The Sword of Victory - 6 replies

This is my new wooden sword, that I might be King and knight people when I go to Burning Man. The blade is cherry with a zebrawood guard and redheart pommel. Cashmere silk wrap on the handle. The runes are Elder Futhark (the oldest runic language known), and say “Peace through victory” on one side, and “Victory throug...

Busted by the wife - 6 replies

One of my earliest and best shop memories is hanging out with my grandpa in his shop. I remembered he used to have the 40’s style pin-ups on the wall, and I thought it would be a great idea to get some for my shop.

Husqvarna 435 16" Chainsaw Starting Problems - 9 replies

Got me a brand new chainsaw, but damned if I can get the thing to run. After about 5 attempts and 100 pulls, I got the thing to run for about a minute.I’m doing everything right, according to the manual.
