    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...

    Jointer question for the transitional neanderthal

    Everything is rusting in my shop!

    Thread Starter: Anthony Scott

    This season has been very wet here in MI. This is the first time since I have moved here that I have actually had rust on my TS top. Now I have noticed it on router bits, etc. Sometimes in the morning I can actually see a little condensation on the TS top. My shop is a detached garage with a...

    How early is too early to work outside?

    Thread Starter: Rich Engelhardt

    I have quite a bit of routing I want to get done. I usually roll my router table out into the driveway to use it. I don't want to cause a neighborhood disturbance with the whine, but, I also don't want to get stuck out in the direct sun in the heat of the day (temperature is forecast to be near...
