Redesign, Angle Formula and Blades

The New Look

Last issue we rolled out a whole new look for the eZine, prompting this comment. – Editor

“The new look is fantastic. Keep up the good work, and thanks.” – Leslie Bauer

Thanks, Les, but what do the rest of you think? Any comments, one way or the other? – Editor

What’s Your Angle?

“A question in the recent eZine asked about measuring and laying out angles for polygons. Perhaps the reader would benefit from the formula b = 180 – (360/n), where n is the number of sides and b is the interior angle of a regular polygon. If you’re cutting wood to glue together, for making a bowl, pillar or frame, the edges would be cut at b/2, or 90 – (180/n).” – Scott Noyes

Thanks, Scott. That is indeed a helpful formula. – Editor

Forrest Blades

“I couldn’t agree more with Rob’s and Michael’s comments in the Web Surfer’s Review on Forrest blades. I’ll give eight blades away to the first taker, but I won’t give up my Forrest. Cheap screwdrivers, wrenches and chisels have taught us all many lessons. Keep up the great work. I enjoy your magazine.” – Bob Dahlke

Thanks, Bob. We enjoy your kind comments. – Editor

Typo Corner

“I know I can do it by trial and erow.”

Now, that’s ironic. – Editor
