    For a one mile move, I'd use the tractor, with loader, and not even bother with a trailer. What you want to move is pretty simple. Even the Uhaul trucks have ramps for the back.

    I thrown away enough cheaper multi-meters, of various types, to have bought a Fluke to start with. Now the only ones are Fluke, except for one Fieldpiece in the HVAC toolbox.

    I keep a thin aluminum angle to put against the table saw fence when cutting Formica. It just keeps it from going under the edge of the fence by riding it on top of the angle.

    I would have to do each to think about what it sounds like. I couldn't begin to tell you. It's not something I think about. Probably as much feel as sound.

    I do the same for anything from the 1/8" blade on one of the 10" saws, to the 1" blade on the 24" saw. The first cut, if you want to make a test cut, will show if it's okay. Never had a problem...

    If the keys are Ivory, I'd be interested in buying a couple, if they're close to the right size that we need. We have a 1934 Steinway M, with a couple of chipped key edges.
