                    I agree with Rolf he is just getting warmed up. I hope I can still be scrollin' at 81.

                    Way to go, Mike!!!

                                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
