    Teach was it 30 ski areas that closed their doors last year ?
    Only the biggest can remain open if they must make man made snow

    Looking at the Maggie’s Farm list, our trip to France last summer didn’t happen. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cry.gif

    We already have the kayaks.

    Younger daughter is getting a new, high end laptop. My wife is getting a remote car starter so she can burn more fossil fuel but have a warm vehicle on frosty mornings, but that’s her birthday present (the 16th).

    My Christmas present to me is a cast iron extension wing for my Ridgid R4512 table saw. In it’s previous model, the TS3650 — ignoring the short-lived R4511, with a granite top — Ridgid had cast iron extension wings. But when they moved to the R4512, they replaced the cast iron wings with much less expensive stamped steel wings. The TS3650 was discontinued many years ago, and finding the cast iron wings from them is difficult, I found one on ebay last April, and you can see it installed on my saw. I lucked out and found another just two weeks ago; in the picture it’s sitting on top of the saw, not installed yet.

    The darker grey wing is the stamped steel, and to the right of that is my cheap cast aluminum router table. I’m anal enough that, once I get the extension wing installed, I’ll want to add a cast iron router table wing, but at that point I might have issues with throwing the saw out of balance.

      Sitting on the router table, you can see two ‘chippers’ from my stacked dado head cutter. Normally I have my dado set in my circa 1961 Craftsman radial arm saw, but the last thing I had to cut with that was a mortise in some table legs, so that had to be done on the table saw. My 32 tooth ripping blade, which had been in the saw before I changed it out is sitting there as well.

      Nice find. I inherited from my father-in-law a craftsman table saw with a cast iron top. The thing is heavier than heck and hard to move around, but that top stays pristinely flat.
