    I worked for a while in a tape factory in the early 90s. Naturally those of us on the production line got adhesive on ourselves day in and day out. Pretty much everyone washed their hands in MEK at...

    I use the Franklin Liquid Hide Glue when I need a long open time, or I need to worry about glue under a finish. It works well and is plenty strong, although it is kind of gooey and a little messy to...

    I just used pipe strap, a.k.a. roll-o-holes, plumbers tape. My main lines are 6" on a 3 hp cyclone, so I wasn't worried about extra screws here or there. I just make sure to put them in the sides...

    It's hard to say and depends a lot on your individual situation. I'm near Mpls, and indoor relative humidity here can be in the high 80s in the summer (with AC!), down to below 20 in the winter. We...

    I have to admit, I really haven't found a #4 (or #3) that I like better than just a standard WWII-ish Stanley (I don't get into type studies, so somewhere around mid thirties to late forties) with...

    Chances are, if you have a cup problem now with that piece of wood in the drawer face, you probably will always have some problems with cupping, regardless of what you do. It is just something that...

    I do like those old WWII war effort films. They are a little terrifying though to the modern safety-oriented mind. It is interesting to compare how many people it took to build things back then,...

    For all the effort you are going through, you might as well do it legal and just put junction boxes in on each side with conduit and listed wire in between or just run some 8/2 NMB from the switch...

    Is it an actual wall, or just an "enclosure" around your dust collector? Cords aren't supposed to go through walls, per the NEC. If it is a real wall, you'll need to do it with real wiring, not SJO.

    Staring at the big 50, I'm probably a young pup compared to most here, although I have done woodworking in some form for the last 40 years, primarily as a hobby. What I find is that I can do most...

    You could do far worse than pick that one up for $400. My 14" Delta Bandsaw I bought new in 1996 for $650 is the last power tool I would give up.

    I also did one shop in drywall, and the next in OSB. I would definitely pick OSB or plywood over the drywall. Stud locations become so much less important.
