Just need T. Mc. to slow down his speaking a bit. From the south, I hear at a slower speed. :)

Good tip, works well. I have gotten into the habit of cutting the stock a little extra long ( or wide ) run the dados, then rip to proper size. But there are times when that aint possible, an I gotta use a backer board.

I typed all that slowly just for Bill haha. By the way Bill, how’s that Butcher pig sticker workin out?

The dude is definitely hard to understand. Not sure he needed to do video on this. A simple sentence would have done perfectly well.

I dunno, I’m from NY and I have no problem understanding him. Love the show, and the informational videos.
