    I got started turning when my son was in architecture school - I wanted to make a tracing paper dispenser for his...

    I agree - the high voltage by itself is not necessarily a problem but can enable the current to get into the body, "punch" through the skin even if the normal resistance is high from dry skin, in...

    My trench is filled now with three layers of dirt with two 6" wide red "Caution buried electrical lines below" tape embedded. I had to wait for the rare dry days between the rain. The angled dozer...

    I forgot to mention - if you are leaving the firewood outside or in a relative cold place then just bring in enough to burn, I believe the insects will stay dormant and won't come out to mate and lay...

    I thought in an earlier thread you were building a separate shed for the DC and planned to put the doors on the far side away from the house/shop and not worry much about the noise that came through...

    I use a small trim cliipper in places followed by an electric with three rotary blades.

    I had a beard continuously for over 20 years. One day I shaved it off. My kids didn't know me. My...

    I think it is important at the lathe to have several small diameter light sources coming from different directions. This helps me see and judge the compound curves better. It also helps see...

    I had a green Pinto in the early 70's. Loved driving it, handled like a sports car.

    While sitting at a traffic light someone rear-ended and wiped out the car. His insurance paid me more than I...

    I think Stark wants to cut up turning blanks, not resaw veneer. If so the 14" Rikon should be fine. I cut piles of green wood into 100s of turning blanks with an old 14" delta with a riser block,...

    Wow, you must have a lot of extra room! I've had several pianos in my house at once but now I stick with one 7' Baldwin grand. Two people moved that by lifting in a case with handles (after...
  14. Tractor with forks?

    Do you have a neighbor with a tractor or bobcat with forks? That would make easy work of getting it to the door, at least.

    Probably not enough time before the snow and I don't know what the bearing support looks like, but is it possible to repair by welding or machining a replacement? Here on farm I tend to repair...
  17. Rolling pins and handles

    I asked my Lovely Bride (the best gourmet chef/cook/baker in the SouthEast USA, IMHO) if I should make a new rolling pin for her. She was rolling out dough for one of her signature cushaw pies at...

    I have GFCI circuits in my shop. I had to remove the one powering a Jet 1642 EVS lathe. Powering it on would trip the GFCI every time.

    I don't understand that. I've never lost a spring loaded center point from a steb center. There are no set screws. Spring-loaded points have many advantages, especially with thin spindles from...
