    New Shop Construction

    Thread Starter: Kris Cook

    I currently have my shop in a two-car garage. While I don't necessarily use both bays of the garage solely for wood working; for me the footprint of one bay is not adequate space to efficiently work. We are down-sizing and have just purchased a 100-year old house north of where we live now. The...

    New shop build, the MBS

    Thread Starter: Jon Snider

    I’ve received some offline encouragement to post some content of my new shop build. If you’ve read any of my other numerous questions (thx all for invaluable help), I’ve been at this since last April. Here is an effort to slowly catch up. The shop replaces the same spot where I built a veggie...

Yesterday I ran across this Microsoft link that worked at no cost. I am now running...

    D-Day: 75 years

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    It's hard to believe it's been this long. I've never met anyone who landed on the beaches on D-Day. I've always admired their bravery - it couldn't have been easy to be a 20 year old facing that. There's a short article on D-Day that I found interesting from the FDR Library. LINK Thanks once...

    Dust Bin Sensor Completed

    Thread Starter: Larry Frank

    After reading all of the fine work by several members, I decided that I wanted to add the dust bin sensor to my Oneida Super Dust Gorilla. I ordered most of the parts on eBay. The sensor was $3.79, the delay relay board was $4.95 and the 12 V power supply was $9.99. I used some LED trailer...

    Vacuum Clamping

    I see no reason why it wouldn't work. A gasket grooved pod with a central port that gives you flexibility to configure the gasket as needed would not

    Bent nails?

    I agree. I had one where I shot a nail in, it hit an unseen knot, and it poked out 90 degrees from the direction that it went in.

    Maybe, Best Tool I Ever Bought...

    I've had a Milwaukee Portaband for maybe 20 years and I agree, it's a great tool! I have 20' lengths of steel in a shed and when I need some shorter
