    Here are two more puzzles cut from the pictures I posted in my March 12 thread. (the fifth is a farm scene that I may not get to for awhile).

    Winter Feeders is a little one, only 120 pieces, but a stickler because of all the grey. The pieces can best be seen in the back view. It's about nine inches tall. I like cutting these small ones every so often, especially when they present a little challenge.

    My wife Jean has not assembled Artist's View yet. It's 300 pieces and a bit large (12 x 13.5). The pieces cut from the windows have little orientation to color lines so they're trickier to put together. I used butterfly locks about helf the time. By the way, as I entered this puzzle in my log book, I realized that it's the 745th full-size puzzle I've cut in the past nearly 20 years. Makes me exhausted just to think about it!!!

    As usual, I hope they give you some ideas.

    745th!.........I'm looking forward to your 1,000th, Carter!

    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous puzzles with us, as always. I'm particularly fond of "Winter Feeders." We have a nice arch window off the family room, and I hang a bird seed bell off a shepherd's hook right outside it each week. When the squirrels aren't trying to attack it, it seems to really attract the cardinals, and I love watching them.

        That is an amazing number of puzzles. However, I think the puzzles reflect the skill you have developed making that many puzzles.

          At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

          The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

          Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
