  1. Here is a few I made years back. Danl
  2. What did you do with your old cordless tools when you replaced it by purchasing a new one because it was cheaper than to replace the battery on the old one, which would no longer hold a charge and the batteries were Ni-cad? Danl
  3. Postal Tom, what you are asking about is what I have in my shop. I has time, temp, humidity, day, date, month, etc. I can monitor the temp and humidity in two location. Purchased from Menards when it was on sale. Danl
  4. I was given two pieces of advise: 1) working past 5:00 pm is working Overtime, regardless of the time you started, and 2) taking a nap is doing something. I must be the odd man out. It took me 9 months to adjust. I received a phone call last month asking me if I wanted to come back and take a short term assignment in New Orleans. My wife saw me spooling up just thinking about it. I call back and said thanks, but no thanks. Danl
  5. Estate Sale find

    The owner of these items most likely was not a woodworker/carpenter and probably inherited them. At the auction where was a carpenter's tool box. The action company pieced out some of the items. They put these tools in a box and I had the highest bid. I was originally wanting the 71-1/2 plane. The 71-1/2, 101, and spokeshave have evidence of gentle use. I did find some markings on the underside of the handle of the spokeshave but they are not very legible. I think it is a No. 53. The blades are clearly marked Stanley Rule and Level Co. I can not find any info about the gouges. Bill, what is/are sans handles? Ebay has an 18" Phelps panel/marking gauge for sale, asking $199.95 Ouch! Danl
  6. Allen, If your mover is taking I-44 through St. Louis, I would be interested. Danl
  7. Estate Sale find

    I went to an estate sale action today and purchased the following for $37.50, one lot. I believe I did ok. Danl . Stanley No. 71-1/2 router plane with 4 blades Stanley spokeshave with 2 blades Stanley No. 101 thumb plane with 1 blade Marking gauges or Pattern makers panel gauges 18" and 10" Phelps Mfg. Co. Oakland CA Gouges with case - no certain what kind. 7 sizes 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 7/32", 1/4", 5/16", & 3/8"
  8. Are spouses invited or is this gathering just for those who have sawdust in their pockets? Danl
  9. Kitchen Back splash is installed

    Thank you for your kind words. It was a task which took days, but we are pleased. thanks again. Danl
  10. My wife worked hard sorting through the boxes of porcelain tiles, from HD, so that we only used the “pretty” tiles. I wanted to have a “mirror image” corner and we did not want to have vertical gap lines near each other between the 2nd row and the decorative tiles. She also wanted some of the tiles rotated 45 deg. We used approx. 132 6” x 6” tiles and I had to cut all but 16 of them. Used 1/16 spacers. Yea it is complete! My wife is happy, so I am happy. Danl It
  11. Ice Sculptures

    My wife and I visited an ice sculpture contest yesterday. The tools used where most interesting. Perhaps Jesse could put some diesel fuel in his motor home, head North and compete next year. Danl
  12. Kitchen Back Splash

    the tile are Marazzie Travisano Collection glazed porcelain tile 5-13/16 x 5-13/16 x 5/16 thick https://www.homedepot.com/p/MARAZZI-Travisano-Trevi-6-in-x-6-in-Porcelain-Floor-and-Wall-Tile-10-12-sq-ft-case-ULNJ/205141226
  13. Wife Died

    My sincere condolences, Jim. You are in my prayers. Danl
  14. Kitchen Back Splash

    My wife has finally found tile for the kitchen back splash which she believes she can live with. She did not want subway tile nor glass mosaic. That accounts for 98% of what is on out there for sale. My wife was wanting to have a 1/16 grout gap between the tile. It is my understanding that matching caulk is used between the tile and the counter top and between the tile and the wooden refrigerator panel. What gap is commonly used in these locations when 1/16 gap is between the tiles? I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance. Danl
