    Why Not Convert to Metric?

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a Hammer slider with a metric system installed on the fence. It's actually a much easier way to cut things and even build. Why haven't we simply adopted the metric system in the USA? It would prove much easier to figure fractions for those folks who are fraction challenged.

    Why don't you use ceramic stones?

    Thread Starter: george wilson

    Maybe I got lucky. My flattening of the White stone took about an hour,using a used diamond stone. It was slightly out of flat,and had a fuzzy spot of ceramic that had to go. I have seen pictures of "sawn" looking ceramic stones by Spyderco(my brand),but haven't encountered one personally. I got...

    Freehand curve cut on a tablesaw?

    Thread Starter: Rich Engelhardt

    http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/video/0,,20924478,00.html Tom Silva's using the table saw to freehand cut @ 57 seconds into the video. I'd think this is a good way to be force fed a piece of material - - but - - this is TOH & Tom Silva.....:confused::confused:

    Part Deux - The Gennou BTS

    Thread Starter: Stanley Covington

    I am starting a new thread because I need to add a significant amount of new information to my older gennou thread, but if I just appended the old thread, most people would just blow it off as more chitchat. So here goes. History We all grew up using hammers with handles designed to fit a...

    Building my inventory of logs

    Thread Starter: Todd Burch

    I picked up a couple shorter water oak logs (red oak family) over the weekend. I'm collecting logs, so when I get a mill, I'll be ready. ;) These two logs are ~36" diameter (one 36 @ small end, one at the big end). They are 6.5' - 7' long. Log was too heavy to even move when a full 13.5' long....

    Flat Crown Molding Question

    I wonder if you have windows &/or doors in the wall where you are installing the crown? If so, the slope of the crown molding will be made more obvious

    Workbench update

    Nice work Tim! I'd skip the finish, just use it. The lumber may take some time to settle down and so you may end up reflattening the top a time or two.

    Is the Klausz-Frid-Scand Bench Dead?

    So did I LOL!! Mostly did it for the challenge. I actually think a wagon vise is more practical.

    Don't know how many times I walked away

    Trotec vs Universal

    I would recommend you look at all of the other (brand) vs (brand) threads and come up with your own conclusion.

    Finish for Cherry

    I've heard of using wood glue diluted with water.

    Thoughts about that?

    I'll definitely be taking my time and using test boards
