  • The Nun and the Machine

    A Nun Was Sitting At The Airport, Waiting For Her
    Flight To Chicago. She Looked Over In The Corner And Saw One Of
    Those Weight Machines That Tells Your Fortune And Thought To Herself,
    "i'll Give It A Try And See What It Tells Me."

    She Went Over To The Machine, Stepped Up On The
    Scale And Put Her Nickel In. Out Came A Card That Read, "you Are A
    Nun, You Weigh 128 Lbs, And You Are Going To Chicago."

    The Nun Sat Back Down. She Told Herself That The
    Machine Probably Gives The Same Card To Everyone. The More She
    Thought About It, The More Curious She Got, So She Decided To Try It Again.
    She Went Back To The Machine And Again Put Her Nickel In, And Out Came
    A Card That Read,"you Are A Nun, You Weigh 128 Lbs, You Are Going To
    Chicago And You Are Going To Play A Fiddle."

    The Nun Says To Herself, "i Know That Is Wrong, I
    Have Never Played A Musical Instrument Even Once In My Life." She
    Sat Back Down. From Out Of Nowhere A Cowboy Came Over And Sat Down,
    Putting His Fiddle Case In The Seat Between Them. Without Thinking, She
    Opened The Cowboy's Case, Took Out The Fiddle, And Started Playing Beautiful
    Music. Surprised At What She Had Done, She Looked Over At The Machine,
    Thinking, "this Is Incredible, I've Got To Try This Again."

    Back To The Machine She Went, Put In Another Nickel, And Another
    Card Came Out. It Read, "you Are A Nun, You Weigh 128
    Lbs, You Are Going Chicago And You Are Going To Break Wind."

    Now She Knows The Machine Is Wrong, As She Thought
    To Herself, "i've Never Broken Wind In Public A Single Time In My
    But Getting Down Off The Machine She Slipped, And
    As She Was Straining To Keep Herself From Falling To The Floor, She
    Broke Wind.

    Absolutely Stunned, She Sat Back Down And Looked
    At The Machine. She Said To Herself, This Is Truly Remarkable! I
    Have Got To Try This Again. "

    She Went Back To The Machine, Put In Another
    Nickel, And Another Card Came Out. It Read, "you Are A Nun, You
    Weigh 128 Lbs, You Have Fiddled And Farted Around And Missed Your Flight
    To Chicago."

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

    Reply to Question about tilting head saws
    by Bill Wilson
    I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

    Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

    And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

    Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

    I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
