    Great Stuff Tip

    Most of you have used the Great Stuff expanding foam in a can before, I believe. One of the shortcomings of this product is the straw applicator that comes with it. It can usually only be used once. I had a need for this product yesterday and couldn't find the adapter/trigger that came with...

    TS Dust Collection Improvement Tip

    Just a tip that has worked for me. I have a Ridgid hybrid tablesaw with the dust collection connection at the bottom of the cabinet. The cabinet as shipped from the factory had a lot of air leaks which I sealed with gaffer's tape to improve dust extraction but that still left the large cut out...

    Another tip on what NOT to do

    I think my chisels have it out for me. Another one got me tonight. Luckily no stitches this time, just a small slice on the top of my hand. I recently lowered the rack that holds my bench chisels to make it easier to reach. It still is a good foot off bench height though. One thing I didn't...

    Side Chair construction tip

    Upon making some dining room chairs, I was in a dilemma about how to machine the back leg. The back leg and back-rest were cut as one unit on a bandsaw (see photos). I had no problem sanding the kerf-marks on a stationary belt sander, but the joint where the seat attaches became a problem. I...

    Maybe a Useful Tip

    I thought that we had a "Tips & Tricks" forum, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I wanted to put a relief cut on the bottom of some shop sawhorse feet, but didn't want to make a MDF template for a 10" cut and I don't have a bandsaw. I took a hand held router with a 1/2" rabbet bit and cut the...

    New tip

    Someone may have thought about this before, or not. I'm slow sometimes. Wanting to route a decorative edge around a board, I've always clamped it to my bench, routed until I hit the clamps, then move the board and route some more, repeat until all edges are routed. Couldn't think of a good way...

    Red Tip

    Just took out a bunch of +30 year old red tip bushes. Some of the branches are 4" - 5" diameter. The bases get up to about 8" dia. I don't turn...never caught the spinning disease...but if this is any good for turning let me know and I'll set some aside. Have no idea as to what it might look...
