    On Wednesday and Thursday we had some storms, so on Friday I figured there would be tree branches littering the streets. Instead, I found, lying in the street, what is pictured below.

    Kansas City... where it rains band saws. It works just fine.

    ^ we should get together and go tool hunting! Perhaps scroll saws and oscillating sanders sprout up like mushrooms?
    If it starts raining power tools around your house, I'm coming over! :D

    Will, it's obviously already raining power tools at my home so come on over! Bring those mushrooms, too... We may need to chew some to see what we want to see...

    Seriously, Raul, it was lying in the street. I have a vintage Rockwell band saw packed up for the move so I wasn't in the market for another bandsaw. Also keep this in mind- if the missus looks in the bankbook, the, 'Look what I found!' routine won't work so well and may land you in the doghouse.

    Oh, I have no lack of sandpaper, and yes, I am on the trade- I will be building my first slingshot in 30 years and my first ever natural. I gathered the forks today and did the prepwork.
