Receiving started off with Sage Integration

All goods in the Sage accounting variety have the capability to bring into and out of the accounting system, which tends to make integration extremely feasible. At the entry degree there is Sage Instant and Line fifty that have a proprietary facts storage format but do offer you a software program developer kit (SDK) and an ODBC driver. The mid array Sage two hundred solution and the substantial-end Sage one thousand option both make use of Microsoft SQL Server (MSSQL) which can facilitate the motion of info in and out supplying you know which furniture keep which data! So the possibilities for each and every merchandise are;

Sage (Sections) fifty

Line sixty really ships with a study-only ODBC driver. So you can use this driver to export information from Sage fifty into, for instance, Excel or into a third celebration/bespoke application. This has admittance to all the platforms that Sage 40 makes use of but there is no guidance in terms of what facts is wherever, normally the table name does reflect the info that it merchants but there is no documentation on the ‘data model’.

If you need to get facts into Series 50 then you can either use one of the import routines in the product which are excellent for static facts this sort of as customers and suppliers but a little bit restricted with transactional information, these kinds of as not being in a position to import product sales and buy orders. Moreover the Sage 50 SDK permits the creating of info into the databases and will take care of updating the needed tables. The genuine format of the facts is not identified for sure but I feel it to be some old btrieve type document storage method. Making use of the ODBC driver with an SQL query instrument is ok for fundamental queries but it soon struggles with multi-table joins. There is a no cost application offered known as Sage fifty Explorer which lets you see the facts in any table.

Sage two hundred (and Sage two hundred Suite which is financials plus CRM)

Sage 200 employs MSSQL so it is effortless to extract information. On the other hand there are numerous furniture and it can be battle without the facts model. Sage does create a info model definition document but this is only offered to registered Sage developers. The table names are pretty descriptive of the facts they maintain so a excellent developer could get to what they have to have. Sage suggest using the Sage two hundred SDK for writing info back which tends to make sense as it calls for care of updating the pertinent ledgers and carrying out the double entry postings. You can put data straight into the platforms (unsupported by Sage and harmful until you actually know what you are doing).

Sage Series 500/Sage 1000

Sage Series 500/one thousand does have an API which is pretty limited for getting information into the system. There is an aged regimen known as tetralink which also makes it possible for fundamental info import and there is a 3rd celebration device with templates which allows particular data to be uploaded through Excel.

The information model in Sage 1000 is massive and the legacy of the information model is that it applied to be an older btrieve flat file method and currently even even though it resides inside of MSSQL there is no referential integrity, principal or foreign keys defined in the information. Add to that there are 1800+ furniture all 8-10 characters in length (hardly descriptive!) and no documentation.

Tips For Artists, How To Prepare Your Own Panels For Painting

Personally, I prefer painting on a hard surface so I am addressing how to prepare a panel for painting.

I will discuss hardboard, MDF, particle board, plywood and cardboard, and I am only discussing rigid panels right now, we can discuss canvas, papers etc some other time.

First I will discuss the materials, then their preparation:

For smaller work I prefer “Masonite” [ironically the Masonite company no longer makes “masonite” hardboard] which is a high density hardboard and is made by steam exploding wood into very fine fibers then re-compressing those fibers under very high pressure and heat so that the natural lignin re-bonds the fibers. the problem is that the lignin is acidic and is the material that causes cheap paper like newsprint to turn yellow overnight. There are many grades of these hardboard products, ignore the cheaper ones, currently the better grade in 3mm [1/8 inch] thickness, canvas back, is 11 dollars a 4 x 8 sheet at Home Depot. The 3mm is ok for smaller stuff, the 4 or 5 mm is better for medium sizes but as soon as you get over 16 x 20 this material starts getting pretty heavy.

The Apersan panels are “masonite’ type hardboard with frames made from birch plywood, these are very nice panels!

The ideal hardboard panel is pre-coated with Melamie on both sides and is used in the furniture industry, but it is hard to find.

