    Well the itchy twitch has been scratched. At least this time I am not antagonizing you all with "my new toy" guessing game.

      Thank goodness. Usually, when you get a twitch, the rest of us lose days wondering if and when you're going to pull the trigger.

        😂😎 You win. I’m still “debating” (well mainly waiting on the money from the tax return to hit the bank account. 🤫 I saw it “pending” earlier today though 🥳🤩.) did you “order” and awaiting delivery? Or buy local and have it setup by now? What to do, what to do. 🤔

        as far as saws. I have an older Excalibur and a Seyco thought DH bought me when they were first released a few years ago so I am happy there. Like you, if I were looking to buy one, I would probably look long and hard at the Pegas now but I have never been up close and in person to a Hawk or a Hegner. 😔☺️

          I would love to buy local, but the only dedicated woodworking shop for big tools "Woodworkers Warehouse" closed many years ago. The only other place is owned by a total A.. H..., he will never see a penny of my money. The way he treats customers and employees makes me cringe. I am amazed no one has ever taken him into an alley for re-education.
          I am not big on patience so waiting for this drill press will be a tough one.

                Thank you Rolf, for letting us live vicariously through you. 😀

                  That sounds like the voice of experience. Do you have one?

                  I usually rig up my come-along. I clamp a couple of really big Clamps to my ceiling joists and hook the come along to that. That is how I put my Lathe and drum sander together.

                    Yes, I posted earlier about mine.

                    The problem is the case is rounded and no lifting point. For heavy tools, I normally use straps and a 2 ton engine hoist but it was not possible with the Nova. I wrote them and suggested that they add one or a threaded hole but of course never heard back.I

                    If you have a strong helper you will be ok. Or, lay the post sideways to put the head on and then set back up.

                        I'm itching too. Only because I came in contact with something Sunday night cleaning some vines from around a young oak tree. I now have a rash on the right side of face on chin, neck and back of neck. Wearing a mask at the grocery store yesterday did not help. As for equipment, I was going to get the Pegas scroll saw after my original surgery in February, which was changed to June, and now with everything cancelling this year, I am just going to wait and see what next year brings. Still have my biggest show that has not cancelled, and I do have the farmers markets from Sept to Dec, but that doesn't justify the cost of the saw at this time. I have, however, taken to bowl grinding and really love it. I did get some small burrs in the mail today for wooden spoons, which I will be trying later today. I put the saw on hold until next year depending on what happens. I have 2 drill presses, one for outside that I use for flap sanding and the one for drilling next to my workbench.. Bruce has to change the belts for me when I want the speed changed and he has grumbled about getting one that you just push a button and it changes speed.. As for the weight of anything, I have 3 strong nephews as well as a strong son who can lift heavy items like they were peanuts. Rolf I agree. The sander was the best tool we bought in the past few years. Amazing what a good sander will do.

                          I'm in the same boat. I get most of my sales surrounding demonstrations I do at the fairs. They've been cancelled. I do have a couple of orders from repeat customers, but that's all. Kind of a let down emotionally. My new toy money is on hold. Boooooo....

                          I like that PDF. This is something that Denny brought up on the phone last Friday as well. I told Denny that afternoon that the set screws would be something that I would not have thought of. We also talked about tightening the blade to much. I seem to have the tendency to over tighten the bottom clamp....

                          Hi guys - today I obtained a little more info of the obsidian crafter I am soon to meet. His name his Juan Castelan Mata. In 1987 he was selected by a local comissionary (foundation) to learn the craft of modelling and sculpting obsidian. After learning the basics of working with this stone he set up...
