    There will be at least three components to this calculation. 1) ability to complete the work with fewer hours expended, 2) improved quality, including both precision and material lost due to error,...

    I've never needed to run a humidifier in the summer. Might be nice, actually!

    Just guessing at the scale but that looks like a short spindle. normally the bearing would just stack above or below the cutter or sanding drum to do what you want.

    You need either a longer...

    Prashun is probably right-- I didn't think about is as I've never had enclosed trash containers in my shop. Everything sits out in open containers with circulating air and plenty of opportunity to...

    Installing it through the wall might well be easier.

    I think the fire danger with oily rags has to do with the huge surface area presented by all the fibers in the rag, allowing lots of exothermic polymerization to go in in a small area, and hence heat...

    I've subsequently ordered from bandsaw blades direct and the product has been excellent. They are not quick, however, so not a great choice if you need something this week. One of the orders I placed...

    This works great, you just need to be sure that the foam layer is thick enough (and consistent enough) so that you don't create a condensing surface inside the wall. Your foam contractor should know...

    I ran most of the wiring in the ceiling using plain romex then dropped the receptacles down using EMT. No bending involved, a significant cost/labor saving, and the wires are protected where they're...

    History of the car radio

    A friend sent this to me recently, I don't know who wrote it. It appeared on a number of bulletin boards back in 2012, with no reliable attribution (possibly it came from this Studebaker site). I...

    In MA, and I suspect most other places, foam needs to be covered with something to protect it from fire. Drywall is the usual choice, but intumescent paint is a better choice in the attic because...

    Do yourself a favor and take a weekend trip up to Lancaster county (beautiful almost any time, especially in spring) and go the the National Watch and Clock Museum for inspiration, and then buy a...

    If you are concerned about venting your roof (I wouldn't be), when you re-roof you can put sleepers on top of the existing roof, an additional layer of decking and then ventilate that space with...

    I loved my Bosch 1250 DEVS right up until it died with no replacement parts available. It was ny only sander for a long time (well, not counting the PC330 that I keep around for old times sake)...

    I've been favorably impressed with the Indasa Rhynosoft foam backed pads. They have them down to 80 grit, but I haven't tried anything coarser than 240.

    Across multiple products I've found the...

    If you've got a flat platform that can be set at 40 degrees to the wheel it should work fine. Stuart Batty has videos on Youtube that show how to do it (not on a Tormek, but the brand of the grinder...

    Probably a better idea, you do pick some of the dye (1% maybe?) back up on your rubbing pad when laying down the first pass or two. I'd hardly describe it as a muddy mess though.

    Interestingly, simplicity occurs at the extremes of the market, at either the very low end to make the least expensive possible product, or at the very high end to achieve elegance in design and use...
