    I watch CL all the time, and see those types of cheap mixers on there often. I expect people buy them for one job, and then don't want to store them. Might be worth a look, and then sell it if you...

    I bought a couple of 1/4" blue handled Marples (could have had the Record name on one, or both-don't know-don't care)off of the auction site for next to nothing, with free shipping, and ground them...

    Last night, all through the night, my phone rang 8 times. Each of those times was followed immediately by another call after I let the first set of rings finish. I looked at it the first couple of...

    Yes, where we have yard type grass, it's either Centipede, or Bermuda, and does get cut low.

    The only thing that I know will effectively kill plants through the roots, is Imprazar. It's first...

    For about as long as they have been available, I use the double switches that have a regular toggle lever on one side, and a row of buttons on the other side that are different length timed cycles. ...

    Thanks. They're not quite four feet tall. The rafters were about 3x3's 20 feet long, and had sagged about 5 inches in the middle. Some had split. With opposing wedges over those trusses, also...

    I wouldn't mind, as long as you're pulling with more than a 3/4 ton gas burner. Back when that was the largest truck we had, when we went after a load of hay out of the field-always in the hottest...

    I'm not recommending you try this at home, but..... It takes a combination of Roundup, 2,4,D, and Imprazar to kill Johnson Grass, and it can't be sprayed too late in the Fall, or it will come back...

    I'll agree with that. Framer series lumber is Yellow Pine framing lumber like it used to be. I used it building these trusses in an 1850 attic to fix a terribly sagging roof. I haven't seen YP...

    It might look like I'm wearing a shirt when I'm working, but really, I'm breaking in new shop rags. If one gets damaged beyond being useful on my back, the white T-shirt joins others in the shop rag...

    The BIN is what we always use too. On those beaded plywood pieces, and MDF battens, we just hit it in both directions with a fine sanding sponge, and that's all the sanding it needs.
