  2. Spring time in West Central Indiana

    That's what we had Tuesday and Wednesday. Pretty much gone already since the sun has shone everyday since. Glad this storm in headed to the southeast and still can't figure that one. Storm isn't even supposed to make it cloudy here. Hooray for me. Stay safe Dave.
  3. Estate Sale find

    You've done more than just OK. You out did yourself. Nice haul!
  4. Has to have the foam or your day won't be happy and bubbly.
  5. steel studs

    The glue was mentioned for using drywall. Wouldn't be necessary for the plywood.
  6. Tabs on the Weather...

    Low 40s fun in the sun day. Can't believe that new storm is going to slide right under me.
  7. Estate Planning

    My friend Tom was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business He knew that he would inherit a fortune once his sickly father died. Tom wanted two things: • To learn how to invest his inheritance. • To find a wife to share his fortune. One evening at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary man," he said to her, "but in just a few years, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars." Impressed, the woman obtained his business card. Two weeks later, she became his stepmother. Women are so much better at estate planning than men.
  8. Well, Crap!

    Plowed the drive Wednesday. Six inches of that wet stuff was out there. The neighbors with snow throwers didn't get very far and the wet snow clogged their machine. So far we are not supposed to get any because the storm is supposed to stay south. Hope that doesn't change.
  9. Last Few Days?

    @Buck NallI'm OK, Thanks for caring!
  10. Matag wringer washer

    Exactly Stick.
  11. Opinions please

    Those are oictures from Google Images but mine are in that shape. As we all know a little care for our tools goes a long way.
  12. Opinions please

    I have this Atlas lathe and tooling and also a 3 and 4 jaw chucks. It has a six inch swing and has been adequate for what I have done over the years. It has self feeding capable and I wouldn't want to be without it. I also have a Unimat hobby lathe and have used it more than the bigger one. Having both is great. It doesn't have self feed but I wish it did. It can be transformed into a milling machine in a few steps. I haven't often had the need for that but glad it was available when needed. A couple times I needed bigger but It wasn't for anything related to woodworking and I have a friend with a machine shop and used his. I haven't any experience with Grizzly machines so no help there. It is the same as getting a wood lathe. The are plenty of goodies to go with it to spend your money on. It is a lot of fun just the same.
  13. Tabs on the Weather...

    Cloudy and mid 30s today.
  14. Lathe in Reverse?

    Rusty, I have a metal lathe and took some metal rod and turned them for this project. The part that goes into the plastic decking material is turned to .260 so it is a press fit into a quarter inch hole. There is a hole drilled through the shaft for the string.
  15. You always pick on the difficult pieces of wood to turn. I like how you find a way to make it work and don't give up. You manage to end up with some wonderful turnings. Thanks for another weeks post.
  16. Give me a W!

    Nice! I like the magnet idea. Dan
  17. steel studs

    Glue doesn't have to be run full length of stud. Couple spots enough to keep it from sliding around.
