  • 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.

                              When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
                              Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                                Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                                The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                                Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with.

                                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
