Thanks for the help. Laying in bed last night I was thinking I needed to select and drap the carbide of to the side. Tony mentioned they are going to try to add layers at a later time which I will welcome for stuff like this. I am making a sign for a friend's friend that does saw sharpening. My curr...

Need help with closing vectors

Ok, for the life of me I can't seem to close up 24 vectors on this file. I would appreciate some advise on how to do it. I used the nodes etc but I must be missing something. They seem to be on the lines between the teeth of this circular saw blade.
thanks in advance.

My stab at a sign ô¿ô

This was saturdays project. First time using paint masking. Worked well. The tricky part to doing this sign was the wrench under the name. My method was to mask the board, cut the wrench, paint it first, then finish the rest of the sign. I cut the wrench at .2" depth and the name over the wrench at ...

I have some single flute (not O) bits I used but they dont' seem to cut as nice as the up spiral. Another thing I learned is the direction of cut, seems sometime couterclockwise works better than clockwise. Again this might have something to do with speed. The spiral bit I broke was 1/8" with 1/4 sh...

Tale of the hungry dinosaur

Well it was early evening and I was sitting at my computer catching up on things when I saw this mean looking dinosaur come in my shop. I saw tattle tale signs that she had not eaten for awhile. I helped her up on my counter so it would be easier to talk. She explained it was a few million years sin...

joenagel, you wouldn't want to share the file for the key would you? Pretty please? Since I am a locksmith by trade that would be fun to make. I know I could make one from scratch. But yours looks so nice.

This is a skirt I made about 2 months ago. Works pretty good. I enlarged the intake hole in the back to help the 4" hole pull more. My strap is temporary till I think of some other quick connect method. I found the when my garge is cold, the skirt doesn't do well till things start warming up. This h...
