    I sure have some busy chipmonks around my place

    I have a small Ryobi 9" band saw that I started using for my pen making about 7 or 8 years ago... since I got the Delta 14", I don't use it much anymore, except to cut acrylics and antler, so I don't ruin the blade on the big saw.... today was the first time I've used it in several months, and it normally sits in the cabinet under my chop saw... I turned it own and you never heard such a rattle as that thing made... normally it's very quiet and smooth running... I stopped it and opened it up... the chipmonks found another place for their nuts....
    They added a little corn for variety.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but rats and mice will follow soon. I would be getting some big rat sticky traps if nothing else, or out of harm's way for a pet, a small bowl of antifreeze. Your troubles will soon be over, but the holes they have created to get in will remain and must be found and plugged.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
