      When your band tie is just one loop to short for wrap and tuck? Phooey!

        Sound is a good speed indicator when working with a lot of tools to give you that harmonic balance of results.

        Whenever I hear the words "bandsaw" or "table saw" they start to show a movie in my inner cinema. Just that it is more an documentation than a slasher-movie to me, as I am a trained nurse, U see?

        We do try to share it here but we all have our own ideas and yes there's many of us that makes them but most of us do it for the love of making them and really not the business and if we did we would be all disappointed as only a few ever make a dime doing it. Good post though because the more shared the better.
