    Let's see your Neander Shop!

    Thread Starter: Hasin Haroon

    I love seeing other woodworking shops, neander or power, for the inspiration that they can bring to my own reorganisations of my shop. So post some images of your shop (neander or non-neander, despite the title). I'll start with my basement workshop, which my wife very kindly allows me to have....

    Lie-Nielsen Issues

    Thread Starter: Steven Harrison

    Light Bulb Retribution

    Thread Starter: BOB OLINGER

    Does anyone have any thoughts on light bulbs that burn out way in advance of their projected life expectancy? For example, a 3-way conventional bulb in the lamp by my recliner (used for reading) just burnt out. I know it didn't last as long as the life expectancy. We've had the same thing happen...
