    I remember the time I was kidnapped and they sent back a piece of my toe to my father. He said he wanted more proof.

    I tell ya when I was a kid, all I knew was rejection. My yo-yo, it never came back!


    My mother had morning sickness after I was born.


    My father carries around the picture of the kid who came with his wallet.


    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

      Stu: Might want to consider some "Deck-O-Drain" for the driveway. It's used extensively out here around pools in the "Cool Decking."

      It comes in 8' or 10' lengths, and can cut it with a hacksaw (it's plastic), and buy a bag of grout mix and blend/feather in where you saw cut.

          im going to weld up 4 steel grates to sit inside on the ledges i cut out,, they will be made from 1x1-1/8 sq tubes for the frames and 9gauge 3/4 expended diamond metal sheeting, that i will have to paint every 3-4 years,, i already ordered the steel, so no turning back now.


          also


          i got my eye on this really wild new saw,, its a cold saw but without the water.

          no sparks and cuts fast as a cold saw.

          its 400.00 shipped

          http://www.milwaukeetool.com/Product...C%3a+Chop+Saws

          "The 6190-20 utilizes dry (a.k.a. "cold") cut technology which will cut on average three times faster than an abrasive machine and costs 1-1/2 times less to operate. The saw produces little to no sparks when cutting and leaves a virtually burr-free finish. The motor is a 15 amp, 4.8 max H.P. The base is a heavy-duty cast aluminum reinforced with a 1/4 in. steel plate. The vise and back fence is tool free. The horizontal D-handle provides optimum comfort whether the tool is on the ground or sitting on a bench."



          what do you think dave?

          the blades are 100.00..

              the units comes with one blade already,, so thats good.

              i also hear the metal doesn't even get hot when cutting, from the reviews i just read on amazon.com

                    If it matters to you, CPO sells reconditioned machines. I see they are also selling new machines; But I have seen better prices on this machine on Ebay for both new and recon. Take some time and shop around for a while. Read the fine print as some of the recons don't include a blade.

                        insanity and deliberate ignorance triumphs over money any day of the week on my street, so i have that going for me.

                        also,,, i decided not to get the Milwaukee after reading more reviews about those blades.... so i just picked up a dewalt 14" up at the home depot this morning.

                        now im off to weld up the grates for this trench

                              Milwaukee/ Dewalt both cheap knock off copies of the origional. Jepson Dry cut saw. Much more money and much heavier duty. I have and use the 9312s .

                              If you paid more than 339 WITH a blade you got a free shafting....

                                We have had the Milwaukee saw for about 6 months now and are very pleased with it. We added a folding stand with a swivel assembly for the saw which made it a whole lot easier to move, set up, and use. The stand is a Delta miter saw/planer stand. The swivel is a 12" lazy Susan bearing.
