It's a pizza oven used in bars -- particularly good for pizza bagels, box pizza, texas toast, mini-quiches, samosas -- all those stinky high fat foods which go great with a beer.

You must apply clear paint to your copper after brushing it... clear polyurethane will do a good job.

Forstner bit:

Click the image to open in full size.

Cutting oil or alcohol and a drill press. Drill a pilot hole for the Forstner bits tip first.

Default Soldering Iron

Heres a quick tip.

My Weller soldering iron station burnt out about 4 years ago.

I simply replaced it with a Dell Laptop charger.

Works like a charm. As an added bonus, I can use it anywhere in the world now - 240VAC in Euroland, 100VAC here in Japan and wherever else they send me next.

Default Circular saw table attachment

When a piece is thicker I do two or three runs to complete the cut. Don't forget about the safety glasses.
Can ytou tell me the make and model of the saw table and where I can get one? It looks like something I can use with my wormdrive saw.
