    Perhaps the FCC's position on municipal broadband systems will change. The former chairman Ajit Pai was not helpful - to say the least - when communities wanted to establish their own systems. Pai...

    Keep a watch on Walmart's web site. SWMBO like their coffee creamer stuff. During the height of the 'great disappearance' we thought sure it was discontinued, it was hard to find the name brand stuff...

    New Triton fixed base router

    I don't recall seeing any mention of this before receiving a Rockler catalog. I'm guessing I received the catalog because I'm within a reasonable distance of a new Rockler store in Moorestown NJ....

    Hadn't thought about Ammonia but yeah, that'd probably discourage 'em. I was thinking bear spray but you'd have to have it with you when you need it.

    In some cases I think there is a difference between name brand and store brand good. A recent example for us is canned asparagus. The store brand sometimes had hard (old I guess) pieces that the...

    Our default store is Giant, owned by Ahold Delhaize (according to Wikipedia at least). That company also owns Food Lion, Stop & Shop and Hannaford. Their store brand goods have increased in price,...

    If I understand correctly, you might not want to start/stop a TEFC motor that often. Dust collectors with TEFC motors usually have a limit of 4 - 6 starts/hour. Universal motors don't have the same...

    I imagine the need to add moisture depends on where you are. If you're in high desert where relative humidity is 10% -15% or winter in a heated shop in a cold climate you'd probably need to add a...

    There was an effort to promote hemp during WW II when traditional rope making fiber supplies were under Japanese control. A few wild descendants of those efforts can still be found in the midwest.

    It does seem like HF is trying to up their game. I haven't bought any of their icon branded tools but their pricing and handling them makes me think they're comparable to Husky or Kobalt hand tools....

    I too would go for the Forstner bit, I think it would leave the cleanest hole bottom unless that doesn't matter. MLCS has a 2 3/4" for $30.95 with free shipping. Prices do increase with size. I...

    Alder can also do a fair imitation of cherry with the right stain. I bought a couple alder boards to match existing and cherry would have been cheaper. Of course I'm on the wrong coast for alder.

    I don't know about baking soda but a fairly weak solution of lye will turn cherry red instantly. Maybe follow up with baking soda to neutralize the lye? Not a chemist.
