    Do you have really good eyesight?
    I once did, and now when I'm working on edges, searching for perfection, I have started keeping an inexpensive photographer's (or jeweler's) loupe with my stones...

    Okay fine, I'm not saying this particular lens has good bokeh or good anything else. I'm just saying for certain photographers there is an attraction to certain lenses due to the unique look they...
  5. Are some table saw blades "dustier" than others?

    I'm in the middle of a job that requires cutting thin 1/8" strips, lots of them. Like hundreds. I need a clean finish off the saw, no time for other clean up. So I was using a Forrest WWII thin kerf...

    Milestone might be a stretch, but this lens would be a big step if it makes it to market.

    But you'd have to be a professional photographer or at least a very advanced amateur to fully use and...

    In Ashley's defense, I think she's just a modest person from a modest non-entitled background, and she was reflecting on the price she paid for her particular term of service, not what price she...

    OP here, many interesting perspectives in this thread. I've also informally polled veteran acquaintances, friends and others in passing. It seems that veteran reactions to being thanked can be as...

    I don't think anyone is saying the companies that manufacture chairs are incompetent. What Bob Flexner (certainly not incompetent) is saying in the article I linked is that manufacturers are working...

    Jim,

    Looking at the S&P 500, the bottom was March 9, 2009. From that point forward we have been in a bull market in the US based on moving averages and the mathematical definition of a bull market. For...
