  1. Ross, did they have to raise/level the whole house which would include drain lines as well?
  2. My favorite smoothing plane is a DW735. When the blade(s) get dull, I order more.
  3. When I bought my ETS 150/5, I bought boxes of 150, 180 & 220. The boxes show P150 Rubin 2, P180 Granet and P220 Rubin 2 and each have a hole pattern to match the sander pad. To order more discs, I went to Festool’s site and don’t find these with the hole pattern but do on Amazon. Also on Festool, I see they have a Granat Net. What disc have you guys found favorable and from where did you get them?
  4. Funny how a simple plan morphs into a bigger more expensive plan. As far as a journal, slow down, you’re retired. Take some pics and create a dialogue! Looks like a fun project.
  5. Now those are cool. How will you mount them to the wall?
  6. You just have to do away with the blue end of that board ASAP!
  7. Maybe take a scrap or three of the same wood and replicate the whole process and see if you can come up with a solution. Kind of like they do with the Space Shuttle.
  8. Larry, do you still have some of the bubble wrap? Does it have any kind of oily finish on it? Probably not but just a thought.
  9. This is like me telling Einstein how to do something as others will attest. I take a pic and it goes to pictures. Then attach the pic as an attachment. If further instructions are needed, you better wait until others wake up.
  10. Quiet a move. Political and logistical. That aside, that is a great looking shop.

    Deck Stain

    Glad I didn’t offend you. We’ve never had one as our neighborhood is rather old. I have a good friend that wanted to be involved in his and joined. He said his phone rang 24/7 and he got out. People pissing and moaning. I agree, it should be for cars in the yard and in the street, etc., but sometimes it’s worse than Washington DC! Oh, and good luck on your deck!

    Deck Stain

    And your HOA denotes what kind of stain you have on your deck? Do they use drones? Sorry, I hate HOA’s!
  13. Good job, Ross and Cody!
  14. Wiped on by choice! Smooth application. I seem to remember that Steve @wdwerker‘s choice of color was red heads! I miss that guy.
  15. Parallel meaning they are side by side, right, and not end to end?
  16. Years and years ago, some of the bicycles ( not mine as we couldn’t afford them) had what we called magnetos or dynamos that would run lights for night driving. I guess now days they are called alternators. Do electric cars have something similar to help charge the batteries?
  17. If it weren’t for the back pockets, I’d have sworn those jeans were painted on!
  18. Ross, did you take the initial pictures?
  19. That’s one of the old originals. Probably 1940’s - 50’s? Green in color?
  20. At first glance I thought they were some sort of specialty dado set.
