    That doesn't sound like a plausable situation, Bruce.

    Yesterday, after disassembling the Stubby lathe and doing a few other small things at the old shop, I spent some time getting the big machines placed and back on the floor. I may move the J/P another...

    Honestly, it depends upon "what kind of 3D" you want to do. Fusion 360 can do "more" than Aspire for some things, but with its wheelhouse, Aspire is a good tool. Rhinoceros is another top option here...

    Dennis, that on-call thing would have driven me to drink heavily a long time ago! (And I'm not really a big alcohol drinker either)

    Trust me I understand, having just moved my equipment into my "temporary shop" that will have to do until I can get a building up here at our new property. And you have a bunch of bigger stuff than...

    It's a balancing act...summers here are extremely hot and more importantly, extremely humid. But I'll cross that bridge when I get there. Until the other property sells, I can't make major decisions...

    I wear Sketchers GoWalk+ with supportive insoles. They are very light-weight but super comfortable. I do use anti-fatigue mats in my shop in the places I tend to stand a lot, such as at my bench or...

    Today was machinery moving day! I need to publicly thank 'Creeker Steve Wurster and my daughter's boyfriend Dan for providing some muscle. I'm also thankful that I put that winch on my trailer last...

    There are still a lot of cargo ships sitting off the left coast and waiting to be unloaded in addition to manufacturing challenges. Either or both of those factors...and other reasons...are what's...

    Straight, yes...but with curves, the "kerf" of the tooling you are using to cutting means the two sides will not match. That's why I indicated that two templates are required to get a perfect match;...

    The owner/trainer at the first place we had our horses years ago took that attitude. She never could accept why so many of the kids (and adults) moved on, some suddenly, some after finding "greener,...
