    I've got the Toro 52" and it went back to the shop four times before it had 8 hours on it. Most of the problem was with the cheesy deck belt they make but I don't think I will buy another Toro.

    As long as the particle board is in good condition I don't see anything wrong with putting a hardwood floor over the top. It would probably be best to run the flooring perpendicular to the framing in...

    Raccoons are so illusive you just don't how many there are. Then they are nocturnal so you rarely see one in the day time. I live in the country and started feeding a racoon that was hanging around...

    I've never seen it before. A spar urethane can be used the same as a spar varnish. I know the Helmsman spar urethane is junk but I wonder if the Varathane is a good finish or not.

    I think the problem was do to the microfiber cloth allowing air to pass through it more. With a gel stain I think you would have better luck brushing it on thinner and not wiping it off or wipe very...

    That would work fine, just don't put a drop wire close to the saw. You go to turn around a long board and it will get hung on the drop.

    I've never used that product. The internet says that dye you have is water soluble. I've always used Mohawk Ultra Penetrating Stain. It comes already mixed with alcohol.
