  1. for hand surgery. I had a locking thumb that was painful. The surgery was 2 hours ago and is already feeling better.I have flexibility already. But doc says no work until the stitches are out.

  2. I never liked most glues for mdf. The medium tended to float and shift even while clamping it together. But this thick stuff sets up fast, the mdf doesn’t float away, and it doesn’t get sucked in like a sponge. A very suitable use for the thick stuff.

  5. When the ground was hard frozen, I decided it would be a good morning to check on an old house. Worked good, until a 90 degree turn became a slow motion 270. An empty dually is the worst for rear wheel traction, even in 4wd. Plastic fender exploded with contact of small Pine tree. The 20 year old truck is not worth spending money on, so I decided to glue the fender back together. There had been one small split held together with 3M DP100 for 10 years, so I ordered three new tubes. That old repair held together fine setting up with no help, but creeped out of perfect surface align

  6. Mods, Sorry I put this in the wrong forum. I thought I was putting it in Off Topic. Must have been the epoxy fumes up under that fender.

  8. I’ve been eyeing the festool vac sys for a few years now but I really couldn’t justify the cost for a new one. The full set cost more than what I paid for my used pm2k. I would check the used market and even set up a couple of alerts on my phone but after a couple of years I never really had high hopes. Well yesterday guess what shows up on CL. Nearly spilled my coffee trying to hit the reply button. Agreed to meet early the next day and frankly I was still not convinced I was going to get it. Been burned more than a few times by Craigslist posters who agree on a price and time to meet then

  9. Hock Tools, to soon to tell need to sharpen the blade but had to run to CO to see a family friend who unfortunately has taken a turn for the worse. Will be back next week and I will let you know what I think. I think while similar you would not want to get rid of your card scrapers but I'll let you know if that assessment changes

  14. No expert here but I would think a blade with more teeth will result in a better (but slower) cut. With thin stock I find having a zctp (zero clearance throat plate) important If you don’t have one you can run a piece of scrap half way through and then clamp it down.

  22. Yeah, its an off road toy hauling camper. We dont do much with it any more so Im sprucing it up to sell it. I already had to rebuilt the galley five or six yeas ago. It simply fell apart while packing it down at the campsite. Put together with luan, staples and a dab of construction adhesive. It got rebuilt with plywood, box joints and wood glue. Cant tell it was redone at first glance.

  23. I took that last picture between glove changes. The double sided tape has a paper cover on it. That paper, as you can see in that last picture, comes off, and the mixing sticks stuck across the joint. I forgot to take any more pictures after that. That low crack right behind the clearance light was the 10 year old one. It was still holding, even after the impact, and it had no reinforcement behind it. The worst part of the job was cleaning the inside of the fender, to get the fiberglass to bond. The broken off pieces were easy to clean, so that was a big help.

  27. @Meatwad, how far west from Memphis? There is a place there called "The Woodwork Shop", independant business, but carries most of the same stuff you find at Rockler or Woodcraft. They can hook you up, I'm sure.

  28. Started work on repairing my Fleetwood Evolution 2 camper, starting with the hauling deck. It was built with osb covered in a plastic coating on top that was bolted onto the frame. Unfortunately they cheaped out and only covered the top of the osb so moisture got in and rotted the ends off under the plastic. Another really annoying thing is the size is six inches wider than a four by eight plywood sheet so I had to buy two sheets at $54 a pop to do the job. Then I also got a can of Deckover textured deck paint to approximate the original surface and waterproof the wood. I painted both sides of

  29. About 10 years or so ago, I was fortunate enough to purchase a set of Kiyohisa slicks from the maker, Watanabe Kiyoe, through So Yamashita (Japan-Tool.com). These have been incredible chisels and a joy to use when building furniture. As much art as tool. Part of the motivation for this thread comes from the completion of the underbench cabinet. Here are the Kiyohisa slicks in a drawer (beginnings of fitting tools into the drawers) ... Of course, over the years, I wished I have been able to order a set of Kiyohisa oire nomi (bench chisels). Not only were these very expensive sev

  30. Coop, the "collectibility" of the chisels is not a big concern. However, I imagine that a matched "set" would be more desirable than a hodge podge, at least for some. Regards from Perth Derek

  31. For the past 25 years, we have lived with these Ikea bench stools in our kitchen ... We do not eat much at the bench, but they get used. More recently Lynndy suggested that we replace them, and I thought that this would be a good excuse to build something inspired by Wharton Escherick, whose stools are just so organic and profound in their simplicity. The design was also influenced by a point made by Lynndy that a fixed-height footrest does not fit everyone. I thought about this and it occurred to me that the stretchers on the Escherick stools could fo
