    HVLP Spraying

    If you're going to shoot small amounts and/or change the colors/material a lot, you want the gravity gun. The suctions take longer to clean but are usually larger and their guns are easier to hold for large projects.

    Forstner labels

    I have one set of sockets and wrenches that have nice large, high contrast numbers on them. I've never understood why that isn't more common.

    You can only choose 3.

    I had a 6" jointer for a while but I sold it for the Jet 12" joiner/planer combo (my old planer was junk, but it was given to me). It triggered a jointer trickledown in my neighborhood. I sold the jointer to my neighbor for what I paid for it (I bought it used) and he sold his old 4"...

    Great use for an old piano. Not mine.

    When they said they wanted to use that side of the balcony, I was thinking, hey it's plenty wide (about four feet). I forgot to account for the roof overhang. The deck on the other side is about 20 feet wide (that's how they craned the granite in for that room). If I had been smart, I'd...

    Two FREE Cabinets - Gone to a good home!!

    You can always take them to one of the Habitat Restores. There's one in Denver in the Westport shopping center next to Food Lion. They're unattended frequently these days, but they've got a designated drop off place around the left side of the store.

    Great use for an old piano. Not mine.

    For less than the price of a good tuning hammer, you can get a bit that chucks in a drill that will make quick work of unwinding the pins.

    Fun with epoxy

    The countertop looks great, Margy's very happy. Essentially, it looks like shiny 2x4's. Some lessons learned: Put better light in the room. This room is fairly dark (the camera makes it look brighter than it is. The only light comes from the open door and a small light fixture. Almost...

    Fun with epoxy

    My neighbor ripped out his kitchen so I spent a few days relocating the junk cabinets into Margy's garden shed. As it didn't come with a countertop, I just got a dozen two by fours, ran them through the jointer and glued them up. While I was poking around Lowe's looking for something to finish...

    What type of Shoes to you wear in your Workshop?

    I pretty much wear my New Balance velco-strap walkers (my wife says she's married to the worlds oldest two year old who can't tie his shoes).

    ISO tires for my 14" band saw

    Not too long after I got my ancient Grizzley saw, I purchased a bunch of things from the Carter people including their urethane tires, and a couple of their different blade guide thingies. Haven't had a problem.

    Brief Downtime tonight

    Not that I know of. It's just a maintenance upgrade, various bug fixes and some security issues. If all goes well, you won't even know I've done it.

    Help your local medical personnel: Masks

    Margy was talking to an acquaintance who is involved with pediatric respiratory cases and they are in desperate need of N95 masks. Margy had a half dozen that she bought because we were expecting to be in smoke-laden Australia in February (fortunately the fires were out by the time we got...

    1PH vs 3PH

    It's not too distinct sources. It comes from a single step down transformer. It would be illegal in most circumstances for it to come from multiple "sources".
