    It's that time of year when we make and then promptly break resolutions. Let 2017 be different! Planning to build (or finish) a new project this winter? Looking to make something new with your existing machine? Perhaps you are REALLY going to do a big cleanup in your workshop (don't forget to post your extra parts in our FREEStore forum). Post your goals for this year and let's nudge each other along.​

    What's your New Year's Resolutions? :cool:

    How about getting the ball rolling by filling us in on your build resolutions for the new year?:)

    I understand that cats are pretty popular these days! I'd like to see some more builds, educational quick hits, and some fun ideas that are still in dream mode. No builds personally...I don't think. I'll leave that to you pros!

    Fair enough. And oh, I believe the word you are looking for there is "enthusiasts".

    My near term goals involve posting three builds. Two of them, a back coping jig for crown molding and a V-Slot router template guide are not much of a stretch as they are merely down to organizing and formatting for posting. But the third, finishing my two year plus Ox build is the one resolution I need to put the most focus on and stop allowing other projects to jump ahead in line.

    My resolution is to ditch the clunky parallel port interface on my XL build for that super hot new OB controller that was coming out.

    Any news on that ?

    I was going to buy myself a Christmas present but it didn't show.

    My resolution is to finish all the little things that I have left to do on all my builds. They are all functional, but need a few details finished. I have a bad habit of moving on to another project once I know the current one is functional.
