    Not seeing your resolution to this so I thought I'd add my two cents. I like to look at the lumens per watt used. I am seeing lots of inexpensive LED fixtures in the last 4 months or so, priced at...

    This thread is not very active right now, but just in case someone looks to it for ideas, I'll post a few. When I built the shop almost six years ago, LED light fixtures were relatively expensive and...

    Late to the thread - but I'm looking for advice on "workbench casters" since there are "upgraded versions" out there now. I tried two different sets two years ago, the second set was a replacement...

    Thanks to all for the thoughts and ideas. I created a little clearance under the sash clamps using plywood strips and I'll certainly be rounding up a couple toothbrushes to help me with glue...

    Thanks for this idea. I already had some stands made for the clamps so, after reading this, I made a few plywood bars 3/4" x 1-3/4" and 28" long that sit in slots in the stands. I'll put packaging...

    I built a moxon vise using the shafts of screw thread dumbells ($15) and it works great to quickly add a few inches so close work becomes, well, close. It clamps to my bench top and accommodates work...
  9. Removing glue squeeze out from under clamps and cauls?

    I want to glue up some 3/4" alder to make wider boards. I've read about removing excess glue (squeeze) once it has become rubbery by scraping it off. But with a bar clamp every 10-12" how do you do...

    Try Al pipe?

    After purchasing a pipe clamp (using Al) from a thrift store, I outfitted a few other pipe clamps with Aluminum pipe. The "grips" eat into the Al pipe just a little but get good grip easily. If used...

    Perhaps you are right and I think I have a pre-disposition about marketing "geniuses". I worked in a production environment in two different industries and found marketing to be the tail that wags...

    Go ahead, insult my intelligence!

    I decided not to buy the merch in my cart; I'll do without for now and shop elsewhere. The big Blue R woodworking company sent a promo code for $10 off of $50. I had more than that in merch in my...
