    I use Google Chrome so I'll give instructions for that. I'm sure that other browsers have similar options.

    One problem with older chisels is the rust and pitting on the back. If the pitting is down at the cutting edge, you have to decide whether you're going to:

    I've always differentiated between chisels the same way. A chisel that has a rectangular cross section I call a "firmer". A chisel that is beveled on both sides of the top (in cross section) I've...

    My pet peeve is the web pages that start a video, with a commercial at the beginning, as soon as you go to the page. I just recently found how to stop those from playing.

    I used to turn the sound...

    With veneer on something like Baltic birch you can do some really amazing visual things. There's lots of choices in veneer - just go to a web site like Certainly Wood or B&B Rare Woods.

    All the kitchens of homes I've owned only had one outlet under the sink and the dishwasher and garbage disposal both took their power from that one outlet. I can't even see why they would have a...

    Yeah, installing a dishwasher in a space that's already had a dishwasher is pretty easy. I've never had anyone install one for me - always did it myself and never had a problem. You probably won't...

    That's good news. I hope ello is successful. But they have to make money some way - perhaps by charging an annual fee?

    I do not use Facebook because of the privacy issue.

    Running the motor that slow should not be a problem for the motor. It should not get very hot because it's not loaded very heavily. But I question how well it will work to "clear the air". It's...

    The cast steel chisels are likely to be fairly old, although that could mean early 1900's. If you like the idea of working with tools produced that long ago, I'd buy the cast steel ones. If that...

    I agree with Phil. This is probably a common mistake and it's been litigated and handled before. I would bet there's standard procedures for handling it.

    You had an agreement with the loan...

    This will offer some makers of the cases for the 6+ the opportunity to put reinforcing into the case to prevent bending. It'll help them sell cases.

    Perhaps what this disagreement is about is production furniture as opposed to custom furniture. In my mind, there's no doubt that production furniture HAS to be made with power equipment in order to...

    Amen. I visited with Sam Maloof several times and he was absolutely not a hand tool worker. John's right - if he could have done everything on the bandsaw, he would have.

    Yep, now that I got rid of the Metro interface, I find Windows 8.1 to be a good, stable, fast operating system. I like it better than Windows 7.

    If it didn't have the Metro interface, I think...

    I just went into the shop to check. I have a Mitutoyo head and a Starrett head. Both can be rotated 180 degrees and they are aligned. The Starrett is somewhat old, but probably not more than 25...

    If the piece needs to be square, I've run it through my table saw, just "kissing" the wood with the blade. You can keep adjusting the cut until you get all the wax off. Often the piece of wood was...

    I would treat that as a decorative item and not as a base. You can think of it as molding except that there's a decorative "finger joint" type item at the corners. Make the chest normally. Then...
