    If you do have to make a wooden bracket to mount a new magnetic starter, I'd consider a hinged board in front of the starter with a hole above a dowel or small square of wood. The hole is over the...

    Other printer manufacturers have jumped on board the 'supersized ink tank' train. Canon & Brother that I know of.

    I noticed "spray latex with HVLP". You might want to experiment with that though I guess it depends on your definition of "latex". Latex to me means house paint which requires a fair bit of thinning ...

    I did similar but built a frame out of cleaned up 2 X 4s with 1/2" ply panels. Door on the front with one drawer inside. It seems silly to me to have 'benchtop' machines on a stand without maximum...

    I have an Earlex 5000 2 wheel turbine. It will spray "latex" wall paint if it's thinned a little plus floetrol. I sprayed it because the application was not critical and I had the paint. If I wanted...

    My concern with the 'mega tank' inkjets is the print heads. I've had a couple inkjets in the distant past where the print heads clogged due to lack of use and I could not get them fully cleared. Are...

    Agree with the others, Grizzly needs to step up. I have a Jet JJP-12, the infeed is serrated, the outfeed is a hard rubber sleeve on a steel shaft. The only marks I get are from the infeed roller if...

    i think your conclusion is correct. Very few things are truly free, there's always a cost. That cost may not have a $ sign in front of it, the cost may be in privacy if you value that. I guess a lot...

    Which linux distro? Ubuntu & Mint should boot fine in UEFI mode, unless the manufacturer's UEFI implementation is nonstandard - HP is notorious here. I haven't tried booting from a DVD in years, USB...

    I guess that could be a factor if using a floor sweep but I use a dust pan for bigger chunks. I don't use the dust collector where larger pieces are involved, mostly jointer/planer, table saw and...

    If you don't need a base to tilt, it's a good saw. It'll also take universal blades in addition to the hook style blades.

    I imagine a few things go into the "payday and quittin' time" mentality. One is workers feeling like a replaceable cog in a machine rather than a valuable individual. If Those That Matter (who I...

    Glenn you might have a consideration that most of us don't have -- fire resistance. I'd think metal would win there. Maybe talk to an insurance person if you haven't already?

    An alternative to link belts (kinda $$) are AX or 'cogged' belts. Regular V belts will take a set if the machines they are on are not used for extended periods of time. After sitting the belts may...

    I think a test piece is good policy for most glues and finishes. I did have a seam bottom leak on a can of Bullseye Shellac but it was a pretty easy cleanup with DNA.

    I was thinking chisel handles, that sort of thing. The largest are just under 3", smaller maybe 1 1/2". They are pretty heavy - they're also freshly cut so wet - shipping larger pieces would get...

    You are far from alone there, and I imagine that's part of Sears and other B & M retailers problem. We have 2 large malls within 20 miles, I can't recall the last time I was in either.

    Lilac for tools handles?

    I'm not a hand tool guy but seem to remember reading someplace that lilac is good for tools handles. We just cut a lilac down and I saved some pieces. Diameters around 2 3/4" and down. If lilac is...

    That would likely get my vote though it's not very portable if that's a requirement. SSDs are great but they have one undesirable trait as I understand it -- they don't give any warning when they're...
