    Stocks and "the market"

    Thread Starter: dennis thompson

    Why do people keep predicting what " the market" will do for the next year. I would bet that none of these market predictions for 2019 was for a 30% gain , yet this week Barrons has their annual roundtable in which market experts make their predictions for 2020, why? The only good answer to the...

    Tinker toy and waste of money?

    Thread Starter: Larry Foster

    Recently. I've developed an interest in CNC routing/engraving. After watching a ton of YouTube videos on the subject, started looking at machines. My budget is low and, initially, looked at 3018 machines on Amazon. $200-300. I realize the working area is smaller than a piece of copy paper. ...

    hitting holdfasts with metal hammer

    Thread Starter: Günter VögelBerg

    Is this an ok practice? I have the gramercy holdfasts and the crucible lump hammer. If I use my weighted rubber mallet I have to really pound on it to get a tight hold. I suspect this has to do with geometry issues in the holes in my bench. I find myself just using the metal hammer, but I am...

    I finally did it, bought a Festool Domino

    Thread Starter: David Sloan

    Have looked at all the Festool tools for years at places like Woodcraft and Highland in Atlanta. Considered them overpriced like many. But I broke down and drank the green koolaid. I bought the Domino 500 Emerald edition. I am floored by its quality and how beautifully it works.Like my Sawstop 3hp...
