  • Should I Wax My Dewalt?

    The old scroll saw that I used to use got a rusty surface in my garage. I read about people waxing cast iron scroll saws. Should I do this on my new used DeWalt?

    Yes, use Johnson paste wax with no silicone...silicone will stain your wood.

        I used wax paper for a long time. Then I decided to try the Johnson's paste wax. It really works well, lasts a long time and makes the table slicker than slick. (tried to be good and not say anything bad LOL) I'm a believer.

                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
