    When you have a bad tooth or three, repair is the thing. When you bury a blade in a SawStop's block of aluminum at great force with a sudden stop, it's not just teeth that can be affected. New blade...

    I made the move to get feeling back in my hands. The PC sanders I used early on would cause me to lose that feeling in only a short period of time. So in addition to dust collection, the better...

    Well...Freddie was Freddie, but Adam Lambert is doing a bang up job with the band. He doesn't try to be Freddie, either. Subjective, of course. :)

    Yea, prices have really come down on all kinds of LED lighting. That's why I'll likely use those instead of buying more of the Feit fixtures from Costco at this point when I put up the new shop. The...

    Derek, I'd suggest you get some additional quotes for that work. $4000, even with the wire run you mention is "a whole bunch of money". The panel and breaker to feed it is under $200, so the rest is...

    You may not be able to rent the 6x12 with the Outback, but you can test it on their site. The process requires indicating the make, model, trim, etc., of the vehicle you have and they match that up...

    Around here, bases are either concrete or a molded composite material, or if wall mounted, metal. I honestly wouldn't use wood for this application.

    You will not likely have too much of a learning curve, Bruce, especially if you are comfortable with Win10/Win11. The Finder (file/folder browser) works a little differently than the equivalent on...

    Yes, it's not inexpensive but the Federal tax benefit combined with "not buying" a generator helps balance a nice chunk of that. The proposals I was considering were all in the $35K range (after tax...

    Heating things up seems to help any partially drying paint to peel off. I can clean my gun in about five minutes and that includes waiting for the water to get hot. :)

    I've carried 16' boards on the centerline of my 5x8 utility trailer. 10-12 footers are a piece of cake. (My trailer is open, flat bed, but even if I put on the sides I made, I created it so that the...

    Poor condition inside and out and a fuel leak. 168+K miles. Not really set up well for getting stuff in and out because the rear door is narrow. I think you can see that for me, it would be a "no"....

    Dennis, no, that is not normal. And keep in mind that cabinet saws are built differently than contractor's style saws and many hybrids...they are beefier and the trunnions hang from the cabinet with...

    The battery backup design that I had in our solar proposals would cover our normal "reasonable" usage for about three days if necessary as that was my requirement. That was by using two full Generac...
