Literary Clock Made From E-reader
To: audreyobscura & SchermpjeTake a look at http://www.hilltopperbikes.com for a system that mounts the motor in the front wheel. Let me say, one problem with putting the motor in the REAR wheel is that that location eliminates the ability to peddle while using the motor. If you order a Hilltopper system; if you type the code randallober in the coupon box and I can get a referral fee :-)

A question that has been bothering me about this project: I assume you must be quite accurate when cutting out the pieces; this being said, does it matter whether you cut to the outside of the lines thus leaving the lines on the pieces; or do you cut to the inside of the lines and remove them?
When I made my first insert, I traced the outline of the metal insert that came with the saw. If you leave the line when you cut it to shape, a little judicious sanding will give you that exact fit you want. While you're at it, Make about a half dozen or so to use with your dado blade, too.
How about once you have the angle cut on the top of one leg, take a piece of thin plywood (or other thin material) and trace and cut the profile of the leg on the ply (duplicating the taper) and just use it to layout the cut lines on the other three legs for this sawhorse and to make more legs for more sawhorses.
