      AmazonSmile   05/02/2018

      AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.  Every item available for purchase on Amazon is also available on Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price.  It will ask you what charity you want to support; you can search for the International Guild of Miniature Artisans, and then select it.

      Goodsearch/Goodshop   05/02/2018

      When you use goodsearch.com or goodshop.com as your search engine, they will give money to charity every time you shop or search. Instead of www.google.com (or Bing, Yahoo, Safari, etc.) use www.goodsearch.com. If using for the first time, there's a place on the top middle right of the screen to designate the cause you want to support. IGMA will get the credit for every search from this browser. If you want to shop, click on the top left of the screen and search for the online store you want to buy from. If that vendor participates, click on their link and their software keeps track of what you buy.

Don't have a lot of space for your power tools?

I was fortunate to get a piles of Fine Woodworking, Woodsmith and Shop Notes Magazines for $4 a pile recently at auction so we have been reading and ripping out items of interest...  A member in our unimat forum passed this along, and I thought this is interesting as I have been studying options to set up my own corner of my basement...

The one thing that confuses me about mounting saws underneath the top, (jig saw & circular saw) that the author indicates in his post, is the direction of the blades correct?  I switched my motor leads on my taig lathe, when I mounted my motor's pulley in the opposing direction, so the spindle would run the proper way...  This is a nice space saving concept, but I'm not convinced this is the setup for me... but I would love to have the preac mounted for a larger table that would facilitate ripping nice long  boards and a table underneath those cuts...

I'm looking forward to your comments.
