Marc just finished up installing his Nordfab ductwork in the new shop.
Matt is still busy playing with his new Precious: a beautiful SawStop cabinet saw! Check out his unboxing video.

Great show guys. I was finaly able to hear this by clicking on the download MP3 link (there is a several minute delay before the show starts playing). The streaming player controls directly above this link shows up as just a grey box with no controls. This is the case for all the WTOR episodes on this site, but not on Matt’s or Shannon’s websites. Given Matt and Shannon are no longer replicating the WTOR episodes on their sites, appreciate if you could look into the streaming controls here. Keep up the good work.


Hi Mark. I checked back on this WTOR #105 episode and the streaming player controls now are a grey box with the words “Download File” in white letters. These words are a link to WT_105.ogg file which my browser/computer don’t know how to open. I am running XP and IE8 (an old desktop computer). Same thing on Windows7 IE8. Thanks for looking into it.
