So I took that in, along with some saved gift cards, and walked out with… A Jess-Em Mast-R-Slide sliding table! Whoo Hoo! This poor thing has been sitting in my shop gazing ...
This blog entry shows how I install the small (1 inch diameter x 3mm thick) brass Makers-Marks on my projects. I like the traditional feel that the labels give a project.
