5 bucks it seems. He cuts with a dovetail bit for grooves and sliders.
Also sells Jacobs' ladders, little boats, climbing monkeys and other things
which make the parents feel good about dropping some dollars.
At our shows, nothin'. We'd just pack'em up at the end of the day and stuff
them back into storage along with everything else. Nobody buys nothin'
around here. Buncha damn cheapskates. We've lost our ass on the last
three shows, but I still can't convince SWMBO to give it up and go get a
second job at Burger King if she wants a little extra money.

Hasn't anybody seen a wham-a-dilly before? They're for
grinding smoke. And they do it really well. They're often
found accompanied by a left handed wind tester and
sometimes a left handed screw driver.
Around here it's known as a smoke grinder. Used for clearing the air when I
do much thinking:-)
Actually if you lengthen the arm and attach a router to the end it can be
used to cut oval table tops. Yep I've done it. Or just stick aa pencil in
the end for drawing an oval.
let's see think it was 24 x 40 inches. Used a piece of MDF about 14 inches
square and routed the dovetail channels in it. Handle was your basic router
trammel. To use Find bouth centerlines on your blank and attach base with
the corners on the centerlines basically centering it in the balnk. I used
carpet tape to hold it in place, but hot melt glue or some small nails would
work. Place one key at junction of the dovetail slots and position router
at the end of your major axis, 20" in my case as that's have of the forty.
We are talking center poit of the router bit. Run screw loosely through
trammel . move router to minor axis, 12 inches in my case and run screw
loosely through trammel into key at the junction. You've now set the size
of the oval to be cut. Now rout the oval out in shallow passes. Oh yeah
watch where your router cord is or you might lose power. DAMHIKT :-D
"Success with roouters: Techniques & Tips" From the Handymans Library has
two oval cutting machines in it on page 171. Yep I admit it Thaat's put out
by the Handyman Club of America. There are a few of us on the wreck.
: Looks like the jigs you build to draw ovals.
Except this one has no provision for varying the length of the x or y
I think it's a timeuserdoohickeythingamabob. Keps kids and wayward
adults amused for an unbounded period of time.
