I thought rabbit feet came from radial arm saws
So sad you mentioned that, I bought a used Craftsman Radial Arm saw about 10 years ago. Nice with the sturdy table and cabinet on rollers. It was a steal at the price and worked great. When I got it home and plugged it into my old home electrical system it blew the fuse (yes, fuse not breaker) and so I put a new one in and blew that one. So I checked amperage on saw and fuse and was pleased that I had the right 20 amps needed. So why was it happening? The saw motor uses so much (or more) of that 20 amps getting the blade to speed it always blows. It's been a storage unit since, waiting for the day we upgrade our electrical box and wires and.... ;)

Question... anyone want to buy a radial arm saw? :lol: jk (someday, I will use this damn thing)

Do you lot know how dangerous hot wire and power tools are in the paws of rabbits!?
No opposable thumbs, even scissors are a two rabbit operation.

Not sure where the notion of a 'Lucky Rabbits Foot' came from but we could at least make some profit from the catastrophic results we have had.

I prefer to make things I can not get. We can still lobby in favor of forest banks.

The scatter pieces will do this nicely already.

But we want banks too, so much so in fact that if they don't do forest banks we will go for extra cavern banks, as with a green wash and maybe some greenstuff roots will look pretty good.

Though we are trying to see if we can get our entire table covered with tiles without the need for banks - time for the spreadsheets to come out.

Ac ouple of ruined CBS houses, a ruined Tower or two will help fill in some gaps

Honestly, if I had to, I'd be happy with a river that didn't even use banks. Just place escarpments on a water tray - there'd be a slightly unnatural angular look to it but it feels like it would basically work.

Why I'd really need them would be that I won't have THAT many escarpments. So if I want a river of any real length, I'd have to eventually use regular forest tiles, and at that point the banks are necessary.

I mainly want forest banks so I can make a pond. Or....That outstanding river.
6 by 6 river tiles would be very nice.
