Different approach

I've been planning on modifying my cover on my bandsaw to have a hole for the wrench and a window to view it while adjusting to the blade tension. However, my experience with glass, plexiglass, or acrylic tells me that they all attract dust like a magnet. Yes, my badsaw makes lots of dust. So, I dec...

Re: COVID-19 - Vaccine

I just returned from getting my second shot. We went to the local COVID Drive-in. They were so well organized today that they were able to pull in around 75 vehicles at a time into the exhibition hall and vaccinate everybody in 5-10 minutes. Then after a 15 minute wait, they opened the door so we al...

Re: COVID-19 - Vaccine

Here we are doing drive-in COVID shots. I drive to the Community Center about 2 miles from my house. They open the garage doors and run in about 40 cars at a time into numerous lines inside the exhibit hall. There, they check you in, while you sit in your vehicle and administer the shot right throug...

Re: Spring time projects: Bird House Repair

Squirrels are rodents and rodents will chew anything their teeth can cut through. If you want to make them squirell proof, weld them from steel. They can't chew that up. Or, put up a squirrel feeder that the birds can't get into and fill it with rat poison.

Re: COVID-19 - Vaccine

The air guns were banned after a few years when they found them to be contaminated after a few shots to different people. They turned out to be infecting people with hepatitis if anyone in the line had it and it was used again after that.

Re: Recent MDF prices??

MDF seems to be in short supply right now. Also, it seems to me that plywood has been high priced this Winter.

Re: COVID-19 - Vaccine

I got my first one a few weeks ago and am scheduled for my second one on Thursday. My Wife got her first one a few days after mine and is scheduled for her second one in a couple of weeks. The good part is that we are getting them locally so we have to drive only a mile or two to the clinic. Now we ...

Re: Back to the glue pot

I find that tearout on butternut to be quite common when I work with it. Even sharp carbide router bits seem to leave some of that stringy tearout that I end up sanding off to finish the wood. I've never worked with chestnut so I don't have any experience with it. If you see stringy tearout or "...

Re: Went shopping today

Knotty pine is usually available at any basic lumberyard by simply buying their lowest grade of pine. If you want the nicer clear pine, buy their higher grade of pine. Menards here sells 3 grades of pine so pretty much whatever I want they have.

Re: Went shopping today

If you take that trip, talk to all your woodworker friends before you go. They might want some hardwood too and you can pick up some extra and sell them some to cut your costs of the trip.
