    I was hoping it was just the picture. Something about the first picture made it look like the top was multiple edge joined boards, but then the figure matched across them. Gorgeous piece, and...

    Here's the only picture I can think of, that I have available right off, for a chimney cricket. The cricket itself has to be flashed. I typically don't even use caulking for any part of it. The...

    Those are nice, but you can't rent one for 200 bucks a day, and the delivery, and pickup fees will be even more than that.

    I got my 210 dollars worth out of the towable's rental cost, that day. I...

    Yes, I went back and looked at that thread. It doesn't have to be on level ground. The feet are self-leveling, or can individually be adjusted. We put it on the side of a hill that might have been...

    Once you get the Leigh dialed in, there is nothing to change but the dovetail spacing. That is, if you only use it for one thickness of wood, and keep two dedicated routers. Otherwise, I wouldn't...

    Was the graining applied to that top? Do you have another picture, looking down on the top? Who says it was from the 18th Century-just curious? The picture raises some questions, but may just be...

    If you have anywhere close to level to park, the lift I rented last week goes up 45 feet, and some combination of over 27 feet. The stabilizer feet are self-leveling. It'll work about anywhere you...

    There are towable man lifts that rent pretty cheap, these days. If he didn't do any better job than that on the chimney to start with, I wouldn't trust him to know how to fix it, and I wouldn't...

    This is the stuff I built those shutters from. It was all from very old Cypress trees, cut down for a road project in the 1970's. It was all 16'7" long. No need to ask where it is. He's already...

    I have always used primer. The thinned down OB soaks in some, so I always felt like it was worth the trouble. It's also easy to sand, if needed. Rub it once in each of two directions (back, and...

    A squirrel shorted out the transformer for our house. It made a tremendous arc, like a welding arc, that I told everyone not to look at. The arc continued to burn until the wires parted. I called...

    Thanks Paul. Looks like they should serve our purposes too, and a lot cheaper than having a one-off made.

    I bought a Unisaw cheap, and later found out there was wear in one miter slot where it had been used a lot for making short cuts with a miter gauge. A few years later, someone gave me another, older...

    I have some of those car reamers for metal work. Their sides aren't straight. They do an amazing job of enlarging holes in steel with a magnetic drill press. They turn opposite than the way the...

    The best way to learn to weld aluminum is to pay someone to teach you, whether a school, or individual. You just can't do it well with cheap equipment. A cylinder of Argon is a very small part of...

    I think you are going to have to pick both up, to see what you think of them. I prefer a sidewinder, so I went with the Milwaukee for a 10-1/4". It feels more natural to me to have my right hand...

    You should be able to order the insulated glass panel from a local glass company cheaper than you can get it shipped to you from online. They are surprisingly cheap from a glass company.
