    Here's a tidbit I learned from my bro-in-law that owns a fire/mold restoration and cleaning business. Bleach is one of the more effective ways to kill mold, but only what it actually comes into...

    John,

    I really like your setup. I wouldn't mind having 2 lathes, but this one takes up too much real estate to be a spare. Plus the shaft has some slight runout and the tailstock takes some...

    I've looked briefly at wood pellet mills, but I don't make enough sawdust or shavings to justify the investment in time and equipment for a new hobby. I believe the investment would pay off quickly,...

    Beautiful work!

    I did a similar piece last year from a holly stump. After I got the outside done and sanded I wrapped it in several layers of packing cellophane and it held together very well. My...

    Filip,

    Glad you took a shot at it! I know you'll get it to work, just be safe about it and attach the grinder and tool rest to the same base. One thing that can be said about the Chinese is that...

    Correct. The holly stumps sat on the ground at my mom's house for about a year before I had the opportunity to take them home. They were not really punky, but there wasn't anything I could do for the...

    Thanks Brian! Yes, the light is a small LED flashlight. In hindsight I should have bought ones that were uniform diameter and/or a standard size. The lights I used were 1-1/16 at the body and about...

    On my off-brand mortiser it isn't so much the chisel bending as the entire mechanism torquing out of alignment. If I tighten everything up so that it doesn't shift at all I can't hardly pull the ram...
