        Yes, he was in my newhire class at the last airline I worked at. He just had a baby, and was about to start work at United.

              • First, double checked the TS miter for true-ness with 1-2-3-4-1 cut. Caliper indicates within square, dead true.


                Then started some cedar coasters from some scrap. I’m not sure if I will cork the backs after epoxy fill

                      Holy molly, are you sure? It took only 2 minutes to cut a few inches of 3/16" mild steel

                      • That saw moving around as in the video would drive me crazy. I like the machine to be steady.

                        The saw cuts about as fast as my Atlas H/V bandsaw does, in other words, about 1/3 as fast as I would like it to.

                        • made a new motor mount for my lathe


                          cut up a truck stub axle I found at the side of the road on the way home


                          cut up the spline section to get a piece of metal out for making a pen knife. Cost about 3x the amount in $ and time compared with using O1, but what a story!


                          got the chunk milled down to roughly the right thickness and found all the other bits I'll need

                            • picture in your mind this little scenario probably written by kafka:

                              you still don't have your form 1099 ( pension plan w2 )
                              you call 1-800-SOB-IAM1
                              they tell you to enter your password. you don't have one
                              you tell them to text you one. they have some made up reason it can't work
                              you tell them to email one. you can't access your email while calling this number
                              by the time you access your email, the password has expired. two minutes. I would like to take an entrenching tool to the sadistic SOB who came up with that
                              "would you like us to email you another password, or talk to a representative?"
                              representative.
                              "all of our representatives are busy right now. would you like us to call you back?"
                              yes
                              you can schedule a callback from 10 am to 3 pm any business day this week. what day would you like to call back?"
                              tomorrow
                              "what time?"
                              10:00
                              "am or pm"
                              AM!
                              "there are no slots available..."

                              just send everybody a new form 1099, you stupid @#$%^ - I am 100% certain that is why all the phone lines are tied up.

                                Yeah that would drive me crazy chasing any machine around.
                                What’s even worse than that I have seen shops with vises mounted in 2” reciever hitches that flop around.
                                If I want a moveable vise I mount it on a hammer union and it’s double tuff.
