    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...

    Our 'Brave New World' with Medical Profiling

    Thread Starter: Jim Koepke

    This is not my opinion, it is just sharing an article. The world we knew from five or six decades ago is changing faster than we ever knew. Actuaries predict your life span. Banks track your spending habits. Now, your employer can tell whether you’ll have diabetes a year from now. And the...

    Any experience with new Laguna 14/12 bandsaw?

    Thread Starter: Lester Sak

    In the market for my first bandsaw and have been doing a lot of research. This is for a small garage shop (9’x18’) and no access to a 220 line. So, I’m looking for the best quality 14” saw that will run on 110v. This will be for general use – curves, ripping thick stock and re-sawing so I...

    Grizzly vs ClearVue cyclones

    Thread Starter: Mike Suiter

    I'm going to put a cyclone in my new 30x40 shop I'm building and finally retire my HF DC (it just won't die). I've been doing a lot of searching and it pretty much seems that anyone that has a cyclone loves it no matter what brand. I've decided my choice will be between the Grizzly G0441 and the...

    Wood preferences

    Thread Starter: Mike Cozad

    I am/have never been a fan of oak. I have exactly 3 pieces of oak furniture in my house. 1 I built in shop class when I was 11 and didn't know any better. In fact, the shop teacher let me pick white oak for the legs and aprons of the night stand and the drawer front and top are red oak. Other than...

    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)

    Lesson learned on that one her. Don't visit those sites with a CC readily available and your liquid courage freely flowing.

    How much to pay for a woodie jointer, and what to look for?

    I do a lot of flea markets, antique shops throughout the north east. I don't typically look for the woodies, but the ones that have followed me home are

    Shop Sale Continues -- Lots of small items

    Another bump on the Kreg Systainer package. I'd take $150 plus shipping and payment fees. This is overkill for any small home projects I'll be doing
