I think I do.

Send me a PM describing it in detail to verify that we're talking about the same tool.

What I want to know is does that crook psychiatrist desk have a draw in it for mental blocks.
What do you mean get serious. I know this a discussion about a mysterious tool that does something that we don't know any thing about and that we have to save up a lot loot so that someday we can buy it because it shines.

You've nailed it, Bob!

Actually, the psychiatrist's desk had a secret hidey-hole to stash a weapon in case things got violent. And a panic button. Pretty cool. I wonder if John ever needs to use it?

John pushes the panic button and the siren in my office goes off.

It is rather annoying.

Is that when he's out of junk food? (I noticed that his garbage can was full of junk food wrappers. You've got to get him to eat better!)

I thought that new tenoning tool should have been called the FoxTenonizer. Tenonizer cuz it helps you make accurate tenons. Fox in reference to fox tenons and, well, Megan. I don't care what John calls it, I'm calling it the FT-1 and ordering one.

And, dammit, I thought the Festool slippery slope was bad...

I posted this prototype on the FOG a long time ago, I don't think I will get around to making a finished one for a while. Perhaps Bridge City would like to jazz it up, It's really useful for marking centers for lathe work. Centers both squares and rectangles in a second and marks them with a tap on the pin with a hammer.

Usual way is to mark the diagonals
to locate the center



The easy way
