    Global warming and the weather

    Thread Starter: Malcolm Schweizer

I have personally witnessed the dying off of our coral reefs and the explosion of sargasso weed in the ocean. I personally don’t see how it isn’t easy to connect the industrial revolution...

    Jointer/Planer Question

    Thread Starter: Izzy Charo

    I have an 8 inch DJ-20 jointer (with Byrd head) that I've had for 30 years, and works well. I also have the Grizzly 15 inch planer with spiral head, which after much time devoted to adjustments, now also works well.
