    sold my first bowl(s)

    Robert, you had some great looking pieces on that table. I'll give it a :thumbs_up:thumbs_up. You are much too modest. You've come a long ways in a short period of time. Creativity, like cream, always rises to the top.

    Direct Tool Store -Mebane Tanger Outlet

    Yesterday the new Tanger Outlet opened. My wife won a $1,000 Tanger gift card (gloat) from radio station WCHL contest, so I accompanied her to carry her packages. There is a Direct Tool store there that was interesting. Most, if not all, of the merchadise were factory reconditioned with a 1 yr...

    Use for old chest freezer?

    I replaced my 30+ yr old chest freezer last year. The Habitat ReStore on 15-501 near Chapel Hill picked it up at my house. They said it was too old to put in the store, but they had someone who would take old freezers for parts. This was a quick and easy way to get rid of it.

    For woodworking equals double price

    Bruce, for cheap milk, go to Costco in Durham or's $2.59 a gallon. But considering all the gas you would use on a roundtrip from Apex, it would result in a hefty price/gallon. :icon_scra

    New Off Topic Forum

    Since it was not closed due to offensive posts, what would be the harm it it was reopened during this review. The action taken seems to be pre-emptive in nature which was what last year's board of directors was trying to move away from. It really does not appear to make sense closing it unless...

    Need any wood?

    Yesterday, I was driving down Duke Homestead Rd. in Durham and passed a house that had a HUGE tree (probably oak) cut into sections in the front yard. It would make someone some nice turning blanks. The house is on the right between the Duke Homestead entrance and Guess Rd. Is there anyone in...

    She hums but she won't spin - UPDATE

    I bought a $7.52 capacitor today and that solved the problem. Thanks to all for their input. Now to reinstall the belt. That's not as easy as one might think when dealing with a Reeves drive.

    She hums but she won't spin - UPDATE

    Re: She hums but she won't spin I spent some time this morning tinkering with the motor. I had tried turning it by hand to see if it would start and it wouldn't. Then I removed the belt so there was less tension and tried turning it again. It started turning very slowly and didn't speed up...
