Bridge City Tools Behind the Scenes

Roger,

As Plingdongo points out, he is THE BOZO of all bozo's whom have not yet purchased the KerfMaker. However, now knowing him as I do I am afraid that kerfection is just completely out of his reach. It is a shame as there was so much hope for him.

There's an easy solution to this problem... I'm sure if you order 3 he (we) will stop picking on you.

I actually have (4) on order.

When are we going to see some pictures of your now completed & functional JointMaker Pro?

I shall take some photos tonight hopefully. At the moment it's very precariously secured to my work table while I figure out how I want to build the stand for it. They're not kidding when they say it needs to be bolted down. Yesterday I spent a little time with it cutting segment pieces and it's pretty darn slick. Cutting is easy enough, just need to dial in my angle since it ended up being a half degree or so off (compounding across 10 segments with an angled cut on each side = not quite a circle )

Using a stop block I was definitely able to keep all the segments nice and uniform though. Just wish they weren't uniformly wrong!

Ron,

You hurt me as I only have 3 on order. What am I to do?

Any more thoughts on you coming out for the Hand Tool event in October. I have plenty of room and would love to meet you and attend some of those seminars as well. Plus we are getting John out and maybe Pongar. He will be forced to come if John Economaki decides to attend as well.


Fred

I would call the very nice Natasha & add (1) one more to your order. You don't want having to change the kerf size every time you move to another machine...

I am hoping to attend, although my official Star Trek Transponder is not functioning correctly (could it need batteries?) & I'm not looking forward to the long car ride. We'll see when the time gets closer.

C'mon, Ron. What's the problem, don't they have charter helicopters back there?

Ron,

Thank you for the help with Natasha so that I could get the extra KerfMaker. That was so nice of you that I also called her and she happened to have two of the Stainless Steel Shoulder Planes. You should have them shortly. Just so you know as those planes were a little bit more expensive than the KerfMaker you had her send me, well I picked up your shipping charges. Yep, that's correct all of the shipping charges. Oh and Natasha mentioned that there was not quite enough room on your credit card so she had your limit extended. You are SOOOOOOOOOOOO welcome.

Fred