MDF is medium density fiberboard and is widely available, cheap, and very flat, it is made also by steam exploding wood into fibers but the difference between MDF and masonite is that it is not compressed as much and plastic resins are added as a binder then it is put under heat and pressure. It is widely used in furniture and cabinets. It is not as strong as “masonite” so you are need a thicker panel to start with and thus the end result will be heavier, the other problems are low moisture resistance and the edges are easily damaged. Maya Lin uses MDF in her room sized contoured sculptures, it is actually a very attractive material in its self.

Particle Board, this is often confused with MDF, it is sawdust [not separated fibers] bonded with resins and is very easily damaged and has very little moisture resistance, plus it is heavy, but it is cheap. I see no reason to use this for permanent work and not many reasons to use it at all. It is used in the lowest grade of cabinets.

Cardboard, There are many grades of paperboard, for painting you should find an acid free board, forget anything like poster board which is re-cycled newspaper or other cheap board because it will become brittle very quickly. There used to be materials called Millboard and Upson Board, these were recycled newsprint bases with a top layer of a better grade of paper with a glue sizing. I doubt if these are still made but if they are I don’t recommend them. Corrugated cardboard is light but the flutes will telescope through as you paint unless you are attracted to it’s funky qualities, it is not a good painting support.

If you are using a cardboard, you must gesso both sides, otherwise it will warp badly. Painting on un-prepared board is certainly possible, but be aware that oil paints will degrade paper in a few years and make it brittle, also the paper will soak up the oil and make the paints dull. If you use acrylic paints you avoid the oil to paper degradation issues but be aware that the absorbancy of paper will sometimes dull acrylics. For studies I sometimes use Canvaset paper which is paper with a canvas texture and a glue or gelatin sizing. This is ok but the sizing is a bit to slick in my opinion. If your looking for a cheap support and no prep work then this is probably the cheapest option.

If you are going to properly prepare cardboard it is just as much work as better materials with little difference in the costs of the actual materials, so why bother?

Plywood: My preference second to “masonite” for small work and my first preference for larger work is plywood. Plywood is made of thin veneers of wood, coated with glue, laid perpendicular to each other and pressed together under very high heat and pressure. Various grades have differing levels of strength, stiffness, moisture resistance and warp resistance. I have painted on Luan, Birch and Fir and prefer Luan. For smaller panels 6mm [1/4″] is ok, for larger panels that need a structural frame, I use 3mm [1/8″]. You can make a high quality, light weight, stiff and flat panel in quite large sizes with a bit of work. Top grade fir plywood is very expensive now days, the ordinary stuff would not make a good support since it easily warps, has voids, the texture will telescope when primed, etc etc.

For smaller work, up to 12 x 16 inches or so, that is going to get a decorative frame, you can use 6mm [1/4″] luan without a structural frame, over that size you are going to need a structural frame so you may as well use the thinner and lighter 3mm.

Luan plywood varies widely in quality, I find that the luan panels carried by big box lumber retailers, like Home Depot, are lower quality than what the independents carry. Look around for a wood panel dealer that sells to cabinet makers, they will have better quality materials for about the same or lower price. I recently bought some top quality 3mm luan panels for $8.40 a 4 x 8 sheet.

For making frames for larger panels, I use poplar or top quality pine. Again finding a independent wood dealer that has better quality materials will pay off here. Poplar is available in the big box stores like Home Depot, it is clear and straight and just a bit more than their terrible “select” grade [which 30 years ago would of been used for furring strips]. Which ever wood you use hand select each piece for straightness.

Rip the lumber into 3/4 x 3/4 or 1 inch wide strips, do your best to cut out defects.

To frame a panel, start with a smooth flat table top. Lay your cut to size luan face down [best way to cut luan is with a utility knife and a new blade] Then use wood glue and clamps to glue a perimeter frame onto the edge of the luan. I do two sides at a time, using a 36 x 80 inch flush door as a table top, the luan and frame gets clamped to the door so to keep it flat, once the glue sets up, rotate the panel and do the other two sides. Once all 4 sides are set up you can add bracing across the panel. The larger the panel the more bracing needed. I use smaller strips to save weight, 1/2 x 3/4 or so work, these get glued to be back of the panel between the frames. [photos to follow].

