    A bent or kinked saw is not the same as a scratch or a ding. Then again, it depends on what you want to do with it. If all you’re gonna do is paint the side of it and hang it on the wall, then it...

    It’s an extreme measure, a last resort, perhaps for those people who are unwilling to invest in an ultrasonic cleaning system (either commercial or home brew.)

    What really bothers me is that people might think it was someone else, Good People like Pete Taran or Tom Lie-Nielsen. They don’t deserve even the possibility of a doubt, at least from me.

    That’s fine. Let me give you an example of how things can work a bit differently. I bought an expensive saw from a “maker” based on reputation, and after 12 weeks to deliver a bone stock saw, what...

    The thing I don’t like about the Google mesh system is that, if you read the fine print, you’re giving Google entitlement to all the data that runs through it. If you’re using the system to handle...

    I think this may be one reason why the CRC 3 36 product works so well for me. Immediately after removing the Cosmoline, I saturate the surface with the CRC product, which is very runny, and work it...

    I don’t like that Helmsman product, I don’t think it’s as UV resistant as they claim it is, and it can be a pain to redo. If you must use a varnish, the Epifanes is better, but I prefer the look of...

    The number one thing, and it has already been mentioned, is to store the can upside down. If the paint then leaks out all over the place, well, that’s a different problem.
