    Had the most pleasant shopping experience yesterday--

    Thread Starter: Kev Williams

    Needed to go to Walmart for a few things. They implemented a mandatory mask rule last weekend. When I pulled into the parking lot first thing I noticed was there was barely half as many cars than normal, maybe less. The south doors were locked, entry/exit from the north doors only. Went in, grabbed...

    Hand Plane - First time buying

    Thread Starter: Victor Price Jr

    Hi Everyone, this is my first post and hopefully I can get some advice. I've primarily been woodworker who uses machines, but I'm find that I need more options. I'm planning on buying a few hand planes in the near future, and I'd like some opinions. I like to buy a tool once, and keep it, so I...

    Help me choose new ROS-please

    Thread Starter: Lisa Starr

    Well, my Dewalt ROS (DWC6421) has died. I've been perfectly happy with it and it owes me nothing. That said, I'd like your thoughts before purchasing a new one. I'd like to stay under $200 and have some other wishes. 1) Uses 5" discs, hook & loop, as I have lots of stock. 2) Reasonably...

    Thread Starter: ken hatch

    I'm still crippling around on a bad wheel so not much is happening in the shop even sharpening is too much some days. There have been a few days where whisky and a elevated foot was all I could do. On one of the good days I did install a stitched cotton wheel on the grinder and have taken a...

    Vintage Cars

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    The wife's 1956 Ford Thunderbird will be delivered next week from the body shop (since January 2019). When it arrives, the wife's 1965 Mustang heads down to be restored (going from blue to white). She won't restore her old 1991 Ford F150 though. She might look for a 1960's vintage Camaro soon. What...

    Wide Cherry

    That was going to be my suggestion, too, for wide stock. Louis specializes in it.

    Do you buy lumber S2S?

    I almost never buy pre surfaced lumber for woodworking, the exception being that my supplier of soft maple sells it skip planed, but there's no price

    SW's Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel

    Hope it helps, Paul. Being an oil modified product, I'm sure you are right that Emerald will take several weeks to fully cure, much longer than ProClassic
