Many years ago my father was a salesman for a liquor wholesaler and he sold enough "Jack" to win a trip to Lynchburg TN. and a tour of the distillery. They presented him with the deed to 1 square inch of land. I intend to build a very small house.

Funny, Laphroaigh (my fave Islay whiskey) did (do?) something similar: you’re deeded a patch of land on the island, measuring one foot square (which is 144 times what the Jack people ‘give away’…) and when visiting you get the free loan of a pair of wellingtons to wear when inspecting your land & upon return a dram of Laphroaigh (my guess that Scots being Scots, a dram is a minute amount of fluids).

OT: take care to stay away from the ‘limited edition’ and ‘special barrel’ stuff — way overpriced and of uneven quality; there is a lot of shady stuff going on with the likes of Pappy’s.

Hi All!

does anyone know what has happened to Timothy? I had mail contact with him some month ago but after I transferred the money he is not answering mail anymore. Also he is not updating his homepage anymore?
Does anyone know an alternative source to purchase his plans?

Best regards,
Arne

Given that the MW1000 is so like Timothy's creation he may have other priorities.

Having now had a play with the new toys i thought id post a few "real" pics.
Will certainly be a useful bit of kit to thos who generate large volumes of dust and is pretty robust and well thought out as usual, we are flooring specialists so will be putting them to test with some serious dust generating machines.. ;D ;D

Hi,

just joined having purchased the plans yesterday, looking forward to getting started. I'm also looking to adapt the MFTC into a portable router table / table saw trolley ... :D

Also just wanted to point out that, in mainland Europe, August is traditionally the summer holiday season. This might explain Tim's absence. He might be on his hols.

Perhaps Lee Valley have finally conquered the bendy track challenge that allows the saw to go around corners !

Maybe this is the beginning of the annual Lee Valley April Fools Day joke!   [eek]

When it comes to pranks, it's all about the long game for maximum satisfaction.  [tongue]

It must be me....

But someone please enlighten me why this is preferred to using the fence at a 45 angle and referencing from the "inside" of the mitre?
This works for me every time without any issues....

(Attachment Link)

Your method registers to the obtuse angle, or inside of the miter. The OP’s method registers to the acute angle, or outside of the miter. One may be preferable over the other based on differing circumstances.

Beer?  Any will do, and too many will certainly make you forget the brand!
