    One wood working project at a time for me. I am 'task completion' oriented. If a project stalls I can always find something else in life to do while waiting for whatever.

    Glad you had checked. As I said, I am paranoid about heat and electronics. Been bit before. Even some 1/2" holes in the sides, and then in the top right over power supply would allow convection to...
