    Out here, the treated solid waste is used as fertilizer, but only for crops that are to be fed to animals. While treated solid waste is probably safe as fertilizer for crops for human consumption,...

    I have the full size LV router plane and love it. I had bought the LN small router plane but it had two problems that caused me to sell it.

    It depends on what the highest frequency is in your cable system. A lot of cable systems only go to about 1GHz but unless there's a big price difference, I'd go with the higher frequency in case...

    You can make a dowel plate or buy one. You make it out of steel and drill a hole the size you want. Then you pound your dowels through the holes. LN makes a dowel plate.

    I guess I don't have a favorite chain restaurant but I do have a few I abhor. One is Buca di Beppo which gives copious amounts of terrible food which they call Italian. I think they try to make up...

    I wired my compressor to a motion sensor. If there's no motion in the shop, the compressor won't work. Same could be done with the dust collector. Since the motion sensor is 120V and the...

    I'll add to Rod's comment that the 1725 motor will probably be physically larger than the 3450 motor (for the same HP). But HP and torque wise, I agree with Rod.

    Let's look at the number of possible telephone numbers in the US and Canada (North American Numbering Plan).

    I agree. I had a similar problem that the repair people wanted to charge me $1,000 to fix. And all it was was a plugged up drain hose. Run a wire down the hose or use compressed air to blow it out....

    I had the same experience - drilled right through the crown and filled it with amalgam. Porcelain crowns are metal with a thin coating of porcelain. I don't see any reason it should shatter but ask...

    I've veneered to solid wood without problems. An issue with solid wood as a substrate is that the solid wood expands and contracts. If you look at really old veneered furniture you may see splits...

    Why don't you put your location on your profile. Someone who lives close to you may be willing to lend you a spokeshave (or two). That would give you a chance to try one before you buy one. I have...

    Case hardening, technically, is when you have a piece of iron or steel of low carbon content - too low to be able to harden - and you infuse carbon into the surface of the metal so that the surface...

    The Lie Nielsen Boggs spokeshave is excellent. I have a bunch of spokeshaves of all types and the LN is the one I usually go for. But it's for fine trimming. If you want to hog off wood, you need...

    I have a Starrett 6" fractional dial caliper. (Here's a link to Amazon) I've had it for a bunch of years and it works great. I'm sure the lower cost ones work well, also.

    I have a friend who's close to 80 and he just quit playing. He had been playing on a "senior" team - I think that's what it was called - so all the other players were close to the same age. But I...

    That reminds me of a sign in a bar in New Orleans (where I grew up).

    It said:

    Requests $5.00
    Saints $10.00

    Now this was lots of years ago, when $5 or $10 was a lot of money. The band was...
