General Friendly Chat / Re: Serious as a Heart Attack
« Last post by adcolor on Today at 12:03 PM »
FWIW, your local hospital (or other public oriented health program; we even have a couple of news stations that compete with a community health program) may offer occasional heart calcium CT scan for a reduced price/promotion.  No pain, just a walk in and get under the machine (pretty much integrated into a modern X ray machine).   Too easy to not get once in a while -- even if it only gives you a baseline for blockage oriented heart problems (it is not a replacement for EKGs, etc, but an additional tool).   For you guys & gals that think "I'm too young to worry about it". 

Now to implement improvements in my own life (not sure why it's a 'style'); aerobics, get on board with my PT (see him more than my MD) for aches and pains from poor body use/patterns, lower my A1C (fyi, that's the insulin resistance -diabetic- calculation diagnostic).    Don't under estimate the value of a good PT; way smarter than a gym rat, not a lot more money.  Plus, they know the results of the local ortho's when you need one; and whom they can work with afterwards.  Teaming.

Happy Birthday by the way!

Festool Jigs & Tool Enhancements / Re: MFT 90* Square

The setup block is 1" x 2" x 3", and they are precision grounded and hardened. 0.0003" flatness and 0.0002/inch squareness was the spec.

Do you have a picture of that block? Any more info?

Thanks

I should have read through to the end. Congrats on your maker. We've used the Bonavita 1800 (replaced by the 1900). One button, nothing else.  Just makes coffee.  Insulated carafe.  The newer model is way cheaper than the old one.  Insulated carafe is ok, but with two different coffees to brew (unleaded vs leaded) we also bought a thermos (vacuum glass) carafe.   

The real issue is that the cone filter seam requires folding it over.  Not a big deal, but an RTFM detail.  Maybe that's an issue for other brands too.  No idea. It is definitely better coffee than the previous Krups we had (wasn't bad -- this was definitely better).

Not connoisseur enough to require the <5% (to me) improvement of bean vs ground (presuming both are fairly fresh). Big cans will not be fresh over the course of using it up, and are usually of only medium quality at best. This coffee maker brings the quality up significantly for anything other than top notch coffee.  Not a knock, but great coffee and an upper quality unit gets harder to tell the difference in the end result (across coffee maker brands; like using a Mafell & Festool track saw -- takes a lot to get a debatable increase in quality).   For me, it's the difference a great maker gives to medium/low upper $ coffee.

No modification needed. Note that these are the "Stanley replacement" blades, so they are thinner. But that does not make a difference. You will need to move the frog forward a little to close up the mouth, if you like it that way. I use a closed up chipbreaker, and the mouth then needs to be slightly wider than if the chipbreaker was not used (otherwise the chipbreaker will close off the mouth).

Good point.  I always say - lower your expectations and you will never be disappointed.

Mmm, sushi.  I do love me some sushi!

I have PM-V11 blades in my LN #3 and LN #4 1/2.

Hey Derek I also have the #3 & #4 1/2, will the Veritas blades directly fit the LN planes, or did you have to modify them?
