Sean, you do not need to worry whether or not I am wearing my safety glasses. I can assure you, when I am working with machines/tools that have even the slightest potential of sending things flying, they're on. It's been like that ever since I stepped in on the very first day in wood shop.

Re RCA videos - I don't have trouble figuring out what to listen to but I do understand your very valid point. I learned a fair amount before I started buying those videos so I had a bit of a leg up. That's how I've been with most O'Reilly books as well so I guess that shouldn't surprise me. If I put on the "newbie" hat then those videos would most definitely be counter-productive. You may drop him a line and see how he responds. Maybe suggest a "Full-House Setup Guide for the Complete Neophyte" kind of thing. Paul seems to be very responsive to customer input.
Funny I am writing this to you and there is an ad stating the "Worlds Best Glider Training Videos" staring me in the face! Look maybe I shouldn't rag on it so much...

I asked for this. So I best just suck it up and experiment. I just was mad, pissed, peeved, ticked off, and whatever that I did not get out to SULA and get it a toss.


Things could be worse: Tomorrow is election day here in the USA! The one day my voice is heard, then ignored for the next four years!

A couple question/statements:
How much of the Vias gets intersected, and which color- same as final O.D.? (red)?
That Polycurve really smooths out these lumps!
I think I'm gonna trick this adobe thing- export to Dxf, pull back into fresh program- set up for PDF- maybe that will take OK- Norwejian Brainstorm!- very Dangerous!

Import= dashed/dotted lines- converted to solids, exported PDF,OK, then went back to drawing, nutin' there
edit tree has data called- there is this same problem within the m lion from autoCAD situations- very ugly- But--- The Norwejian will quit making thermals now!

The circles are just temporary, once you trim out the center of the circle you can delete it. I make my circles 3/32" usually. Also do Not put a Via on an intersection of 2 lines (like in the pic), try and put them on long length lines or arcs so they will be easy to spot by the end user and much easier to cut. Just remember what you draw is what you get.

That should be clear as mud, lol!

Oh, Your on your own with this Mac, lion, tiger, bear stuff..... I am strictly windows, lol.

Katie,

I was just reinforcing DonW's statement, not just for you but all of us. I'm not the most safety conscious guy so I try to remind myself too. Safety glasses have saved my eyes a dozen times over the years.

Jeff, no problem, just remember those throws were pulled out of my ! Seanpcola assumes no responsibility for results. Not available in all states. If you have a flight lasting more than 4 hours see your doctor........

Yep, wife and I are off to the voting booth!

Sean, no worries. Just didn't want you to worry.

I can't say my eyes have been saved, yet, by the glasses ---- wait. Once. It was a full face shield, because I was under the boat, fiberglassing above me. Lots of fallen fibers, and a huge glob of resin landed on the mask above my face.

Now, the whateveritscalled mask, that one has likely saved me lots of grief over the past year. Dope, CA, and various epoxies and resins, and occasionally brake fluid -- some make me sick, some eventually will.

matched set

Totally off the subject again but have to show you all my switchblade set. These are 11" and 9" Francesco Beltrame stilettos, the real Italian deal. The dark horn scales are very close in the white fire towards the top bolsters...I'm in love. Sometimes I just like to set and have cocktail and flick and polish them, they kick like a mule .

Don, I bet all the young men that called into your house to court your daughters caught a glimpse of them, heheh


Hoss, today I am on a vacation to after 5 hard months of working everyday and nights I could, but unlike you it isn't to find some quiet solace and sabatical but to be re-united with my little blonde sunfrau after 9 months apart, she arrives at Darwin airport early tommorow morning. So, not much drinking for me, but hey, I will be doing other things anyway.

Have fun dude. and let the white line fever subside.

Awesome knives Don!

Katie: I could tell you some stories that would curl your toes about safety glasses saving my eyesight. On at least 5 of those occasions the glasses were demolished doing their job.

Congrats on the reunite Steve! Guess we'll here back from you.................in a month or so.

Sean I read your story about Keith losing his Merlyn, heartbreaking.

Like Keith, I too would be enjoying 'full bodied' beers ever after such a tragic and funny episode.

Happy voting over there, you Yanks, and southerners alike .
May your man achieve victory. Hope you got some fun out of it, like an election day BBQ or something to help the entertainment along.

Hi DW

I lived in East Los Angeles while being a teen and saw switch blades a lot , the bad ass gang dudes all had them before the modern times of packing a gun.

Some of the guys made Zip Guns in shop class's, just use a rubberband to hold the hammer shut, no trigger just pull the hammer back and let her go and bang.

The shop teacher did not know what the guys were making using a brass tube with a slot for the hammer, very simple gun to shoot another gang dude.

Those blades are nice!!
