    Yea, I agree with runout and twisted grain. I've found decent handles at tool stores (and strangely my local ace hardware) recently. Not at a big box in a long time. Also completely agree with being...

    Well, I suppose without opinion there's no point of discussion. We would just all be the same :)

    Yea, used scaffolding is well worth picking up, assuming you can store it or.. buy it, use it.. sell it. Typically cheaper than a good ladder new as well.

    Well, there's also just the random collection of hammers. I probably have about 2 dozen, and 'collecting' wasn't intentional. The last one I bought, I was at a friends house and we needed to fix a...

    You're correct, however it's becoming more common of an issue (I ship USPS pretty regularly). Things ending up in the wrong spot used to happen.. but it was typically pretty quickly corrected. These...

    They're predicting snow for a few miles from my house next week as well (ok, so above 6000') and the 90s the week following. It's weird weather.

    I don't mind framing in the cold at least.

    Bruce, I was shipped a package on the 7th... across town. It's gone to LA, DC, North Carolina, and Phoenix. So far, it's sat in Phoenix (I am outside Tucson, so it's 3-4 hours away) for over a week....

    That can be done with a bandsaw though, and that's a far more flexible tool anyway IMO. :)

    Yep, I use a (and I'll be very pedantic here) powered miter saw for construction.. otherwise it sits unused. I've never seen one that wouldn't leave an uneven shaving on a shooting board.

    Well, perhaps we should end the $200,000+/yr salary they receive and make them go back to work. I'd be ok with that.

    So, for those concerned about high accuracy while breaking down larger stock... are you dimensioning before you break it down? I really don't care about break-down accuracy to anything greater than...

    Even a well made joint can rack, especially with clamp pressure. This is why pinch sticks have been used for.. well, centuries.

    Since most people are measuring their mass at 1G, and weight is a measurement of gravitational force, it's really splitting hairs.

    Besides, it's more or less about not understanding physics ;)

    I also have a hammer problem :D The only fiberglass one I have is an electricians hammer that somehow ended up in my truck cab one day and I couldn't figure out whose it was.

    Many like them, I am not a fan of Estwing. Mostly because I prefer a wood handle, that's true also of my titanium head framer (and I still use my old hart more often than that). For this kind of...

    It depends on what is on it, and potentially how long it's been there. Invisible glass doesn't work well on established water spots. I haven't used talc, because I have Barkeeper's Friend, which just...

    There wasn't a method for replacing the VP until the 25th amendment. So that explains everything prior to 1967.
