    Jim, yep if they're that brittle you don't have much choice but to replace. Hopefully they will stay watertight until you can get them done.

    For ten years or more I used to wear Merrel hiking boots and loved the way they fit. But then they changed them and like GŁnter's experience, they started wearing out after a year of light use. ...

    You have to be selective even with Redwing these days....some of their newer designs do not have replaceable soles, and you see a lot more reviews complaining about shorter than expected life. But at...

    Triton has a product that does two dowel holes at once that is generally similar in appearance and application, but from the reviews it doesn't seem to be very well designed or built. Curious if...

    Zach, Of course a faulty sensor is always possible. On small motors they are pretty crude devices and often have fairly wide tolerance. It's possible yours was just a bit too sensitive. Or there...

    Well, yes, for a little while anyway. If the motor is being operated within its ratings, it should never trip the thermal overload. Not just the load on the motor, but supply voltage, ambient...

    Jim, I feel your pain with the roof. My barn roof looks pretty much like your picture, and one section of the house roof is headed that way. Clearing the shading trees isn't gonna happen though. ...

    I recommend the 20V XR Brushless version. It drills very well, and drives very well with adjustable clutch. It has a hammer function that works quite well. If I were drilling masonry all day I'd...

    I have the XL and the small mortise kit from Seneca. I do mostly power tool woodworking, but have and use hand tools when they are the best tool for the job. I went through many of the...

    If you have a drill with a universal motor (AC/DC) (many corded drills do) then a sewing machine pedal control will probably work. There's a chance the drill may require more current than the pedal...

    Absolutely gorgeous! I'm certain I could not afford a bottle of wine that would be worthy of such a box.

    I use the powertec 2 1/2 hose to connect to my stationary sanders. It's fairly light and flexible, but not to the point where it collapses under suction. The tradeoff with the lighter hoses is they...

    I'd avoid water based finishes because they tend to swell MDF and make it rough, so a couple of coats of shellac followed by paste wax would be my suggestion. Oil based poly would be fine too, but...

    Might want to check with Wood Werks supply (columbus). And check with local lumberyards; at least one near me has pickup/dropoff service with a local sharpening firm.

    Measure the pilot hole with a drill bit. keys with pilots down to 1/8 are pretty common. If it's smaller than that you are in for a search. Of course the tooth pitch needs to match up too.

    The most important thing to do to minimize warping is to laminate both surfaces; if you just laminate the top surface it will warp for sure. Doesn't have to be the exact same laminate on the bottom,...

    Out of all the repairs I've made to furniture over the years, I would say repairing problems with drawers is at or near the top in terms of number of repairs. They stick, the runners come loose or...

    The easiest would be to use a short piece of 6" flex to make the slight bend; a few inches will add little restriction and will provide some vibration isolation also. If you use the type with smooth...

    I use the EDPM seals from Conservation Technologies. Probably overkill for a shed, but since they have little "wings" they are likely more effective at stopping noise transmission through the gap. ...
