The home alone thing has caused me to mess around in my garage workshop.  At the risk of losing some of my fingers I have made a compass rose.  I really needed that like I needed a paper ass but it was better than going stir crazy.

As a geritric dummy I have never tried to post a picture or image on this forum. The instructions on the "how to section" are clear enough.  If this does not work I will try again with a different method.

I would like to see it. The free Imgur service works well for me, so you could try it.

OK I will try again..................but I ain't giving up if it fails.



Maybe four or five more tries and I will figure it out.

Icarus, to post an image you need to add a / to the last [/img], like this:

Alternatively, you can click on the Image button, which is this one:



That button is a shortcut to the code so you don't have to type it. Much faster and easier.  ;D Just paste the url of the image in and you're all set!

Thank you for your patience and help.

The new format has found me even less capable.  For example: I can reply only in the quick reply box.  The screen that xSP shows, above, is not accessible to me (unless I get some more instruction). There are no buttons to select with the quick reply box. Duh!

Tank somehow found the picture I was trying to post.  The thing that I built is merely an assortment of wood pieces, Red cedar and white pine. Scraps from my wood pile.  The Trigonometry was fun to tinker with.

The other ongoing project in my workshop is a one meter long radio controlled boat.  It is a model of a racing dinghy.  I have been on a yearlong joint design experiment with  Justinas Rubinovas, my young friend in Lithuania.  I do have considerable experience with naval architecture concepts and have designed and built many boats over the years.  The model is to determine how much sail power we need to apply to cause the boat to plane.  That is a whole other ballgame.  I will try to post some pictures of that project.............if I ever learn to do it correctly.

Once again. Thank you for all the kind help.
