You are most welcome and never forget, I will most likely always be the "go to" guy on learning quickly what NOT to do.

I have to confess, I asked my 14 yr old son to unpack and set up the computer, etc while the rest of the crew and I were installing new LED lighting throughout the shop. He never asked for my assistance and I never got in his way. He was also finished much sooner than we were.

Trust me.....the fun will begin and increase weekly, at times daily, and the newbie stress will lessen directly proportional to the increase in enjoyment. So unpack, let the chips fly and the fun begin!

Um....you read 43 page long manuals in the bathroom? I hope you are a speed reader or have more bathrooms than people in your house

And yes, that is a good reference manual for new folk.

Manuals don't often get to the "library"....it's a figure of speech in my wacko mind. But catalogs do...if ya gotta hang out for awhile, you might as well shop for more tools!

Sorry, Jim....just good natured harrasment. I about spit my drink out when I read your post. It just made me laugh out loud. And I concur on “shopping for new tools”

We now return this thread to its original thought process........
