    Not the OP, but I've used a lot of that strapping to support vent ducts in attics (like bath fan ducts). It's plastic webbing, similar to what you used to see in lawn chairs. When I use it I just...

    Nice, elegant piece. A few thoughts:

    What about slightly extending the top bead of the drawers to provide a fingerhold? Or maybe just a swell in the center of the top bead.

    Beveling them at complementary angles would work well as you wouldn't have a direct path for noise or whatever. Yes you would have to open one door first, but that's not an issue for a DC.

    Can't hurt to use plumbers grease on the o-ring and threads. I'd replace the o-ring with a new one since they can get compressed and then not seal well when disturbed.

    Jim, yep if they're that brittle you don't have much choice but to replace. Hopefully they will stay watertight until you can get them done.

    For ten years or more I used to wear Merrel hiking boots and loved the way they fit. But then they changed them and like GŁnter's experience, they started wearing out after a year of light use. ...

    You have to be selective even with Redwing these days....some of their newer designs do not have replaceable soles, and you see a lot more reviews complaining about shorter than expected life. But at...

    Triton has a product that does two dowel holes at once that is generally similar in appearance and application, but from the reviews it doesn't seem to be very well designed or built. Curious if...

    Zach, Of course a faulty sensor is always possible. On small motors they are pretty crude devices and often have fairly wide tolerance. It's possible yours was just a bit too sensitive. Or there...

    Well, yes, for a little while anyway. If the motor is being operated within its ratings, it should never trip the thermal overload. Not just the load on the motor, but supply voltage, ambient...

    Jim, I feel your pain with the roof. My barn roof looks pretty much like your picture, and one section of the house roof is headed that way. Clearing the shading trees isn't gonna happen though. ...

    I recommend the 20V XR Brushless version. It drills very well, and drives very well with adjustable clutch. It has a hammer function that works quite well. If I were drilling masonry all day I'd...

    If you have a drill with a universal motor (AC/DC) (many corded drills do) then a sewing machine pedal control will probably work. There's a chance the drill may require more current than the pedal...

    I use the powertec 2 1/2 hose to connect to my stationary sanders. It's fairly light and flexible, but not to the point where it collapses under suction. The tradeoff with the lighter hoses is they...

    I'd avoid water based finishes because they tend to swell MDF and make it rough, so a couple of coats of shellac followed by paste wax would be my suggestion. Oil based poly would be fine too, but...
