  • New but Old

    I would like to say to everyone that I really enjoy reading all the posts on that I can. I think you guys and gals do a great job with the site. The reason I don't post is because since I am new I don't know what I could add so I just read and try to learn from those who do know. I want to learn how to create patterns using GIMP but I am so dumb with a computer I get lost every time I try. I hope you understand what I am trying to say. just because I don't post doesn't mean I don't like being in your living room (shop). Thank you for all that you do to help old folks like me.

        You are welcome. I am somewhat of a puter numpty myself, so I'm unable to create my own patterns and find it very frustrating sometimes but we have wonderful, generous designers here who have always come to my aid when needed.

            I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

            New turning tools

            I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
            Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

            One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

            I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

            Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

            If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
