    Interval measurements

    Try one of these...they come in handy...but shop around. They can be had for as little as $15. https://www.woodcraft.com/products/m-power-point-2-point-mk2?via=573621f469702d06760016cd%2C57641bc769702d65930008ce%2C57641beb69702d6593000948

    Rattle Can Disposal

    Under federal EPA laws, yes, but then, again, you live in another country. I would hesitate to speculate on what your state/local crazies require. Generally, the latex/water based products have to be dried/solid before disposal. Some localities will allow water based/soluble products to be dumped down the drain or in some cases, diluted and dumped on the ground (not recommended in my opinion). Under federal requirements oil based products are handled differently. They have to be "empty" containers that have fully cured product residual. If there is uncured product it has to be handled as "hazardous waste" and processed by an approved collection location.

    ...are you sure they aren't Mosquito Hawks? They look like overgrown mosquitoes and are basically the raptors of the mosquito world, while mosquitoes are the bunny rabbits.

    ...art for arts sake...nothing more...the subject matter, should NOT make a difference. Only the beauty of the finished product. I shouldn't have the right to complain if you carved a cat, just because I may not like cats. I believe most or all of us would not be offended by this type of subject matter. What is most important is the passion and talent that the artist displays in the finished product. Beautiful display of your talent, Nick. Especially, as your first attempt.

    Keeping the air conditioning drain line open

    ?????????????????? I've never had lint build up in my AC drain lines, either the primaries or the secondaries. Usually, any blockages are the result of algae build-up or critters building nests inside of the lines. I have always been told (and it has always worked) to just dump a cup of plain white vinegar down the line(s) once a month. The acidic acid will kill and flush away any algae and loosen up most blockages. If you do have a stubborn blockage it is better to use a low pressure air stream to blow the blockage out of the lines.

    Now, I'm confused. you mean that I'm continuously confused? If that's my normal state, then becoming un-confused will just confuse me more. You think I'm bad, now, imagine what I would be like in an un-confused state.

    Sometimes, also, referred to as, Schnooge. Looking in the mirror did absolutely no good, it just tended to confuse me...and, as Stick will probably tell you, I'm easily confused!

    Simple Lock Box?

    There were times I felt like it...one thing you never wanted was for your boat to break down and get stuck in the marsh overnight! Every gnat within 20 miles came for the buffet. The mosquitoes in LA aren't just big, they wear old time leather flying helmets, fly up to the door, knock, and then let themselves in...

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.
