    Yes, and they are paying associates about $15 an hour to start, at least at the new store near me just over in NJ. They have their place and I've benefited from having access.

    That said,...

    Unless there's an Ethernet port on the machine (or wireless capability) it's unlikely you'll be able to network it directly. While Ethernet to USB devices exist, they require software/drivers on the...

    Similar happened to my hometown years ago when Walmart went in, although it started earlier with WT Grant followed by K-Mart in the same space. "Main Street" started to change substantially (the box...

    RE, the dust collection.... I was taking a much deeper cut than normal (5x deeper because of the need to remove the last remaining bit of old spoilboard and level) with a 1.5" diameter cutter (not my...

    Honestly, underground utilities really should be the goal almost everywhere because they are significantly more resilient to weather events. I don't get it why aerial remains so prevalent in areas...

    UnSpoiling the Spoil Board Afternoon

    It was high time to "go nuclear" on my spoilboard as it was down to about a quarter inch and there have been some Z-height anomalies recently that I attribute to the same, including the factory table...

    Good, supportive footwear is always a plus, but yes, surface matters when standing for long periods of time. My shoes are comfortable and I have most of my shop floor covered with anti-fatigue mats...

    In my case, it was how a family member was treated as an employee. Amazon definitely is no saint, but let's just say that their delivery drivers know our driveway very well. LOL

    Sounds like a good plan. Be sure you have some air inlet to the collection box so that material is "swept" from the box and doesn't accumulate in areas away from where the DC inlet is.

    Let it acclimate and if possible, install on a warmer/more humid day. That permits it to shrink slightly when it's colder/dryer which works well since the groove side can be left to float on the...

    Groove the stock while it's still a blg, long piece of material and then cut/miter for the casework, carefully marking the pieces so you have grain continuity through the corners. Only one may be...

    Grain filler comes after you color and seal the color if it's a dye. If you put it on before you color, you'll lose the ability to highlight the grain as you intend to do. As an alternative, you can...
