    I'm finally building my boat.

    Thread Starter: Malcolm Schweizer

    I lofted the station moulds for her about six years ago, but we moved to a place with less room to build a boat, so she went on hold. I have borrowed a place to build and am going to make all the bits and pieces in my shop, then assemble them in the borrowed space. This is going to be a slow...

    clifton vs lie nielsen????

    Thread Starter: Roger Benton

    Been wanting a #4-1/2 for a while and decided to save up the cash and buy new. I'd love to hear from any owners of Clifton planes, as that is LN's only competition for my $$$.

    New Moravian Bench build Part 2

    Thread Starter: ken hatch

    The old thread was getting a little long in tooth. Friday night I screwed up one of the long stretcher tenons. After several rounds of "what if" and "yes but" I made the correct decision and went to the woodstore Saturday and picked up a nice hunk of 12/4 Poplar and started over. Here are...

    What is a "rule of six" breaker box?

    Thread Starter: Stephen Tashiro

    In reading about the dangers of Federal Pacific "Stab-lock" breakers at https://diy.stackexchange.com/questions/62320/should-all-federal-pacific-panels-be-replaced , I see the terminology "rule of six" for electrical breaker boxes. What makes the circuit in a breaker box a "rule of six"?
