  1. Check the solenoid to see if it is operating when the zone is turned on. If so disassemble the valve and check the diaphragm for a tear, and check that there is not sediment(rocks and sand) in the valve.
  2. Yes, I've colored shellac and poly with trans-tint dye. It works well.
  3. It's always good to know when you're on your game, and when you should just go have a beer...
  4. Yes, I steam bent kiln dried walnut, birch, maple, and exotics to make fishing nets. The strips were very thin so I had that going for me. Nonetheless I had to steam it for much longer than what is generally recommended on the internets. Some of my bends failed on the walnut so I steamed the devil out of it and it worked better.

    Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all a very safe and prosperous new year, plus I want to thank you all for being here, plugging away at woodworking as usual. It's a great comfort during strange times to have you guys here acting normal. No drama. No strife. Just good people interacting like they always do... It's refreshing.
  6. Merry Christmas everyone. It's been one heck of a year. Cheers to all of you and best wishes for the coming year.
  7. John Prine recently passed away from covid. It's a great loss. He wasn't a tremendously healthy man to begin with. I highly recommend "Angel From Montgomery" performed by John Prine and Bonnie Raitt. It's a classic. You can find it on YouTube.
  8. Yeah, I like mine pretty well too. It's a luxury when you're living on a budget like mine, but it was a gift and I love it.
  9. Look for Shop Fox replacement bags. They are essentially the same.
  10. Make the Wood Whisperer sitting bench. There are a lot of M&Ts there to give you some practice.
  11. I married up too. I think it's the only way to go (if you can manage it). My wife is so much better at so many things than I am that it is a humbling experience and lessons learned every day. She's away for a few days, camping with her son and g-daughter, and it's all I can do to hold the place together until she gets back and takes care of me again.
  12. Happy Independence Day everyone! I hope you're all having a wonderful, healthy, and fulfilling weekend with family, friends, etc. ...enjoying the best of whatever it is you're doing.
  13. Yes, we are all thinking of you....
  14. Yes, I use it for jigs, table saw sleds, stop blocks, and supplemental fences. It is usually flat and stable. It's always good to have some around to bang together a quick jig, or whatever. Pre-drill for screws.
  15. Thanks, yeah I wondered if it was like walnut. The colors are certainly complimentary.
