    I moved to Kentucky but am married to a woman who loves UK. I like Kentucky as a place quite a bit, so for whatever reason guess they are my team this year, reluctantly. What about you folks?

    Let's talk pressure washers

    Thread Starter: Mike Wilkins

    In the past I have owned 2 pressure washers, one from each of the big box orange or blue stores. Both with Honda engines. Both were a large dissapointment; one motor died after less than a year, and one with poor plumbing components. I am not looking for a professional tow-behind-my-truck...

    Matsui Precision 2 blade Japanese marking gauge

    I have not used the gauge to mark mortises since the blade bevel would face the wrong direction for one of the lines. I tend to mark mortises in pencil

    Murphy Bed Hardware

    We built several of these at my old shop. The Create-A-Bed hardware works great. As I recall, we made changes after the first couple to make them better.
