Funny part is I've been trying to figure out how to build a roller for outfeed stock on my tablesaw instead of buying them.

Funny how our minds work.

Nice job Mud!

Its sort of fun to see these posts from a year ago! I dont think she put 10 miles on that damned roller I built. This year I'm getting her a 50lb bag of sunflower seeds and some corn, she can sit inside and watch the feeders...Its the thought that counts I guess, luckily theres not too much thought effort in buying a bag of birdfeed as opposed to building up a set of these coccamamie rollers....

Looking back and reflecting, I saved myself $220 of beer money last year, and this year I can set my mind to more creative usage!


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.

It's amazing what a beer can do.

But seriously, ingenious idea.
