    The only one I have used is Sketchup, and I am using Sketchup Make 2017. It took me a while to learn how to use it well enough that using it was efficient, and if I don't use it frequently enough, I...

    Owl is my go-to place for "special" woods and for times I need only a few boards. As you noted, they are helpful and have great stock. Everything is S2S, so you can easily pick the pieces that fit...

    I think that the fact that they don't take money and won't even take advertising in their magazine is their main asset. What I don't understand is how every thing I have purchased on their...

    Someone who actually sands to 1200 can probably give you an actual grit progression to use. All I can tell you is that going from 120 to 220 is too large a jump, but you can easily skip some of the...

    I bought a Fuji VFD from Wolf Automation and have been very happy with it. The Fuji manuals are likely better than what you'd get with a VFD from eBay, which I have read are pretty bad. Wolf's...

    Setting aside the unfounded commentary on the mind-set of the people who passed the ordinance, let's look at the facts. Berkeley has opted in to a source of electric power that is 100% carbon-free,...

    As nearly everyone has said, yes to a fan vented to the outside. A big yes to a timer switch. Not only does it shut the fan off if you forget, it also runs the fan for a sufficient amount of time...
