    Good enough.. Isn't
  1. Niagara ship model photos

    Absolutely fantastic, Al.. Way beyond my capabilities. Don't give up. Ever.. I like the glass enclosure idea. Keep posting images as you go. We like progress status images. Larry
  2. Windows Vista

    I got a white and black RS Coco..
  3. Windows Vista

    Sorry John1. Read it the wrong way. Didn't know your intent. Larry Jenkins
  4. Windows Vista

    WIN 10 and XP are not even in the same world. Win 10 is not user friendly anymore. Question still stands.. Any way to improve XP? In simple terms an 86 year old can understand? Thank you! Larry Jenkins
  5. Wednesday Fast Finds

    Al.. I have a very old large steel square. 2' x 3'. (Maybe smaller.. Too lazy to look.) Besides a fine power wire wheel, what do you use to make 'em shiny again? Larry Jenkins (Niagara?)
  6. Windows Vista

    No.. But I still use XP for all my Home design drawings. Wish there were a way to speed it up. I also have WIN 10. Any suggestions to improve XP most welcome. Larry Jenkins
  7. Discovered this quite by accident today..

    I live in the dark age.
  8. I made two new glass covers from Red Oak scrap today. I thought I had some 150 sandpaper to smooth out the surface. Could not find any. Here's the discovery.. I an redoing a half bath and went to the store and bought some of the screen that is used on a pole to sand drywall mud. Why not? Picked up a piece of the sanding screen and used it to finish sand the lids. I was amazed at how easy the screen cut and how smooth the surface was. Holey, so easy to clean. Try it! Larry Jenkins
  9. Woodworker II saw blade

    Over a hundred busks a pop. Had one sharpened by them a long time ago. Nice job.
  10. Wax

    Carnauba wax is the hardest organic wax known to man. It grows as a powder on the leaves of the Carnauba tress in Brazil. It is then processed into 100% Carnauba wax, both paste and liquid, known for it's deep shine and longevity. TreWax manufactures probably the finest grade known. That is all I use while "finishing the finish." No, I did not open the long link above. Larry Jenkins
  11. And, if you like using stainless steel screws, have a look at "Stainless Town." I used them wherever I could when I restored my last Model A. Very reasonable prices and fast, low cost shipping.
  12. Nothing really accomplished

    And if you don't comply with the conditions stated we will take the action indicated.
  13. Nothing really accomplished

    Yer catchin up to me, Al..
  14. Vagaries of age

    "As the twig is bent; the tree shall grow." So true.. Larry Jenkins
  15. outlets with surge protectors

    Hey Al.. What did they do back then when the Titanic went down due to bad steel?
