    That Makita router isn't designed for fault tolerance, it's call FMEA or failure mode effects analysis. We can be grateful those Makita engineers don't work in the appliance or automotive...

    I always equip my CPMS and SCMS with a negative hook angle toothed blade. That way I can cut non-ferrous metal along with wood. On my 12" Dewalt SCMS I bought a Dewalt 96T negative hook blade to...

    I bet that "same guy" was the kid that ran across your freshly mowed lawn you could never catch. He's grown up and haunting you!

    Perhaps this is like a fart in Church but I really like the chip breakers that accompany Hock and IBC blades. The "extra" thick IBC set matches my post WWII Norris infill set.

    I use the hated Harbor Freight grinder stand with a set of their 2" braked casters but I don't think it's stable enough for a wide range of users. I'd built a sturdy, stable base cabinet with...

    10 minutes would be increadibly fast for the v belt. Replacing the gilmer/poly v belt requires pulling the main arbor. 10 minutes would be spectacular for both. By the time I go to the trouble of...

    For 30 years I had a benchtop Craftsman 150 without a rack&pinion lift and never liked moving the table vertically. I finally popped for a used Jet 16.5" with rack&pinion lift and couldn't be...

    I have an old Craftsman 6" 3400rpm grinder. Even with white grinding wheels it's faster/hotter than I like for sharpening lathe chisels. I recently bought a Rikon 1800rpm 1/2hp grinder with white...

    Not all burn 1qt per 1000miles. But a small percentage do. And anyone that thinks there's a remedy hasn't read the T&Cs signed at the time of purchase. Lemon laws are very clear and specific....

    Aldi and Trader Joe's are owned by the same conglomerate and many products are the same with different packaging.

    I'm not arguing the point. I am explaining how modern engines with looser, reduced tension piston rings can have relatively high oil consumption and still be considered inside the specification. ...

    The cited article I quoted calls the rings as "reduced tension" not "thinner" as you claim. The change and it's effect are well known. And rings haven't needed to "break in" for at least 4...

    You almost got it right. Yes, engines are designed to burn oil, all of them do it to some degree. But the question is how much is acceptable. (I promise you even your best and most favorite engine...

    Modern engines have looser piston rings to help with gas mileage. Specifying maximum of 1qt per 1000 miles is pretty standard amongst the various manufacturers. Some individual engines are worst...

    I incorrectly assumed in a quality build such as this one vapor barrier would be used. Are there circumstances where a vapor barrier doesn't make things better? I understand it's code most places.
