    Have you made your Christmas cake yet?...

    if not here is a useful recipe that I hope will help you with your Christmas cake and celebrations.

    You may have already seen this but it is worth seeing again as we all get stressed out!!!!

    CHRISTMAS CAKE RECIPE.
    (a British tradition)

    Ingredients:
    * 2 cups flour
    * 1 stick butter
    * 1 cup of water
    * 1 tsp baking soda
    * 1 cup of sugar
    * 1 tsp salt
    * 1 cup of brown sugar
    * Lemon juice
    * 4 large eggs
    * Nuts
    * 2 bottles wine
    * 2 cups of dried fruit

    Sample the wine to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the wine again. To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the wine is still OK. Try another cup... Just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

    Pick the frigging fruit up off floor. Mix on the turner.. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the wine to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Check the wine. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or some fink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the wine and wipe counter with the cat.

    Go to Bakery and buy cake.

          Stop at the liquor store to replace the wine!

          There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

            Just Wondering...

            Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

            With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

            I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer.

            Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

            I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

            If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...
