    The ground has always been a safety feature. A way to route a short into the earth, rather than shocking people or causing fire. This is the reason why you did not learn about the ground wire in...

    FWIW, I installed the Grizzly version, and couldn't tell any real difference. The Grizzly is much shorter, maybe 1' in length, but otherwise identical.

    Anybody else like to brag that they're invested in "non-traditional assets" at parties? When I get a blank look I just tell them I'm hedging inflation by buying wood working equipment, some of which...

    In my brokerage accounts at Vanguard the trades are "free". Usually what that means is they're selling the order flow, like Robinhood, and you might actually be better off paying for your orders. ...

    Don't know if you've been following the John Deere saga, but there's a strong demand for farm equipment that the farmers can work on themselves, and not rely on the dealer. It's driven up prices for...

    Obviously your results will vary, but I'm seeing ~$16 a sheet for OSB vs $10 a sheet for drywall. One thing that's nice about drywall unmodified is that it's white and reflects light. Also if this...

    Yes, I'm aware, but that is not the brand they recently bought which is what the comment I was replying to was referencing. So Grizzly has Shop Fox, Polar Bear, Anniversary, and now South Bend. ...
