    x10003q, I appreciate the discourse with you. Many good points.

    I do think you are correct, about the first thing that I would have done is change out the old lift. Well, maybe not first, but...

    I think the biggest advantage that Arctaris has is similar to when the Libra Foundation took over Black Mountain in Maine. They had deep enough pockets that they didn't need to worry about paying...

    That happens when the haul rope ices up. Not so much a problem detaching, but for them to re attach to the icy cable, that's the issue.

    I hadn't considered the added cost of maintenance of a HSQ. Again, hoping for the best, and certainly, the HSQ id very attractive to newbies.

    I'd be up for that if they post a work day, preferably mid week, but I'd do a weekend as well.

    I like that Saddleback will be up and running again and all they are doing.

    The premise of the fire blocking is that buildings used to be balloon framed. Basically, they'd stand up the walls 2 or 3 stories high, and then nail the floor joists to the face of the studs. Back...

    That is exactly what they did, and they would often cut it themselves, no help. I kinda just walked away, not wanting to see it or distract them. The table saws used were basically 20" by 30".

    Looks like that sled works well. Again, just my $0.02, but that looks big and unwieldy to me. But as I have said, it needs to work for the person using it, not me.

    I likethat. Many folks use a sliding miter saw that cuts wider boards easily, full 1X12's. Of course they cost more than the little ones that cut only 6". (I have one of each).

    I'd say it's not. For example, how do you do a combination miter cut on a 16' piece of crown molding? It's real easy on a miter saw. Not saying it can't be done on a table saw, I've seen people do...

    Basically, but I have also worked with folks who would ignore a miter saw right next to them and use the table saw. It's what they know how to run, and either haven't learned how to use a power miter...

    Home projects are getting done with abandon. Maintenance, repairs, spring yard work. Just itching for something to do. I make a list, and each item leaves me finding 1 or 2 more that need doing.
