    Jig, I work as a mech. design engineer and in my professional opinion, I'd consider putting a 6" to 8" spacer on the jet pack. Either that, or make sure that suit is fire and heat resistant!
    Will do, Mr. Wizard.
    Not a problem. I just don't want you to burn your azz off


    I should have noticed the possibility of scorched azz when I looked at the brochure.

    Yeah, the jet pack was obviously not designed by Dr. Emmet Brown!

    Newsflash:

    So I tell my father-in-law about my cornhole project that I wanted to start this weekend
    and he goes and builds himself a set without telling anyone. He said he'll probably paint
    them buckeye colors, but maybe I can talk him into having a browns themed board/bags
    for him and a Steelers themed board/bags for me.

    I'm still going to build a set for my house.

    we ever have a boy, I'm definitely turning that pink jeep into a SteelerMobile.

    As far as a Steelers themed project for myself, I was having discussions yesterday
    about building a corn hole board. But since I'm the most unhandy person in the
    history of the world, and have no tools, I'm going to have to recruit some help.

    Will Lowe's or Home Depot cut the wood to my specifications? If they do,
    I shouldn't have any problems until I need to cut the hole, then I'll have to
    find someone with a jigsaw.
    I'm not sure about Lowe's but I've seen people getting wood (and even ceramic tile) cut by the "pros" :P at Home Depot. As far as the hole goes, if you're not that familiar with using a jigsaw, jiga , I'd recommend buying or renting a hole saw. I'm not 100% sure Home Depot rents hole saws but I wouldn't doubt it. Its basically a huge bit for your drill and makes cutting perfect holes so much easier. If you've never seen one, here is what it looks like:


    As a Lowes Employee, they will cut the wood for you. Knowing my people though, they'll complain like hell about it LOL.

    Now as far as the holes go, your out of luck. You can get a jig saw pretty cheap though and they come in handy. Just drill a samll hole with a drill bit to get started and then use the jig saw to do the rest.

    Piece of cake.

    Don't cut the holes too big, jiga.... That defeats the purpose.... Here's some helpful info on the intrinsics of the game....
