  • How do you stop looking for patterns?

    My god!

    I can't seem to stop printing, copying, scanning, buying, and even editing patterns. Replace an horse with a hummingbird, etc.

    So how do I stop playing with the patterns and get some scrolling done?

    I have done some scrolling, but I've been playing with the patterns allot more than actually scrolling them.

    Am I sick? Do I need a new drug? Is there a medial condition that has these symptoms?

        There is no cure.
        I have thousands of patterns, in fact I have over 1000 ornament patterns alone, and probably 10 gigabytes of scans and other patterns.
        I spend more time looking for patterns and making patterns than I do scrolling.

        I may have found a cure though. I am going on a cruise in January so no computers for a couple of weeks. That may help,,,,,but I doubt it.

            Carl, the cruiselines have computer rooms now. I bet you'll spend more money in there than you will in the casino. haha.

              I will probably be too busy on the dance floor anyway.
              Steve you are right. I am taking a couple of cameras with me so I will get tons of inspiration

                Carl,

                Hand a camera to someone that isn't dancing and ask for photos of you and your wife dancing. Now that's a pattern in the making. Your Fred and Ginger pattern will have some stiff competition....Aye!

                  by Bill Wilson
                  I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                  Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                  High ceilings make a house look super elegant. You have the option of doing some cool interior doors that are not possible with 8 foot ceilings. A lot of the large very old houses in my area have those....

                  And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                  Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

                  I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
