    By the way Feeder, this is a great machine for the money if you have the mortise bug. I bought one when they first came out with it and the only complaint is that larger mortises on hardwood tend to stall the 1/2 HP motor. They quickly acknowledged it deficient power and replaced it with a 3/4 HP motor. Unfortunately I'm stuck with the original, but it's still a good machine capable of working larger pieces of stock than any other bench model I had seen at the time. Although, I'll admit I haven't paid much attention to many newer models that may have come out in the last 10 years.

    Thanks for that link, Smooth, found this..., I have visions of what I could use that for, other than it's intended purpose, (tenon jig), keep me from cutting any more fingers. Finger is healing quite nicely, still may not end up with a finger nail on that finger, blunt reminder to use the right tool for the job.

    Yeah, I meant to reply to your kick back post, but never did. Freaken table saws... I dont care who you are, if you use one enough, odds are eventually your gonna get bit. Kick backs can happen fast man. And I'll admit to letting my focus slip one day. I basically put my left index finger straight into the blade while trying to grab a strip of wood (My finger nail grew back but still hurts sometimes). A guy I used to work with wore a motorcycle helmet for years when he ran his saw after a good sized chunk of wood kicked back and damn near killed him. When I was in high school waiting to use the saw, I saw a kid take a piece of wood straight into gut. He folded over like a pocket knife and damn near laid his face into the blade. Even though there are lots of ways to make them safer, table saws can just plain be dangerous.

    By the way, the easiest way to cut tenons that I have found is with a dado blade and miter gauge, no jig required.

    It helps to keep table saws upright also. Unless you're looking for entertainment.

    I removed the blade guard on my table saw 20 years ago - I find it safer (for me) to not have it interfering. I always keep my hands away and never get them close to the blade - pushsticks are the only thing getting close to the blade.

    There are lots of ways to make tenons - I used an old single end tenoner for many years. I was moving it to a new project and it fell off the stand and broke. Was a little upset, but the thing was pretty scary. tenoner1.JPG

    I would probably not be using it to make tenons at all, But I see other uses for such a device. Clamp a board in it and run it trough, depending on what you are building, you could make several repeat cuts to several boards - limits would be on length and width etc. Just looks like it would be a handy tool to have. I might suffer with toolitus, terrible addiction to have.

    All of my table saws are portable and each one came with one. Never installed them so if you need one, let me know.

    Yeah, last pic (and the 1st). It's two cutting heads with two knives each, plus the small shoulder cutting knives. You push the work piece, which is secured on a sliding table, though the cutting heads - presto, perfect tenons in seconds.

    Agree to agree sir.

    Then when ya absolutely can not do it any longer ya wind up with a bunch of tools ya hate to part with but ya also know ya could use the money. That's what I'm going through right now. Been feelin like bear scat lately so I have been quite here.
    Sold some stuff for cheaper than I really should have past week so's I could buy this lectric wheelchair that has big motors and 4x14" wheels. Now I can run around the yard without gettin stuck. Don't get old y'all it really sucks, sometimes. :-),

    Told a shrink doc at the VA one time in a group, "Life sucks, then ya die!" Pissed him off a bit, but all the other guys agreed with me. Don't think he'd ever seen the elephant. We make the best of what the maker gave us, that's the best we can do in life.

    Love finishing up at 1 on a Friday sirs. Pops and i
    have been whittling on this little 10x12 gazebo all week save for Monday's beer and barbecue.

    Here's a look at the 1.8 million dollar view of the big city, not sure they got much bang for the buck.

    20170602_121833.jpg

    Copper roof there, surely ccjoe would agree that it's a sound investment. 4400 bills to cover 120 square feet.

    Anyhoo, a look at some of the cedar action. Home owners said smooth side out.

    I bought the Senco 15ga angle finished nailer Tuesday and absolutely like it a lot. Highly recommend if anyone is in the market.

    Now you've went and done it, now I gotta have one of those finish nailers. You and smooth gonna have me tool broke.

    My nail gun is Harbor Freight junk, not even worth trying to use. Won't do finish nails, shoots one nail, no nail or two nails, never know what you're gonna get. Thinking of putting it in the next yard sale.

    Like this one even better, no air hose to mess with, handy for small jobs unless ya want to have a couple extra batteries and a charger with ya.

    Thanks Feed, the stone masons are a crew of black boys from Jacksonville who normally lay brick. Real good guys, very hard workers.

    This is the same place i posted pics of back in January when I helped pour the footings for the the stone slab down by the pool and the footers up by the house, they have been laying rock since and should finish this weekend. Snapped a few shots of their work.

    20170601_132528.jpg

    You walk in the door under the stairs there and there is just as much rock inside as out. Guys spent about 2 weeks under there.

    Nice looking gun Lt. I've never used the cordless versions but with the li battery they are probably pretty handy.
    Was talking with a fellow yesterday about the the cordless paslode framing nailer and hes trying to sell all 4 of his. Says after a box or so of nails they need maintenance, not sure what he ment exactly
    but I've never been tempted to buy one.

    I can say the corded Senco I just purchased is well balanced, light and spits one nail faithfully every time.

    Comes with a nice plastic case, 2 no mar tips, two triggers which are very simple to swap and this handy hook for your belt here.
    20170601_094952.jpg

    179 at homey depot, will probably get at least one more myself.

    Yes, I can't see the added cost of the battery nailer when I don't really even need one. I still have a hammer and it don't cost me much to keep it, rather low maintenance. Not like I get paid by the hour anymore. I might spring for the air nailer, just because it would really be handy when I am building bee equipment, or other home projects.

    Lt, ive got a bostitch 18ga straight finish nailer that no longer gets used here. Shoots from 1.25 throuh 2.5 inch nails and is the super light magnesium housing. It's around 10 years old and I've probably trimmed 40 homes with it. It's the oil free design and has been 100% reliable for me.

    If you want her she's yours free of charge because your cool like that. I'm serious.

    Mighty generous of you, however..., I already own two 18 ga stapler/nailer air guns, just a bit on the light side for some projects, nevertheless, they do get used quite a lot. I've even used them on those bee boxes, but I more than likely would use 6d galvanized nails on those or 2" deck screws, and use the stainless staples on the frames. I've got close to 50# of 6d galvanized nails, most of which I inherited from the Father-in-law. No more than I will probably use of them, someone else will probably end up buying them off my wife, some day..., I say that, cuz, she would probably not be giving them to anyone, tight wad.
