  1. Danny, Thank you for that Awsome Tip on turning the plank over, I have always been to proud to admit I almost always slip and destroy my plank!. Especially when someone is watching me plank, now all I have to do is flip my plank and magic! It's gone. However I well not admit I slipped (lol)

  3. Simply Said Amazing!!! This is my new screen saver
  4. Tools I can't live without 1 digital calipers, 2 long arm adjustable magnifying lamp, 3 stand for holding plans the calipers I use are not expensive ones as used for fine machining so I don't have to worry about dropping them and losing there fine calibration so I just use a simple Harbor Fright brand the magnifying lamp I use has a long adjustable spring loaded arm (4 feet long) with a bright neon circular light that has a 6 x magnifying glass in the center (5") simply clamps to work bench. the stand I use for holding the planes and notes is a aluminum I . V stand (as the ones used in hospitals) with the 3 rolling wheels, modified with simple wood dowels that adjust to size with simple small spring loaded clamps. Jay
  5. I must say that thank's to Chuck I have saved a bunch of money and avoided getting burned a few time's , once I was offered a great deal on a model ship kit from a new member , I then sent a money order to the new member ($450.00 + $30.00 shiping) ended up with nothing!. another Time a new member Said he know's Chuck and every one on MSW, turns out when I asked a few of the members who know's him the answer was "NEVER HEARD OF HIM" I now check with Chuck (aka big brother) before I make any moves!. as most of us here on MSW we look out for each other and most of us are happy when one of our member's get's a great Deal, actually we brag about it LOL.
