    Tool Story...How I Got My Original RAS

    Someone asked and I don't want to read a capstone project report. I'm sponsoring a team to rethink bowl sanding. I remember when my father purchased a DeWalt RAS from the Lazarus department store (Columbus OH) back in the 1960s. He built slopping front cabinets for the porch to kitchen...

    "This connection is not private..."

    While on a road trip and staying in a hotel I went onto the *.org version of the NCWW. Since then, every time I hit the "Home" button I get a warning that the connection is not private. Is this a Mac thing (for which I'm running out of patience. About ready to switch back to Windows machine)...

    What finish would you use?

    Husky Chain Lube

    Winterville Lowes has Husky brand bar/chain lube for $11+ change/gal. Cheaper than I can buy it at TSC with an employee discount. Wondering if they are closing out Husky for Craftsman. YMMV.

    While processing all of this green wood I've just received, I was turning a 14" crotch piece for turning the inside of the bowl/platter. The Nova Titan siezed on the lathe spindle. I managed to get the chuck off, but now the spindle threads need chasing, 1-1/4X8. I don't have a die that size...

    Grinder cover

    Got tired of seeing the growing mound of fillings from the CBN wheels spreading, so I built this cover and tossed and old speaker magnet in the back. Some of the Lexan came from a golf cart windshield found on the side of I20 somewhere in GA. Need to trim the top lid a little. I left it long...

    "How to" Make a Strainer in a Hurry

    Needed to spray some herbicide this weekend and the sprayer was full of crude. Found a safe place to dump it and rinsed it out. Now to refill it. I've got a 15 gallon supply of the herbicide that tends to collect floaties and other things that won't go through the nozzle. Needed a strainer...

    Stumbled across an announcement that Robust is now offering gouges. Brent is starting with a 5/8" parabolic. Interesting. Like all things Robust, these are not priced for entry level users, IMHO. Looks like the Robust webpage has gone through...
