well you certainly found the solution, but where is the can you were going to open, details man , details…lol…well i hope it was some beans, all woodworkers love and eat beans, especially if you had to go through a divorce, most are not left with anything else besides beans…

Sorry Grizz no beans, tomatoes, sause, and puree for a macorroni soup…I’ve upgraded from divorce beans already…LOL Greg, yeah, but I can’t get to my bandsaw and eeee gads what a mess on the saw table :>) What is really funny is it worked really well…and yes…dinner came out really well too. Thanks guys!
