    I've never seen one around here, but a one piece door would solve a lot of the problems.

    I never have waxed a handsaw blade, nor thought about how I hold one. There may be some instances where a saw just won't cut straight, but in all others, it's the sawyer, not the saw. Start right,...

    I'm interested too, but the 1.3 cuts just fine for me.

    I'll chip in 50 bucks for my share of the blade for anyone that wants to do a quality test of the two blades cutting the same wood, on the...

    Mine that I bought new in 1974, and still use, has nothing but the bare metal for the saw back to ride on. It's done a Lot of work, and no wear to have an effect yet.

    A fair number of people rent houses here on the lake for the off season. Mostly younger people who work from home. Not many full timers though. They're too scared of the dark country roads at night.

    Most of the time, I would try to be away when any Inspector came. They always want to stay, and talk about other stuff, and waste my time.

    I've used one, very similar, for ages. I found that you don't need to clamp the stone in it. My stones are different sizes, and I just leave it set so the largest one will go in it.

    I have plenty of leftover wire, but probably none without the neutral. Being close to a service panel, such a circuit wouldn't take much wire anyway. It allows other possibilities too, such as...

    Should work fine. I sharpen such small cutters on the sides of the stones, so as not to put wear on a small part of the face. Just might save an otherwise extra flattening. I just sit the stones...

    The Dewalt is better than most probably expect, and leaves square inside corners. It comes with a chart that tells what combination of parts leaves what width groove.
