  1. I know, originality score of zero but winter appears to be departing rather quickly so I got out this morning while it was snowing a bit.  It sadly turned to rain before I was done and has been doing that steadily for the last two hours. Still, much fun was had.

  2. ^^^ Wait, so you drop $1100 tomorrow and you might receive some headphones in November that no one has ever heard before and might come from a company that no longer exists?  Where do I sign up?  I guess I missed when DROP became kickstarter but I admittedly have stayed out of all of this.

    Glad we are still on the router topic.

    I need to use the 3/4” bit to routerize grooves for T Tracks. Better to set it on the table and run it along the fence or set up the Festool router to run along the track saw track for cutting these grooves?

    I'd want to be in a position where I was holding the router, not the workpiece.  You need down pressure to ensure you're getting the right depth of cut and that puts your hands in a bad position if something goes wrong with the router table.  Basically I try to never be pushing my hands toward the cutting thingy and maybe one of the work holding doohickys that Doug linked to fixes that but that's my 2¢.

  4. While everyone here might have owned one at some point the simple fact is that they failed to become a mass-market supplier and I'd guess that the Beats/Apple consortium has a huge market share compared to anyone else.  Christ, I own a pair of Beats and while audiophilically (new word, yay) flawed, they do the job they were intended to do better than anything else I tried. I found myself wishing this weekend that they made an active noise cancelling version of mine (the Powerbeats Pro) as they would be a home run for those of us that cannot wear the airpods.

    But yes, I agree, this is sucky news for those of us that have bought, owned, and still own Senn's products.

    Yeah, the Jessem lift is so Purty I do not want it caked up with dust.

    I use a straight edge to line the bearing with the fence, so it is technically being used, just no reason that I can come up with to not use the fence.

    My 2¢, the fence is likely to cause accuracy and repeatability issues but I, like Naaman, welcome its use as a dust collection element so I usually leave it backed off just a touch to make sure that I'm getting solid contact with the bearing on the bit.  I've definitely had to run pieces through multiple times when dust built up along the fence or a little chip of wood got in the way.

  6. I'll swap the wheels this weekend for the ones with the studded tires already mounted on them, but the COVID hardtail project is complete(ish).  I probably need new brake pads but I'll deal with honky brakes for a little while.

  7. Another 3-6" of snow headed my way early next week. Storms of that size can roll in all they want since they're manageable, just spare me the foot+ nonsense and I'll keep quiet.
