    Living "Off the Grid"

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a friend who believes he lives "off the grid" though he does have electricity. He lacks a phone and water. Today is tax day and he hasn't filed in nearly a decade. Of course, he doesn't earn enough to file. Lives on a small "farm" where he piddles around and doesn't get much accomplished. In...

    Chinese Hand Tool Woodworking

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    I came across these on another forum, or at least a link to one or two of them. Given the discussions in other threads, I have a serious preference for watching professionals do woodworking vs. the kinds of things that we've been talking about lately. Most of the stuff aimed at beginners gives no...

    Prayers needed for my grand-daughter...

    Thread Starter: Harold Burrell

    We just got word yesterday that my 10 yr. old grand-daughter (Catriona) has a problem... She has been having some pretty bad headaches lately. The thought was that they were migraines. The doctor, however, wanted to do an MRI "just to be sure". Good thing. What they found was a cyst on her...

    Digital versus hard copy

    Thread Starter: Moses Yoder

    I kind of prefer the digital world. Okay, for some books that would be sacrilege, like Krenov or Nakashima, but most everything I do nowadays is on my lap top. I have a good but relatively cheap HP laptop with 4 gig memory 750 gig HDD with a 2.4 Ghz Core I3 processor, Windows 8.1. All of my music...

    Worst purchase ever?

    Thread Starter: Moses Yoder

    We looked at more of dad's stuff today that my mom is sorting and getting ready for sale. I went through his fishing gear recently and found a thermometer that would tell the water temp at different depths with a price tag of $50 on it. Today we just sat and visited with my mom and sister and I was...

    Question about door jambs...

    Thread Starter: mreza Salav

    Soon (hopefully!) the drywalls will be put up in our new house and I can move to install the 31 interior doors I built (that are stored in my shop since). http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?214011-3rd-%28and-Final%29-batch-of-interior-doors&highlight= I will be building the jambs (out...

    using a mallet on a boxwood handle?

    Tony, LOL. That idiot visits my shop from time to time too.

    Tell Me about Boats

    I fall into the camp of being a boat person. Great times when my dad first bought a canoe. We lived walking distance from a lake and we would fly fish

    Epilog problem

    The first thing I'd check is the cleanliness of the tracks and the condition of the bearings. Be sure mirrors and lens are secure.

    Epilog problem


    I have a problem with vector cutting. The line are not straight. X-motor is new. Laser is 9 years old so maybe I need to change something.

    Living "Off the Grid"

    Sounds like a fairly typical system Ole, very similar to what I run but perhaps a bit more sophisticated on my end. I have 1400watts of PV, a small wind
