          I like your gadgets. I watch for them. Get yourself an O-ring making kit and you will be able to make any size belt you need and it'll give you nice round belts.
          Great work

              Hi Darcy - sorry but I still can't classify your objects as useless!

              We have a small interactive science museum in our town especially for young kids and one of their displays looks very similar to your pulleys and gears. The only difference is that its bigger and the pulleys and gears are painted bright colours with contrasting spirals on the pulleys. The kids can't resist cranking the end gear around a few times to get those spirals spinning. Maybe we should get my pal Jim to inlay a spiral on the pulleys?

              Very nice work - I like it!

                    Way cool! What are the teeny metal-looking things around the gears -- they kind of look like little metal studs? Something glued on?

                                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%.

                                Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                                Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
