I have a brand new Kehoe jig and am considering doing a “lumberjock” auction. The money would go to a new drier for my house. Today my dryer caught on fire and Heidi had to call the fire department. She tried to douse it with water to put it out but I think she upset the blaze as it got worse. The fire department showed up with 12 guys and a few trucks, a few cops, and an ambulance. LOL. Get-r-done! They sprayed water in the house and everything was wet. They ended up hauling out the dryer still on fire. Luckily none of the structure was damaged. It still smells like smoke here, but it’s not to bad.
So I need to sell some things in order to get this place back to normal. That means paint and a new dryer. The water ruined the pergo in my room, but it was somewhat ruined from a clogged toilet not that long ago. So it needs ripped out and replaced. I thought things were supposed to get better for me, but looks like theres still some unfinished business from the powers above.

I did post the excalibur sliding table a yesterday or day before. It’s a nice slider. I’m asking $275 for that. For the kehoe jig I would start the bidding at $45 + $5 shipping. So the starting price is $50 and will hopefully go up from there. This kit comes with everything, but I didn’t see the dovetail bits. I have never opened or used the jig, and it is still in it’s original packaging. It comes with the corner inlay jig too. I will start a seperate link with pictures if there is enough interest. Otherwise I will just post it on craigslist or something.

I just seen this article the other day about dryers

The heating unit went out on my dryer! The gentleman that fixes things around the house for us told us that he wanted to show us something and he went over to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean. (I always clean the lint from the filter after every load clothes.) He told us that he wanted to show us something; he took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it. The lint filter is made of a mesh material .. I’m sure you know what your dryer’s lint filter looks like. Well … the hot water just sat on top of the mesh! It didn’t go through it at all! He told us that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh that’s what burns out the heating unit. You can’t SEE the film, but it’s there. It’s what is in the dryer sheets to make your clothes soft and static free … that nice fragrance too. You know how they can feel waxy when you take them out of the box … well this stuff builds up on your clothes and on your lint screen.. This is also what causes dryer units to potentially burn your house down with it! He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush (or other brush) at least every six months. He said that makes the life of the dryer at least twice as long! How about that Learn something new everyday! I certainly didn’t know dryer sheets would do that. So, I thought I’d share!
Note: I went to my dryer and tested my screen by running water on it. The water ran through a little bit but mostly collected all the water in the mesh screen. I washed it with warm soapy water and a nylon brush and I had it done in 30 seconds. Then when I rinsed it .. the water ran right thru the screen! There wasn’t any puddling at all! That repairman knew what he was talking about!

I ended up selling the Kehoe jig. I still have the sliding table, and we bought a cheap drier. Just thought I’d update everyone. Thanks

I guess you don’t have insurance to pay for the repairs ? Sorry for you problems.
