    I can't avoid being THAT snarky in responding. If you actually have an egg from a peaCOCK, I think that fluorescence is the least interesting attribute. :p Try "peafowl."

    I think the biggest reason is that you may not own the account which paid your taxes. Maybe your parents or your in-laws paid your taxes for you, for whatever reason. So to make sure the YOU get the...

    Clean my shop. SWMBO says that's the only way I can get the CNC I want. Of course, her white glove inspection tops anything I ever endured in the military. So we'll see if I get it clean enough.:p

    They were down for a couple of days but they are up now and should remain so. The contest started Saturday and apparently their programmers don't work on the weekends. I emailed them Sunday about...

    The PowerTwist belt is really NOT the same as the regular v-belt. The sheaves in the Shopsmith speed control (a Reeves drive) depends on the angled sides of the v-belt to move up and down against...
