-     * This week's helpful hint is from "Top Tipsfrom 2017 in MAKE Magazine +    Doing multiple "same-sizecuts on the table saw (e.g. cutting 50 matching  plaques). Use the Rocklear sled with a stopper block and a hold down. This will give you the same size piece, time after time.   
-         * Add Color To Your Laser Engraving: On the YouTube channel, Laser Wood Minnesota, they offer this great tip for coloring fine-detail laser engraving. Use a dye meant for coloring epoxy (such as TransTint), mixed with denatured alcoholIt’s easy to apply and you simply wipe the surface clean which leaves only the deeper engraved surfaces with dye in them.+       * This is now part of the woodshop training. Any questions, see Woodshop trainer Bill R in the woodshop immediately following the meeting.
