Good luck with your projects and if you have any questions about it, pm me.
I did it because (as Mike said) this is a forum, a gathering place for many. It just seemed to me for you to invite someone to a private party via a PM was a little self-centered as if to say the rest of us didn't know anything.

I wasn't asking you to PM yourself...that would be stupid. But then...so is shanghaiing our customers.

Just a heads up-no harm intended.

Hey Bud no biggie.

I wanted the op to pm me about the mame cabinet because i wasn't sure people here cared about an arcade machine.

If you guys want, I can post pics of mine and do a how-to on it. It is a really cool thing to add to any "man cave" for a low price.

Thanks for the great replies....I think a jigsaw or sander will be next on the list. Now it's just a matter of my time to utilize these tools..not much spare time here lately

My advice is don't get a cheap jigsaw. I don't have a lot of experience with them but I bought a fairly inexpensive one from the Big Box Store and it works great but the alignment marks etc are useless. I basically use it freehand and eyeball everything followed up by planing and sanding.

Hi have only one idea to help.
Go to your local library and get a few books about how to make sure your saw is cutting square I have a Radio Arm Saw and when I ran the blade out it was off 1/4 "
I adjusted the arm just a nitch and I was right on things started fitting like a pro did the work.
Watch for kick backs they hurt big time.

Books are free at your local library and they have some
dandy ideas of project too.

PS There is this idea we don't need libraries any more.
If you don't use it we will lose it.
