    Anyone have an old PC router with speed control on the fritz???

    I have an older PC 8529 that the speed control quit working on a bunch of years ago. It was 3 years old when it started acting up, but only had about 3 hours use on it. But out of warranty. New speed control was over a hundred bucks...out of the question especially when PC couldn't answer my...

    Christmas Music Time!!!

    If anyone is interested, I have a YouTube playlist that is unlisted with a little over 4 hours of A Capella Christmas songs. If you use Firefox (32 bit) or Waterfox (64 bit) download Adblock and you can cut out all the YouTube generated commercials. Other browsers may be able to do the same...

    What material for a DIY rail for Biesemeyer fence?

    I've finally decided to go ahead and make a new fence mounting rail so I can use my Biese fence on the Grizzly G0691. I can get steel or aluminum tubing in the correct size. Steel in 3/16" wall, and Aluminum in 1/4" wall. Would the Aluminum be strong enough and hold up as well? Or will it...

    Color me stumped...Garage door issues.

    Hi! I haven't posted here in a while, but I have been looking in periodically. Got an issue with our garage door. This is a normal roll up door of wood construction. It is 18' wide. About 3 weeks ago, we started getting a gap at the left side. I have tried increasing the tension on the...

    Anyone here made their own Biese fence tube?

    I'm looking for a less expensive alternative to the 250.00 Delta 78-055B fence tube. I'd like to use my Biese fence that is currently on my Ridgid 3612 TS and be able to use it on my G0691. Hopefully I can make adjustments on the rail so that I can keep the same fence adjustments and switch...

    Any woodworking stores near Fairfax, VA?????

    Headed there next month for a dog show at the Frying Pan Park near Dulles airport. Host hotel listed as Fairfax. Won't have a lot of free time with the club activities going on, and my wife's aunt and uncle and a married cousin or two with kids. But if there is a place close, I might be able...

    Home antenna build for TV

    OK, I'm through with Charter TV. Last couple months, price has increased a little with another increase this next month. All in all about 10 dollars, they say mostly taxes. At the same time I noticed that several channels dropped out. I called last week and evidently they had me on a plan...

Make sure you have the sub woofer on when you listen to it or you won't...

    I think it's toast....

    I was mowing Sat before dark, just the back yard, when clatter, clatter, clatter, pop, pop....pop, and the engine died. A little background, this is a mower my Dad gave me 3 years ago, I have no idea how long he had it before then, probably 5 at least. Craftsman hydrostatic with a Briggs &...

    I need some of Peachtree's heavy duty T-track, and looking for coupons or free shipping. The 8' piece carries a 19.00 shipping expense for the oversize. Might decide to go with two 48" units. TIA!! Jim.

    Flat screen TVs...which one do you like and why???

    Well, it looks like the LOML is going to allow me to use some of the IRS return for a new TV. I had been totally against Plasma units from the negative hype that has permeated tv talk the past few years. But research shows that the image burn in and low life issues have been dealt with. LCD...

    Time to show off the new additions to the Coolmeadow household...

    I put this together last night, but after previewing it to make sure everything was ok, I must have failed to send it. :huh: :doh: I'll do this in chronological order of how they came to be. In the first of December, a shelter over in the Dallas area had 2 pups, one of each sex, that looked...

    I may get to start on this later this year.....

    So in my normal way of doing things, I'm going to throw out some ideas, and ask for some feedback. The couple that owned this house before evidently loved baby blue. So they installed blue carpet and painted the fireplace to match.:huh: It is, was, the same brick as the outside of the...

    Another of those "If anyone needs me" threads....

    I'll be away for a few days. Surgery at 7:30 am tomorrow. I likely will not be feeling like posting for a day or 2. LOML will bring me my laptop when I feel up to it. Play nice while I'm gone! ;) Jim.

    Anyone here watching the "Sing-Off" on Monday nights at 7:00?

    If you like A Capella groups you will love this. There are only 2 shows left, but you can go to http://www.nbc.com/sing-off/contestants and listen to all of the groups numbers. My favorite, Pentatonix, just blows me away. The 3 singers are from Arlington Tx, here local to me, and the bass and...

    DDR3 10600 1333MHz laptop memory, 2 gigs

    I bought my first laptop a few weeks ago. HP was very nice in sending me a Win 7 Pro 64 bit restore disc so I could replace the 32 bit OS that the computer came with standard, (at no charge!!) so I was able to upgrade the memory to 8 gigs of Corsair. It's running great now, but I do have the...
