    It's true that for general cutting, particularly with a full kerf blade, there's not a whole lot of benefit to the stiffener. There is some benefit when running thin kerf blades to add some...

    Your "easiest" sale will be a full lot of everything for a fixed price, "take it all and thank you very much", although that might take longer to find the right buyer. The most aggravating sale will...

    I'm not sure I'd entertain going to the trouble to use added inert gasses to help preserve waterborne paints, especially given just how accurate color matching is these days. Merely stepping down to...
