    DoPa EX May 2007 Issue

    Well, I go the mag, yes, I made the cover, but it is a SMALL pic

    Here is the table, I think the table looks OK, but the finish sucks!

    Attachment 6564
    I guess they liked my pics so much they put them on the index page as well, I'd thought it would scare readers away.....

    Attachment 6565
    This is the first page of the article, me and the "Pro" woodworker guy who built the table.

    Here is the page about me turning the legs

    And lastly, they were so impressed with my cyclone they took a bunch of pics of it, and put them in the mag as well.

    Cheers!

    Way to go Stu. Gee, I always wanted to know someone "Rich" & "Famous",......Now if I can only find someone "RICH".

    Seriously, looks like you got a pretty good spread in the mag. Maybe they'll come back again and do an article on Kermit for a Tool Restoration Story, and by then, they'll naturally have to see and get interested in the new Shop Built BANDSAW.

    There is a 15 minute or so video as well, I'm just having to figure out how to rip it from their DVD.....

    They say they are coming out with a book as well, and they say I'll be in that too, dunno which parts....

    Famous, well, I don&t think I'd go THAT far......

    Cheers!

    Stu, I agree, that finish doesn't do anything for me.

    The cyclone photo is cool, but a bit small for details. So I'm wondering... what is that small hose that wraps around the bin? Did you add a suction adaptor so you can use a plastic bag liner in the bin? I don't remember you saying so, and there's nothing on your website.

    You are right Art, having a plastic bag liner in the dust bin is THE BEST thing you could imagine!

    Cheers!

    Congrats on the mag cover, no matter what size. Not many of us can brag that has happened to us.

    Stu,

    Congrats on making it in to print!

    I saw the cyclone on your site. Did you build it? If so I'd be interested in knowing how.

    Also, you wouldn't happen to have a translation of the article into english so we could all read it?
