    Having a "candy store" like that to go to once in awhile is a very pleasant thing, even if you don't open your wallet. There is a whole lot of really beautiful wood in this world to salivate over!...

    Robert, with 4' spacing on the trusses, the amount of additional framing required to support "normal" batt-type insulation would be substantial, making closed cell spray foam on the bottom of the...

    I used the black water pipe that Tom mentions for the communication cables to my shop building not that long ago. It was easy to join to the regular non-metallic conduit section that was above ground...

    Many vehicles even come with roadside assistance, even when there's an actual spare tire onboard. While I've been a AAA member for "eons" and will always carry it (insurance is through them, too) my...

    This is generally correct. The D4, however, is often used for a variety of through dovetails as well as other kinds of through joinery where two cutters are used. That's where the two router scenario...

    Compact spares often have a recommended 50 mph maximum, but that's very often ignored by drivers. One is not supposed to drive on them for a long period of time, either. The idea is to get you out of...

    It occurs to me that for a full combo, the square rail may just be the best way to have it removable. The round rail fence (SCM/Minimax) could only come off by sliding it all the way to the end after...

    I would think that a ridge vent installed while you are re-roofing might be the easiest way to get an effective solution in place.

    I missed the 44" x 90" part earlier. That is indeed very strange from a dimension standpoint.

    I still like the general idea, but I've now moved to the 4+2 design that I like a whole lot better, especially since it eliminates the need for string trees and feels and looks more "balanced" to me....

    Carl, it's interesting that you have a square fence rail on your machine...my S315WS slider has a round rail and I can (and do) tilt it up when that's appropriate for what I'm trying to do.
