    The person from whom I purchased my Grizzly G0715P rewired it from 240VAC to 120VAC. I plan to convert it back but so far, I have operated it on a 120VAC, 20 amp circuit without a problem. You might...

    Your choice of lumber size seems like huge overkill to me. Kayaks weigh less than a hundred pounds but your proposed structure will support thousands of pounds per boat if I understand what you are...

    Come on guys! The original poster stated that he currently owns a Ridgid 3650. He is bound to know what it is like to use a low power table saw. I recently went from a Ridgid 3650 to a nearly new...

    Sounds to me like the real problem is that the State legislatures in the Exception States are creating rules that limit consumer choice rather than a problem with HD. California is famous for doing...

    Most commercial "wiping" varnishes are a blend of oil and varnish. Also, at least one popular home recipe for wiping varnish contains boiled linseed oil.

    Natural gas (methane) has exactly two combustion products. Those are carbon dioxide and water. How is that different in one environment versus another? I cannot believe that less total CO2 is...

    Old growth cypress is another excellent choice if you can find it. There are 30 year old duck boxes made out of it still in service at the wildlife refuge near me.

    Apparently, they prefer that their citizens consume natural gas by using electricity from natural gas fed power plants in other States rather than consuming it directly.

    There are other substantially cheaper alternatives to Hammer or Felder. I own a Jet JP12-HH that works well for me. I had issues to start with but they have been worked out.

    I must confess that I didn't read all the previous posts on this rather simple question but I will tell you why I went from a 6 inch jointer to a 12 inch jointer. For decades, the 6 inch worked okay....

    I make and sell trivets in hardwood carved with a CNC router. I have done extensive testing in my own house using various finishes and hot casserole dishes right out of the oven. I have found that...

    I am not sure whether it would be cost effective but a lot of us could do the cutting using a CNC router.

    Think about it. If a manufacturer could get more out of a compressor by simply installing a different pulley, they would already have done it. The pulley is chosen to obtain the maximum output for...

    Hey, Tesla published information on the towing "feature", not me. I just pointed out its lack of relevancy.

    The specifications probably don't note this but I saw a Youtube video in which the Tesla was used to tow the maximum rated weight. It lasted for less than 60 miles before the battery went flat. That...

    If it is Watco brand Danish Oil, it already contains some varnish. It probably does anyway, regardless of brand. I think it would be preferable to just apply a couple more coats of that to increase...

    Not only do I doubt you can get all the old paint and wood oxidation off, I don't think you can buy a clear coat finish that will last even a year.

    Of course, you will have to plane the wood after it dries. You need to figure on the expense of the planer and the labor to do that.

    The pre-made counter top will move in exactly the same way as one you would build yourself. It is a property of wood, not the result of a build technique.

    The spray can shellac I have used from Zinser does not have a ball in it. The reason is that the solid material dissolves in the alcohol rather than being in suspension like paint or varnish. There...

    I would only like it if they also provide a "Dislike" button. Having only a "Like" button leaves off half the possible information a reader can provide.
