        Great story, talented guy. It is always nice to get good press for the hobby and also for the magazine.

                  Good to see 788 in the news. Miss his pearls of wisdom around here--but understand he has other things going on.

                  For the rest of you, if you want to cut a medium to difficult piece, grab one of Dale's ornament designs and start cutting. They will drive you nuts at the saw, but there is a great feeling of accomplishment when you get done.

                            Well, I doubt Dale will see all the congrats in this thread as someone in Fox Chapel, who's initials are BobD, has Dale working so much he can't visit us much anymore!!! I met Dale & Linda at the last Fox Chapel Open house (hint hint - time for another one) and attended some seminars together. They are both fantastic people. So Dale, even though you probably won't see this - WELL DESERVED PRAISE!!

                              Wow, thanks you all for the great comments. It only figgers huh? That Shannon would have to go and post my ugly newspaper picture in here!!! She will pay dearly for that stunt!!!
                              Actually though, other than a couple odd things the reporter put in the article I was pretty pleased with it. I mean... in my "inner sanctum of my basement?" LOL, or my "beefy hands" ?? Really though, I think they did an awesome job on the article. i do wish I could have proofed the article before they published it, the twin tigers clock in the article is actually a design by Sue Mey, so any credit for that design must be directed to her. Funny thing, in the newspaper that clock looked like a mantle clock, it looked huge, when actually it is tiny, with a 1-7/16" clock insert! I am not sure how they chose the pictures they used, they took probably 100 photos of about 30 projects I showed them. Thanks again for the great comments (even you Betty!!!)

                                Perhaps, we could hear from Fox. Maybe they could try some things and see if it makes things better. Or, they can just keep doing the things the same way.

                                This is a case were the publisher can't win.

                                I personally like the patterns to be printed at the artist's intended size if at all possible. Let me decide to reduce or enlarge. If I don't have the equipment to make a copy at 100%, that's my problem not the publishers. We all have our own...

                                The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                                I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                                IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
