    Sticky: Most of the tools like this are double insulated...

    Most of the tools like this are double insulated and that's why they can use a 2-prong plug. If the tool is double insulated, I suspect the safety recall is for cases where you would route into a...

    I did it twice. Really no choice. I wanted to do the remodel and absolutely could not afford to go live some place else. One remodel was a kitchen - but pretty major. Added on to the house to...

    I already have another brand of oscillating tool and I don't use it very much. Maybe a couple of times a year. I don't want to put $300 into a tool I use that little and to replace an equivalent one...

    A lot depends on whether you expect to live there for a bunch of years. If so, I'd spend the money if the location and the finished house is what you want.

    All houses require maintenance and if...

    I don't know the price of that SS but the rust is not a problem. Even if it was really bad and left pits in the surface it would generally not affect the operation of the saw. Most of the time it's...

    You can use dowels just fine. Another approach is to buy some of those shish kabob bamboo skewers and use those as dowels. Just clamp your drawer together as you want it finished and drill holes...

    Yep, that's one of my options. I'll see what they have and make a decision. The Fein MultiMaster kit is about $300. If I flip it I should be able to net $250 to maybe $275. I'd be happy with...

    A few problems with buying wood from them: (1) they're quite some distance from me and I only have an SUV to haul the wood, (2) I don't have a lot of storage space, and (3) I don't know what projects...

    Thanks, Sam. 6" is a bit larger than I'd use. If they made a 5" I'd be interested in that. For a lot of the work I do a 6" sander would be a bit big.

    Need Advice on Tool Purchase

    Okay, I have an unusual situation. I won a $300 store credit at Capistrano Hardwoods. My problem is that they're a long drive from me so I want to make one trip and use the whole $300. The only...

    Just a comment on the hollow chisels. They have another use which is squaring holes, especially for those arts and crafts furniture square plugs. You make a wooden "handle" for them by drilling a...

    You're right. I just wanted to point out that workers do that (tie back the guard) as well as cut across their leg. I wasn't trying to say that the two were required simultaneously to cut your...

    THEY STILL DO THAT!!! I have a friend who's an emergency room nurse (and a woodworker). She gets guys in the ER who have cut across their thigh. She always asks them what they were doing and...

    The fan I bought was about $750. For round numbers, let's say $800 installed. Four of those would be $3,200. That's a lot of money in my book. I can buy a real whole house fan for less than...

    Here's some pictures of how to do the dovetails with a chisel.

    I'll start with the cuts already made.

    While some people like to saw out some of the waste on through dovetails, it's very, very easy to just chisel it out. After you make a cut towards the back of the pin area (where the pins will go),...

    I added a "whole house fan" to my house. It's really not "whole house" because the CFM of the fan is too low.

    Around here, the temperature drops quickly once the sun goes down so my idea was to...

    It might help people if you put the sizes of the tools. For example, in the Swiss system, a V tool might be a 12/6. Since you have two V tools, they're probably different sizes. The tools should...

    I can buy it from my local hardwood supplier. Where are you located?

    It's VERY expensive. If I recall, last time I looked, it was about $64/board foot.
