  1. Yes, we do Chuck. I buried my Dad this past Monday - died November 9th at age of 102. Thoughts and prayers for a good outcome and speedy recovery for your Mother-in-law. Thoughts and prayers to your wife as well. Take whatever time you need. Family first.
  2. Tiny Hem in Sails

    Mike, I did a single fold on mine and used a "fray stopping glue" made by same company to stop the edge from fraying - time will tell if it really works or not. Probably a double fold would be better but then it depends on the scale. My single fold is nearly impossible to distinguish at 1:48 scale.
  3. Tiny Hem in Sails

    I would suggest going to a sewing store like JoAnns and getting Aleene's Tacky Glue (you may also be able to find it in Michaels craft store). I've used it to tack down the sail cloth as I fold over the hem. Makes stitching easier. You could lay some rope (e.g. Syren rope) inside the fold of the hem, apply a little Tacky Glue to hold it. It dries flexible and holds pretty well. I used on the last set of sails I had to make. Admiral did the sewing machine part for me.

    John, keeping you and your wife in my prayers for a speedy and complete recovery.

  7. Yeah, had a similar problem with FedEx Smartpost. Traveled 800 some odd miles from Vermont to Boston to Virginia to Pennsylvania to New Jersey (2 locations) before they delivered to US Postal Service who then delivered it to me in the Hudson Valley of New York about 120 miles from the origin store. Trippwj (Wayne) is right, contact Canada Post, let them track it down.

    Nah, it is actually bottled bilge water
  9. Yes! After the decal sets and dries, apply either Microsol Gloss or Flat to seal the decal, let it dry completely, then apply your matte finish over the Microsol
  10. Try using Microsol GLOSS on the area of the wood where you intend to place the decal. Place the decal, use Microsol SET to "set it down", when dry use Microsol FLAT to flatten the glossy look; then over spray with a matte finish. Decals (at least water decals) work best on a gloss surface.
  11. Cool Tool Box

    Kurt, search on "wood art box", here's link http://www.displays2go.com/P-22078/Wooden-Artist-Box-for-Art-Supplies?st=Search&sid=artist storge
  12. What have you received today?

    Carl is right ! Remember it is a binary numbering system, so it is 2 raised to the n-th power - or 2 raised to the 10th power = 1024, which is represent as 1K (kilobyte), 2 raised to the 32nd power is 4,294,967,296 or 4 Gigabytes. Everyone assumes, incorrectly, that it is decimal (base 10).
