Well, that was unpleasent to find... ATTN: Hide Glue Users - 22 replies

It’s just too cool to be able to glue up boards without clamps using this stuff! I was wondering, do an...

Will fiberglass resin work as a decent epoxy? - 6 replies

I’m working on my V Drum sander project, and I am at the point to fill my pvc pipe with the circle cutout on the center rod. The cutouts are just a tad bit too small. Since I need to epoxy them in, I’m not too worried about it, I’m hoping it will fill nicely (I HOPE!) Here’s my main question. I’ve got a quart...

Magazines and periodicals. WHY do you read them? - 15 replies

Hey Folks, I’ll ask the question that’s been asked 1000 times on 100 boards, what magazines and periodicals do you read regularly, but more importantly, WHY?

Just wondering how many of you are out there, and if we’re interested in a get-together later this summer.

Woodworking Magazines on itunes, amazon... - 3 replies

Just out of curiosity, has anyone heard if the bigger woodworking magazine (PW, FWW, WOOD, AW, etc.) have made any plans to publish an digital version for the Kindle, iPad, et al?
