    Only 35 gallons left!

    Mike, Klingspore didn't move all that far. Check their new address either on the back of their catalog or online. They are just one town away from the old location now. https://www.yellowpages.com/cary-nc/mip/klingspors-woodworking-shop-539487300 Charley

    Nice try scammer but It didn't work

    He called me a couple of nights ago and I was already on Amazon, so did similar with him. He isn't too bright, because he called me last week and I did the same thing with him, but this time he swore at me before hanging up. I've also been getting a lot of emails from banks reporting that "my...

    Dropped Arbor nut?

    Well, JB Weld is kind of what I was referring to when I said "5 minute epoxy". Charley

    Dropped Arbor nut?

    Instead of CA glue, how about 5 minute epoxy. It just requires 5 minutes of patience to hold the magnet in position, but being a steel arbor, the magnet should hold itself there, but it might want to slide a little off center if you don't hold it in exactly the right place. Or maybe 5 minute...

    Current Project. FINISHED

    I love making projects like that, but my wife has forbid me from keeping them in the house. She likes them too, but hates dusting them even more. So the few that did make it into the house, I take into the shop every few months and blow them off with the compressed air. Then put them back in the...

    Dropped Arbor nut?

    Possibly might help centering the nut as you install it too. I'll be trying it today, well maybe this week. A lot going on today. I have always kept one of those extendable retrievers with the magnet on the end, for finding the nut and stabilizers in the saw dust, and keep it on a magnetic tool...

    Driving in Albuquerque This Time of Year

    Simulator? I got to land the Space Shuttle on the newly built simulator, but they didn't yet have the aerodynamics to load into the computers for it yet, so it had the cockpit of the space shuttle, but the aerodynamics of a 747. After I landed, my buddy, who had designed much of it said, " not...

    Violins

    There are videos of Marta performing at shows and weddings including her acrobatics while playing. Can you play any instrument upside down while hanging from the ceiling? She adds LED lights to both her violin and bow for some of these shows. Here is one of them. And another Charley

    Driving in Albuquerque This Time of Year

    When I lived in NY State, my home was in the East glide path to a small airport that was mostly all private aircraft. They had a skydiving school with a Lockheed Loadstar for the jump plane and there were many balloonists flying out of there, but I don't know if they ran a school there or it was...

    Restoring bent clamp

    Try some solvents to get the green paint off. Start with the more mild solvents like alcohol, then acetone, then paint thinner, and then lacquer thinner. When all else fails, start with a citrus based paint stripper. Ketone would be next, if you can find it. For straightening, I think Jim...

    New Shop Journey

    I frequently design while I sleep, and sometimes wake up and put it on paper so I don't forget it. Then I sleep better, knowing that I have the problem solved and documented. Trouble is, sometimes when I wake up and look at what I've put on paper, it's obvious that it is totally wrong. Well, at...

    New Shop Journey

    When I moved here from NY State, I watched the handle of my shop push broom, bundled together with other long stuff, go into the moving van. When we got here, I watched it and the bundle leave the truck and go into the house. Later, as we were unpacking and putting everything where it belonged...