I had a panel that I unwisely used lower grade pine to frame and it warped badly. To salvage it, I glued a second 3mm sheet of luan on the back side creating a hollow core panel, just like a hollow core door. BTW, hollow core doors make a good painting support, but are relatively heavy.

Let the glue set up over night with the panel laying down flat. Then sand any rough edges and you are ready for the next steps.

Panel Priming: Priming has to do several things, it has to isolate acids that may exist in the support materials, protect against moisture, stabilize the support, and to provide a receptive painting surface.

When preparing “masonite, plywood, mdf, or cardboard, I find that a sealer coat of shellac is ideal, Shellac does not raise the grain or cause warping and it does not react with gessos. Shellac is available in paint stores as clear [traditionally called white], orange [clear amber] and as a white pigmented primer or BIN. [Note that BIN sells primers with similar labels, make sure you get “shellac based”]. I use white pigmented BIN, some painters like painting directly on clear shellac on luan.

For unsupported panels, first sand the panel using an electric vibrating sander and 80 to 100 grit sandpaper. You want to “break the glaze”. Then coat both sides and all edges of the panel with shellac. A disposable brush works or a small roller is even better. A single thin even coat is all that is needed. Let dry. Coating only one side may cause the panel to warp, if not right away then later at the worst possible time.

After the shellac is dry, go back with your vibrating sander and give it a good sanding, knocking down raised grain, splinters, rough edges, etc. 100 grit open coat sand paper is perfect for this. If you don’t already have a sander I can recommend the 1/4 sheet sanders, I have had a Porter Cable for 8 or 10 years and I use it constantly.

After sanding, you are ready to apply the gesso. I use acrylic gesso, others prefer oil ground, or other traditional grounds. Discussion of grounds is involved and will be the subject of another artical.

You can brush or roll the gesso on. I use 1 inch diameter foam rollers which leave a nice even light texture. Between uses I don’t wash them but keep them in a zip lock bag. I now just scoop gesso with a spoon from the gallon pail onto the horizontal panel or canvas then roll or brush it out. Doing this eliminates the waste you have with a roller pan and saves some clean up.

The first coat should be thinned out so to flow into any textures. Following coats can be to your taste. Different brands vary widely in handling characteristics. I find that the more expensive brands thinned down work better than the cheaper brands which start out thinner. At least 2 coats are needed, I put on 3 or 4 until the coverage is uniform. If you prefer a non-white ground, you can add some acrylic color to the gesso. I paint in oil and prefer to apply a thin oil color wash over the acrylic gesso when I start painting. I think the oil is more receptive to the subsequent layers of oil paint.

After the gesso is bone dry, sand it again. You should experiment here. It is possible to get too smooth and slick of a surface that will give your paint a smeary effect, too rough of a surface can interfer with details, for instance, but this is a matter of your taste and intent. I find that the foam rollers leave a nice pebbly surface that is just right after a quick sanding with 120 grit.

I highly recommend that every artist own a copy of Ralph Mayer’s “The Artist’s Handbook of Materials and Techniques”. First written in 1940 and revised many times since, it has a breath and depth not matched by any other reference. Every artist should read it cover to cover, not only to learn about their own media but to understand what artists working in other media do, also what is possible and what may be detrimental to your intent. It also helps you to understand how and why historic works were done they way they were. THis book should be part of any artists education in my opinion. I often see these in used book shops and garage sales [sometimes unread] and I always grab them and pass them on to worthy recipents.

Things To Consider When Buying A Hearth Padstove Board

What is the difference between a stove board and a hearth pad? Absolutely nothing! They are the same product, the names are used interchangeably, and we will therefore be using the name interchangeably in this article.

