  • Turned fail into win

    The other evening my wife and I were sitting outside talking and having a cool drink. She mentioned the days getting longer and just as I was about to launch into an explanation of the summer solstice I remembered that we got married on that day. It was our anniversary and she had said nothing all day. I sheepishly told her "Happy Anniversary" and she looked at me blankly. I could tell that she too had forgotten by the look on her face. I was one up!
    She went to the fence to talk to the neighbor and I went to the shop where I quickly cut a wordart fridge magnet that said "I love you". When she came back in I gave it to her. Now I was two up.
    This made me think of an idea. I'll make up several of these and sell them as Husband Survival Packs. Buy it now and put it away for an emergency. When you need a fast gift but have forgotten the occasion you're prepared. ha ha ha

                Only down side with your idea is 95% of craft fair shoppers are women so marketing to men won't cut it. Just my 2 cents.

                  Just Wondering...

                  Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                  With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                  I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                  Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                  I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                  If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...
