  • Hello again...

    Hello all, its been a long time. I will try to keep it short even tho its a long story.

    I was to close on a house on Aug. 25th. I was so excited and ready to move and set up my new workshop. Well three days before I was to close I got let go from my job because they are going to outsource my department. So therefore I did not get the house and I was out of a job.

    I posted my resume on monster and the very next day I started getting calls. Two weeks later I landed a great job(at least so far) making more money and it is even fun to boot. I also found another house which is only ten mins. away from my new job and much nicer than the house I was going to get. Keep your fingers crossed but I am to close on Oct 30 and to make things even better me and my girlfriend are going to get back together. So all things happen for a reason even tho you don't know the reason when they first happen. Everything works out in the end.

    That is why I have not been around for a while(not that anybody missed me...LOL)

    So thats the short version of a very long story. I hope to be on more and cutting more once I get settled in my new place. Like I said keep your fingers crossed, I need all the help I can get.

    Talk to you all again soon.

    Good for you!

    Almost 4 years ago something similar happened to me: I had been sick and when I returned to work they "cut" my position due to budget restrictions.

    They did give me a 3 month "package"

    I had bought a house (my first one) the year before, and was wondering how I would not go bankrupt.

    3 weeks later, I posted my CV on and got a call two days later from a headhunter looking for my exact qualifications. Did three phone interviews and got a new job with a 50% (yes FIFTY) better salary doing the exact same thing as before. And since last March I now get to work from home on top of that; doesn't get much better than that.

    I've been laughing since then, and thanking God for my good fortune.

        How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

        The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
        Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
