    It just goes with painted doors for it to eventually see the seam. It does the same thing on stained doors but you don't see it. It had to do more with wood movement than the finish. A conversion...

    I've only used Arkansas stones but I never use oil on them. I was taught by a German woodcarver to keep them in water 24/7 and even though they are 40 years old work like new. The water rusts away...

    I don't know hard you have used the knock out tool. I think the only risk in getting more aggressive with it is damaging the knock out tool. I don't see how you could hurt the lathe.

    I have natural arkansas stones. I don't clean them, I keep them in water 24/7. The water will rust away any steel that gets in the pores of the stone. Most of the stones I have are 40 years old and...

    It's my understanding sawdust leaches nitrogen out of the soil. How much of it can a person put around plants anyway. If you had chips you could give it away to pet stores for hamsters. People also...

    If it's grabbing you might set the fence shallow and start the cuts and then put the fence in the right position to make the part. That way it's not hogging all the wood at the initial cut. I don't...

    You would think you use more finish spraying because of the overspray but brushing the finish you tend to apply it thicker so brushing uses about the same amount or less finish than spraying.

    The airbrush would be too small. You could use a cheap harbor freight sprayer to spray the finish. They do well for wood finishes. I use the model #69704 which I get for about twenty bucks with one...

    I've got the Toro 52" and it went back to the shop four times before it had 8 hours on it. Most of the problem was with the cheesy deck belt they make but I don't think I will buy another Toro.

    A gel stain is more like thinned down enamel than stain. It was developed to finish a textured fiberglass door so it could be made to look more like real wood. For that application it was never...

    I've never seen it before. A spar urethane can be used the same as a spar varnish. I know the Helmsman spar urethane is junk but I wonder if the Varathane is a good finish or not.
