I'm installing my PowerPro lift assist today and ran into a little snag in the adjustment procedure. As many know, the cylinder comes fully extended. With the lower assembly pushed left as far as it can go without interfering with the cylinder rod, it is still to long to snap onto the ball. Do I som...

Re: Blades stuck together

I know some of you will "gasp" at this recommendation, but why not take a propane torch and lightly heat one side around the arbor hole. Hopefully, the expansion will pop them loose. Of course you don't want to get it so hot that you ruin the temper of the steel.

Re: Thin Wall EMT Way and Bench Tubes

Ain't she cute? I quickly assembled it without the wooden plugs (yet). I was very careful about snugging the clamps. The EMT bench tubes are 26-3/4" and the way tubes are 26". I plan to mount the planer on this excellent SS rolling base, which became available after I mounted my drill pre...

Re: Caught up in the crowd

Although I confess to buying a few Powerball tickets recently with the jackpot being so high, I generally subscribe to Dave Ramsey's point of view. The lottery is for the poor and those people that can't do math. :)

I read with great interest Erlovers post regarding our Dear Leader. Too bad the thread has been closed. I can imagine who requested the closure. The same people who want to take our guns also want our free speech. The 1st and 4th amendments are under attack by the same ignoramouses that are attackin...

Re: Simple bangle project

They are a ladies bracelet. They are a solid circle of what ever material they are made of and must be slid over the hand.

Re: Simple bangle project
