  • Got crickets ?

    Took this photo after a recent fishing adventure with my neighbor ( he is the one in the picture ) . For anyone interested, there are 50 bream on that stringer!
    During a monetary lapse of reason I decided to try to make a pattern and cutting out of it for him. Many, many computer hours later, and after all afternoon in the shop, gritting my teeth and periodically holding my breath, here is the result

    Great job on that Robert!!!! Looks like you're not only getting the hang of cutting but the hang of pattern making as well.

        When they're biting they hit crickets like a freight train !
        ....at least they do in the southeast. We fished up almost 4 tubes catching those

            Gosh, Robert,
            Them's a lot of fish!!
            Absolutely first-rate pattern and cutting - and you say it only took you one afternoon?? Wow!
            Did you use a computer program to help you make the pattern? If you did, would you mind sharing which one??
            Again, great job!

                Thanx Kevin, Barry, Bill and Trout,
                I am getting immense pleasure out of learning the pattern making process ....it also has it's share of frustration as some of you know ...gonna be a good Christmas this year though

                Thanx Sandy,
                I cut it this afternoon, but I have been working on the pattern for hours. It really had some challenges ....my inexperience being the main one, and I had to keep walking away. I use Paint Shop Pro 7 , but it is a trial-and-error thing as I don't know diddly about the software. After the initial set up of the photo, The majority of it is done by hand with a mouse There are probably different and better ways to use the software, but I haven't discovered them yet. I am researching a graphics pad now and hope to have one soon as I am really enjoying this and have started making some pretty special things for some people in my life

                  I can honestly say I've yet to use a bug or worm for fish bait. Fish or fish parts- YES, bugs and worms - NO.

                  Again. Great job on the pattern AND cutting!! You surpassed my skill level a long time ago!

                    Barry, if you're moving to MN next summer, get used to worms. Nightcrawlers are a very popular bait in the summer for walleye and I use mealworms for "bream" or as we call them sunfish.

                    Not only that, but it's illegal to use fish or fish parts for bait in MN, unless they are minnows.

                    Robert, nice job on all. I have been taking a pattern tutorial on the Free Scroll Saw Patterns site. It's free and I'm learning a bunch. The tutorial is based on Paint Shop Pro. I just purchased PSP X off Ebay for around $35 just for this purpose. I'm working on a portrait of my wife right now. I'll post as soon as it's done. I'm just having a hell of a time with the hair. Her and her danged highlights.

                      Mike,
                      thanx for the encouraging words
                      Is this class a self taught do-it-when-you-can thing or an organized, sceduled, multiple-participant kind of class ? I am already a member of AFSP , just never joined FSP

                      Hair and eyes are my biggest challenges ...gets pretty frustrating sometimes !

                      Thanx for the info

                        Robert,

                        This is a do when you can type of class. The 2nd lesson comes as soon as you finish the 1st and after that each and every subsequent lesson comes on Wednesday evenings, after you have checked off that you have completed the previous one. You do have to submit a few completed simple projects on a few of the lessons. It's quite informative and you are sure to pick up a few tips. Try it, I think you'll like it.

                            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                            So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                            Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
