    replied to Lowes Picking up Craftsman Hand Tools
    I was never a fan of Craftsman power tools. I always though they were for "homeowner duty" and for most normal usage they are great. For heavy duty usage I go with higher end brands. My dad was a big fan. The only Craftsman tools I used heavily and still do are the mechanical ones, wrenches...

    replied to Fall Issue #72
    It is another great issue! But there was a bit of sad news in it. Mindy has has left the Fox Chapel family. She mentioned it in her editors notes.
    I wish her well and will certainly miss working with her in my capacity as a test cutter....

    replied to Which end is up?
    On Olson and other brand blades you can see the gap between the teeth. feet is the easiest but laying the blade on a piece of white paper makes it easier to see. The flying dutchman blade direction is not easy to see or feel, but like Sandy said the top is marked....

    A lesson learned! Dehydration warning.

    Just a warning to all of us about hydration or should I say dehydration. I spent Thursday night and half of Friday in the ER. My wife's son was visiting from NC so we decided to go see all of the changes in their old neighborhood. Hurricane Sandy caused severe flooding in it. Their 200+ year old house...

    Was that buried in the wall? It looks like what we have found in our house. That is why I completely gutted each room as we have done the renovations. It amazes me that people don't have more electrical fires.

    They are "self oiling" to a degree just like sealed bearings. But the oil does get dried out and the grease in bearings gets dry and lumpy. There is also sawdust that sucks up the lubricants.

    replied to SuperMax mystery
    Technically for me it is more of a bushing than a bearing as it has no moving parts like ball bearings.They are called both depending where you look. They are used in many applications, like small motors, my first Dremel had them. The scintered bronze is porous and retains the oil. I have a lot of hours...

    Carole I doubt you will wear out your welcome, you have probably influenced more people to buy a Super Max than any of their other customers.
    I agree that is odd. I think that the bearings on the table end rollers are actually oilite bushings not roller or ball bearings. I will have to take a...

    I hope you are feeling better!. My first project on our house taught me that it is never as easy as you think it will be. There are lots of surprises.
    The good thing is that each piece that goes up brings you closer to the finish.

  • Nicely done Denny.
    The cutting is the easy part, the assembly not so much. I built a jig with laser cross hairs to simplify the assembly alignment. My main frustration on these is glue squeeze out.

    replied to SuperMax16x32 Drum Sander
    Sorry to hear about your health glitch. I agree about Supper Max being a great company and like Carole very pleased that their sale to Laguna has not changed that. I also get the paper from Klingspore. You will wonder how you managed to do work without one.
    I have been using lots of thin Cherry...
