    In that rental house I mentioned, there is one screw drive, and one belt drive side by side. There is not enough difference in noise between the two to matter. The door itself makes more noise than...

    A no.8 works good on big pieces. It will almost find flat on it's on. I use one to take a little twist out of something that I don't have enough meat left to deal with on a jointer(machine). This...

    I have some stones that are supposed to be soaked, some that ask for a few minutes before use, and some that ask for a spritz. I use them all the same way, under a little stream of running water...

    The water out of my little California Air aluminum tank runs clear.

    I had said earlier that there are a bunch of Tesla's around the lake. The talk of Corvettes reminded me that there are also a bunch of the new model Corvettes on the road around here. All driven by...

    I don't really have any idea what sort of partial turns I use.

    These are just made by General. I've had them for over 40 years. They get left out all the time. The legs have punched many such marks, but are still sharp enough to hurt you if you aren't...

    I'll post a finished picture, but it will be a while. All the balusters aren't here yet. I just did that marking, and drilled all the holes yesterday. It will have to get squeezed in between...

    When each section is a little different, common on old houses, I step off each section. I think it looks better if there is a 1/16th difference in the openings on different sections than ending up...

    I drilled all those holes this morning, and don't think I was off much more than that on any of them. I had ordered a couple of different brands of 3/4" Forstner bits to try. Only one had come, an...

    Brian, I also have a Brakesmart. When I looked for a link this morning, it looks like both Brakesmart and Maxbrake (a later variation by Brakesmart) are no longer on the market, but are still...

  16. Video: Equally spacing balusters with dividers

    My BIL shot me doing this today. No editing, and first take. I make no claim to be good at explaining things. I can answer questions though.

    This is a foolproof way to make sure every open...

    We have the Dexter actuator on a horse trailer, and it's been troublefree. I do keep that trailer under a shed, and never put anything on the road when there is salt added.

    I was going to...

    Don't worry Fritz, it's not as hard as it sounds, and doesn't take long at all once you find the right spot, to be able to put another one there. I never measure turns, but I don't think I'm at a...

    Here's the conductive grease I use for such things. It has carbon in it, and will easily get all over everything if you get it on a finger. I already had it for working on old tractors. It's not...

    One of ours in the rental house is also an old Craftsman. I started looking at replacement parts, and pretty quickly decided the better way to go would be to just replace it. Fortunately, the...
