    I tried the Spyderco ceramic stones but really didn't like them. They're sitting in a cabinet somewhere. Maybe I should pull them out and try them again.

    Ah, I did find those CBN wheels for the WorkSharp - $50/each. I'll probably keep using the diamond ones I have for a while. Maybe when they wear out I'll spring for the CBN.

    Thanks, Tom. I tried that one but because of the large number of photos I have, it gave me an error of running out of memory. And I have 32GB of main memory on my machine.

    Thanks, Marc. I need a program which will compare actual images, not just look for duplicate files. I may have edited an image (maybe brightened it up) but it's the same image. I want to find all...

    Duplicate Photo Finder

    I think I remember that someone mentioned a program that found duplicate photos on your computer. I have a lot of photos on my computer and need to eliminate some to gain back some disk space.

    The Fray brace just has a split nose with a screw to pull the two sides together. It's not like a more modern brace with a chuck.

    I didn't know that. Thanks!

    I'll go look for one.

    This would be my recommendation as well - probably a lot less expensive than converting the tool. Running a 50Hz tool on 60Hz should not be a problem. If it's an induction motor, it will run...

    I rarely use my CBN wheel on a chisel or plane blade - I have a WorkSharp and use that most of the time to re-establish a primary bevel or to correct a damaged edge. But when I do use the CBN, I do...

    This is one of those situations that lend itself to testing, rather than opinion. My suggestions:

    1. Spread glue on only one surface, clamp it to another board, then take the glue joint apart...

    I've had my dust collector in a closet for about 10 years and I don't know if I ever cleaned it. I just checked it and there's a very light amount of dust on the other tools in the closet. Hardly...

    My experience is the same. I have a couple of DMT diamond plates that I got about 2007 and they're still good. I didn't have any way to judge them, so last year, I bought another coarse/extra...

    Put a sheet of plastic over the veneer and then put something that will "squeeze" over the plastic. I've used thick duck fabric, a yoga mat, and a few other things. Anything that will give a bit.

    I would suggest a test, which I have done. Put glue on one surface, then clamp the boards together. Do a good clamp, just the same as you would do normally. Then take the boards apart and see if...

    Quite a few years ago, I got a 2.5mm Hirsch chisel from Lee Valley. It was special order.

    That's very close to 1/10 since there are 25.4mm in an inch. About 0.0984"

    I would attach the suspenders to my pants, not to my belt. You could get suspenders that attach with buttons and sew buttons on your pants. Buttons are actually the way suspenders were originally...

    I ordered those screws from McMaster-Carr yesterday about 4pm. They arrived today about noon - with standard shipping. That's really fast. Of course, the screws didn't weigh very much.

    I agree with that regarding hot hide glue. For any glue up of size, it's very difficult to keep the glue liquid long enough to get the parts together. I can't imagine how our ancestors glued up...

    If you added up the voltage drop for all the tubes in one of those cheap tube radios, it added to 120 volts (if I recall correctly). They all had to use the same current.
