    Gassed up today

    Thread Starter: Rick Potter

    While we were on a trip last week a war started and gas prices went crazy everywhere. Got back Monday night. Today, Friday, we decided to gas up two cars. The cheapest gas we saw while driving around was $5.47 for reg unleaded at an Arco station. That was cash, credit was $5.67. We pulled into...

    Garage cost...are you kidding me?

    Thread Starter: Robert Hartmann

    I retired from the Air Force close to two years ago. It took us until now to find the house we wanted. So, I was ready to finally have a space dedicated for a wood shop instead of cramming into here or there as we moved every three years. We have a great house with some land and a perfect spot...

    Krenov Style Apron Plane

    Thread Starter: Dale Osowski

    New Mig

    Thinking about buying my first welder. Probably going a bit overboard on size, but looking at the Miller 212 Autoset. A good welder or not? I like the Miller line and if I decide down the road to sell it, it should command a decent return. Or I hope it should.

    Another shop build thread

    Thread Starter: Zachary Hoyt

    I've been asking a lot of questions over the last several months and figured I would start a new thread to show whatever progress I make on the shop. I finally got my building permit on Monday for the workshop next to my "new" house in the Adirondacks. The shop is to be 16x32, built on skids...

    Last time this happened it lightened my wallet, but man oh man that low angle plane is sweet. I actually like using it as opposed to "needing"

    Need air compressor advice
