    I agree you should go as big as you can. I too have never heard anyone say "I wish my shop was a little smaller." One thing to consider is climate control. I have a bunch of handplanes, some...

    I agree with the consensus it is almost definitely asbestos. Your options are to remediate or encapsulate. I suggest a hybrid approach from the pic in post one.

    Thank you for this. The anode on my old water heater is the 17/16s to 27mm hex head, with 3/4NPT male threads below the hex. My boiler guy recognized the 3/4 NPT from a dozen feet away.
