    Vexing Electrical Problem

    Thread Starter: Dennis McDonaugh

    Sorry for the long story, but this has been going on a few days. The circuit breaker for our second bedroom tripped a few days ago. It's used as an office and at the time the overhead light and ceiling fan were on as well as an LED TV and a cable box. I reset the breaker and it immediately...

    Buying a house is so frustrating!

    Thread Starter: Brian Elfert

    I'm trying to buy a house, but any decent inexpensive houses are selling like hotcakes. I was supposed to go look at a house with a 40x80 outbuilding tomorrow, but it sold already. (Priced at $199,000 and the building alone is probably $100,000 to replace.) There are quite literally zero houses...

    Is the table saw (non sawstop) the most dangerous tool in the shop?

    Thread Starter: Michael Yadfar

    I've been thinking to myself about what the safest and most dangerous tools are in the shop. Someone told me bandsaw was the most dangerous once, but I think that may be the safest saw in the shop. It's hard to determine the safest because all power tools are dangerous, but I think the most...

    How much do you tip your oil change guy?

    Thread Starter: Pat Barry

My daughter took her car in yesterday for an oil change and the service guy actually asked her for a...

    How big is your house

    Thread Starter: Jerome Stanek

    I have been following the house thread and was wondering how the size of the houses are around the country. I see some have a house over 2000 sq. ft and they say that is to small for a family of 3 and others have a 1500 sq ft house and a family on 5. I have a 1600 sq ft house and only 1 an 1/2...

    Where are You Vacationing this Year?

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    We are in the midst of planning a vacation to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for a couple of weeks. A friend lets us stay four days on his lakefront house on Torch Lake and from there we progress up to the Upper Peninsula. This year includes a trip to Copper Harbor and Isle Royale. Nothing like...

    What to use for mitre bar stock? (Votes: 74)

    1. Anything other than $40 worth of Incra mitre bars is not worthy of your crosscut sled. (Votes: 6)

    2. Not worth $40, but you really should take the time to drill/tap steel bars for your sled. (Votes: 13)

    3. Run what you brung, square the sled to the blade, shoot some brads, countersink, move on. (Votes: 41)

    4. You are over-thinking this in a big way. Nothing to see here, move along. (Votes: 11)

    5. Carrots and peas. (Votes: 3)

    How big is your house

    We bought a small very affordable house in the country with a half acre lot and a nice shop with garage doors about 15 years ago. The house is 1200 square

    This conversation reminds me of surfing a british woodworking board, they're always up in arms when dado blades are mentioned and how unsafe they are,

    How big is your house

    LOL!
    5 years ago I'd have agreed 100%.
    Any more those 5 steps up to our second floor bathroom seem like I'm climbing Mt. Hood! .
