You Neve Know - 0 replies

My friend of 60+ years picked up his shotgun, went into his back yard and ended it all.He had had cryptogenic neuropathy for over 13 years. I always thought he would go the pill route when he couldn’t take it anymore.It would have been easier to tell his small grandchildren that he died in his sleep.I feel sadness for his family. I have n...

Popup Blocker - 20 replies

The popups are becoming a real bother to me. A few are blocked by MS but come up in back of the main window by the dozens. The there are those that take over the whole screenI would like some recommendations for blockers that do the job. In the past, years ago, I used a couple but they seemed to let the same ads in as the URL’s were chan...

Just when I had it made - 12 replies

I got an email from an Uganda princess that she wanted to send me a bunch of money because I am a good fellow. Just now, “Helen” from the IRS called and warned me that I am in deep Kim Chi if I don’t call her back immediately! And just when happy days seemed here at last.:)

DW 708 SCMS Adjustment. - 2 replies

I have managed so adjust the saw blade to 0 degrees and 45 degrees to the left but cannot get the blade to 45d to the right. The adjustment bolt is below the right adjustment bolt for the 0 degree scale. I have adjusted it and the degree pointer will only move about 10d maximum. If I kept turning it it seems as if the bolt would come out comp...

Which one of the Bosch jig saws is considered the best? I do not do well with a BS. Yes I have tried and tried. I still want to move curved items opposite of the way they should go.

Cutting tenons - 12 replies

I have had nothing but problems cutting tendons on my table saw and router table. With the router table I have used a coping sled with a two cutter bearing bit. I have yet to get a tendon set up and final cuts made in under 30 min. Even with a backer board I get tear out. I have a cast iron tendon jig to cut tendons with. I still get tear ou...

Now What? - 29 replies

I know I believe I know where I put it, but I’M not sure I realize where I thought I put it is not where it is. That explains my misplaced LVLA Jack iron that I honed while standing at my work bench. I have no recall of ever taking it anywhere after I was done with it. I honed my smoother, waxed it all up and reinstalled the iron. I wa...

Insight - 14 replies

I have finally realized I am tired of woodworking and photography. I still have three clocks and a blanket chest to make and then I may well sell out. It has always been a struggle for me. I can’t, for the most part, read drawings and most written instructions are gibberish. After much introspection I also realized I have not felt any s...
