    So what is the difference?

    Worked at Lowe's in electrical- gang box, handy box, outlet or switch box. All the same thing with a different name.

    a utility project

    Sheer genius on the design! I like it.

    Gun Stock

    As mentioned, I have shot competitive trap and skeet in the rain. Tru-Oil holds up the best of anything. If it gets scuffed or scraped, clean the stock and reapply more Tru-Oil. You don't have to do the whole stock.

    Gun Stock

    Birchwood-Casey Tru-Oil which is a "modified" linseed oil. Used it many times! Worth it and waterproof.

    Shenanigans on the lathe today

    Begorrah. Sure an' it's an Irish grind. Thanks for the info. Have a bowl gouge but can't remember what size.

    Gary, what tool did you use to turn the segmented bowl in the first picture?

    Question on box fan filters

    I have a box fan that holds the furnace filter in place with a bungee cord. Wife saw this on TV and suggested it. Works great. After a session in the shop, I turn it on high and let it run for at least an hour or when I remember to turn it off. As for protecting your lungs, I wear a dust mask any time I'm doing anything with wood.

    Table Saw! Powermatic vs. SawStop vs. your favorite!

    Does anyone remember when cutting wood was done with a handsaw? It's interesting how woodworking was all done with hand tools.

    Getting ready for the new season

    Someone tell him about a hot branding iron. Or a Palmer Handwriting book. Wonder if his bats will pass MLB standards?

    New storage shed

    Didn't notice that you lived in Florida. I live in SE TN, still deal with humidity. 2018 set a record for rainfall. Anticipate a dry summer.

    Will you have to deal with humidity?

    So this happened today... New SawStop.

    OK, question answered.

    So this happened today... New SawStop.

    Instead of a brake that hits the edge of the blade and ruins it, why not make a system like the disc brakes on a vehicle- pads come in from the side to stop the blade? Curious.

    Do you need your tools to "match"?

    PH, that's right but I could sure eat good. The only thing about campers and motorhomes is they are just another house to keep. My parents had some friends who bought a houseboat- same thing, more housekeeping. Sold it after two months. Waterfront? Not a saltwater/beach person. Mansion? Wouldn't need it as I would never be there. I would rather have a few hundred acres out west with trout streams and lots of big game. Right off the bat, most of the money would go to the kids and the eight grandkids. Also, if I won a real big lottery, I would pin mistletoe to the seat of my pants and walk around the courthouse three times.

    If I had a billion dollars, I wouldn't be buying tools and working in a shop. I'd be gone in a big pickup and camper. Then tell everyone I don't know when I'll be back.
