    I don't know if it's the 21 framing hammer but my HF frammer had got me through a couple of additions and a remodeling job. Pretty much went through a large box of nails, all without a single jam....

    Strange fact of life. For the first 24 years of our marriage my wife's grandparents lived within a 10 minute walk of Highland Hardware (old name). I used to drive by it at least twice a month and...

    If it's for your use than I say do whatever it takes to make it work. 4 weeks from now you will not even think about the mods you did.

    I haven't but I wish some folks would chime in about them. My birthday is coming up and Rockler has a sale on them.

    If you've already cut it, go ahead and use the 3/4 ply. If not, then 1/2" is more than strong enough. Heck, most of us use 1/4" with brads and that still works for about 95% of applications. A lot of...

    I know what you mean. In my younger days I could climb all over a roof with nary a care. Now I'm about 59 and I know my balance is not what it used to be. I'll still get on a low pitch roof but...

    I have a $20 HF recip saw that I've used off and on for years. It's lived long past it's expected life. If it fails tomorrow, I'll have no regrets.

    I don't make my living with tools so I buy Harbor Freight for those seldom needed tools. That said, several of their tools have lived long past what I was expecting. The one tool unused that stand...

    Years ago I was rebuilding a set of stairs. We wanted to use the existing stringers so we pried off the old treads, only to discover they were installed with lots of construction adhesive. After the...

    One of the visual appeals of older antique furniture is that way back then, it was frequently dusted then buffed with paste wax. Now, we coat everything in urethane. Sometimes older is better.

    Bob, I could have posted the same reply. As an old school recently retired photographer, I've used Eneloops for years and they have never leaked or let me down.

    For most of my cast iron tools Johnson Paste Wax works great for preventing rust. Even left uncovered for months at a time. The only exception is my SawStop. Even with two coats of wax it will start...

    Mine is a fiber cement siding shear cutter. For years I've ruined many a saw blade and endured cutting with a dust mask until our last remodel. I figured $150 was OK for a new tool since I seemed to...

    OK Bruce, you've peaked my interest. I live near Clemson so the next time I drive by the rest stop I'm going to have to stop and inspect the "fanny floss"!

    Funny, I've used all three Titebonds and polyurethane glue. The only glue failure I can remember was from using Gorilla Glue. 1x6 trim board just fell off after a few months. Never tried it again.

    OK, I'll fess up. I turn my dust collector on and off all the time. I have a remote in my shop apron so it makes it easy. My dust collector is not in a separate sound proof room. It makes a lot of...
