    Yeah, the big issue is lack of shipping. Look into what it would cost to ship - say to the middle of the country - and let people know. You'll probably get a lot of interest. It looks like a good...

    Windows 8.1 is a good, solid operating system. I hate the "Metro" interface but 8.1 lets you bypass it. However, I installed start8 to bypass the Metro interface.

    Once you get past the Metro...

    The BB I buy is 5X5, also, and it's metric thickness. Never had real 1/2" BB.

    And I've never had a problem with good BB. I bought some ersatz BB one time at the Borg and it was bad - lots of...

    This is a bit off topic, but the local coffee shop I go to gives you a free cup of coffee on your birthday. On my birthday one year, I asked for the free cup. The gal gave it to me and I asked her...

    I've used maple, mainly because I had some nice figured maple in the right size and I thought it looked really nice. To get the hole, I used calipers to measure the tang at various depths and then...

    I remember reading an article about it in Reader's Digest when I was a kid. I was able to answer a Trivial Pursuit question about it years later -"What happened on the 79th floor of the Empire State...

    Yeah, I had a flat and it was impossible to get the lug nuts off with the tool that came with the car. I don't know if the tire company puts the lug nuts on super tight or age and corrosion locks...

    I had that problem a while back and it was because the edge was too hard. Once I ground the edge back with a few sharpening, the edge was okay.

    My new laptop has 4GB of RAM, 128GB of SSD and a 4 core processor running at about 1.5GHz. I got a deal so I took that, but I would have preferred to have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD. I suppose I...

    I just bought a new laptop (not a top of the line unit) and I'm amazed at how fast it is. One suggestion is to get a SSD (solid state drive). That will speed up your PC significantly.

    Urea formaldehyde glues became available in the 1930's (if I remember correctly) so I would guess that's what it is. The industry seems to have converted pretty quickly because the UF glues were...

    If you're buying for the long term, I'd certainly get one with a riving knife for safety. And if you can spring for the price, I'd recommend the SawStop. It's a lot cheaper than an ER visit.

    The Stanley 79 works very well. Just make sure you get one with the depth stop. I use a 79 to widen grooves (with the grain). Might be more difficult for dados that are cross grain. You can cut...

    It's not bad but there's no "start" button, and it starts up with the tiles. Then you have to switch from tiles to the classic interface. Also, it jumps back to tiles every now and then - for...
