The number was called, the location found.
Total out of pocket expense - $10
Total time elapsed - 2 hours
Found was an 18" Starrett combination square blade
(I have extra heads for this very reason).
The Wall of Starrett is closer to being completed.
the head droops, the arm goes slack, the tourniquet
drops to the floor as the mind is enveloped in a light
haze of rust...
hell, those sour grapes aren't coming from me! I just had to say
SOMETHING to get you to respond! You didn't weigh in on either of the
two "plan" threads so I thought I'd draw you out of your shell in this
one. How the hell are you? :)

Hey Duke, I have a few of those thing also. Last summer I picked up a
Starret Planer Gage for use in setting up the shaper.
The Plans are finished and construction starts in the spring of 2004.
Yup, that's me. I've been working on the plans for a great big woodworking
project. poke your browser over to the following URL's and have a peek. As
you can see in the views from the South and East, I took your advice and
incorporated an entrance to the basement directly from the great outdoors.

Drawing up those plans has sure been an education in the fine art of
Next week I will mill the pieces of the balustrade on the porches. Then, I
have to order the stock for the doors and jambs. That should keep me busy
until next spring, when I am going to load all the pieces of the project
into a container for shipment to the construction site in early summer.
I'm only $150,000 away from having a shop entrance from the
garage. That figure also gets me lumber storage and a
finish room and increases the present day 650sf shop/150sf

Funny how sometimes you can understand things by working the
concept through your head and other things you know onna
'count of you've been there, done that but didn't get to
lick the bowl afterwards.
Nice catch. You suck. Yada, yada, yada... Your daughter ought to really enjoy
these tools, as well as the memories of the hunt.
Considering the single minded persistance of the search for the entire Starrett
catalogue at garage sale prices, I've always wondered just a little about the
tenor of the prehunt moments in the Keeter household. When you find an ad that
are the preparations for the hunt refined and genteel like an English fox hunt.
Or do you get a maniacal gleem in you eyes, turn to your dimwitted rodent
lackey and say, "Pinky, are you pondering what I am pondering?"

Now you understand why I didn't just go out and plunk down
$50 on a brand new one? 'Sides, this one has a *user's
mark*. Can't get that from Ann "Action Jackson" Rockler..
Once upon a time it involved the donning of the Carhartt
shirt (a 10ish oz. cotton, color (colour David) green,
catalog no. S09ASP) and a handful of Jolly Ranchers in the
cup holder of the Jeep (top down dependent on the season).
Check for glasses, the good ones for seeing close up, the
MagLite (small one/fits in pocket). A quick visit to
MapQuest to insure no additional time was spent wandering
and then it was up and onward. These days the hunt is few
and far between and more designed for results as time is
There was once an imaginary friend I used to take with me
named Billy (age 10). I was teaching him the ways. His
imaginary parents had an imaginary restraining order issued
against me so I guess there was a wee bit of Pinky going on.
OBWW: The Carhartt was bought at Highland Hardware. This
was the visit when I met His Royness and he autographed my
Galoot cap. That was the same day I met His Normness and
the same day he autographed my Galoot cap.
