    I spray shellac. You do need to lightly sand. The drawers will smell for a while but the smell will eventually go away.

    Some time back, I purchased a package of three deburring wheels. I mounted one and used it but found it too soft for my application. I'm offering the other two (unused) for $15 each plus shipping. ...

    When I had one of those flip clocks, I'd unplug it for a bit more than an hour to set the time back. Then advance it to the correct time.

    Here's a paper on potential relays. From this paper, it looks like the relay is separate from the capacitor.

    My wife inherited four hand saws from her father. She asked me to clean them up which I did. I took the handles off and soaked the saw plates in EvapoRust. Then I refinished the handles. I'll get...

    All the Gast pumps I've ever seen were oilless. But could be that they make a oiled pump.

    I've always used an oilless pump. Some of the oil pumps are designed for air conditioning work. They will pull a very deep vacuum but they're somewhat slow. And you don't need a really hard vacuum...

    It doesn't make a big difference but if you use a fret saw to remove most of the waste you won't have to resharpen when you trim back to the line. A person who is very good with dovetails might be...

    The Atmos is just a mechanical clock with a different kind of winding mechanism. It's only as accurate as you can make a mechanical clock, and that's generally a lot worse than a quartz clock. ...

    I don't teach mathematics. I'm just a retired engineer. When I retired, I contacted all the high schools in my area (don't remember exactly how many, maybe four). I volunteered to tutor students...

    I've always exchanged my tanks. I always ask for good looking tanks just because I don't like working with grungy looking tools. Sometimes I get nice looking tanks, sometimes not.

    This is really off-topic.

    Many years ago, the son of some friends of ours was graduating from high school and heading to Georgia Tech to study engineering. I wrote a paper on some basic...

    I assume speed control. If that "converter" is a VFD it will use a certain amount of power which would add to your electric costs. Probably not enough that you would notice on your electric bill.

    Just for interest, I tried one of the TiteMark knurled knobs on the Taylor Tools gauge - fits perfectly. Even looks identical. You might contact Wayne Drake (of TiteMark) and try to buy one from...

    I didn't because I had some replacement TiteMark blades - I have a number of TiteMark marking gauges used by students so I have to have spare parts.

    It may be possible to sharpen it. If I...

    The blade on the Taylor Tools marking gauge is not very good. You can order a replacement blade from TiteMark - it's a direct replacement and a better blade. It's $10.
