Re: I am a bit confused on this one from woodpecker .

Don't forget the track saw does an excellent job jointing a board to a perfectly straight edge. Also track saws are very easy for taper cuts. Added benefits excellent dust collection and they are rated to be a far safer way to cut.

Re: I am a bit confused on this one from woodpecker .

I remember a time when the trend was to use the plywood because it had a nice factory edge and would be pretty darn square. Of course it was all made in the good old USA and profit while important wasn't job one. Those days are long gone. The thing is you use plywood for various projects and as suc...

Re: Its only money ????

Well, they can always switch over to steel, as is used in many commercial buildings. I think Douglas Fir 2x4's in my area are on parity with steel 2x4's right now. Maybe in parts of the USA, steel is actually cheaper than wood. There is a learning curve to working with them, but carpenters can &...

Re: Kiss the apples goodbye

I agree with Garys. Apple trees usually survive light spring freezes very well as do cherry trees. The blueberries should be uneffected also. Now if you get a hard freeze things could change, with sap running up the trees I have seen the trees get frost damage. I have seen bad late freezes seriously...

Re: New Brand of Cordless Tools from Lowes - FLEX

Lowes just launched the FLEX line of cordless tools yesterday. I believe they sent free tools to certain social media influencers with the caveat that they don't give their opinion until after it launched yesterday. I don't know the channel linked below, but this is the first review that I could fi...

Re: COVID-19 - Vaccine

Wife and I got our shots no reactions. I have noticed a few things. I now scratch behind my ear with my foot, I have a dislike for cats and at times I get an urge to chase cars. Nothing serious though.😂

Re: Doing my 2020 taxes

Dusty wisdom tells us it is better to owe than to get money back. Money back might appear to be free money but in fact it is money that the government has held for a year without playing you anything for it. Best would be a zero return where you do not owe nor get anything back. There are exceptions...

Re: New Brand of Cordless Tools from Lowes - FLEX

Something no one mentioned is the line of battery adapters that are slowing coming to market. These allow using one manufactures batteries on a competitors tool. I do not know if some of the new battery sensor technology will stop this but right now most major brands have an adapter that allows the ...
