Sadly, that miter gauge is no longer available. I mentioned that I felt bad for even talking about it because it isn't sold anymore, but it's such a great design. I wish someone would make a similar miter gauge again.

Thanks for listening (and watching in this case).

I tried to find any kind of info. on the Angle Right Miter Gauge you mentioned. Can't find a thing on it. Do I have the company name correct? Any links to something online would be appreciated. Thanks.

rupps rupps writes: I wish I could listen to this but the audio volume is just too low. I have the volume on my computer maxed out, same on the video insert.

I really got some good info. from "On The Pod". Wish I could hear this one.

lfkerby lfkerby writes: Just left a 5 star and review in iTunes (you wont find me anywhere near Facebook either). I've tried since the beginning to do the audio only, but keep finding myself here to watch the episodes after listening. The whiteboard diagrams and views of project pieces just don't translate audibly.

So what is the plan for the visual content?

It always was annoying and seemingly unnecessary to have to wait to the following Monday to have it posted.

As far as keeping the 'ship' going - maybe emphasize these posta and or emails.

I will NEVER sign up for Facebook - nor iTunes. Sorry.
