    Just wanted to say Hello to everyone in this community. I have been "lurking" in the internet shadows for some time now and I finally had to join up. I look forward to gaining more info over time to help me improve my sawing techniques, thus far what I have been reading certainly has. Catch you folks on the boards.

    BTW, the old adage about there never being a dumb question didn't take into account my existance...any and all help in the future is appreciated.

    Welcome!

    Don't worry, since I started at SSW, I 've asked my share of questions...most of them that fall in what I consider the dumb category...

      It is good to hear that I won't be the Lone Ranger in the dumb question department.

      With that here is the first question/dilema I am having. I have a bit of a knack for drawing Alaskan wildlife ala Native Alaskan style and honestly I am not facing any challenge cutting any of this yet. What I would like to do is find a source (books etc.) for more realistic depictions of Alaskan wildlife. What is a good source for patterns/readings that you might suggest I look for to improve my overly animated life?

          Welcome!
          I hope you ask a lot of "dumb" questions so we can all benefit from the answers. For the Alaska wildlife, try the Alaska Sketchbook series (maybe there are 5 of them) by Doug Lindstrom. If this isn't the right way to spell his name, maybe Amazon or whatever can correct me. I think his drawings are mostly excellent. Again, welcome. Sandy

            Thanks for the feedback Sandy, that is a source I haven't thought about yet, though I am quite familiar with his work (it is everywhere here in Alaska). Thanks again, Todd.

              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...
