    As the story goes, after the Model T had been out for quite a few years, Henry Ford sent a team of men to scour junkyards around the country for junked Model Ts to be sent back to Dearborn, Michigan...

    For the OP's benefit, it may be the angle of the camera distorting things, but the photos above imply way more burnisher tilt angle than optimal.
    An exaggerated angle will create an excessive burr...

    You've already gotten some good suggestions. To throw another one into the mix, you could check out the square drive NoCoRode line of screws from McFeely's. I think they also stock stainless and...

    A Coronavirus therapy project

    Hi,
    I was suffering from Coronavirus blues last week and decided to shut out the news, go into the shop and concentrate on a bite sized project that might put me in a Zen state.

    I always thought it was a government agency, whether direct or indirect.
    But now you have me wondering. If the government doesn't run it, then who does?

    Have you ever seen one in person? The true Krenov style cabinet on stand is surprisingly diminutive. It's not as much weight up high as you might think. I say this because it was a surprise to me...

    Hello Brian,
    To add some fuel to this fire, when I was growing up in India, we referred to the garment you're describing as a singlet. I always thought it was a holdover from British colonial days,...

    I agree with this, although I confess it took me a while to realize it. Just today, I did exactly what Bill is describing with a scraper that once upon a time, I would have gone back to file and...

    I think the Carter Stabilizer will meet your needs very well. I keep a 1/8" blade around and I use it mainly for cutting sign letters. If the work you're cutting is any thicker than 1/2" or so, you...

    If I may ask, what type of work are you doing with such narrow blades?

    The common objection I hear with the Carter Stabilizer is that it is a pain to frequently install and remove. If you are...

    Is there some reason just setting up folders in your PC will not work for you? Like a folder called Renovation, and subfolders under that for maybe Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC, Cabinetry and Millwork,...

    The capital gain exemption on a personal residence is $250K for single and $500K married filing jointly. So for the vast majority of Americans it's a non-issue because they will not hit or exceed the...

    Brian, IMO the issue of stock buybacks, even the recent criticism of them, is considerably more complicated than you may think. There are arguments in favor and arguments against. Given your interest...

    Thanks all for the compliments!

    David, in answer to your question, you're absolutely right. The second table was intentional, drawn on paper and not done on the fly like the first.

    I might suggest you look into the Keller dovetail jig. It will do box joints perfectly, and it will do an unlimited length. All you have to do is unclamp the jig and keep moving it down, keeping...

    I see you're in CA. I'm speculating, but could environmental regulations in your state have something to do with it?
    Same reasons some of the VOC containing wood finishes have been dropped?

    Could hitting it with a heat gun soften up the "gunk" enough to scrape or wipe it off? Can't see how it would harm a steel rule. Just wear leather gloves.
