    Heavy duty rubber flooring in the shop?

    I can only echo what several others have already said. I used the stall mats from Tractor Supply and trimmed them to fit around my Robust lathe. It doesn't move.

    how do you store your chuck jaw sets?

    Stuart, I hang my Easy Wood jaws on nails using the "release hole". It requires a pretty steep angle but, once you establish that angle, they go on and off the nails just fine..

    how do you store your chuck jaw sets?

    I also use finish nails in vertical columns. I tried keeping them in sets of four on longer nails and shower curtain loops but they are too awkward and bulky. Went back to each jaw having it's own nail with a label at the top of the column or the type of jaws that belong there, ie "EW2" or "O5"...

    Lumber in New Bern

    I built a house in New Bern 3 years ago and used Garris Evans for my main lumber supplier. I found their pricing and service better than Guy C. Lee which is located on the other end of town. I also bought some nails for my framing crew's air guns at Builder's Discount when Garris Evans ran out...
