1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    What is the recommended thickness for a steel patterning board? We already have one at the club, but about 10 years ago or so someone decided to drill half a dozen deer slugs into it, rendering it unusable. I would like to get a new piece of steel to act as a "skin", to put over top of the existing plate and give it a new, smooth surface. I would like to go as thin as possible, to reduce costs.

    You could use a 1/8" plate with no problem, especially if you are going to use it as a skin over the old board. jmho.

    Go to your local scrap yard and tell them the size you need. Most yards will have all kinds of steel plate laying around. Ten minutes with a catting torch, and they will bring it to you. It may be 1/8" or 1/2", but it will be cheap.
