This morning I was looking back at some of my posts from before I bought my new band saw, I had to chuckle at what I had written about what I was thinking at the time. I was primarily concerned with cutting the tops off of boxes and just have the luxury of having the saw if and when I needed it. After I made my decsion to buy and what to buy I began to be more and fasinated with the saw and what one can do with it. I've learned about re-sawing and how to set the saw up so that the blade doesn't drift. As far as cutting the tops off of jewelry boxes, that is so easy clean and all that I could ask for. I have just seen the demos on makeing band saw boxes and it does look like a cutesy project, I will try one soon. The fact is that I am so happy with the saw and it along with the new jointer pretty much finishes off my shop. All of the tools and belonging to this forum sure does make life here in West Texas a lot eassier to adjust to after all of my years in Alaska where, when I lived there, I could not image living any place else, God has truly blessed me and for that I am so grateful.
Just shsring my thoughts and counting my blessings this morning. We are all living in a special time in history, at least I believe that we are. The problems with not only our country but those of the entire world are closing in on us. It is difficult for me to imaging things every returning to what they were when I was younger and as a Christian I find it it hard to understand what people are thinking these days that do not believe as I do. As I said, I am just sharing my thoughts and I know that thiss is not the place to go on about world affairs and such, but just had to share a bit of what is on my mind. I do want to thank those of you that have been so good to give me advise about the things that I have asked about on this forum.
