    Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detector Recommendations?

    A Duke Energy transformer up the road went south last week. When power was restored an hour later, the Firex smoke detector in the basement went bonkers, continuously sounding the alarm. This alarm is interconnected with a second alarm upstairs, which was going off also. The upstairs detector...

    Drill press (was) kicking GFI breaker

    I had a flaky GFCI in the kitchen, which tripped every so often, when the microwave was turned on. I checked that all connections were tight, but intermittent tripping of the GFCI continued. I replaced the GFCI, and issue has not come back.

    Spindle Or Hand Sand?

    I am working on a table with curved skirts (no, I am not wearing the skirts). After running the pieces by the spindle sander, I still have a few bumps to flatten (may not be noticeable in the pics). Would you touchup using the spindle sander or sandpaper attached to a curved piece of scrap?

    Bandsaw Tire Check

    I do not know why the blade lube is funky this time. It even came off on one of the guide bearings.

    Bandsaw Tire Check

    I wouldn't think so, as the tire stayed in place when I slipped it back on, and cut the 2 remaining pieces.
