    Dewalt 18 Volt Batteries

    I bought a couple of the generic replacement batteries for my DC9098 in 2015 from Amazon. They are still working just fine after 5 years. I paid $52.99 for a two pack, but that brand does not appear to be available anymore. I do see quite a few others in the $35 to $40 range. ...

    Sound system..?

    I have a notebook Windows computer connected to a Harmon Kardon stereo receiver and four in wall speakers, plus a couple of outdoor speakers on the side of the shop for the back yard/deck. There is a 28" led TV used as a secondary monitor, and for watching TV, although that rarely happens in...

    Just Plain STUPID - Lowes

    I did call it what it was, a good deal. Your comment about scamming was at the very least, rude.

    Worried too much about wasted wood?

    That's a tough one. I make a lot stuff from pine, so most of that scrap I don't worry too much about, although I do hang on to quite a bit. I have several bins and shelves around the shop filled with hardwood 'scraps'. Like Brian said, hate to have to cut into a nice. large piece of lumber...

    Ridgid warrantee made useless

    Had to have my Ridgid ros serviced. Did the claim at Ridgid online then brought it in to Home Depot in FV, with paperwork from Ridgid online and they sent it off to the the repair facility, which I believe is in Raleigh. Ridgid did offer the option to send it direct to the repair facility or...

    Repeat with better photos

    That would also be my guess. It really looks like "whatever was available" wood.

    Citric acid..

    I have used a batch of citric acid solution to de-rust several several hand planes. It seems to last quite a while. If it starts to slow down, you can add incrementally more to the solution to get it going again. In my opinion, it is more economical than using a commercial product like...

    Router table router died

    I'm not sure if my situation applies, but here it is. I also have the PC Speedmatic router, motor only. I have mine mounted in a router lift. Those little nubs proved to be a pain when trying to orient the router motor in the lift, so I just cut them off. Since I did not buy a base for the...

    Citric acid..

    I used it quite a bit. It works pretty well. A weaker solution takes a bit more time, but seems safer. I never really measured, just dumped a small amount in a container and added water. Once the rusty item was placed in the solution I checked it after 10-20 minutes or so and looked for...
