    Just guessing at the scale but that looks like a short spindle. normally the bearing would just stack above or below the cutter or sanding drum to do what you want.

    Prashun is probably right-- I didn't think about is as I've never had enclosed trash containers in my shop. Everything sits out in open containers with circulating air and plenty of opportunity to...

    I've subsequently ordered from bandsaw blades direct and the product has been excellent. They are not quick, however, so not a great choice if you need something this week. One of the orders I placed...

    This works great, you just need to be sure that the foam layer is thick enough (and consistent enough) so that you don't create a condensing surface inside the wall. Your foam contractor should know...

    I ran most of the wiring in the ceiling using plain romex then dropped the receptacles down using EMT. No bending involved, a significant cost/labor saving, and the wires are protected where they're...

    A friend sent this to me recently, I don't know who wrote it. It appeared on a number of bulletin boards back in 2012, with no reliable attribution (possibly it came from this Studebaker site). I...
