I made it! It was a long and arduous journey, but I’m here.

I drink more coffee now that we have a Kuerig. I typicall like to grind my own and use a the DIY reusable gadget to make my coffee. I got a bag of Deathwish Coffee whole bean for Christmas and REALLY liked it. Now I’m sad because I’m out. My next whole bean will probably be a selection from the guys at Black Rifle Coffee Company.

@Cricket are you sharing the bacon? :D The coffee I had this morning was extra bitter/horrible but that’s what I get for drinking break room coffee.

Since it appears I’m now doing microphones for the SO’s crafting event, I’m trying to make sure the speaker I have will work with the mic package the business bought. It’s got a 3.5mm plug in the back (it’s a JBL Extreme Bluetooth speaker) so I’m assuming as long as I bought the correct cables (xlr – 1.4, and a 1.4 to 3.5mm adapter) it will work…. and that’s where building a rolling AV case comes in as well. oy. Anybody feel like telling me I’m on the right path or completely clueless? (only about this though – I know I’m clueless about other stuff too ;)

Several companies make sliding tablesaws. Kris at Rockyblue has one of the Grizzly ones. Swears by it. SawStop makes an attachment to their regular saw. Baliegh makes one that’s reasonably priced, but I don’t know how good their stuff is.

Arlin, the sliders are nice, but they do take a LOT of real estate. They typically have a BIG footprint. (Too big for my garage)
Maybe there are some smaller versions I am unaware of?

I have this little Jet table saw with a small sliding side table, but I am sure that is NOT what you are referring to.

I’m pretty sure you are referring to one of these beastie boys.

We had a Euro-slider (similar to the second pic in DS’s post above) in our crating shop and no one really liked it.

I’d see that saw sitting idle and the crew would be breaking down sheets on a regular TS.

I’m not sure why, either it was broke, or they just couldn’t get used to it. We sold it off and got a real panel saw and never looked back. They take up a LOT of floor space, but they cut dead square, are very safe, are programmable, and can cut stacks up to 4” thick.

If anyone has others, please post and I will send them along., or you could email them directly. Also, if y’all have pictures of Ezekiel, I would like to see them.
Thanks!

Monte, they are reputed to be safer than conventional saws.
If you’ve got the money and the real estate, then go for it.

I can see how anyone unfamiliar with it would maybe shy away from using it and how someone who knows how to use one can get the most out of it.

Cricket—We are expecting a plethora of rain over the next several days here in south Louisiana too. The weather guy is suggesting 20” in some areas. I heard that southeast Texas might be looking at up to 35”! Drainage systems are not designed to handle that much rain in a short period, so flooding is expected.

The fact that the storm is expected to be slow moving is definitely going to make the rainfall totals insanely high.

Glass has a straight edge. I use it like anyone would use a metal scraper….mine is easier to sharpen…just cut a new edge.

Just a common window pane thickness….Glass cutter to score a new “line”, snap off the “dull” edge, and back to work.

It can be cut to match a shape, if need be.

Either push it, tilted forward,..or…lean it back and pull it towards you.

Keep the piece small enough, that you won’t flex it til it breaks. Don’t really need gloves, either.
