Hahaha I know the feeling. Buying tools, etc, left me in negative money quite a while. Great for tax purposes though!

Welcome and I hope you find threads and people on here helpful, take care.

Haha costs going up by the day?

Know the feeling, my paypal is taking a hammering. Purchased/arrived over the past couple of days: A new sharpening block, coping saw as it's cheaper than buying new blades, plane (just because it was a nice one), more wood and mdf, screws and bolts, glue, etc etc, it all mounts up!

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

As the folk told me when I owned my own business. It doesn't matter if you loose money...just write it off.

There are different types of sandpaper made with different abrasives. Some are described here:
http://www.abrasiveresource.com/cate...Sandpaper.html

Here the origin:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandpaper

A cheap way to get a smooth surface is a plane or a scraper.
It doesn't wear out like sand paper does or get clogged.
BTW where are you on the profit margin....still negative?

Is that a rocket launcher on your shoulder? I've been looking for one of those. They're very hard to find.

I had to buy a pack of those cone shaped paint filters for the rusty stuff / coffee ground stain that I'm making so I'm down another $1.85

I guess I go with out shoes again this summer.
