  • 1000

    Carl's just told me that he's not going to bed until I make my 1000th post. So, in order to save his marriage, here's my address to the forum on this auspicious occasion:

    Nighty night, Carl!

    Logging onto this forum gives me a great buzz even after all these posts. You simply never know what amusement or enlightenment awaits you! I don't think I've ever encountered such special people on the internet as those who visit this forum. Highlights of my time here include spontaneous collections on behalf of less fortunate members, the recent Quilt project, Mentora, and these threads, which I find rather amusing:

    Isn't it striking how so many of my favorite events are in the here and now? We're in a golden age of scrolling; Bob and Shannon's deft influence is giving us the opportunity to develop our craft in ways that only access to the internet and rapid worldwide communications could have made possible. Although there are times when forum members may disagree strenuously, the ties that bind us together are stronger than the stresses that might drive us apart.

    It's great to be in a place which is so tolerant, friendly, educational and witty. Thank you all for indulging me so far, and here's to the next 1000 posts .

    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.

                      Awesome Gill. We enjoy your witty comments and sense of humor. We even learn something beneficial from you once in awhile. May the next 1000 be just as entertaining.

                                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                                of the extension is almost finished apart...

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
