  1. Christmas Presents

    I see your putting the new miter jig to use. Really, really, nice Herb. I always look forward to this time of year when you post the pictures of the X-mas presents. You have some really lucky club members.
  2. Recent Rust Revivals

    This coming from you...who doesn't like to finish...we've had this discussion. I don't do pottery...home made pottery is really crappy in my opinion.
  3. Lifes Simple Pleasures

    They certainly are. I made a big batch of oatmeal raisin yesterday. Now, think of it this way; oatmeal is roughage and helps to lower Cholesterol (http://www.care2.com/greenliving/oatmeal-everyday-powerfood.html), raisins are a great source of iron (https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/fruit/health-benefits-of-raisins.html), cinnamon is great for revving up the metabolism (http://www.organicauthority.com/health/11-health-benefits-of-cinnamon.html). Now tell me how my cookies aren't good for you!

    Firefox Tools- Options- Privacy & Security- Permissions- Block Pop-ups- Exceptions- add the website address (www.xxx.xxx) to the exceptions list. This should allow you access to your excepted accounts without a problem. It will allow the pop-ups that you need through without a problem
  5. Recent Rust Revivals

    I wish there was a market! I have a bunch, also.
  6. Push Drill Delirious

    Outstanding! I have one similar that was my fathers. I don't use it, however, because of the bits. I see from the photos that yours, also, uses Goodell-Pratt bits. I have two or three that are missing from mine, and finding replacements are near impossible. If you can find them they are stupidly expensive. It's great that you saved this great tool.
  7. Paid it forward

    Guess that is indicative of the overall quality. No matter how much pressure you placed on those connector bolts, they shouldn't have broken. I couldn't find any technical info on the tensile strength of these types of fasteners, but I can't feature putting enough pressure, either in tension or shear, to break these types of bolts.
  8. New Release of Mozilla Firefox

    Good for you! I told you that 57.0 was a screamer...I have not had one issue, yet. The only thing I don't like is they is the home button moved to the left side of the toolbar.
  9. please help identify old brass mallet

    Perhaps this will help... Non-marring mallets AND hammers. http://www.garlandmfg.com/mallets/split.html I have one with rawhide faces, which I never use. However, I have seen several different faces that can be used in this type of head: rubber, lead, brass, plastic...
  10. A different whatzit

    Guess I'm just a tad late to the party. Yes, they are used to sharpen razors. Generally, they are used with straight razors even though the graphic above shows a double edge being sharpened. I have a couple in my collection. I'm always on the lookout for these, mugs, brushes, stoops, and of course straight razors.
  11. elec' car 1 minute charge 500 mile range?

    Eloquently, said. Bottom line, no matter how much energy you put in, the resulting product will always be less and the difference between the input and the output will be given off as heat.
  12. Finally broke down and ordered

    Genuine "white trash" cooking...ummm, ummm, GOOD! I'd kill for a big ole plate of Crowder peas over rice and some cornbread, and maybe some collards to go with it.
  13. Copy & Paste

    John, it may have updated automatically, depending on you upgrade preferences. if you are running 57.0 (Quantum) you have the latest version.
  14. Copy & Paste

    I noticed this after the FF update a couple of days ago. So, the problem in not with the TPW software. FF just did a major code rewrite so there may be some bugs that they need to wring out. Annoying, but not earth shattering. I'm sure that FF will work out the glitches soon. On that note. The update promised everything would be faster and allow for smoother scrolling. They delivered...sort of...but there are some quirks that need worked out. When I scroll from the one end of a TPW post to the other end, I notice that not all of the content remains intact as the screen flies up or down. Once you get there all of the content is refreshed and intact, immediately. The refresh rate is impressive and makes the links (threads, posts, links, and pages) open up much faster when you click on them. Added: It appears, that, if a post has a graphic in it, then the graphic can't load fast enough during the scrolling up or down. What I am seeing is the post not loading because of the attachment. The post box itself doesn't load and I am seeing the background showing through the space occupied by the post box, between the other post boxes above and below. Once you stop scrolling, boom, everything is there. Apparently, it is moving so quick the graphics can't load fast enough to display.
  15. Suddenly went incognito

    Update: All appears to be running OK. I logged out, closed the browser (FF) and then reopened and logged in. My personal setting remained intact. CCleaner automatically cleans FF when it is closed. So, dumping caches, cookies, etc is not presently affecting the TPW settings. We'll see if the settings hold tomorrow morning when I open everything back up.
  16. Finally broke down and ordered

    Naw, that's just for the tourists in the French Quarter and the TV shows and movies.
  17. Finally broke down and ordered

    That's what the Tabasco Habanero sauce is for, bubba! Throw out the bell peppers, that's an insult to the "holy trinity" of Cajun cooking. I know some funny talking folks in "da bayou" that would loose you in the swamp for that sacrilege.
  18. With all of the shooting tragedies that have been occurring, I went looking for some factual statistics to get an overall picture of what is really going on. I hate to relying on the news media to "cherry pick" the information to feed me. Knowing that Chicago has a notorious shooting problem I did a search for some actual statistics for that fine city. I came across this site, which appears to be pretty accurate and claims to draw its statistics directly from local Chicago sources. It is really interesting, that, NOBODY discusses the elephant in the room on the national news. The Las Vegas and Texas church shootings are real tragedies, in addition, the latest shootings in California, also. However, take a look at the website and gain some real perspective on just what a paradise Chicago is compared to those horrors. I guarantee if you take the time to actually look at the facts on the page it will; open your eyes, make you laugh, and make you cry at the same time. My favorites are: "Shot-In-The-arse-O-Meter", and the "Shot-In-The-Junk-O-Meter". I, know, I'm a sick puppy...but then I do drink my coffee black! Anyway, enjoy the facts. http://heyjackass.com/
  19. Thinking About Moving to Chicago...

    Nobody I know drinks out of clear bottles...if they do, I don't visit much.
  20. elec' car 1 minute charge 500 mile range?

    Interesting article! The comments at the end of the article even more so. I am not an EE but I have to agree with some of the comments. In order to charge in 1 minute the equipment cost would be phenomenal and impractical at this point. Then there is the cost of the electricity to supply the charge. Power isn't free, but as "damaging" as fossil fuels are they are still the most cost effective means.
  21. Thinking About Moving to Chicago...

    Nope! Not me. I never drink ANY beer that comes in a clear bottle. Besides, if it was me in the picture, I would NEVER be carrying a full, unopened bottle. I don't believe in..."In case of emergency, break glass".
  22. HEY PEOPLE!!!! V.2

    Welcome, Josie. Are you sure about this? There is an initiation fee; doughnuts, and for me, pie and ice cream. Anyway, join the fun, ask questions, give answers, and don't cut any of us any slack. Oh, and we ALL love pictures. "the story is no good without pictures". You'll like it here and, again, welcome. Bill
