    For years I had only four handscrew clamps and used them rarely. I use two of them to hold my router table fence in place against the table. There's nothing especially advantageous about using...

    Making everything random was the quickest thing to program. The next valve to be opened, the time it's open, and the time between them are all chosen at random. It's controlled by an Arduino Pro...

    Last week was one filled with obstacles that made it tough even to meet my day job obligations, much less enjoy much time in the workshop. I did manage to complete a project that, while quite crude...

    I use my quick-grips often, mostly to hold something to the workbench/work table temporarily, and I use my K-bodies for most assembly tasks. I'm growing a collection of handscrew clamps, however, to...

    I built one back when TVs were bulkier, component stereo setups were still popular, and media PCs were a relatively obscure, nerdy idea (and PCs couldn't be had in compact forms like they are today)....

    Thanks for the ideas, guys. Not only do the wheels in the middle roll easily, but the swiveling wheels on each end are mounted to give just a little clearance from the floor. So Iíve got to stop it...

    Father's Day at our house was a good one. The family had a cookout with my father-in-law.

    It's been a lot of puttering in the workshop the last few weeks rather than working in earnest on a real...

    I don't have personal experience with either of those planers; I have a Delta 13" four-poster. Based on what I have absorbed from the OWWM.org Web site, I'd lean toward the Powermatic, provided they...

    During the past week, I more or less finished up the repair of my father-in-law's French door. I'll put another coat of paint on it before I put a bow on it.

    The college student was home for the...

    Rusting. When the tank wall is sufficiently corroded, pinhole leaks develop, or in rarer instances, the tank fails in more spectacular ways.

    I got the new applied muntins painted and installed on my father-in-law's French door, and now I'm in the process of filling and sanding other parts of the door that suffered damage from his dog. ...

    A couple of weeks ago, I began to make some new moulding to be applied as the faux muntins on a bifold French door belonging to my father-in-law. His dog had done a real number on one side of the...

    When I switched my shop vacuum from a Ridgid to a Shop-Vac brand, it seemed the challenge of matching hoses to dust ports became much more of a pain. I too picked up a "universal" adapter set, from...

    I'm in the work from home club too, fortunately and gratefully, even if I'm chomping at the bit to be able to get back to some normalcy sooner or later. Okay, sooner.

    Wired up and tested a...

    Laying out is not a difficult task with a bevel gauge, square, and a sharp pencil or (better yet) marking knife.

    There are lots of ways to cut angled tenons. One is a commercially available jig...

    I am still fortunate and grateful to have a job I can perform from home each day. Too many millions of people are not so lucky during this time. I'm also fortunate and grateful to be able to look...

    That's what I did, or at least aimed the exhaust toward the door, when I first had a planer and no DC.

    I suppose if I had a set of commercially made runners on hand, I'd be inclined to use them, because I suspect the adjustability is hard to beat. I certainly appreciate that feature of my miter gauge...

    The 7518 has a 2-prong power cord--it isn't grounded. Even using a pigtail or brush to improve the existing metal-to-metal contact between motor and base won't change much.

    That's how I remember the conversation at the time the recall was announced. And if there were a genuine hazard, the replacement base doesn't solve it:
