And So It Begins

 I didn’t get much done. Mostly I dragged all the tools out, and started organizing the reloading bench into model builders bench. My mitre saw was out of square (which I found out the hard way), I had to toss The Reclusium looking for my spade bits (they were up on the wall, in their proper place, right under my nose)… I haven’t used much of this stuff in years. This game is all about getting things plumb, square and straight. I seem to be able to get my measurements within 1/32” ~ 1/64”… but I’ll be damned if I can get them bang-on. Oh well… it’ll trim out! HAR HAR HAR!

I could really use a scroll saw. They have cheapo saws at Home Despot… but I dunno what to make of them. The $149.00 dollar Chinksaw vs. the $700.00 De Walt…? I don’t want to buy one at all, really. In 40 years, this is the first time I ever really needed one…  gonna need a few more clamps too…

  1. Forget about scroll saws. Buy a bench top band saw. The 9" Delta will do the job. Should run you about 100U$. Check your local classifieds for used ones.