2. What is the difference between a hearth pad and a hearth extension? A hearth pad is used to protect the floor under a free standing wood stove, pellet stove or gas stove. A hearth extension is a rectangular hearth pad that sits in front of an existing fireplace hearth where the fireplace has been converted to accept a wood, pellet, or gas insert.

3. What is your overall goal: floor protection, appearance, or maintenance? Firstly, you must understand why you are buying floor protection. You may need temperature protection for a large wood stove or may need only minimal thermal protection for a gas or pellet stove. Also, if you already have a non-combustible floor you may be considering the stove board for its decorative purposes only.

4. What is the size of the area you need to cover? Many stoves or inserts have a specific area requirement to be protected. Be sure that you know the size requirements, and then buy a hearth pad that will cover this area plus more; your installation manual will have this information.

5. Are there special requirements that the stove manufacturer requires for use of their product? Yes, many stoves are designed and sold with a specific size AND insulating value requirement for the stove board. The installation manual will point this out. Be sure you understand the appliance you have and what its installation requirements are.

6. Are any structural changes required before you install the stove and stove board? Your installer may suggest you modify the area in which you are placing your stove or insert in order to provide better or safer operation. It is best to make these changes before you install the stove board and stove.

7. What is the construction of the hearth pad, and are any combustible materials used? As amazing as it may sound, many hearth pads are made with combustible fiber or chip board as their core material. This is then covered with ceramic tile or metal. All Hearth-Safe hearth pads are made of 100% noncombustible materials. The base for a Hearth-Safe stove board is cement board. This provides not only a non-combustible base material, but also provides extreme rigidity reducing the possibility of cracking the tile or grout.

8. What is the “R” Value of the hearth pad? The “R” value is a measure of the insulating value of the floor protection. You may be familiar with this from your home insulation. The higher the “R” value the more thermal protection your floor will receive. The minimum “R” value for a stove board is 1.0, Hearth-Safe hearth pads have an “R” value of 2.4; over twice the minimum.

9. Do I want a corner or wall pad, and what is the difference? A corner pad is designed to fit tightly into a corner; a wall pad sits flat against a wall. You can use a wall pad in the corner but it will not fit the cornet tightly. A corner pad in a corner installation will allow for a stove installation closer to the wall assuming your stove design allows for that.

10. Does the hearth pad come with a warranty? A simple question but important question. With shipping being very rough and then walking on the stove board daily, you want to be sure that you have protection against any cracked tile or grout joint.

11. And finally, number 11. I know Ive titled this the 10 things to consider before buying a hearth pad, however there appears to be 11 pieces of wisdom to impart. Thus, always consider whether you like the design of the stove board and its installed appearance. Item 11 of 10 may, in fact, be the most important. Do you like the frame and tile style/color of the hearth pad? Be sure to look at the many tile styles and colors as well as the edge treatment of the overall hearth pad. One line of Hearth-Safe hearth pads has a decorative extruded aluminum edge for a unique finished look. As long as youre going with a Hearth-Safe hearth pad, you cant go wrong, so definitely make sure that youre happy with the overall look.

Rare Wood Veneer Styles Paldao, Bosse, Pecan, Butternut, And Avodire

In a society where everybody wants to be one of a kind, it makes sense that unique items are sought after. It works the same way in the world of veneer, where the best woodworkers, designers, and architects very often ask for rare woods. Keeping this in mind, I will be speaking of five species of rare veneers. Each one has unique characteristics that make it an excellent choice for only certain types of wood projects.

1. Paldao Veneer. Very similar to Orientalwood and Australian Walnut (the names are interchangeable), Paldao is a very unique and rare veneer that has a nice-looking mottle figure. It also looks comparable to American Black Walnut, but the black stripe in the mottle figure and the more red tone sets it apart. Paldao is used often in the manufacturing of furniture.

2. Bosse Veneer. This species is actually a Mahogany relative and has a pinkish pale color. It comes in many figured varieties including Pomelle and Fiddleback. Bosse is also called Spanish Cedar the same exact species with a different name. It is also used heavily in the interior of boats.

