8 hole adhesive sanding discs - 9 replies
I wasn’t sure where to post this question so please bear with me. Does anyone know a good source for 5” 8 hole adhesive sanding discs? Locally I can only find hook & loop 8 hole or adhesive without holes. Maybe they are phasing out the adhesive with holes? I found a few places online but the selection is limited. Any help is appr...

Frog Lube - 0 replies
I just heard about this product. http://shop.velcronius.com/main.sc It is a eco- friendly firearm CLP. I was wondering how it would work on a steel tool table / tools.

Help finding a hooking lumber rack system - 2 replies
I would like to build a light duty overhead lumber rack. My idea is to hang it from the rafters with a hook system that will hook over the rafter then connect to a 2X6 built rack. The idea is to be moveable & adjustable. I hope I am being clear enough. My problem is finding a metal hook that will fit over a rafter board & bolt onto the r...

MDF Prices - 7 replies
In my area MDF 3/4”X4’X8’ is roughly $32 a sheet. Seems expensive to me. Is that the norm around the country or am I just being cheap?

Nothing Controversial Here - 14 replies
I have been having some licensing issues with the USCG for the past several months (I am a licensed Merchant Mariner). It has taken up much of my free time (virtually no shop time since February or so) & seems to be finally settled. But it got me thinking surely the rest of the world doesn’t have these types of problems just to hold a ...

Rattle Can Spray Paint - 5 replies
I am wondering what kind of rattle can spray paint LJ’s are using.

Miter Angles - 6 replies
I understand the formula for figuring out a miter angle (360/sides/2). Maybe I’m lazy but isn’t it easier & less complicated to just divide 180 by the number of sides? I get the same answer when I try both ways. Is there something I’m missing? Are there situations where this just won’t work?

My good nephew came over & helped me bring it home & we put it together. The instructions included could use a rewrite but in about ...

What worries me is lately ( within the last month or so) I have seen 3 Bosch 4100-09 on Craiglist. All 3 said the same thing- “new motor”. I am wondering if the motor...

Carving on a Picture Frame - 1 reply
I am about to build a picture frame out of Purpleheart. I want to add a relief carving that will run across the top & down each side to about the half way mark. I am thinking that mitered corners will weaken due to the carving. Can someone suggest a different joint that would stand up to a carving like this? Maybe a half lap joint? I’m...
