  • Where is everyone??

    Did everyone go into hibernation??? I guess I'm the first to use our new site. Since Christmas is over and projects finished, I feel a let down. Like I should be planning for a new year project. Do any of you feel the need to be doing something new for the New Year?

    Happy New Year

    Yes, Dena -- First thing tomorrow morning I'm cleaning my shop. I'm going to start '05 CLEAN. And, for me, a clean shop is new.

      Got to finish daughter B'day gift (10 Jan) then start on next years. got a bunch of nice cedar fence boards from a discarded fence that I have rescued by planing them down so should be able to do some nice somethings out of them. Probably ornament as the cedar is nice and light.

          I'm sawing!!

          I got a new RBI Hawk for Christmas (I guess all that bellyaching did some good after all), but FedX temporarily lost it, so I just got it yesterday. Wow!! Whatta machine. Now I can change a blade anytime I wanna. Used to be such a hassle to change 'em, I'd just keep sawing 'til the blade broke. Happy New Year to everyone!!

            OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ...........Sheltie, you didn't say a HAWK (or I missed it). A Hawk ~sigh~. I had a little Hawk I adored. When I started having problems with it I decided to get a new saw and wanted a longer "throat". I bought a 30" Excalibur and I'm bitterly disappointed. The 30" are great but everything else is ......well, I just don't like it. Even with the speed control set as high as it will go, it's too slow, adjusting the tension is difficult, the manual says it should be oiled EVERY DAY. It's probably me, but I have trouble changing the blades. I WANT MY HAWK BACK.

                Here I am!! I'm at work looking for something to do while I could be at home cleaning my shop. I just found out that I need pics of my shop to send in an application for a juried show. Anxiously awaiting next week-end when we go to the woodworkers show at the fairgrounds. I have my coupons, list and money and am ready to spend, spend, spend!! Accountant says I can still show a loss next year so I am only too happy to oblige!! EVERYONE HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR!!!

                  Well, I see that not everyone is hibernatiing. Nancy, I hope your shop space is larger than mine. I have a 10 x 10 bedroom workshop. I use to teach 6-12 yr olds to sew for 10 yrs, then I wanted to do some airbrushing and now I have big and little scroll saws. All equipment in the same room. I have to keep it clean or I wouldn't know which machine I was using. LOL
                  Thanks everybody now I don't feel so lost and will start working on my miniature rocking chair with fretwork 3 1/2" x 3 1/2".

                    Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

                    Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...

                    Thank- you for the feedback. While cleaning it up here are some interesting details. It has a paper bag filter. Then a second cloth filter before two motors. There is a local Wallvac dealer in Grand Rapids for parts. They have the bags in stock. They also said based on the serial number be...
