    I asked this question on another thread. What's with the multiple bevels, over the last couple or three weeks I keep seeing mention of primary, secondary, and even tertiary bevels.

    Load Center for "new" shop

    Thread Starter: John Pariseau

    I completed (passed final inspection) last October (2019), and I'm getting ready to start electrifying my shop. I had decided early on pulling a building permit that included electric, was too much for me to do in one pass - I'm very glad I made that decision. I've done some research here and on a...

    I need a good chicken trap.

    Thread Starter: Malcolm Schweizer

    Our outdoor shop is infested with chickens. I am about to get the crossbow out, but am going to try to be humane first. They are pooping on all my projects at night. You country boys (and girls) share your best live chicken trap.

    Hello and thank you

    Which lathes are you referring to? From what I've found, I can get the 1216 with the 20" extension for $1000+tax. The only 16 inch lathes I've seen
