    These aluminum shimms are 1/64" thick. Convenient as I measure in inches and fractions.

    Yeah, making a kill shot on a fast moving dog while missing the person or pet he's attacking (especially if that's the gun holder) is a low probability thing. Bear spray seems like a better option.

    Aligning Drawer Fronts

    Measuring carefully still left the fronts just a little misaligned. Here's my approach to getting the left and right sides to hit the stops evenly.

    There should be no lubricant on the nut, spindle or washer. A toothbrush a rag and the right solvent will fix it. Dish soap should do it but since it is also a lubricant it will require sufficient...

    Gladly

    Mitering provides the most glue surface

    None of the surfaces are strictly end grain.

    Dog Attack

    There are dogs in the world and sometimes they attack. That is not going to change. So here is my question. If I have no weapons and no objects within reach how can I best defend myself? Maybe the...

    Don't miss out on the option of variable speed on a table saw. It runs much quieter, makes bigger, more easily captured saw dust, throws stuff more gently and is just a more mellow machine. And the...

    One more way to go would be a birdhouse hinge. Just drive a nail thru each end into the lid. You will have to round over the back edge of the top. This works great for the front of a birdhouse so you...

    However you do it, make a few practice runs first. A drill this size will tend to wallow out the side grain. And if the grain is not straight and of even hardness it may vary from one test to the...

    Top it with a baking pan or tray flipped over to shed the meltwater. Add peel and stick sandpaper if you need traction.

    Just guessing here on the practicalities.

    For car tires I use a hand pump. Good exercise and quiet. I keep a compressor in the basement but it takes something more than one tire to motivate me to carry it up the stairs.

    You said the tree is 20 feet tall. How are they getting the high fruit?

    Maybe you have persimmon locusts or bats.
