    Like Tom, I did every repair. If you want to make money on rentals, you need to do that. I really didn't have any serious problems with my tenants, either in damage or in paying rent on time. Do a...

    I don't have any rental properties right now but have in the past. I agree with what Frank said. Couple of pieces of advice:

    1. Get one close to your home. I expect you'll do the repairs and...

    The CFM is mainly an issue of how fast you can get the air out of the bag after you turn the vacuum pump on. Once you have vacuum pulled, a very small pump will maintain it.

    If you have a low CFM...

    You can get by without a bottom platen but use breather mesh (see Joe Woodworker for that). Then you can roll up your bag when not using it.

    My advice is to buy a 4x8 as your first bag. You...

    From some research I've done, prior to the 19th century, about 40% of children never lived to their 16th birthday. Almost all deaths from disease. That's from memory - I don't have the data in...

    I've had an Epson tank type printer for several years and have never had a clog. It does get used almost every day.

    I think it would carry 3,000 pounds, but there have been situations where the supports have been compromised by rust or rot and the balcony came down when a bunch of people were on it.

    I wouldn't...

    I was told the same thing. Then I started using hot hide glue and learned differently. Jim and John are right. Anything that fills the pores of the wood will show through a finish.

    Hide glue will certainly show under a finish. You may have to sand the areas where the hide glue was in order to remove it. Similar to what you'd have to do with PVA.

    The differences you mention are in the circuit feeding the motor. If the circuits are properly sized so that the voltage drop during startup or running is the same percentage in either the 120V or...

    I tried one of those attachments one time. First, there's the setup and teardown time. And while you have the attachment on, you can't use the drill press as a drill press. Then the arm of the...

    As far as mortises go, I drill them out with my drill press, and then trim up the sides of the mortise with a standard bench chisel.

    You need a cheap VOM (volt ohm meter). With that, you can check for continuity across the fuse. You can also test to see if you have power in various places in the machine.

    If you're doing a tenon that has shoulders, what most people do is to cut a bevel around the top of the mortise, so the excess glue has some place to go and doesn't squeeze out.

    Epoxy is one thing I mix more than I need. It's not that expensive (I have a gallon of West Systems) and I don't want to run out when I'm using it. I don't mind throwing some away.

    I've been in the engine room of a medium sized ship and the sound is deafening. I can imagine what it was like in the engine room of the diesel/electric submarines used in WWII.

    Yep, you could take the components of a hive (bottom board, brood box and top) and strap them together and put that up in a tree. According to Seeley, "Honeybee Democracy," the scout bees look for a...

    If he did capture a swarm at this time of year, it would not have enough time to build up supplies to survive the winter in his area.

    That's a pretty elaborate swarm trap, also.