3. Pecan Veneer. This wood is basically interchangeable with Hickory. While the two woods are a different species, even the most knowledgeable woodworker would probably have a hard time telling the two apart. Pecan and Hickory can be calico, or two-toned light and dark, colored. It can also come in a single color, either dark or light.

Motocross – 4 Simple Steps For Constructing Your Own Dirt Bike Tracks

You might not have 9 or 10 acres of land to mess around with, but that does not mean you can’t make a good track. You can still make a useful dirt bike track as long as you follow some important rules. As long as you have a bit of land and a tractor you can make a track that will give you many years of fun riding your dirt bike motorcycles. Of course, you may perhaps find that making dirt bike tracks is more thrilling than actually riding.

Step 1 – Getting Authorization is Job Number One

There’s no use to take it any further till you get some required permissions. Obviously, asking your folks for permission is step number one, but there are more individuals that must give their approval too. You must be sure you obtain whatever permits are needed that will enable you to lawfully make and use your track.

Additionally, you want to ask your neighbors for the go-ahead. I know it’s tough to imagine, but some individuals don’t like noisy dirt bikes drowning out the sound of their television or additional dust settling on their outside furniture. Save yourself a heap of hassles by making sure you get approval from your neighbors, otherwise you run the risk of creating a dirt bike track that you can’t ride on. Spending cash and time making a wonderful track, only to have the local authorities close you down, will not improve relations with your neighbors.

Step 2 – Choose the Top Location

Clay is the most effective kind of soil for a track and will throw up less dust and dirt than other kinds of dirt, but the clouds of dust can still be bothersome to neighbors. If all of them possess dirt bike motorcycles you almost certainly won’t have too much of a problem, however the possibilities of that are extraordinarily slim. If they seem a bit tense about having a track in their backyard maybe you can agree to use it on specific days of the week.

You want to create it in an area where the terrain will require less work to whip into shape. For instance, if you are able to find a site where the natural landscape already has small hills you won’t have to spend as much time with the Bobcat building your own personal jumps from scratch.

If you have the option of selecting a location with dry dusty dirt or good clay soil, do not opt for a future dust bowl. In addition to loud engines, dust and dirt can be a big issue in your neighbor’s eyes. If at all possible, try to choose a site where an excessive quantity of dirt and dust will not end up in your neighbor’s backyard.

Also, be aware that low lying sections of track can become small lakes during wet weather, therefore it’s to your best interest to plan your design correctly. It will also help if you create the paths at an angle, permitting water to run off rather than puddle. With correct planning you can eliminate a ton of future maintenance.

Step 3 – Design Your Course prior to Getting into the Bobcat

Ride your bike through the future track prior to selecting the route that your track will take. This will give you a good idea on the natural flow of the land and allow you to style a suitable track layout. Dirt bike tracks should be designed to take advantage of the unique terrain that already exists. The track must also be based on your talent level. For instance, if you are a newbie it probably is not wise to build jumps that you can’t deal with safely.

Above all else, dirt bike tracks need to be built to be as safe as possible. Don’t make jumps where big rocks and trees will make riding hazardous. If you can’t get away from the trees and rocks at least place some padded protection such as hay bales or old mattresses in front of potentially damaging items. If you’re going to have an accident you would like to be able to get up and ride again. Hospital trips are not as fun as they’re cracked up to be.

Step 4 – Rev up that Bobcat and Start Moving that Dirt

If you do not have a powerful tractor in your garage a Bobcat will be your next option. It is possible to rent one, with or without an operator, at very cheap prices. You’ll be shocked at how fast your track will take form when you begin pushing that dirt around.

Mold some hills into jumps that fit your talent level and put berms at the base of other hills. It is a sensible idea to form as many turns and corners as you can so that you won’t be able to develop too much speed going into the jumps.

Sticking with these four steps can help you create a dirt bike track that you can be proud of and that will be safe for many years to come. Do yourself a favor and spend as much time as necessary coming up with the design of the track. A well-designed plan will be safer, more fun, and require less work and maintenance.
