      Looks AWESOME! What is your circle dimensions? When I had my taxidermy shop, I used to mount the 'big one' for the disabled group we took out. It usually ran about a 34"-38" Lake trout. Last time took out about 87 disabled anglers and caught 122 Lake trout in about 3 1/2 hours. Big fish fry afterwards.
      Keep Up the GREAT work!

          I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

                  Hey Trout, great job. Don't mean to be picky but why did you leave the fisherman out? There is a hole that needs to be filled.

                  When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                    to tell you the truth..when I first saw the piece on Judy's website I didn't see the fisherman and when the pattern arrived that's when I noticed him. so what you see is what I envisioned in the first place..

                    I was gung-ho the first day and by the 3rd day I wasn't feeling the project especially the fish..but I got'er done...
                    then I hit a burn out period for a day or 4 which lead to doing only one piece a day for the rest of the project..
                    I did cut out the fisherman and boat which consisted of 4 pieces but by that time I wanted to get it done and didn't want to take any chances of screwing up the piece...

                    it's also getting harder and harder to give these things away...
                    I did show it off on our fishing site (I didn't mention that it's the grand prize for the raffle) and everyone loved it. I could of sold 6 in the first hour..

                    Hell, I'm still waiting for the check for the piece I did sell (gave away)!

                        That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                        I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

                        Reply to Question about tilting head saws
                        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,...
