Craigslist posters have gone nuts..... - 4532 replies
I frequent several lists near to me. OK! I’m just a tool junky.I see stuff that looks as if it had been on the Titanic. Dirty, dusty, rusty, and just unkempt.

I would REALLY like to know why someone has blocked an individual.I have tried to be very careful about critical issues, and yet I find that I have been blocked by some with whom I would like to correspond…..An issue could be addressed with a quick reply rather than an arbitrary blocking.Any thoughts?Bill

I have some “SawHorse” brand saw horses (duh!!). They have seen a bunch of use over the years, and have collected a really nice patina of various paints and colors.Just after cleaning the oven grills with oven cleaner, I had a brain f@rt. Hmmmm? Wonder if oven cleaner would get a large amount of the crap off the plastic saw horses...

Just a thought about your profile.... - 33 replies
Sure would be nice if everyone would put a location in the profile section. Does not have to be anything more exact than a state or even a region.It would make responses more fitting.

Then, a coat of pas...

I have my TS fence set with a slight outfeed offset for clearance. Fence is normally set to the right of the blade. I would change it for the rare work right of the blade to prevent pinch.

Cleaning up the shop this afternoon, hung a foot on the mobile base for the Magna (Shopsmith) band saw, pulled it over, and TRASHED the plastic front cover. Anybody got a Shopsmith 11” bandsaw front cover? The saw survived, but this sure crapped out my afternoon.
