Re: stuck mitre gauge!

If you are using the SS standard allen wrench or the T handled one they are too springy to turn a tight screw. I had a problem removing the cap head screws from the wedges that hold the knives in the SS Pro Planer. They would not budge with the long SS T handled wrench. I have a few Apex bit holders...

Ingenuity Mars Helicopter

Well, it successfully flew today or actually yesterday. It took until the middle of last night to get the data, pictures and the video down from Mars. It went up 10', rotated 96º and hovered for almost one minute and landed back in the same location. NASA has named the location on Mars as the Wright...

Re: MAG-DRO Alignment Tool Option

Nope! Not tomorrow. Likely not this week. According to the USPS tracker, it has moved 25.5 miles in the middle of Minnesota. There is no limit to how wrong I can be. My MagDro arrived USPS today.

Re: Cleaning sooty aluminum and other parts?

FWIW, this is what I use on the glass in the door of my wood burning stove. It cleans it perfectly . Sometimes if there is burned on resin because a log fell against the door it is a little tough. it might work. I don't know.
