    None of these cuts were parallel to any side, nor were the shoulder cuts perpendicular to a side. The posts were leaning, so I had to mark lines where they needed to be cut. The old wood was good...

    cutting to a line with a handsaw

    Builds skill for cutting to a line with other types of saws. I cut to these lines, and they didn't need any fine tuning after using the saw.

    Glue type won't matter much, or even if you use any with good fitting mortises and tenons. I don't use any building window sash, house doors, or shutters when replacing them in very old houses, just...

    I run my Centauro 24" 10% over normal speed when making shingles using a VFD. It will run for an hour at the time, and the motor never gets warm. That's through soft Cypress though, and never over...

    The only reason that blade ever comes off my 24" saw is to put on a cheap, non-carbide tipped one in questionable wood that has any chance of damaging a carbide tooth.

    I recently used a no.8 to take a slight amount of twist out of some 12' long handrail pieces. I hold the plane in the plane I want to finish with, and it only hits the parts that need to come off. ...

    I bought some a few days ago. 2x12x16 was $45, but a 2x4x12 was $15.

    $396 worth in this picture in the back of my pickup.

    The Sigma Power, or Power Select II (I forget which it is) 400 stone is a really nice, and fast cutting stone. I go from it to 1,000. It cuts so fast that few strokes are needed on it, so I haven't...

    I had done what Kev posted about texts. They are put in a separate list, but I still get the text chime alert that I'm getting one, so I have to look for nothing.

    Yes, but there are almost an endless number of them. With the calls, there is a setting to "Block unknown callers", which blocks calls from anyone not in your Contacts list, but it doesn't block...

    Lumber prices have come down some

    ...but still expensive. This is $396 worth of treated lumber I picked up this morning. The 2x12x16 was $45, which was a little over half what they were a few months back. The last ones I bought...

    I know about blocking individual numbers, but it would be nice to be able to block texts unless they were in the Contacts list, like you can do for phone calls. I'm never bothered with phone calls...

    I needed some 5/8" x 9" galvanized ones last week. I didn't spend any time shopping for them longer than typing in the Amazon search window. I think it was $60 for 25. They were on our deck in two...

    I don't know who makes them, but they're pretty good for the cost. We have some in bedrooms of a rental house, and they look fine.

    I never had one that wasn't completely worn out after five or six years, so I never saw that problem.

    Yes, but can mean the difference between starting with 400, or 2,000. If it only needs 2,000, it won't take long.

    Those switches just plug into a receptacle, and are easy to change, if it's like the ones I'm used to. Electronics cleaner might keep it going for a while, but once they get intermittent, I'd just...

    I have used Tremont cut nails. They don't have as much taper as what box stores sell as cut nails these days, but still more than I'd like. I'm fortunate to still have some mostly full 50 pound...

    I don't think brake cleaner is Acetone. I keep a gallon of Acetone for various jobs, and brake cleaner doesn't have the smell, or evaporate as quickly. Acetone will take some paints off, but brake...
