  1. I just grab a beer and keep on keepin on. I endeavor to persevere
  2. Got that grizzly 4 wheel cart they were offering on sale. The sheet metal is so thin that it came with all manner of dings and pointed object dents. Looking at it too hard will dent it. They shorted me 5 bolts. I tossed much of the hardware because it is junk. The washers are inadequate the washers get lost inside the slots making assembly dicey. The lock washers are all junk. They could have made assembly way easier with a few welded on tabs. Instead one gets three layers and 48 finger tight bolts to get the thing squared up. Assembled with all the bolts tightened it is wobbly because the sheet metal is so thin, nearly foil thin. They couldn’t even get their logo labels on straight It’s supposed to take 300 pounds. We will see. Well It was on sale and it is grizzly so one can’t expect much..
  3. The stuff has interesting and powerful sound dampening qualities. I lost my phone. Shaddup~!! stop lafin I was in a drawer of a cheap desk made of mdf. The volume was set to max but while right on top of it I could not hear any more than a faint sound. The applications for this dampening characteristic are wide open

    Does The World Really Need This?

    once you use some of these apps that let you reach out past your phone to accomplish things in the rest of the world you find out how much you actually enjoy it. Of course most of the things you listed are things that historically required enormous investment in infrastructure. New locks new switches net thermostats. But fear not. Sooner rather than later these will all be standard issue in the new products because consumer demand is there. I want my phone to be able to connect with my computer when I'm away and see all the security events that my security system detects. I'd like to be able to see who is in my home and whether they are armed so when I call the cops I can tell 'em no residents are in the home and all the robbers are armed - - even give the cops access to my cameras. - - That sort of thing. I'd like to know if I have a flood. I'd like to know if there is a package. I could call some one to grab it off the porch for me.

    Question About Woodsmith 'Tip'

    You called it. nonsense
  11. the stinkin bolts are marked Grade 8. However I can strip em easy with a hand held screwdriver type nut driver. They are typical of the Grizz; Butter bolts masquerading as real hardware. Every once in a while I give one of these companies a chance like the Griz or Horrible Fright and every single time I vow not to do it again.

    Vintage 9 Inch South Bend Lathe

    That lathe was maintained in pristine condition. It still has the frosting on the ways from the scraping. I've never seen one of that vintage in such grand condition. IT's almost factory floor new. So it's a fabulous machine age not withstanding. be sure you understand the lubrication requirements. Often they were "Oil Daily" And be sure use the correct weight oil. I'm guessing that rig is from the 1940s. You can date it with the serial number I bet the vintage machinery site has a resource for that.

    If You Happen To Be 70 or 80 and Been

    I honesty can't recall the time I went to a grocery store and bought sockets or drills, It'd be nice if they'd start inventorying them though. I use extra length drills with annoying frequency. been collecting 'em all my adult life.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
