    I have a broker but don't get any meaningful advice. I don't pay any fees but any trades have a steep commission. I talked to Fisher but they charge 1.25% to manage while Vanguard charges .3%. Not...

    Got my pump replaced and it wasn't to bad. Still don't have the energy to test it right now but I have faith it will work. I mainly just wanted to get the pump off my shop floor.

    Gas here but am needing to replace the pump. I bought the replacement but can't seem to muster up the will to swap it out. Something that I regard as a must is to get the telescoping extension wand....

    Good stuff, I haven't attempted a chair yet but this is one less thing to drive me crazy.

    I have often felt that a task like ripping a bunch of thin strips at a time is the most dangerous type of cut. You develop a rhythm in bringing back the board and clearing the off cut to go into the...

    May not be what you want to hear but ply that has been under stress (bowing) for ten years may resist an effort to bring back to plumb. I would redo the carcass and either move to a quality slide...

    When I started woodworking other than contacting the blade I had no idea kick back was a thing. I did however take in any safety videos I could get my hands on and have since modified my standing...

    It is funny, I hear scrub, fore and jack almost used interchangeably at times. Sometimes it is a function of region, time period, others it is how you were raised (instructed) or just a matter of...

    There is dollar cost averaging and nothing wrong with that. In fact a lot of people sleep well at night not needing to pay attention to the market swings. If I feel the market is at or near highs I...

    I have my Fathers old Craftsman No. 4 sized plane set up as a scrub and also bought a bastard Stanley No. 78 and made it a scrub because Paul Sellers seems to like that version. I don't see myself as...

    For rip cutting long pieces band saws are great but crosscutting long pieces not great. I hate the room that chop saws take up and the dust they create but that is an option. A nice old school miter...

    I don't think most pieces are uniform moisture throughout. Seasons change so wood will be absorbing or releasing. Place a cut in the piece and what was deeper is now surface and can now do both...

    I did utilize the space between the studs when it was a storage building but when I moved the use to a shop I insulated and ran 1/2" ply on the walls after running electrical. Yes it is space but in...

    Wood moves and keeps moving. Doesn't hurt to let it sit for awhile but yes, if you cut it further the process starts over. Tom, is this a laminated top? I have seen many people stress over biscuits...
