« Part 4: Shop tour! YAH BABY! (Giant Sanding Machine & More...) Part 5 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 6: OUR BEST EPISODE YET- If I do say so myself... »

This week the cameras catch us installing gas heating in the workshop and we share some of the tips that help us make multiples of the same project fast. Plus, we review the new Trend blade cleaner and their 60 tooth blade and wrap up with the return of the humor segment: “Stumpy’s Evening Advice”- where you learn how to get out of making projects for people

By the way ditched the complicated four part per episode numbering system (1-1-2, etc.). You’re welcome…

Every episode gets better and better. Love the tips. Making multiples, gluing small frames, but not avoiding favors – I think I’ll just learn how to say no. If you have a friend who’s a lawyer do you ask for free legal advice? A doctor, do you ask for free health care? You’re a professional woodworker. It’s inappropriate to ask you for free woodwork.

You mean like, say, GIFTS?

Stumpy do you give all your wood joiner planes that much tlc? Great show and I agree with the other guys, the tips were great. I have a heater like yours and haven’t hooked it up yet. I have been warming with electric heaters. Might have to give the gas a go this winter. I started with kerosene and it leaves black crap in your nose.

I don’t really build “gifts”, but I do know that my local gift shop doesn’t give its inventory away.

FYI-:You should be using yellow thread tape, not white, on gas lines. Yours truly, the safety czar. :)

What is the difference between the White (plumber’s tape) and Yellow (?) tape?

Thank you…

Hey Stumpy, I’ve got a problem with this video. I could not, no matter how hard I tried, find anything to rag on you about. ;^))) Good job.

Actually yellow thread tape and white thread tape are almost exactly the same. Both are made of the same material. The yellow tape is thicker, but I’ve found that the white works just fine. If you want, just give the white an extra wrap so it’s twice as thick. If you have the yellow, use it. If your building codes require an inspection of gas lines, they will likely require the yellow stuff.

Another option to pulling the plug on the TS when your working on them is on the switch itself. Most switches have a through hole or channel on the back side of the ON button that you can put a rod through which will prevent the switch from activating. In an industrial setting you would use a long hasp padlock and lock out the switch, but anything that can’t fall out can work to prevent accidental activation. Quick, safe, and free.

I also noted the white teflon tape; should use the yellow, but I think the only difference is that the yellow is thicker. If it’s being inspected, use yellow.

Great videos!
