    You got something against black? :^) It is what it is.

    My preference is for teak, for this application. This is what God intended this wood to be used for. A million sailors can’t be wrong. BTDT.

    I have the Rotex 150 and 90, and also the ETS EC 150/3, and I wouldn’t consider using either Rotex for finish work. The Rotex machines are for when you want to “show aggression”. Bring out the gimp!...

    THis appears to be aimed squarely at Blue State retirees who were initially shafted by the removal of the SALT exemptions. But it apparently goes much further than that. Who knew.

    The unit we have is the 130. We've had it for a long time, and it stays out on the counter. My wife uses it regularly, and likes it (once I showed her how to use it.) It saves the wear on my Tormek....

    The Chef’s Choice is acceptable, and what I would consider the “benchmark” for producing a decent consumer-grade sharpness in a knife. Provided you use it regularly, not letting the knife go to seed....

    He decided that that was better than being a very important figure in the USSR under Beria. ;^) Wise choice. But beyond that, it was a matter of expediency in the service of his long-term goals, he...

    That is true. For a counterpoint, pick up a copy of Kate Brown's book "Plutopia", largely the story of the Hanford nuclear site and the poisoning of the Columbia River. But that was wartime, and...

    I will complain too. My computer died, and my trusted repair shop was shuttered. So eventually I just had to buy another one. There’s isolation, and then there’s isolation.

    Any son of mine who did that would not only get thrown out of the car then and there, he would be banned from the ranch. You have my deepest sympathies.
