    Good question, and I'd also love to know the answer. Not at all clear how the thing works and whether it works with the DC running. No mention of calibration, so if it's bouncing a laser off the...

    Oil was about $65/barrel last January when your March purchase was likely made, $115 a barrel in June when the product purchased today was made. Price today is $90, so you should see it coming down...

    As Mr. Buffet would be the first to tell you, you haven't lost (or gained) anything until you actually sell the asset.

    I don't know the system, but as long as you have a good flat platform with an adjustable angle relative to the wheel it's pretty straightforward. Set the angle relative to the wheel at 40 and draw...

    There must be a dozen products out there called "Danish oil" that range from varnish to BLO in composition. Which is the one you like?

    My experience with with Mahoney's walnut oil is quite...

    The issue with a band saw is that it is really not optimized for dealing with round or uneven objects without a fair amount of thinking, planning, and sled construction. As often as not every time I...

    Olive oil applied on a daily basis (in the form of salad dressing) will keep the bowl in great shape. Avoid soap, a quick wipe with a damp sponge or rag will do the trick for cleaning.

    I also...

    I almost never use the largest knife both because I seldom get wood that big and pretty much no one needs or wants a bowl that big. The smallest knife makes a small bowl, a size where, for me anyway,...

    5/8" bar (1/2" flute), from Doug Thompson. It's possible that a 3/4" tool would be faster, but I haven't felt the need. In green wood I'm taking off chips that are pushing 4-5 mm thick as it is. I...

    Look at the Garrett Planning Network. They are an association of independent fee-for-service planners with members across the country. While individuals vary across the network they generally share a...

    Although I have a large and pretty powerful band saw I almost never use it on turning blanks, I find it quicker and easier (and perhaps safer) to round them up on the lathe, with the added advantage...

    When I refinished the stairs in our house I just put it on with a 3" brush. Had to work quickly, but it came out fine. It sets very quickly once it's applied-- you need to get it down and move on, no...

    It's very hard to beat Bona Traffic HD as a floor finish. Downside is that is double or triple the price per gallon of the Varathane product, but it will also last at least that much longer. I don't...

    Never had one. I put sensitive loads (like our server) on a UPS that incorporates low level surge suppression then plug it into a standalone surge suppressor. Haven't yet lost anything, either on or...

    A 2-3/4" forstner bit is $34 at Woodcraft. Probably cheaper at Harbor Freight. I'd just buy one and move on. Don't know how old you are, but I've used my cheap big bits multiple times over the last...

    There's a really nice science fair project in there (speaking as a one-time judge of such things)-- number of turns, wire gauge, wire material, winding patterns; compare what the oscilloscope sees...

    It will probably sort of work, but then look even worse as the ongoing spalling reveals white patches in the black sealer.

    My son was talking about doing this, but hasn't yet. I think he bought some sort of recording laser tachometer to count windings. Seemed like it would be pretty easy to screw a pickup carrier to a...

    I haven't, but it sounds like a great idea. I don't want anything with vinyl siding anywhere I need to look at it though, I'd probably cover it with cedar shingles.

    MDO that I've been buying has been pretty much void free; might work if you care only about the edges.

    There's a lot of data about what works and what doesn't work in investing, and a trillion dollar industry based on getting people to do the wrong thing. It irks me.

    Thanks, something to think about in the (I hope) unlikely event I need to swap out my DC.

    I'm a fan of three phase motors and VFDs, just had always thought of a DC as an on/off machine. I've used...
