When I have two pieces of wood... - 8 replies

that I want to attach together should I use some kind of adhesive, use nails or ask Lumberjocks? When I find a spot on a piece of my equipment should I clean it off, read the directions for cleaning the equipment or ask Lumberjocks? When I adhere to pieces of wood that should not have been adhered should I tear them apart, cut them apart or ask ...

Good morning and good Saturday... - 5 replies

Let’s try an experiment. Let’s see if we can get through the entire day without any dumbass posts. Posts like “How much would this cost” and “First router”. You would make me soooo happy.

Glue guns - 17 replies

On occasion during glue ups or dry runs I will use a dollop of hot glue to keep things in place. I seldom use my glue gun and it seems there should be lots of uses. When do you guys use your glue guns?

Let's talk about spelling... - 36 replies

If you don’t care about your spelling do you care about the quality of your work? Are you as lazy about a job well done as you are about your spelling? Do you proof your work and not your writing? I don’t think so. Lazy in one area, lazy in another. It makes sense…

Lumberjocks I have never, ever asked a dumb question. I figure after all that time I am owed one. Here is the question. “How do I do the quoting process when responding on a thread?” I am on an Android tablet and do not have access to a Windows machine. I see the light tan backed quotes on posts and can’t figure out how to do i...

Common man's/woman's workbench...SHOW US YOURS - 225 replies

The workbenches pictured in the Workbench Smack Down thread are some of the most skillfully made, beautiful benches I have ever seen. However, I do not think it is representative of the majority of the workbenches used by the majority of the good fellows on Lumberjocks. I think there are a lot of very good and functional benches out there that s...

Best cordless tool warrantees... - 27 replies

In my last post concerning corded and cordless drills B4B brought up a point I did not know. He said the Ridgid cordless drill warranty covered batteries. This is enough to cause me to buy a couple of Ridgid drills. What are your experiences? Have you taken advantage of the Ridgid battery replacement? Are there other brands with similar warranti...

How many of you own both corded and cordless drills? - 41 replies

I have owned the same two Dewalt drills for over 20 years. Every five years or so I buy new batteries and continue on. I’m about ready to order another set of batteries. I asked myself why not just buy corded and be done with the challenges of battery powered drills. Or, should I buy corded drills and a new set of batteries, or, should I b...

If I purchase an item... - 61 replies

based on a lumberjocks 5 star review and find the product not to my satisfaction can I expect some sort of financial compensation from the reviewer for the faulty review? It is my opinion that far too many products are just flippantly given five stars when most normal, sane lumberjocks reviewers would not. I think the threat of financial renumer...

Are you prepared to die... - 10 replies

Whether or not we like it generally speaking women outlive men. If you died tomorrow have you prepared your shop for your death. I’m primarily talking about do you have an inventory of all your equipment and tools to make it easy for your wife to sell them and not get ripped off in the process. I still have to make a list of everything I h...

Kristine, oh my Kristine - 6 replies

As quickly as she appeared she disappeared. I’m not the suspicious type but I’m thinking she was trolling all the guys that have said they are comfortably retired. Why, you ask? Sugar daddy time I’m guessing. Someone to take care of her in the later years, the dead zone if you will. The time of life when nothing works as in th...

Another great post from DKV - 20 replies

Someone once said that they were able to “retire comfortable”. Just exactly what does comfortable mean? To me it means one thing to the next person it could mean something else. To me it means being able to, within reason, buy anything that strikes my fancy. Whether that be something to do with woodworking, a trip or a car. It also m...

offered to renegotiate a contract when the contractor under bid the job? I have had many different types of contractors for many jobs. On several occasions when I learned the contract was misbid I offered to change the contract. It’s my feeling that a happy contractor provides a happy well done job. I’ve also had contractors turn dow...

My brother in law sold me this for $300. He thought he wanted to make bowls and discovered he didn’t have as much time or interest as he thought. Now I need to take a trip to WA to pick it up.
