    I think that estimate is waaaay too low. Most gift cards have a redemption rate of 80% or higher (mostly higher). Of course, it depends on what the gift card is for.

    But even if someone didn't...

    I grew up on a poultry farm and we never had problems with possums - and there were possums in the woods near us. Most of our problems were with feral dogs and cats. Occasionally snakes but that...

    When a company gives you a "gift card" when you purchase some other product, in most cases this is not a "gift card" from a legal point of view - it's a promotional card, essentially the same as a...

    Yeah, we have possums here. They're pretty harmless - they're nature's garbage men. Every now and then the dog will catch one (especially little ones) but I always collect and release. The dog...

    The company has to carry the amount of outstanding gift cards as a liability on their accounting (annual report). I suppose there's a way of writing the liability off after enough time has passed. ...

    A feral cat got in to our baby chicks one time. He just killed each one and stacked them in a pile. I discovered him after he had killed maybe 20 chicks. I quickly left and got the .22 and went...

    If I understand your jig, the blade is extended and you just push the work into the "V" in front of the biscuit jointer. How do you get the blade to stay out? I can see attaching the front part of...

    Chickens can be tough. Look up how you caponize a male chicken - the testes are inside the rib cage. We used to do that in the chickenyard and just put vaseline on the wound. And it's both sides. ...

    I have the one from Rockler, also, and it works okay for me. I had to learn how to hold it to get a good impression. It's easy to have one area dark and another area light.

    I just bought too many. I really need to sell some of them. I bought multiples of some sizes thinking I'd always have another one to reach for when the first started getting dull. But I don't do...

    I would not suspect a start cap from the way you describe the slowdown. You describe the saw coming up to normal speed but then slowing down when you put a load on it. If that's the situation, the...
