    Sorry Richard, but those days are behind me by about forty years. I can relate the story that prompted the post though. A long time ago I owned a small company specializing in building high-end cold...

    I used to work with contact molded epoxy parts. Mold release is critical. There are numerous systems, but the old bedrock is wax. Over the course of decades I developed a relationship with a guy who...

    There's a couple of hide glues nobody has mentioned:
    1) Franklin. I actually use it pretty often for one important quality. It seems to have virtually no "grab", which takes a lot of the stress out...

    Tom,
    Your post takes me back from my current dual lift router table to my boat building career forty years ago. In those days we hadn't figured out how to put a router in a table. We just clamped...

    I think you called it right in your original post: You'll likely prefer the Tersa. I have an SCM j/p with a Tersa head. I've used the stock carbon steel knives as delivered, and they're surprisingly...

    The old traditional standby is 50% mineral oil from the drug store mixed with 50% kerosene. Been using it for fifty years. Cheap and effective.

    Why do I have to login each time?

    I've religiously paid my dues. I'm on a Mac with the most current operating system; I never use any other devise. When I login I always check the box that says, "Remember me". That doesn't work...

    I have one. I also have a Stanley #80 and Bob Page’s rendition of Paul Hamler’s scraper insert. I have a multitude of irons for each of them ranging from 3/32” thick O1 down to 1/32” thick...

    Pouring more material over the top won't fix it. It may make it worse: hardened material on top of uncured substrate. Assuming your ratio was correct, the only fix is to elevate the temperature...

    My old 3hp Oneida is outside the shop, and I wouldn't have it any other way. The fine dust just gets blown out with no filter. An added benefit is that the noise is greatly reduced. However, my place...

    Julie,
    WD 40 Specialist is greasy kid stuff. It goes on about like TriFlow. I wipe it all off, but there's still an oily film left, and that seems to work okay here in the desert. In Florida, you'll...

    Julie,
    WD-40 Specialist is greasy kid stuff. Goes on like TriFlow and spreads easily, but I wipe it twice to almost dry. Probably best to leave it pretty slippery wet in Florida for best results....

    I live in Tucson, and we have them here. Aptly named - pretty, and amazingly fast. I don't like snakes, but they're the good guys. Leave him alone, and your mouse problem will gradually end.

    Leave it at elevated temp - inside the house or up to around 100ºF. It will take awhile... maybe quite awhile but it will most likely cure. Eventually. I once glued the second plywood deck skin onto...
