  • Hello from a colonial Aussie

    G'day to everybody on the other side of the world. I reside on the western side of Australia, otherwise known as Western Australia. Have just built, and my shed just completed so I will soon be set-up and ready to learn a lot from all the woodies out there. I am a bit late on the introduction but the time difference threw me a bit. Anyway, here I am, 70 years young and going OK.

      Thanks JerryS, Which part of our lovely land are you from?. Not sure where DeLand is but am assuming Florida. Long way from home. I am really looking forward to getting back into doing some woodwork and scrolling as we have been caravanning for some time. nice talking to you.

                  Hi John B, Have been in Bunbury for about 12 months, but many moons ago was brought up in Yanmah/Manjimup. Departed and did 8 years in WRAAF among other things. I have a nephew (retired now) who did quite a stint in the Police Force, (TRG etc). Anyway, Kal's a nice spot if the heat doesn't get you. 16 years in Carnarvon & Geraldton cured me. Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

                    Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                    That is...

                    The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                    Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                    The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                    Now,...
