guards can be found to stop them. We must live in a completely safe world were there is nothing that can harm us. Or we could do as we have been doing and know that thing can hurt us if we forget about or take short cuts with saftey.

          This was an actual letter to the editor of our local paper. The name has been deleted to protect the foolish, I mean innocent!





          A lot of deer get hit by cars west of Crown Point on U.S. 231. There are too many cars to have the deer crossing here. The deer crossing sign needs to be moved to a road with less traffic.

          There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

              Well, you just can't fix stupid.

              Getting back to the deer....how do they train the deer to cross where the signs are?

                I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
