    Texting while driving?

    Thread Starter: Phil Thien

    I know there are laws against, but I see more texting while driving than ever before. It seems like if I am next to another car on a two-lane road, that there is about a one in ten chance that the other driving is texting. Under thirty-YO people, mostly. It has altered the way I drive. I...

    Sharpness Epiphanies

    Thread Starter: Adam Stevens2

    Was wondering whether others in this group had the same or similar epiphany I had today regarding sharpness in their tools? I've probably been bumbling along for a year or so thinking my blades were pretty sharp, but after today I've seen the error in my thinking. I got myself a set of new Narex...

    Official 2015 MLB Thread

    Thread Starter: Kent A Bathurst

    Verlander is on the DL. Nathan is also. Porcello with the BoSox. Both Fister and Scherzer throwing for the Senators. That is the closer and 4 starters from 2 years ago; closer and 2 Cy Young starters from last year. What's that mean? Detroit is 8-1 - best record in MLB. Only one run off...

    Woodturning Deaths?

    Thread Starter: Russell Neyman

    Somehow, a flurry of dialogue over "the inherent possibility of serious injury" in Woodturning.

    Cordless Drill/Drivers...what's hot?

    Thread Starter: John Coloccia

    Time for the weekly cordless drill and impact driver thread. What's hot these days? I'm generally happy with my Makita (BDF452 and matching impact driver), but one of the batteries is completely dead, and I can't imagine spending $70 each on new batteries....seems crazy when the entire kit was...

    Sjoberg or build my own work bench

    Thread Starter: Peter Choi

    Does anyone have any experience with a sjoberg work bench? I was planning to build one but without any jointers/planers nor a current work bench it's a bit hard to build. I was gonna buy a couple work and decker workmates and use those to plane down wood with a hand plane and glue them up. It would...
