    Tommy Mac leaving Rough Cut When asked why, he replied that it was time for a change and that he was tired. I sort of expected this after he built that new shop. Looks like he will be starting a subscription service where he will do in depth videos.

    Can you measure your mortiser key?

    A 1/2 hp Craftex mortiser was given to me but it’s missing the chuck key. A Rohm S2A chuck (metric) key seems to fit but is too short so I can’t be sure it’s the right size; it is a 12 tooth, 6mm pilot, 17.6mm gear. The pilot hole on the mortiser chuck is 6mm so it’s probably the correct size. I...

    Raleigh Area Picture Window Replacement ?

    Our picture window was cracked. I called 2 glass companies for an estimate and one guy said something peculiar, he said that if I called a glass company they would probably charge about half of what he charges. So, one, he's not actually a glass company and two, he's not very bright. But now I'm...
