when I was much shinier new at sawdust production, I was making myself a mash paddle (for non-homebrewers, it's basically a canoe paddle with holes drilled in the blade) and no matter how hard I pushed, it was taking forever to drill 1" holes in the blade with my power hand drill, burning the crap out of the wood, smoke coming out

I thought it was just really hard maple, but it took me quite a while to figure it out

hint: reversible drill

When I was in my early 20s, I ripped an oak board on my roommate's radial arm saw. The saw worked hard on that cut, and I burned the wood somewhat. The garage was filled with dust and smoke, and visibility grew poor. I opened the door and walked into the house to let it settle.

Lo and behold, the house was filled with dust and smoke too. I sat there, scratching my head, trying to figure out how all that dust and smoke got into the house through the closed door. Then I took off my glasses. ;-)

I ordered and received a spanking new marking gauge to make even more nothing in the coming months..
I'm actually thinking about not doing nothing and do something with it.. You something?
My old I-guageing gauge irritated me for reasons I can't really explain..

Anyway the new gauge is from Taylor Toolworks..

I kind of like the fact that the cutting wheel will retract into the wheel/fence for storage instead of getting knicked and dinged up in the toolbox..
Other than that, not much to write home to mother and father about..

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?
