    Thanks. Yes, the walls are 3/8 inch T1-11 exterior plywood. The finish is Minwax Polycrylic, one coat, sprayed on. If I hadn’t seen the sheets being sprayed, I would not know they did it. It is...

    Thanks for the compliments. I like the way it looks too. A timber frame woodworking shop needs to have an upgraded handrail from 2x2 pickets. JWKMH and I went up to the shop after supper to sit on...

    I am happy to see that a lot of people have solved this problem. I am working more shop hours per week than ever before, and my feet have complained the most about it. I wear “walking” shoes which...

    Bad Day in the Shop

    I am finishing up the Chinese Chippendale handrail on the shop porch. Yesterday, I had a bad day. Nothing serious or unfixable. I wound up with a few extra holes that will be covered and maybe a...

    If you run the jointer without the dust collector turned on, it plugs pretty quickly. My Powermatic 6Ē jointer has a plastic 4Ē adapter over the chute. Take it off to get a better look up the...

    Years ago, I bought a Crowne square with brass bound, “rosewood” head and blued steel blade. It arrived significantly out of square. It was pretty so I used for decoration on the shop tool wall. I...

    Thanks. I will try the blue tape and CA for sure. The Rockler dots are probably just one of the roll tapes repurposed into a different form. The idea does point out that amount of adhesion can be...

    Based on the success of “ugly” tool organizer, you should probably trust your own design instincts.

    On another subject, could you send some of that white oak to the lower 48?

    The sound comes from vibration. The vibration comes from imbalance in the rotating mass and manufacturing imperfections like run out. The magnitude of the oscillation is dependent on the stiffness...

    Supergluing the blue tape to the template is a great idea that I had not considered. Thanks. I have seen lots of tips about using double stick tape but not for a brand of low to intermediate bond. ...

    Best removable double faced tape

    I am looking for a double-faced tape to temporarily attach a guide or template to a work piece. It has to be removable without damaging the work. In other words, strong enough to hold the guide in...

    I spent 6 hours in the shop today. I donít think I got as much done as you, and I was using power tools. I am sure I did not have as much fun.

    As usual, David is correct. I was in a hurry and doing the derivation in my head. The corrected formula is TC= 4400/(.99*500)= 8.889, CF=2000*exp(-11/8.889)=580.2 particles/m*3.

    Stop the presses, my equation for cleaning is wrong. For a perfectly mixed volume, the removal is an exponential decay. The time constant is volume divided by volumetric flow, TC=4400/500 minutes=...
