    Greetings, Have been scrolling for about 5 years. I am a transplanted Minnesotan now living near Tulsa via St Louis. Six more til retirment then back to Gods country. I posted a few of my projects several weeks ago but got busy and was not able to do any more posting. Lots of great projects and patterns out there but so little time. Hopefully this winter I can get busy again.

      Actually I was stationed up there twice in 4 years. Minot wasn't so bad.

        hi John, from your comments I take it you were in the Air Force, I never had the pleasure of being stationed at Minot spent most of my 20 yrs at Langley

            Welcome. I listen to the Prairie Home Companion out of Minessota every Sunday while I truck around Ohio. Sounds like a great state full of Norwegians. Is that true, or are they just making fun of themselves? OH..and do they really have a giant bass with a man inside that makes it move and talk to you ?

                I spent a couple of Februarys In Minot during my 11 years of AF. I remember the "Snert" coming from Canada with a wind chill of minus 80
                That certainly was an experience I won't forget. But the girls, ah the girls

                Snert is a mixture of snow and dirt from the fields blowing ata high rate of speed.

                  Langley has some of the worst winters I ever experienced, I worked the flightline on jets and when those northerns came down it sure made life miserable out in the open winds gusting to 25mph plus with driving rain sleet the snow brrrrrrrrr

                    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...
