    I just bought some SYP treated lumber from Home Depot to rebuild part of a playset. It was soaked so I stickered it in my basement and ran a fan on it for a month. I've read that you can buy...

    Oh boy, here we go. I guess I’m one of the three people in the world that loved “Down Periscope”. Seriously “The Enemy Below” is excellent.

    Probably the best high-security story I've heard came from my brother who wrote consumer loans in Omaha. He knew this guy who did regular maintenance on Xerox machines including one at SAC...

    That 8" jointer seems like it's in a better league than the planer. I would go for the planer. I got rid of a lunchbox for a 15" Powermatic with helical head. Big improvement. Someday I may...

    Ok, all. Here's a challenge. Everyone with Alexa or Siri listening. Just say a couple of times a day, "I want a crowbar". Let's see how many crowbar ads show up.

    Jim,

    Can you tell me what happens when you have the headphones paired with your phone and you receive an incoming call while listening to the FM radio?
    That's what I want. I want to put on my...

    I don't think there is any issue with dust in the DRO. I have a DRO mounted under my router table and it's worked fine for years.

    FWIW, I use one spacer and it's no bother at all. My home brew...

    I'm a big fan of subpanels with disconnects.
    I'm also a big fan of OSB on the walls. It's cheaper than plywood but plenty strong.
    All of my outlets are ceiling mounted (I'm tall) so almost nothing...

    A fairly simple solution is to mount the DRO so that it measures 4'-6' from the blade. Then keep 2' and a 4' spacers (or 2 two foot ones). It's what I do with a much simpler system.

    On a related note, look up “straight edge.” These are punk rockers minus the drugs and alcohol.

    Jim, it was more of a joke than a real suggestion. There are always some DC threads going but those tend to mix with other things. This week, I guess the stars aligned and nearly all the most...

    I know it's not always like this but it seems that nearly all the most recent threads deal with dust collectors in some way.

    There's a physician in rural Kansas that had an office visit charge that was keyed to the first class stamp. 100 times the price of the stamp. He didn't accept insurance.

    Dan,
    The first thing I notices was the numbers. 6 boards at 6" is 36" total to make a 35" wide table. That's cutting it pretty close.

    How are you filling the voids? Epoxy? Are you coloring...

    somewhat off topic: There is a unit of time called the ohnosecond. It is that interval of time where it just dawns on you that you have really screwed up ("Oh No").

    Nobody mentioned sharp blades as a safety feature but they are very important. If you have a dull blade, you have to push the work. If you push the work, you are exerting more force towards the...
