    Good grab... My FIL worked at a small furniture plant for a while. They sold off gaylord boxes of scrap for about $10 or 15 at the time. White oak. But was mixed parts that had defects. I made a few items from a box, but it wasn't worth the...

    If mitered joints, I would just cut at start of miter, burn the small square left, picking the staples or screws out of the ashes. I actually look around and see if you could find a used Jet or other brand abrasive belt sander, Drum over a moving...

    It was an almost identical article I read 2 or three years ago, probably about the time of the Bankruptcy. It laments government not being in the ammo business and two large monopolistic companies. Sounds like google and amazon to me. It isn't...

    But there are very few business owners that have that philosophy. I have only been buying equipment and supplies when I have cash. I have zero credit owed to anyone. I work from home, so zero overhead going out to anyone. I looked at renting a...

    For roughly a year, all guns from the three distributors were allocated. Which meant if you weren't an established, high volume dealer, yuh I were out of luck getting anything but a random pistol and a few long guns. Fast forward to about 3...

    Well, in reality, good enough is when I chamber a load it goes bang and a bullet hits the target. I'm not nearly anal or at all good enough to think I could shoot 1 inch groups with factory ammo all the time and there is enough variation in our...

    Well, it's never easy. We put out gifted to us dachshund that we'd had for about 12 years down 2 years ago. I had to put down the male rat terror last fall, he and his two sisters were 13 at the time. They still look for him. Their dad also last...

    That ain't a harbor freight dremel. Those shafts don't have any vibrations to speak of and are way easier to use then any dremel sort of tool. Find someone local who has a Fiber laser. They are getting to be fairly common and most folks that do...

    So, I didn't go back and look up your wreck post, but I'm assuming you were the one hit and other driver is at fault. If so, AND you weren't hurt/or looking for the OP to pay for your injuries and all you want is a replacement truck, I would advise...

    Agreed. I sold off and held in cash inside my IRA right before the 2019 election. Then bought back same funds and stock. I missed out on at least a 5% increase... Has been bumpy this year, but I'm just letting it ride. The only real place that...

    With as many of these as you have, a dropbox subscription might work well for you.. You can give other folks a link to a folder or the whole thing and put passwords on it. I wouldn't waste my time with thingiverse, even though I peruse and print...

    SUGER? They might get in sugar, but they aren't gonna reproduce there. Grains yes. But unless there were a ton in them, they'd get eaten. Make dog treats if you don't to eat it. But a few weevils won't hurt you. Do you Really think that flour...

    There is only so much land. While growing corn strictly for ethanol may not directly result in less food for human consumption, it lowers what is grown for animals. Farmers are highly subsidized for ethanol grain production. You lose mileage...

    It's been going on for a long while. No employees, too few employees, careless employees, and inflation. That $15 minimum wage, is going to be worth $10 in about a year. BTW, if you a paypal account, yeah I know, you can save about a buck...
