    Do YOU use handscrew clamps?

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    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...

    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...

    Sanding shellac

    Works best if o-b finish has cured. But oil and shellac are used together in grain filling and polishing applications.

    File not engraving

    I have lost my links to vector services but the most recent one I used was an Indian firm. Very fast, very good and cheap.

    Double engraving

    Different tube, different power supply, you need to try different power settings (and speed also)

    Kanna Selection

    I'll throw in my two cents (and experience) on this... I wanted to get into using a kanna about a year ago, and read everything I could, including BH's
