    If you don't have any carving tools, you can't beat the price. And with LV to stand behind them, you aren't taking a big risk.

    But if you have a set of carving tools already, these would probably...

    I have a folding ladder that is four sections and folds up pretty tight. It's light weight but does the job I need it for.

    Actually, it folds in half, but each side is an extension.

    If these are like the ones I'm familiar with, you can easily figure out the combination by viewing the wheels in the back of the door. You can also change the combination fairly easily.

    I have a couple of "cash back" cards and they give me a statement credit once a year.

    My pet peeve is the "reward cards" that are sometimes offered for certain things. For example, ATT gave me a...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...
