  • VW 1960s camper

    The vehicle of my childhood is finished. The license plate commemorates the city of Salzgitter, Germany, my father's initials and his birth year.
    Childhood memories. The family (father, mother, five children) used to go to church in this vehicle. But usually we had to walk home, because Dad insisted on chauffeuring little ole' ladies back to theirs.

    Pattern by Fred and Julie Byrnes. Found it on Woodarchivers for free but not legally so. Through the kind people in the Scrollsaw Village, I got the website and contacted them. Julie Byrnes kindly sent me the pattern.

    I really like your wood choices. And the special meaning for you. How big is it?

            Very nicely done - your stories and provenance make it special.

            Great Job!

                Just saw an interview about the new SuperMax 16-32 on Facebook, and it was mentioned that the new folding infeed and outfeed tables are available for the 19-38. Price is about $149.

                Brilliant! I love it. I have tons of scrap wood that I just can't part with... and I have been pondering what I should do with it. Some of the pieces can be used with intarsia, but honestly, I am running out of storage for it. This is a great idea that I will be happy to borrow. =) Nice work.

                Yeah blade clamps falling on the floor huh? And I thought that only happened with a Hegner. I couldn't believe it the first time it happened to me with my Hegner.

                (facebook algorithms not allowing me to find the page right now... doh.) If the new one is the same one I receive a press release about (the quick adjustment lever, and folding infeed/outfeed tables), I've reached out to them asking if these can be retrofit onto older sanders...
