Well, you won't hurt my feelings if you take this job. I don't really have
a drill press. I have one of those things Sears sells that holds a drill.
It is not NEAR as good as a drill press. But, it is somewhat better than
complete freehand. However, my offer still stands.

I agree Stooge Curly. I mentioned to Paul once that he should get a few
extra next time he does 800 panels and hold them back from silkscreen. I
am passing on the 940 as I don't plan to ever need 1/8" or bananas. But,
then every time I think about DIY jobs, each one seems different. So,
maybe he could hold back some 800s before silkscreen ONLY for those who
said "I'll take one."

BTW, I would take one.
