    I hate pegboard. I hate all the flimsy little hooks and whatnot. I keep my small power tools and kind of general household tools in a big rolling chest. My hand tools all fit into ad hoc wall...

    I went to college. I regret it. If I had it to do over again I would learn a trade, probably electrical or metal fabricating. I came here as an immigrant in my teenage years and at the time did...

    I don't think this should be a problem for new boxes that follow the fill rules. I have this problem in my house with older work when I have to replace a device or something.

    My 5 1/2 often gets used as a smoother, so I guess we are essentially doing the same thing. For me the 6 is set up with a very cambered blade more like a traditional fore plane. I also use the 5...

    I find it very useful for trimming tenon cheeks and adjusting grooves on the edge of panels. I prefer it over a shoulder plane because it is wider and can be handled with one hand. It easier to...

    I try to avoid giving people gift cards, and never use the "prepaid" cards. The only exception is some of the at-risk youth my wife and I have mentored. We give them grocery store or clothes store...

    Thanks, all. I spent a few minutes with the tone on a diamond plate and it seems better. More to come.
  13. Do oil stones need to be "broken in"?

    In an effort to spend less time stropping I bought a "black surgical Arkansas" stone. I've never actually had a new natural stone before. This stone seems to be anything but "surgical" and leaves a...

    Are the trim stop and cross stop interchangeable for both machines? That is, if I bought the 500 in a kit could I buy the 700 and use the accessories from the 500?
