    Pattern material to use

    I've use 'whatever was at hand' for patterns over the years. Last was a Rooster cut out of a piece of 1/4" blue plastic and another was a fence picket I used to make a all the other fence pickets. Nothing too soft - it is a 'roadway' for the bearing and you may be bearing down on it a bit...

    Anybody know what these are?

    Years ago I bought a kit to build a sander. Lots of metal parts and plans for the wooden parts the hobbyist (me) was to cut out and assemble. If you are interested, I'll take pics of what's in the box and post them here.

    Wanted 33.25" x 1.75" x 4.5" piece of hard wood in LENOIR, NC --- CLOVER, SC

    Hmmmm, petrified wood! Now, that would be durable. But difficult to work, no? I had no idea where Lexington, NC was. So I Bing'd it and came up with a generic route (one town to another) Via US-64 that clocks in at three hours for the round trip and twenty-seven bucks for fuel. Presently, I...

    Wanted 33.25" x 1.75" x 4.5" piece of hard wood in LENOIR, NC --- CLOVER, SC

    ". . . if Stair Treads came in 1.75" thickness as OAK . . . " Apologies for the innocent misdirection. I am NOT building stairs. I mentioned Oak Stair Treads 'cause I'd seen them for sale in LOWES and thought "They might come in seven or eight quarters thickness." Checked today, the treads at...

    Garage Door Insulation Project

    First, nice job - a craftsman did it! Second: Our chickens at the insulation on our factory insulated GD and the price for a section of that foam was "just too much!" I went with the Green stuff from Lowes - slipped nicely in place. The Basement and Shop doors are old fashioned low headroom...

    Track saw question

    Over the years I've owned several 10 in. table saws and none 'required' 220VAC. Some had motors that could be wired for 120 or 220 VAC.

    Track saw question

    Actually, I thought a trac saw could cut bevels nicely. Think I saw it done on Ask This Old House recently. For cutting along the 96" dimension of a three quarter inch sheet of plywood, a six hundred dollar track saw makes things look so easy. But, when you've gotten along without one for sixty...
