  • Sad News!

    I will be off for a little while. My wife, Corinna, of 27 years passed away suddenly this morning in her sleep. The coroner couldn't find any cause. Hopes to give us some answers by tomorrow. Will be back on after I go make all the arrangements.

    That is one of the ultimate losses, brother, and I feel for you. I lost my first wife to cancer 10 years ago.

    Right now you've got to be in shock, and I hope friends and family are looking out for you.

    PM me if you ever have questions about how you're reacting.

    May God rest your wife.

    All the best,

                      I am very sorry for your loss. I am still very fortunate to have my wife for 42 years. Don't know what I would do without her.

                                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.
