    No need to water down the glue, just lay down a thick layer & let it sit 10 minutes, then glue it up. If you let the glue dry thoroughly it will interfere with adhesion. PVA glue does not stick to...

    That's a softwood tariff and wouldn't affect Baltic birch plywood prices though.

    A mitered glue surface is not a strong joint and I wouldn't put screws through a miter because there is way too little thickness for the head to hold well. It isn't strictly end grain, but it might...

    This is too funny. I just called my supplier of choice for some pricing:
    1" Medex, $96.48CAD
    3/4" Medex, $132.00CAD
    18mm BB, 5x5, $177CAD
    18mm BB, 4x8, $165CAD

    BTW, the 4x8 BB is not...

    This forum software is terrible with photos. I don't even bother posting them.

    That looks like it's missing a LOT of parts that I'm sure would be difficult to replace.

    I've had a rental property for 15 or 20 years. For the most part, it is revenue neutral. I did have to kick in some cash a couple of years ago for new roof and furnace. The rent covers mortgage,...

    If that's the case, then Lexel is out. I've never seen one of those mugs and am not familiar with the details.

    It's just to secure the liner to the outer shell. The interior of the mug is not going to be smeared with sealant. And the toluene evaporates as the sealant dries and cures.

    I have a 2.5" flex that drops down from an overhead duct to the blade guard. According to the particle counter, dust collection from the saw is 100%. The only time guard lets anything out is when...

    It also has many times the stretch and recovery of silicone. It's better than silicone in most every way.

    Switch to the standard dust collection guard. It provides near 100% dust capture and doesn't lift the plate at all.
  16. Silicone, contrary to popular belief is not...

    Silicone, contrary to popular belief is not particularly versatile and is not, with a few exceptions, even a good adhesive. There are almost always better choices. It will not adhere well to wood. A...

    There is a class of surge suppressor that, in the event of a surge that it can't handle, has fusible elements that will completely clear the load from the utility. I installed one on a 600A, 3 phase...

    I've had 3 Mazda cars and all were good, but for one Achilles heal - rust. A Mazda will rust out faster than an '70s Honda. If you drive where the roads are salted, you can expect major rust by the...

    $150 is not unreasonable at all for having someone come out to replace a head.

    A leaf blower will not clean the filter nearly as well as compressed air will. It just can't get enough airflow between the pleats to clear out the dust. I've tried both. I do use the leaf blower to...

    Sorry to sound harsh, but that statement is just ridiculous. I get great customer service everyday. It's that bad customer service that is the anomaly.

    They do end up in a compost pile. All solids at the local treatment plant are composted (and very efficiently at that) and sold.
