    Just stay with it and keep your head high - you'll get it done .For when I started I had no idea that it would become my main hobby either . I was and have made alot of bigger items until I finally started making the small crafts and them the whole thing blew up for me ............Good luck ............MB

            Just think...if you would have started using that saw in 2006 when she REALLY wanted you to make her something with it, you wouldnt be rushing now to get this piece done!! I can say though, I am guilty too of getting a new tool and then things come up and I never get around to taking it out of the box ( my Guinivere sanding system is just one example), so I know where your coming from there.
            And heres one to mention to your wife... Dale wants a new Jet mini lathe since you mentioned "The wife loves tools. I have to be careful about my comments to her concerning tools, or the next Birthday/Christmas/etc..... There it is. " Mybe she will buy me some new tools!!!
            Welcome aboard !

              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

              Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

              As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
