    Shannon,
     
    I have been considering these lights for my shop. I see you installed two; is this a two car garage?

    I was wondering if it was a #3 or maybe a #2.......

    well, it only took me 2 1/2 hours to get the darn things loose enough to remove the blades. Now I can take a couple over to Fastenal and hope they have something that will work.Unfortunately, Ace Hardware has the worst selection of metrics possible... I have tried before. I really appreciate the help. Especially your assistance PB that was definitely above and beyond.

    Thank you so much for your help. I appreciate it...

    In desperate need of parts...
    Folks,
    I have exhausted all of the avenues I know of looking for this....

    I have a Ridged TP1300 planer. 2 of the blade lock screws have rounded off and the parts have been discontinued by the mfg. I have tried epartsdirect.com and a few others to boot. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I can't see spending hundreds for a new planer just because I can't get a 75cent part.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hey Boatworks... I have used the GF Saladbowl finish quite a lot. As far as sheen goes it is somewhat like a semi-gloss to satin depending on the surface. I usually flood the surface and let it soak then wet sand, I do 2 or 3 coats with the final being a wipe on for a nice sheen. I typically use it on turned bowls I know will be used with food products and I have used it thinned 50/50 with mineral spirits as a soaking finish for cutting boards. The boards I have prepped this way have held up very well.

    Jamie,
     
    I went through this adventure last year as well. I ended up deciding on the Mitsubishi Split system. I t worked great through the winter and keeping it cool through the summer. They are not cheap but worth the expense.

    Workshop Safety... This can happen to you!
    A good friend had a fire in his shop this week. He was always very aware of safety when using the different tools etc...
     
    What took out his entire shop was a bad electric cord to his lathe. It was plugged in and it failed, overheated and caught fire. he lost decades worth of tools he had acquired. We focus a lot on the personal protective gear but rarely seem to focus on items like your cords and extensions. Make sure you unplug your tools when not in use and every so often make sure the cords, connectors and outlets are in good shape.
     
    Fortunately this shop was not attached to the house or this retired shop teacher would have lost everything.
     
     
    Regards,
    Chris

    Worst I have ever smelled by far has been a tie between Ebony and Kingwood
  15. croessler added a post in a topic GF Enduro Poly vs. High Performance Poly   

    I have only used their High Performance for  refinishing Hardwood floors with their cross-linker additive. It worked extremely well for that purpose.... AS far as the High Perf is concerned it applied easily with little to no streaking and dried quickly.
