    Thanks Tony

    I did order them, although the shipping is crazy.

    Silicone glue brushes on sale
    tgiro01
    I've mentioned these brushes before. They are great for those projects that require a lot of glue up - bowls, boxes, intarsia, etc.

    Peachtree tools has them on sale for up to 40% off - 50% if you buy a whole bundle. The website is here -- http://www.ptreeusa.com/edirect_061317_sili.htm...

    The plastic trays from frozen or prepackaged meals are handy from small parts or holding puzzle pieces while cutting and various finishing processes. Even better when they have lids for puzzles.

    So here is one fresh from today - Wife wants to get flowers for the flower boxes, tomorrow. So, I get the boxes out of the shed and realize they look pretty ratty - not broken or anything just look bad. I got my mouse sander out and ran over them with some 80 grit to smooth them out a little. Then headed...

    I get aggravated at my HomeDepot with everyone saying good mourning or something similar. The first time is fine but after 20 or so it gets old. I am certain that they must do that and it is so mechanical.

    ​​​​​The other side of getting bad advice is the customers. I heard one...

    One thing seems to be common in many stores is that the "assistance" doesn't actually listen to you. So they go off half baked with false assumptions. I have a Lowes and a Home Depot within 3 miles of my home, I prefer Lowes especially now that I have my VA discount card.
    They have a...

    Your story reminds me of the purchase of our first "real" PC after using a Commodore 64 for years. I recall the salesperson selling us a unit with a 40 MB hard drive - with supremely confident assurances that 40 MB would be the standard for the future - more than ample to meet any foreseeable...

    Hearing these memories about unknowledgable store employees actually made me chuckle.
    Not because it's a truly laughing matter, but it helps keep it in perspective.
    Sharing these "war stories" makes the blunders seem more common place, and somehow it makes it easier to shrug it...

    In my almost 69 years of age I have pretty much been involved with every trade and mechanical discipline. My dad was an old world German toolmaker. So my questions are very rare other than locating items. If I don't know I will do as the others do research on line, especially the proper terminology....

    The thing is - Lowes and Home Depot cater to contractors and Home repair DIY'ers. I use them for GP tools and materials. Since I usually know what I'm looking for, I don't have much of a problem with clueless clerks. I'll ask a lot of questions about plumbing, but I know the experienced guys and save...
