Temporary Shop on Wheels Epiphany - 7 replies
I’m going to be moving soon. Packing all my tools up and paying for storage is more distasteful than selling everything off – and that would be horrible. The good news is that I was talked into watching a few episodes of Breaking Bad one evening after driving by campers and older motor homes almost floating away on flooded ground. I ...

Epic Customer Service Failure - 10 replies
About a year and a half ago I ordered custom wheel adapters (like this) from a guy in Nevada. I wanted to able to mount newer alloy wheels with new tires (Craig’s List gloat) to my older cars. I ordered them custom because I wanted the stud thread to match the studs on the cars that way I could use the same lug nuts. I spoke to owner of the ...

It’s been about six months since Neil last checked in. You might recall him mentioning this.., My current plan … is a huge Hail Mary pass. My retired cousin and I are thinking of heading down to Central America, in the early spring. Maybe spend six months … in warm, tropical climates. Skip the a/c. Explore that part of the world. May...

Going Through My Rust Bucket - 1 reply
I apologize in advance for not taking before pictures. For thirty years I have collected rusted tools in a 5 gal pail. This started when I found several hand planes in a basement that had flooded many times years before. The terrible rusted condition of these tools cannot be overstated. If I knew how effective and inexpensive electrolysis is I w...

Alert - TS Aligner Jr on Ebay - 3 replies
This might be the easiest way to obtain this great tool. I never understood why it seems so difficult to purchase from the maker. I also can’t understand why anyone would pay money for a Master (Magic) Plate when they can put a dot on their blade and get more accurate results for free. -Jack

I apologize for the trolling title. The sky isn’t falling-not exactly. I just read an article that I have to share-more on that later. Ink jet technology is pretty much old hat now and CNC machines are being made in home basements. Still, I’m amazed at how rapidly 3D printing is developing. A few years ago a friend sent me info on Re...

Used saw on Rochester NY Craigs List - 7 replies
If I wanted a budget table saw I would be contacting this guy. An old saw that was never touched might be nice, but (from the pics) this guy seems to have cared for his saw and upgraded it into a real nice user. $250 for a barebones old contractor saw is high. This saw, with all the table saw “fabrilia” (thanks Rich) included, might ...
