    I guess I’ll be the contrarian. If you are running your power tools much of every weekend afternoon in close proximity to your neighbors patio, as it sounds from the first post, forget the legalities and HOA regulations; that’s just rude and not very neighborly. (As is whatever is coming out of their loudspeakers if loud). Why not be the better person and move it to your garage instead of indulging in legalisms and revenge fantasies?

    No. I put the pivot point off center to take care of that. You loosen the clamp (these are $6 Harbor Freight specials), raise the handle end and then lower the bar a few inches. The toggle swings into line with the bar courtesy of gravity and you pull them out.

    Yes, I have tried every method, including drilling out the waste. Working very hard woods drives one to try it all .. Drilling, then splitting out the waste. Cleaned up .. End of my bench ... Regards from Perth Derek

    Wait, I think I've seen that in print somewhere. Oh yeah, I remember now. It was the National Archives in D.C. It's a little difficult to read the handwriting on the parchment underneath the thick glass case, but it's there.

    Well sure... if you live out in the middle of nowhere there ain't many rules. My family on the farm used to burn trash in barrels too. Well until the county finally decided that was a bad idea and started up trash service. HOA isn't all bad. Growing up one house we lived in the neighbors behind us were basically using their back yard as a junk yard. Had something like 8 cars back there on blocks in various stages of dismantling. Stuff like that really runs down property values. It's just you need a balance. And in my view... noise complaints is doing something outdoors after 10pm.
