  • Mike Moorlach in the news..3_m

    Our good friend Mike Moorlach of Mikes workshop. You know this guy almost all of us buy our Flying Dutchman blades from Mike.

    What you may not know, Mike has been busy since this past spring in his spare time cutting out Christmas ornaments to sell at a local flower and gift shop to raise money for his local food pantry. So far he has cut out 527 Yes, I said Five Hundred and twenty seven..

    Mike has contributed generously in the past to the food pantry and just in the past few days he has been recognized in the largest newspaper in South Dakota the Argus of Sioux Falls. Mike was very excited to have been written up and just had to call me and let me know. I did a quick internet search and here is a link to his article. He said he would send me a link but I have not gotten the e-mail yet.

      Good for Mike. A really nice man, and very deserving of the accolades. Unable to raise the article on the site listed.

                        Mike you are truly a great person. We are all good people at heart and can give back in so many ways but a great person does not talk about it. They just do it.

                              Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                                Linda,
                                Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                                There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                                Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                                In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
