New DeWalt Miter Saw and Fence with Scale

I needed to upgrade my saw from a DeWalt Table saw with a jig I made to a DeWalt Miter Saw DWS713 (cheapest one they make I think). I went with the Logan F100-5 Framers Fence which has been recently discontinued but found a place that had one left on stock. I made the platform and put on a high table I got at auction for $10. Turned out pretty sweet and cuts are excellent. Update: I recently made a purchase of some framing specialized equipment which included a Frame Square Mitre Table Saw which proves perfect mitre cuts, but the DeWalt miter saw gets regular use for rough cuts and general woodworking.

Beavis and Butt-Head - Origin Story?

We went to the NC Art Museum and saw this picture and all I could think about was how similar these two guys ( Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon by Lucas Cranach the Younger) look like Beavis and Butt-Head. Perhaps the likeness Mike Judge wanted to emulate. Probably envisioned them as teenagers and went from there.  John
