Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Those are for screwing it down to a piece of MDF to make a duplicate template, and keeping the stewmac template as your master. I have had bearings seize up, or lift causing my bit to destroy what I was working on along with my acrylic template. Using a thicker wood or MDF template helps negate that problem.
