Let me introduce myself

First, thanks to all of you for your help with my question. I will go out to my "girl cave" to check on brands and post that later. I live in VA and am a retired high school math teacher. I have been a home level carpenter and shelves maker for over 40 years and took up the lathe about two years ago. I find woodworking very relaxing and, now that I have a little more time, I hope to improve my skills. My main interest though is riding my horses. I ride trail and dressage - I'm a wannabe at that too.

I have a wood shop in my garage. We built that a few years ago and I insisted on a three car garage - the third bay for my tools. I inherited some tools from my father and have bought and been given some too so I am fairly well equipped. I would like a really good table saw though.

Your problem is really quite simple. First you need to find they diameter of the tenon (we'll call this X), then divide that by pi. Once you have that take the radius of the chuck and multiply by Y and take the cosine of your answer and find the square root. Once you have the square root, solve the problem- a passenger train leaves the train depot 2 hours after a freight train left the same depot. The freight train is traveling 20 mph slower than the passenger train. Find the rate of each train, if the passenger train overtakes the freight train in three hours. (don't forget to show your work)

In all seriousness, I have no idea how to help you with your problem but welcome to the forum. These guys are great and very helpful to newbies.

Haha, that quasiexplamation reminded me of a few nightmares in undergrad. Here we just say "Howdy!". (that from a teacher turned Dr.)

Welcome to WWT and thanks for your years of public service as an educator!
