Re: How do I get my Drawing, Clipart, etc. tabs back.

F11 & F12 switch between Drawing and Toolpath windows. In addition to double-clicking the title bar, you could have also dragged that loose window over to the left side. An outline of the window will show you when you reach the right spot, then just drop what you are dragging to set it in place. PS....

Re: Zank Inlay wine service

... it may be that the glue (TiteBond III) absorbs a little bit into the cherry wood and selectively darkens it at the interface. I would definitely be interested to hear of other peoples' experiences with this kind of thing.... I've been told and read that Titebond III cures dark while regular Tit...

Re: How do I get my Drawing, Clipart, etc. tabs back.

Mike, double-click the title bar (at top) of the window. It will dock to its regular place.

Re: sometimes your lucky

I can think of only a few times in my past that I stumbled upon a deal like that. It sure feels like getting something for free, doesn't it? :D Hope its not too late to suggest that sealing the wall-to-wall board seams is so important if you are going to keep the sanding dust separated from the phot...

Re: Interesting: Drill toolpath uses any closed vector.

Ok, Mike, that sounds like something to go with what I challenged Loonster with on his Gallery post ( https://forum.vectric.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=35960 ). I suggested that the cribbage hole path loosely follow the lake outline, but then I couldn't suggest a way to align the basically oval shape of...

Re: layering/ stacking text

I'd forgotten that I produced this document over four years ago. I haven't looked at it much since then. Perhaps its still pertinent?

Re: Mystery Keepsake Box for Grandson

Thank you folks for the kind words. I don't remember much about my grandfather. I was just too young when he died. I do know that he would walk about twenty miles to the farm where we lived (his farm; my dad worked it) just to look around and visit with us. He would sleep in the "outhouse" (no, not ...

Re: Mystery Keepsake Box for Grandson

There are rather large embedded magnets in this piece that match embedded magnets in the internal side rails and also in the side that slides the top lid out. The magnets just hold it all together tight, as I did not want a locking mechanism. (So, Mom and Dad can sneak an occasional peek?)

Re: Mystery Keepsake Box for Grandson

I decided to use plexi to cover the music box mechanism rather than wood. It was a good call, because my Grandson will sit there and observe the mechanism making music.
