    Narrow hand tool shop

    Thread Starter: Oskar Sedell

    Hi all, looking for advice on using the space in a very small hand tool only shop. I'll be moving in a couple of weeks, and it looks like I'll get my first own shop in a storage room in the cellar. Since I've been working off my kitchen table (in a single room apt) so far this will be a...

    Thread Starter: Bill Jobe

    So.....why has no one suggested that the "Big Bang" (as we struggle to understand why so little antimatter is known to exist within our scope of understanding) has the same MO as the few antimatter particles we have been able to study. When matter and antimatter touch, a bolt of pure energy is...

    Are carbide tools causing us to lose skills in turning?

    Thread Starter: Mikey Green

    I quit turning for a year or two, but just recently starting turning again. Before I took my hiatus, I'd purchased some carbide cutter tools and used them on a very limited basis for specific purposes.
