    First Timer to Message Boards, not to wood working. I've got a 23X27 workshop that I built just for woodworking.(of course it needs to be bigger) I've been working with wood for about 7 yrs now. I do a lot of lathe work, which I love, but scrolling is right up there with it. Started out with a Delta saw but soon found the saw that works perfect for me, the DeWalt. It is a much better saw & that can be seen by the results of my projects.

    I really like challenging projects, which leads me to a question about the Marc Tovar Clock in the Spring 2007 Issue #26. Just wondering if anyone has completed this project, and if so, is there anything that needs to be adjusted from the patterns? (other than the noted updates to the plans that shows the drill hole sizes)

    Well, thats a little about me. I'll post some pics of some of my projects later on. Looking forward to exchanging ideas, problems and solutions with you all.

    Welcome Troy. Nice size workshop you have. Of course they are never large enough. Haven't tried the clock but someone else should be chiming in soon that has. Have you downloaded the update to the clock? Some parts were missing or rather didn't show up clearly on the original pattern.

        Hi Paul, I have downloaded the updates & it does clarify the drill size for which holes which the original patterns was not clear & also shows the brass tube size cut lengths that was left out of the original. I've allways wanted to build a grandfather clock & still plan to do it someday soon but when I seen this clock in this issue I became interested in it because of the open gears and all.

                        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.
