    He did not have the aptitude to do this kind of work. Nice guy. Knew a lot of stuff, but just kinda sucked at getting shit done. My first question when I was learning to program was "how do I find...

    Using a mitering bandsaw always seemed like a compromise at 45 degrees. The way a vise holds the material at those angles doesn't work super duper.

    Padded flat rate envelope would be cheapest way to ship. Bulged flat rate box will probably not fly. USPS can be Nazi's about bulged packaging. Luckily they have many options.
