A work bench we made and just got back from the powder coater. And yes the top is supposed to be off set. Left the top unpainted in case we want to do some welding on it. Bent the sides over to keep it straight. Put holes in the sides as well for reasons

What are you making in your shop? And how many of a specific size would be typical job size? If you're doing 2-10 pcs of a part that's OK, but what if you're doing 100 pcs?

We bought a used one of these for $500. Replaced the bearings that hold the blade straight and the cuts are very good. The thing I like about this saw is that the saw rotates instead of the vise for angled cuts. A very nice feature. the nice thing about ... more »

What is "Not wanting to break the bank"? What are we talking $100-$500 or $500-$1k A good saw and sander will save a lot of time and frustration. Straight accurate cuts to start are very helpful.

In CA they let you do traffic school and keep the points off your record if you plead guilty. Then probation of one year with no tickets to keep it off. You still have to pay all penalties and court costs. Your first appearance you ask for this and can ... more »

So what you're saying is the bad seasons were prolonged because you keep buying season tickets? Way to be selfish and deprive anybody else of having a winning team.

When you get to that elite level, one would think they would be careful not to ruin their career/life. If it were from Aldon, one would think everyone on his program would test positive, since that's not the case, likely not from Aldon. TM

You really don't need to show up. You can do everything by mail. If cost is not an issue I'd just go that route. Also, you should check if CA even shares information with your state. It's possible they don't share in which case there is no insurance

At 5, my son started his passion on a PW50. twist and go, bullet proof. If you buy a clean one (PW50 or as they are now called TTR50), you won't lose a dime. If you buy a used CRF it likely was hammered by an adult. If you buy a new CRF they will last ... more »
