    Narrow hand tool shop

    Thread Starter: Oskar Sedell

    Hi all, looking for advice on using the space in a very small hand tool only shop. I'll be moving in a couple of weeks, and it looks like I'll get my first own shop in a storage room in the cellar. Since I've been working off my kitchen table (in a single room apt) so far this will be a...

    Pet peeve with forums

    Thread Starter: Bill Graham

    OK, here we go: Why don't people who post a thread asking for advice about a manufacturer's tool of a given model number expect those who reply to either be intimately familiar with the model numbers of every tool produced by every manufacturer or spend time searching for it on Google? If you...

    Replacement for old Craftsman Table Saw

The steps to enter into his...

    Are carbide tools causing us to lose skills in turning?

    Thread Starter: Mikey Green

    I quit turning for a year or two, but just recently starting turning again. Before I took my hiatus, I'd purchased some carbide cutter tools and used them on a very limited basis for specific purposes. In coming back to my hobby and reviewing a lot of you-tube videos of others turning, as well as...

    Here's what has me puzzled

    Thread Starter: Bill Jobe

    So.....why has no one suggested that the "Big Bang" (as we struggle to understand why so little antimatter is known to exist within our scope of understanding) has the same MO as the few antimatter particles we have been able to study. When matter and antimatter touch, a bolt of pure energy is...

    Table saw Sled question

    So how do you get the sled back to the start position? Do you walk around the saw and remove it or just pick it up and lift it over the blade?

    Grass 34 feet tall
