    I drilled all those holes this morning, and don't think I was off much more than that on any of them. I had ordered a couple of different brands of 3/4" Forstner bits to try. Only one had come, an...

    My BIL shot me doing this today. No editing, and first take. I make no claim to be good at explaining things. I can answer questions though.

    Don't worry Fritz, it's not as hard as it sounds, and doesn't take long at all once you find the right spot, to be able to put another one there. I never measure turns, but I don't think I'm at a...

    Here's the conductive grease I use for such things. It has carbon in it, and will easily get all over everything if you get it on a finger. I already had it for working on old tractors. It's not...

    One of ours in the rental house is also an old Craftsman. I started looking at replacement parts, and pretty quickly decided the better way to go would be to just replace it. Fortunately, the...

    My book off ebay came today. The ad said it was like new, and it is. It's an original from 1940, not a reprint, but not even a folded corner anywhere. There is the slightest bit of old book smell,...
