      Thanks!

      Thanks for all the advice and encouragement, everyone!

      Thanks Mike and John B for the tips about dressing it up a little. I like both ideas and will see which one works best for me.

      Probably the best advice I got was from the "**** Yankee", mdvt. It deeply pains me to say that a Yankee fan had anything good to say! But, you are right. I think I was trying to be as fast as the guys in the scrolling videos I've watched. I'll slow it down a little until I get the feel for it.

      And sawdustus, that sounds like great advice. I will try it. I need all the help I can get cutting straight lines. I never would have guessed before I started how hard cutting a straight line could be!

      I have to say one more time...what a great forum. So many helpful people!

        Go Twins!

        A little (lot) off topic, but since a lot of you are baseball fans, I have to talk a little trash...

        Hey f250 and Sandy Oaks! The Twins fans outnumber everyone else (at least in this thread) Go Twins!!!!

        Randy, North Dakota boy Roger Maris is still the all time homerun king in my book! It's just to bad he did it in Yankee pinstripes!
        And, it's a crime that he isn't in the Hall of Fame!!!!!!

          Schmidty,
          One thing I forgot, to go along with the "slow down" approach. Make sure the tension on your blades is tight. A "wobbly" blade will lead you astray.
          Oh and by the way all remember what this man said.....a Yankee fan had the best advice!! LOL

            Yeah Schmidty, I agree Maris should be in the hall of fame! My neighbor pitched against him when they both played American Legion ball. He said Roger hit one that probably hasn't come down yet!

                  Schmidty,

                    Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                    Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                    Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                    HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
