    In The Grocery Section, Disappearing Store Brands

    Thread Starter: Bruce Wrenn

    Recently (in the last year,) I have noticed more and more "store brands" disappearing from the shelves. The stores where I regularly shop (excluding Aldi's) now only have Campbell's soup. Walmart has a very limited selection of their in house "Great Value" brand soup. Same goes for oatmeal, only...

I'm replacing them with carriage-style doors on...

    Need for crosscut sled?

    Steve, I don't disagree with TWW's logic on that...a whole bunch of cross cutting really is at 90 in my experience, so a fixed fixture, as it were, can
