    Keep 'em comming Rev.

    This is much better than having to go to the fabric store and ask for directions ...... there are women folk there who laugh at some of my questions. By the way ..... when do your friends stop giving you that strange stare when you say you bought a sewing machine for yourself, or you get excited about a sale on nylon at Joanne Fabrics?
    I'm so out of shape ......I passed gas yesterday and pulled a muscle!

    You tell them you have a force feed gear making power tool. Not a sewing machine.

    RamblinRev, I just wanted to thank you again for these videos. Since you started them I've completed a version of the segmented pad extender and a hammock. Several more projects are floating around in my mind. Thanks again for your efforts.

    I wanted to thank you as well, Rev.

    This series of videos answers the simple questions that I didn't want to bother asking my mother-in-law.

    Good stuff!

    That's a good one. I will have to remember that.

    My wife just volunteered me to teach a brownie troop how to use a gear feed power tool.

    There you go.
