    Living "Off the Grid"

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a friend who believes he lives "off the grid" though he does have electricity. He lacks a phone and water. Today is tax day and he hasn't filed in nearly a decade.

    Very Super Cool Table Saw Fence...

    Thread Starter: Derek Arita

    scrub plane recommendation?

    Thread Starter: Mike Allen1010

    I cut, surface and dimension all my stock by hand and occasionally use rough sawn lumber. I've read a number of posts here in the Cave and other places from people who highly recommend using a scrub plane to quickly level uneven boards and glued up panel's. I would appreciate any advice or...
