  1. Thanks for another informative topic to add to my finishing skills (or lack thereof). I appreciate all of the effort you put into these great pieces.
  2. Was CC Cleaner mentioned the other day

    THis just popped up in my email- https://www.howtogeek.com/172820/beginner-geek-what-does-ccleaner-do-and-should-you-use-it/
  3. Ohh, it gets worse- https://irlpodcast.org/episode5/
  4. Great article about securing your Internet browsing. The only caveat is that you need to use Opera. Opera’s parent company is European, it was recently purchased by a consortium of Chinese tech companies. https://medium.freecodecamp.com/how-to-set-up-a-vpn-in-5-minutes-for-free-and-why-you-urgently-need-one-d5cdba361907 Of course this can be done in any browser, Opera just makes it a bit easier.

    Agreed! Turn off the CCleaner's option for cleaning the registry. Registry entries don't take up that much space. Unless you are constantly installing/uninstalling programs the registry doesn't change much. Don't forget, keep your antivirus up to date!

    Wouldn't hurt to update it. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
  7. You won't believe this!

    Awesome GIft! As Dave said, don't over do it!
  8. Dap Rapid wood fuse

    Remember to let it dry before turning on the lathe! I have spots on my glasses due to my forgetfulness!

    I hadn't received any special notification, either. Picked up the information from my G+ account.

    Thanks, Gene!
  11. Dap Rapid wood fuse

    I used it to mount a small piece on a waste block. I wondered if it could take the lateral pressure from turning. Held perfectly. I'll be using it for more things like this. The only clamp I used was the tail stock pressure against the piece while it dried.

  13. Ray's woodshop

    Sweet looking shop. I really like all that room!
  14. Help with ID

    I bought that box of planes from Craig's List and want to give some of them away as gifts. The first one is a molding plane and it has "J. Webber" stamped into the end of the body. Anyone have an idea when it might have been made? Wanted to provide a little info to the recipient
  15. Another thing, after all those years, there could be a break in the power cord wire. This usually happens near the back of the plug or at the strain relief where the cord enters the unit. Try turning the switch on and wiggling the wire as it goes into the plug and into the strain relief.
  16. #6. You didn't say but did you actually push the breaker to make sure it has connection?
  17. Help with ID

    Although I didn't find this one listed here, it might help someone else with research- http://oldwoodplanes.co.uk/makers-marks/
  18. Help with ID

    Thanks for the information. The opposite end of the plane did have a different name stamped in but it looked more like an owner's type stamp. Individual letters rather than all stamped at once. I found some references on eBay to J Webber planes but nothing definitive. I'll keep looking!
  19. Getting started on a "tithe box" for my sister's church.
  20. Imagine Grove

    Wow! He certainly has some neat stuff! Thanks!
  21. What do you see?

    My 7th grade art teacher, who was raised on a farm, said all I could draw were flies. I do see the rocks. Do you think shading the rock areas nearest the "mortar" would make them look more 3 dimensional?
  22. A Project in Maple..

    Got more done than me, today, but then you always do!
  23. WOW! That is awesome! Wonderful way to reuse the church's history.
