    replied to What to do with the front yard now
    I would find a grass seed mix high in rye grass. It will germinate in less than a week. You can oversees with a better grass seed later when temperatures are down. They also sell quick grow seed mixes. I prefer using straw and not the mats you buy in rolls. I have had problems with the nylon string...

  • The 18" Sand Flee is $800-1000.

    The 18" Flatmaster is $465 with no motor.

    I wanted one but because of costs built my own which goes on my Shopsmith and therefore is variable speed. I have maybe $100 in it.

    Trying to get grass started and growing in this type of weather will be very difficult. It would require lots of watering now and attention. It sounds like you have other projects to work on in the basement. I would level the ground out and wait until fall....

    replied to Bandsaw blade
    I use the 1/2" Woodslicer on my 16" Jet. I looked at going to a wider blade for resawing but found that it takes a lot of tension to use it properly. I actually measured the blade tension to make certain that it was correct. The gauges on some saws are not very correct. The high tension...

    It would help to tell us what bandsaw you have and what you are trying to cut. Just like a scroll saw, different blades for different uses.

    I use a Woodslicer, 1/2", on my 16" Jet to resaw. I have a 10" Rikon and use 1/4" and 5/16" blades.

    Want...

    replied to The end of the Internet
    Wow...I almost got run over by a lady on her cell phone. I was in the grocery store and she was in an electric cart on her cell phone. As funny as this is, it was very close to hurting me.

    I was amazed at how many crazy cart drivers in the store on their phones.....

    replied to The end of the Internet
    I love my smartphone and it is on all the time. The camera is great and so many uses. I take pictures and send them to my kids and they send back pictures of they and the grandkids are doing. I can not visit very often but can share things daily. I can also video talk with them.

    I also...

    Surprise...Surprise....

    I got a call back and not a happy answer. They mail them all out at one time in early June and the post office has until close to the end of July to deliver them. So I could have to wait another month.

    I do not really understand ........

    Where is My Magazine?

    It is a bit frustrating to read about everyone getting their magazine and I do not have mine.

    I called earlier in the week and left a message with a promise to get right back to me. I have not heard anything.

    I tried again today and again left a message.

    Those are very nicely done. However, my artificial joints will not bend that way without popping.

    replied to Sawstop SOLD to Festool
    Like others have mentioned, my wife played a major role in getting a Sawstop and that I am getting older. I had a cabinet saw and discussed the Sawstop with my wife who is the Chief Financial Officer. I expected to get turned down but instead she asked how soon I could get one. I do a lot of woodworking...

    replied to Sawstop SOLD to Festool
    I am not certain what is meant by Festool spring. However, Festool is not cheap but an extremely good product. Like some others, the price for Festool is the same everywhere.

    yes, Sawstop protects its technology just like any other company. Why not? Microsoft, Apple and every other...

    replied to Sawstop SOLD to Festool
    Both Sawstop and Festool make quality tools. I have a Sawstop PCS and it is very solid and well built. The Festool vac is one of the best made, HEPA rated and built to run continuously. I use one for my scroll saw and for sanding. And it is quiet with variable suction.
