    Pictures show only the wiring on the cyclone as it came from Oneida 12 years ago. I will check the wire colors inside the outlet to see if a hot leg is white causing confusion to the HVAC guy.

    I was into floating tenon joinery before Domino came out. I was making my own tenons back then. I purchased a Domino when it first came out. One of the upsides of this was not having to make my...

    I have not used it yet, but it seems to be high quality. I went with this because of higher capacity battery (CR123) and higher resolution compared to Wixey, etc. I have some low cost digital...

    It is Proscale 190-10. Normally $399, but they have been running a $100 discount for sometime.
