    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...

    Very Super Cool Table Saw Fence...

    Thread Starter: Derek Arita

    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...

    Help me decide on some new water stones

    Thread Starter: Dennis Hawkins

    Greetings all I'm in the market for my first set of water stones and I have it narrowed down to two choices. (1) Shapton Pro Orange 1000 and Pro Melon 8000 or (2) The Sigma Power ceramic set 1000 + 6000 . I'm going to also buy the iWood #300 to keep them flat. I'm a hobby woodworker...
