    Thanks for the reply John, particularly the "won't look perfect" comment. I will need to show that to LOML. The area is small, except to LOML.

  9. Source for bearings in Porters Cable 7518 router

    I've had my PC 7518 router for almost 20 years. So I wasn't upset to hear, and feel the signs the bearings needed replacing. The folks over at Reproduction Woodworks do a great job of walking you...

    This is being applied in the middle of summer, on a very warm day after power washing the floor and making sure it is clean and dry. It should adhere really well. If that's the worst problem to worry...

    Epoxy your garage floor...yes or no?

    My neighbors are doing this and I was wondering if this is "a good thing to do"? Anybody with experience with an epoxied floor?
    Thanks for any input!
  12. Replace or repair a Bosch 3107 DVS ROS sander

    I've had my Bosch sander for years. Been a work horse. But today, it stuttered then quit. I use an orbital sander enough that it's needed, no question about that. But when a unit is close to 10-15...
  13. Pony 3/4" bar clamps cost more, are they worth it?

    I have always loved my Pony 3/4" bar clamps. Some I've had in use for over 20 years, with little to no complaints on my part. I came up with an idea to use a pair on something not related to...

    Thanks guys for the straight talk and input. I was looking at the Hitachi 72 tooth carbide tipped blade before going on the forum. It's not too expensive and meets the requirements stated above. I'm...
  15. General Metalworking I cut non ferrous metal rarely, but have a project that may need multiple cuts

    Most often I've used a Hack saw to cut thin aluminum and other similar thin non ferrous metals. However, I've run into a project that might call for cutting a number of fairly thin pieces of...
  16. New version of Porter Cable 4210 dovetail jig. Problem with narrow drawers.

    I had the old version of the PC dovetail jig and the new version for half blind dovetails looked like a better mouse trap. It was offered as a gift from LOML so I said Yes. Come to find out that...

    Wow, lots of good ideas. I like the two nail type. That almost looks idiot proof. That's for me. I don't do enough to justify trying to make or have someone make a holder, unless a task comes up that...

    I've often thought that I might make some effort to make sure the legs were absolutely parallel. That makes sense. When I pull the staples out of the box, some are surely not parallel. I'll give that...

    I thought I knew how to use a hammer

    Does anyone else have trouble hammering in those large metal staples? The ones that are 1" x 1/2". I don't often use them, and usually not for woodworking. But once in a while, they come in handy...

    I sent Roy a PM, and he's right. I used a gasket material that was handy, not the best material. The original material I wanted to use was too thick, couldn't use it. I finished too late at night to...

  23. Oneida DIY Dust Deputy not working as should. Can't figure out why.

    I had an original Oneida Dust Deputy for years. I forget what I did to damage it, but I did. So I decided to get one of the DIY $49.99 new tops and build a bottom out of 3/4 plywood to fit it and I...
