Re: Pipe Clamps using electrical conduit?

Re: so much for

It is warmer here this morning than it has been all week a balmy 9. The highs last week have been around 2 to 4 and the lows -15. To me this is just a normal winter that we use to have. All the call for global warming would not be happening if those crying about it would stop spreadin all their hot ...

Re: Dead brand new Powerpro

Re: Joining plywood

I like the spline idea, but I'd orient the grain of the spline crossways to the seam, or maybe at a 45 degree angle. Busting a 1/8" thick spline lengthwise along the grain wouldn't take a whole lot of force. Of course, unless you have a mighty wide board to crosscut your splines from, you'd ne...
