    They must have improved in the decades since I last shaved, I tried electric razors and they were never sharp, even new out of the box. Much prefer my current solution.

    Bubbles!

    I'm started on the road of trying both spray applications and water based finishes. The known unknowns and the unknown unknowns far outweigh anything that might be known.

    I'm working on a ca 1895...

    Mortise and tenon plus gravity. Nothing moves when it's not supposed to, easy to take apart when necessary.

    McMaster Carr has about any size of O-ring you can imagine. Or Grainger if you have an account.

    Can you go overhead and drop new wires down from the second floor or attic?

    Myself, I'd knock a big enough hole in the foundation to get access and then do whatever needs doing. But then I'm ...

    I bought the 9" first, it's so small I've never used it. I don't see an advantage to it over a straight rest. The 14 is very useful for any bowl where a curved rest would be useful. The 9" might be...

    It's not very imaginable why you would want it, but someplace like Certainly Wood can tell you if it can be had. If it needs to be custom cut the price will probably get someone's attention.

    I have basically the same machine only 3 ph. It's been about a year and I still can't believe how well it works! Enjoy! Having that wide a jointer is life altering-- though you will develop some...

    I can't imagine why one would mess with oil for either veneering or vacuum chuck applications. You don't need a high vacuum and oilless pumps work just fine. I've lived with literally hundreds of oil...

    I'm sure it will be great. I mostly finish cherry with Arm R Seal. I just did some cutting boards for some crunchy granola types and did a first coat of pure tung oil then a beeswax/mineral oil...

    Seems like an awful lot of work for a bad outcome achieved slowly. I'm glad they had fun doing it.

    Extraordinarily well written paper, but in a nutshell, why I became a biologist. Even though I got through differential equations in college (and pchem, but that's a different story) that was about...

    I don't know for sure, as I haven't done the experiment. In winter I leave a small gap for summertime expansion, in summer I make them reasonably tight. The wood will certainly move, it may be that...

    How do you get your shop to 30-40% humidity? We get that low (or lower!) for a couple months in mid-winter, but most of the year it's in the 40-60% range, and through the summer 50-70 with the AC on....

    It seems I'd pretty much never find my way anywhere without Google Maps. It occasionally gives a weird routing, close to home that's due to having no cell signal so it doesn't know exactly where it...

    Please don't force dark mode on us. No objections to it existing as a choice, but the fashionistas have too often declared that these days we must read gray type on a dark background. It just doesn't...

    I have both the Robust curved and J and use both regularly, depending on the shape and size of the bowl I'm working on. I must be doing something wrong, I've never hit the back of the rest with my...

    Paint removal by sanding has always seemed a pretty thankless task. I'd use a chemical stripper, then a light finish sander. The orange based stripper actually works decently of you smear it on cover...

    Another outlier, I use Safari mostly, sometimes Chrome. The browsers seem so similar and so capable these days I haven't found any particular reason to choose one over another. I'm old enough that my...

    I've never taken one apart, nor have I heard of such a thing. But then I've never had occasion to get anything particularly sticky up inside the handle. I'd run it through the dishwasher and see...

    Western PA? Just hire some Amish guys to come do it. Mostly they raise them by hand, sometimes with a horse. Fun to watch.

    The lifts are nice, I've used them several times. Weight limits are...

    Thanks to both of you. That gives me two very reasonable sounding starting points, I expect I'll try both and see where it takes me. I was thinking I would order the Qualspray gun Jim recommended a...

    6 months to 40 years (so far). I seldom buy wood for a specific project, instead I buy exceptional wood whenever I find it and restock on my basics of maple, cherry, walnut, and poplar as I start to...

    The one's I've bought at a similar price are wood; I just grabbed a picture, I know nothing about that particular one. Plastic would be a disaster in a wood fired oven.
