    A twist bit will sail right through, and even a paddle bit. For a forstner I'd probably try to clear a path although that will be a lot like pushing a rope. The insulation tears really easily, so...

    Hah, Mark, I have multiple incompetencies! I also have clamp envy looking at your glueup, especially those bessey deep clamps; those would come in handy. I can believe you worked up a sweat getting...

    Dennis, all I can say is ouch! One tip: a paste of adolf's meat tenderizer and a little water applied to stings and held in place for a bit with a bandage (or whatever) works wonders for relieving...

    I have an older dewalt cordless 6 1/2, blade left. There is a simple solution to the trimming 1/4 off a 2x4 issue. Turn the 2x4 around so the waste is to the left. Now the saw body is fully...

    Having just gone through this learning curve, my advice is that getting the stain even and not streaky will be the tricky part. I wasn't using stain, but garnet shellac, and getting a nice even...

    Haven't used that particular flex hose, but every brand I've used, whether 4 or 6, will not slip over S&D pipe. I make adapters by cutting a 4 or 5" long piece of pipe and cutting enough of a slice...
