    My Scientist friends belong to a group that was hosting a conference. They moved the date up a couple of weeks for fear of the virus. They moved it up from the third week in January, to the first...

    If you have an old Phillips, and old straight blade screwdrivers, hold the phillips in the hole, and use the straight bladed one in the gears, and lever off the philips. I said "old" screwdrivers,...

    I've been looking for one, sort of, for decades now, and never came across one that I really wanted. In what timber framing I've done so far, I've gotten used to using a full sized rabbet plane to...

    I took back the last couple of Arrow guns that I bought. I have a very old Craftsman, that is still completely reliable, but even with any kind of lubrication, it's still a Beast to squeeze the...

    We have a couple of industrial sewing machines, for canvas, and sail work. They come in handy for other stuff too.

    Some might not know that, with that machine, you can sew with the hand crank if there is no electricity.

    It'll probably polish the inside of it, nice, and pretty. It doesn't accumulate in the trap, although it might in that jar trap, but not in a regular P-trap.

    I remember when they came out with those. The first ones looked a bit different than that one. My BIL, who is a cruiser, has one of the first ones in his boat.

    My sharpening sink empties onto a pile of sawdust outside the house (whichever/whenever) we're working on. It doesn't even have a trap, because there are no sewer gases involved. I have used the...

    I don't soak the Sigma's, but do use them under running water. There is no time spent getting ready, other than putting whichever one I use on the stone holder, which is not tightened for any, turn...

    A lot of the PPE I see them using, on TV, looks like wishful thinking to me.

    Some of mine are Sigma Power, and some are Select II's, but I forget which is which. They're both really fast. All of mine, except for the 10k, that I bought used, came from Stuart at Tools from...

    I can tell you that there is a noticeable difference between the 13k, and any 8k. The 13 cuts faster than it seems like it ought to. I do have a 10k, that cuts down on the total number of strokes...

    Some Hollow and Round molding planes would be easier than the multiplane. Not only is there a mouth, which helps with tearout, but you can go in either direction, depending on the grain.

    That...

    Mirka also makes replacement pads for, at least one, of the Bosch ROS's. I have a 6" model, probably the next up from the one John linked. I put the mesh pad, and use the Mirka mesh disks on it. ...

    He foresaw it because he reads Scientific Journals, and believes that Scientists have a better chance of being right, than simple minded politicians.

    I had some partially used boxes of Nitrile gloves that I use in the mechanic shop. I've bought different ones to see which ones I liked, and which fit, so it was a small arm load full. I thought...

    I planned to make some "good" ones out of leftover Corian, as I was sticking those together, but it's never been needed so far. Those have been used some hundreds of times since the morning I had...

    There was a machine shop, that sounds like that one, not far from here when I was a teenager, although only a couple of lathes. My best friend, and I built telescopes when we were teenagers. Those...

    That's a good way to do it.

    I had to come up with a simple solution, that my helpers could use with any jig, since we have several choices of jigs for different purposes. Fast, and...
