    Too true. Anybody in this business/hobby is going to perforate themselves periodically. It's why I'll never have a tattoo. I poke enough holes in myself by accident that I have no desire to do so on...

    Interesting bit about the Surgeon General's office. They do appear to hold legitimate military rank.

    Historically low mortgage interest rates probably have something to do with home demand. I use traffic levels as an imperfect measure of how economic activity is doing. The published numbers have a 3...

    A dial indicator will work for sure but there are alternatives. I didn't have a dial indicator when I got my Griz 1023 so used a board with a screw in the end clamped to a miter gauge. The miter...

    I can't comment on the infinity blades but if it were me, I'd look at HSS knives from sources other than DeWalt. The DeWalt blades have had a reputation for being not very durable.

    +1 on practicing. If you can find large sheets of cardboard that is good. Keep the gun perpendicular to the work piece from end to end, don't swing it in an arc. Keep the trigger squeezed over the...

    I was thinking about a truss arrangement as well. Alternatively, I wonder how channel iron attached the 'flat' way compares to angle iron for deflection.

    With some sort of jig to hold the Dremel tool steady that might be the simplest. What little I've worked with Corian says a plane ain't gonna cut it. The recommendation to find a piece of scrap is a...

    We replaced the original water heater with a new one about 10 years ago. It has a pilot light and I see that as an advantage in the event of an extended power outage during cold weather.

    I used 3/4" ply for a microwave cabinet and cut 45* miters on the table saw to join the edges. I cut biscuit slots in the mitered edges and glued them up. Once dry I moistened the very edges of the...

    I only have one DRO on a Jointer/Planer. My primary reason is that I may have to plane, joint then have to back and plane another piece the same thickness. I went with the 12" iGaging and it has been...

    For sure the blade needs to be parallel to the miter slot and the fence needs to be parallel to the blade/miter slot. I use the left miter slot because that's where I use miter gauges and jigs most...

    Leave the tail gate up and put the sheet goods on top. I've been doing that for years (decades) with Ford Rangers. Just gotta pay attention to the weather. A trailer is also viable as long as you...

    You're certainly not wrong about cheap belts and pulleys contributing to vibration. I have a Delta radial drill press (from when I didn't know any better and thought Delta was the be-all end-all when...

    That may be in part because Firefox's share in mobile is minuscule. However Firefox has something called user agent switching (I think that's what it's called) which can make Firefox say "Oh hi there...

    It may be an issue with your browser. I use Firefox with some add-ons and finding a local store involves restarting Firefox in safe mode which disables add-ons. Or use a different browser - I use...

    What Frank said. If you have a bearings and drives or power transmission place nearby you could check with them. Otherwise Rikon has a pretty good reputation for customer service.

    That's clever David. I was more crude, just twisted the coupling over the hose and slathered some silicone sealant in the coupling before beginning which probably helped the hose slide in the...

    Non-event for sure but "Why isn't this stupid light working?" There are more than a few people who do well to install a tube, let alone install an unfamiliar type correctly.

    Another 'oops' I can see is if someone not knowledgeable installs a hot-on-one-end tube backwards, the non powered end of the tube in the powered tombstones.
