    I am not quite sure I understand the use case, but it sounds like what you might actually want is chinking.

    Is that a printer?

    Not sure what kind of jointer you have, but for me getting a 12 inch wide jointer really improved my storage space.

    I think the questions are emailed out. I have received emails like "Can you answer...'s question?"

    And I think the people replying do not really understand how the internet works and think an...

    We don't have much poison ivy around here but we do have bindweed, and the only moderately effective way I have found to deal with it is to take the concentrated glyphosate and dilute it to about...

    I get none of those from amazon.

    What gets me, however, is if I google one thing I see ads for it for months, and then if I buy something google cannot employ its machine learning to understand...

    Yep. Should have walked away at the first red flag.

    Trying to convince my wife I need a machine shop setup at home so I could just make all our keys by hand. She is skeptical.

    Interesting. I have never done that. Is this standard practice with new keys?

    Yeah, I am not taking issue with the concept. Copying a key is a simple enough thing that surely can be easily and...

    I have literally only one locksmith within three miles of my house, and in that radius I have a Lowes, two Home Depots, two Ace Hardwares and a pretty good local hardware store. I went to that one...
  11. self-service key duplicating kiosks

    I went to Lowes yesterday to get a couple of duplicates of my house key to give to a house sitter and a neighbor. At the desk where they normally duplicate keys I was told that no one who is trained...

    I am sure they are excellent quality, but I feel like I do about a lot of Veritas tools--they seem a little over-engineered. The removable handle seems like a needless complication.

    I think often times those prime seats are actually owned by big companies or other entities who give tickets away more than they use them themselves. The company I work for has a box at Arrowhead...

    I moved to the united states as a teenager, so I came to baseball late enough that I missed the strike but got to watch the home run (steroid) era of the 90s. I never played it much but I do like...

    I figured out a way to stretch the shafts--the area I was having trouble with. I took some 2-liter soda bottles, filled them with water, put the caps, shoved them in the boots and put the boots in...

    It is a Northfield sliding table saw.

    I find that I have to always tighten and loosen the set screw in front of the t-track piece of the miter gauge, and if I do not I never get back to 90. ...

    Yeah, that is nice. I just don't like taking the miter fence on and off each time. It would be different if it were easier to remove, but I have to fumble around with a hex key. I don't know--both...

    so I moved the slider forward and have been using it like that for a couple of weeks and I think I am going to move it back. The reason I don't like it forward is that I have to remove the miter...

    The only advantage I believe corrugated planes have is that if they are not flat it is easier to flatten then because there is less metal to remove.

    Even that I think is mostly theoretical.
