    Steinway Piano makes four standard sizes of grand pianos. S, M, L, and D. S for small, M for medium, and L for large. D is for Damn Large. Maybe the D is for Damn good Mortiser.

    Amana is a close second behind Whiteside for me too. Back in the mid '70's, a salesman gave me a new brand of bit to try. He was trying to get local building suppliers to start selling their router...

    I have one little crimper that will work when the handled type won't fit. It's a little machined block of steel, with two bolts that tighten the two halves together. Mine is smaller than the one in...

    The same "air ride" (or at least that's what some call it)seat is available on most of the high end mowers, including on top of the Ferris suspension. You probably have to test drive one to really...

    I bought an Exaktor, and have no complaints with it. One of the reasons I bought it was because of the 4" duct size. I think it's been in use for about ten years, and we've had no problems with it....

    That's what I used in the old house. It's been so long ago, that I don't remember the size of the conduit, but I think 1-1/2. We still used home runs to a manifold. It was very little trouble...

    I've been tempted to go back with one when Zoro has them for 20% off. If they had one available with a diamond wheel, and you didn't have to buy the friable one, I'd be a go. If they made one with...

    New password will be on the back of the new router. You can change it to something else. Other than that, plug, and play. You can get pretty good ones for less than $100, but in any case, even the...

    How about an eye in the end of a line, to a turning block on the ceiling, and another somewhere on the outside wall, down to a cleat for the line. When you need to lift something, lower the eye...

    I would not put any type of connectors buried in concrete. I'd use home runs to a manifold that is accessible.

    Better yet would be plastic conduit to pull it through. I have done that in...

    When pulling up particleboard underlayment, it's easier to take it up intact. Here's my method. I walk around on knee pads, with a cat's paw nail puller, I drive it under the head of a nail with...

    Sometimes even in the same casting, there can be relatively soft areas, and harder than it seems like possible areas, depending on the care in the whole casting process. The engine block I had to...

    I'm getting a Ferris, that has a suspension system. No experience with the brand, but I figured it would be the last one I buy, and didn't want to do any more bouncing around. I did check what...

    I guess my set of hollows and rounds is a bastard part double harlequin set. There may be some matches, but in no particular order. I recently used them to change the profile cut by a sash plane,...

    I wouldn't worry so much about exactly how many teeth are in the cut. It shouldn't take very long, maybe practicing in some scrap, to see what a saw will do. When I first started building houses, I...

    The luxury vinyl doesn't even nail down. It snaps together like laminate does, and lays there. You could even take it with you when you leave. There are even versions with real wood surfacing. I...

    1/2" plywood was the standard subfloor, for decades, after they stopped using diagonally laid 1x boards.

    When I started building houses in 1973, for a living, this is the way they were typically done for a couple of decades, so I have some feel for the materials. I'm assuming that the thickness of the...

    Regardless of what you end up pulling the wire through, it will save a lot of headaches if you rig up something for the wire to unspool off of. 500', and up rolls come on nice spools that you only...

    My first choice on burial conduit is to use black polyethylene pipe. It's available in long, continuous lengths, so you can pull wires both ways with no worry of hangups on the joints. The plastic...
