I saw this tool in operation and after all the years that I have been exposed to the table saw dangers this product impressed me the most.  I think it would be of benifit for all of us to watch this in operation and it is reasonable in price as well.  Much better than any push stick or…

Jay, Thanks for the wonderful comment.  It was a little tedious at times.  But I think that is what makes a project turn out to what a person wants.  Have a good day.  George

Hi Jay, I hope your getting better I sure do miss reading your replies to other peoples posts. I'm going to be launching a web site soon, gonna try to sell some pens on the internet. I'm working on getting an inventory built up. I have about 35 done so far and all my freinds and family think I could sell them online. I have sold a few of them all ready to people I know. The mountain house is keeping pretty busy also. It is a shame there is a couple thousand miles between us, I would think it would be great to sit down and have a beer or two.

Your freind on the east coast, Ray

 Dear Jay,

 I hope you return to normal soon. I think of you often hoping I can chat with you this summer or when you feel better from your shingles. My shed is coming along. Take care,
