    Garage Door Insulation Project

    Bruce, each of my 4'x8' sheets weighs 5.13 lbs. With the backer rod my 4 sheets of insulation is adding 22 lbs, which is somewhere in the neighborhood of a 10% increase in the total weight of the door.

    Garage Door Insulation Project

    Mike, I've seen kits that have 1.5" insulation that is regularly kerfed so its flexible enough to fish inside the "C" shape but you sacrifice the foil facing on both sides. Also, my local big box stores didn't have anything in that thickness that wasn't pink.

    Garage Door Insulation Project

    With the temperatures dropping in the last several weeks I was reminded of the promise I made to myself to insulate my garage door before it got cold again this year, both for my own comfort and also my kerosene consumption. My doors have a "C" shaped cross section that is a little under 1...

    Heavy duty rubber flooring in the shop?

    Charles, I don't have them all over the shop, but I do have a few rubber stall mats ($39@southern states) under my bench to help planes weather the occasional drop to concrete.

    Moving a table saw suggestions

    Kurt, 400# is well within what you can handle with a typical dolly, depending on the shape of what you are moving. Alternatively, you can move really heavy things with lengths of pipe and a pry bar (similar to the stones used to build the pyramids). If you have a really steep driveway, I...

    Garage Shop - Looking for new design ideas

    Rick, One of the best things I did in my shop was building storage above the garage door. Mine is just tall enough for one row of those black and yellow Rubbermaid tubs.

    Eclipse Honing Guide - Angle Calculator

    Good Morning All, I thought I'd share a little tool I use to set my Eclipse-style honing guide. Its a little spreadsheet that allows you to set your sharpening angle by measuring the overhang with your digital calipers. This...

    I think Lee Valley may have jumped the shark on this one...

    Bridge City made that thing as a one off for a trade show in China several years ago. It was so popular that they turned it into a product. If I recall the article correctly it was something done at dinner parties that the guests could take home with them. Not my cup of tea, but forging...

    High efficiency wood burning fireplace

    I have had quadra-fire units and Jotul units in 2 different homes. Both have performed well and have a reburning system rather than a catalytic converter (wear item). Take a look at the Quad 7100 as an option. My 5100 performed flawlessly, though it is a free standing unit rather than an...
