General Friendly Chat / Re: AAA - anyone still use?
« Last post by Bob Marino on Today at 09:12 AM »
Unfortunately my car's warranties expired a few years back ... Honda's and Toyota's run forever  [smile].  I could add it to my insurance policy for a few dollars a month per car ..  Just never got around to it .. Although it would probably be about the same cost as I'm paying to AAA ...  I do see your point..  Maybe I'll call my insurance guy to compare which is always fun  [crying]       

 Do they still offer those hard copy maps - "TripTiks?"

Hi Bob

I still use .. Mainly its peace of mind for roadside service for my Family.  Roadside service can be very dangerous...  I travel for work plus have kids out state at college so it has come in handy ... Everyone in my family knows to call AAA if roadside service or battery jump is needed.  Plus it can be used with other people too as long as a card member is present... It cost me less than $200 per year for 5 person membership ...   - Chris

 Hey Chris,

 Gotcha on the roadside assistance, but isn't that provided by your insurance company and/or by your car's warranty?

You did the right thing by sending me your email address via a PM.

Your plans are on the way.

 I posted this on one of the car forums I frequent, but I thin it's a good question to post here also.

 When I first started driving - way back in the late 60's, I remember being a member of the Automobile Association of America (AAA). They were pretty popular and had physical offices where you can go in and discuss trip plans and they would give you these hard copy maps with an outline for your destination and suggested stop overs and hotel discounts,etc besides the very important roadside assistance. I know they offer roadside assistance today, but really in this age in internet reservations, NAV systems in your car and on your phone as well as roadside assistance being a given under the car's warranty and/or by your insurance company, has AAA become an anachronism or is it still useful today?

Thank you to all who gave food safe warnings. I had already figured that the oil might no be safe. Y'all reinforced my thoughts. I had not thought of extra wear and tear to cutlery. I think those scraps of Ipe will sit and rest in my barn for a while longer.

One of these two joins were made with my new Festool TS55, the other was hand planed, can anyone spot which is which?
To say I’m well pleased with my latest tool is a massive understatement.
Thanks guys, your recommendations were spot on.

Hello do you get good results with your incra ? are your cuts totally square with long cuts ?
I'd like to see , if possible, more details on how your side table is linked to the main table. Have you had problems with misalignment (parallel) with the side table ?
