I like it. Makes me want to make something out of aluminium now

He's got some nice tools in his garage. I miss having a man cave. I had two before I went waterside.
I am looking forward to the rest actually as you can apply the building technology to other objects. What exactly? I haven't figured out yet but I keep telling myself I can make something. Maybe a table top or similar.

damn nice job he's doing of it too by the look of it. yeah I've got a cheap jigsaw like that. the thing shakes like gary glitter on a school bus and cuts a line at varying angles not of your choosing.

I bought one with laser guidance last year, think it was a Silverline. What a load of log. The laser was not even lined up with the cutting
