  1. What i have been up to.

    Too bad with the injuries...heal up quickly... It's a good thing you do... helping a member of the next generation learn the craft and tools...kudos...
  2. Christmas Presents

    WOW...FANTASTIC...Sure can tell how much care you put into them...lucky recipients...
  3. 150+ years old table

    Nice restore project...
  4. Duh...why didn't I think of that (slapping forehead)... Great idea...now all I need to do is pick a pen to cannibalize...
  5. Smart 2X4 $900-$1200 EACH!

    Just my luck I'd pick it up for a piece of cutoff, rip it down the middle and make sumptin useful out of it...CHEEEZ...
  6. I have the Ridgid and the Bosch...like them both. First bought the Ridgid because it felt most comfortable in my hand after checking out a bunch of 'em...then bought the Colt (recently) because I left the Ridgid in my "satellite shop" and I needed a trim router (that day). Now I grab either one and they both feel good...(BTW...I now keep one in the truck (mobile satellite shop)...don't need to buy a third...LOL) Buy either one but make sure the clamping is adjusted to hold firmly before you use it...both slipped on me first time outta da box...
  7. I was really proud of this

    "I" dunt see nuthin wrong, Lucy...

  10. madonna and child

    No doubt about it...you are now officially "a sick puppy" No doubt affected by the Colorado influence...
  11. Transfer Switch

    My bad...interlock will prevent tying gen to street...thanks for "grounding" that error...
  12. Transfer Switch

    A manual transfer switch will always have the potential of backfeeding into the street. Any number of things can happen...street wires could be on the ground...melted together making a short, etc...or as has already been stated, frying one of the workers. This would happen if you inadvertently left the main breaker on. And then there's the issue of having the breaker on when power comes back (if you forgot to turn it off)...opposing out of phase AC is not aesthetically pleasing... A separate sub-panel, as has been mentioned, for those items you want backed up would be helpful as you could then turn off its breaker... (I've already done this part) Strict discipline will be required...and you can't always count on that in an emergency...especially if somebody else is doing it for you. I'm going through the same thinking and have decided I can't trust others...Murphy will dictate that I'll be somewhere else when the juice goes off... Having said that I haven't found the right automatic switch either although there are many out there and recommendations abound for which one to get. I have decided though to have a real electrician install it for me... I'm comfortable enough doing my own stuff usually but I stop when I can't bend the wires...
  13. Kitchen Project

    WOW...beautiful and great ideas (wall storage, half legs on island and everything)...I really like the doors design...may have to show it to my daughter (kitchen re-do). And nothing's classier than dovetails for the garbage bin...
  14. Enzo Mari - Meh

    "I can't describe it but I know it when I see it"
  15. My First Incra

    @Grandpadave52 Replace that knob with a cam locking lever and you'll like it a whole lot better...it'll speed up the operation...wear your seat belt though...
