    Resawing and thicknessing tend to be the most time and energy consuming parts of hand tool woodworking. You can make an argument that they are foundational, and help develop skills and muscle memory...

    A separate neutral has been required for a range/dryer outlets for something like 25 years. When electric ranges and dryers first became common in the 1950s, they allowed the ground to double as the...

    NEC jurisdiction stops at the outlet. After that, it would be more of UL certification and product safety regulations and insurance/liability issues.

    Prior to WWII, serious cabinetmakers all over the globe also bought #4 Baileys-style planes by the boxcar load. Something apparently worked for them with that combination of size and mass.

    As a prototype/test project, I took a piece off red oak firewood, bandsawed it into a head, morticed a handle in, and started using it. I ended up liking it as is, so I never ended up making an...

    As noted, the problem with smaller pipe is that you loose a lot of that suction to friction in smaller pipes. You only get so much volume of air moved and static pressure from a given sized dust...

    Since I like doing that sort of thing, I had a cool system all planned out for triggering the cyclone when I open up a blast gate, with micro switches on the gates and a 24V relay for the contactor,...

    If I had a couple more beers, I might admit to having clamped a board to the extension table (both sides) to use as a rip fence. As I only have had two tonight, I will deny any association with this...

    Hi, when you say cheap Rockler HLVP, are you referring to the $119 Rockler branded one? I'm hoping so, because if that works for shellac, I would definitely pick one up. After using my new Fuji G...

    7/16 tends to be avoided because you can just get a 1/2 nut on it, but obviously it won't have the proper thread depth and can fail. In one shop that I worked in, we would throw any 7/16 away we...

    Post WWII is used as a convenient break in the Stanley timeline, but the entire lineup didn't magically go bad in August of 1945. Many are good into the 1950s and even 1960/1970s; it depends on the...

    I hone with a 4000 waterstone (King brand maybe?) and then hit the edge on the stroping wheel on the Tormek with that abrasive "toothpaste" they make for it. I haven't found a reason to go finer.
