    Electric Cars

    Thread Starter: John Terefenko

    Handplane courage

    Thread Starter: Mark Rainey

    Mine have a sizzling bacon sound but my ears are old so I barely hear it. I believe I've heard that the newer models might be a little louder than the

    Glue up of Wall Art

    Seems like a bead of construction glue in the center of each piece would be sufficient bonding since the only load on the bond will be the weight of the
