Was at HD this afternoon for some supplies. I noticed they are clearing out all their Minwax products and have them marked down to about 1/2 price. If you have some favorites, worth a trip. They are converting to Varathane and happen to have some of that marked down about 30% too, at least at for the varnish I was looking at. Here I was wearing my Varathane T-shirt.
I have been using Home Depot's ship-to-store for a few years to get things that no one stocks locally. Not sure how they make money selling me a $3.50 item and package and ship it UPS to the store for me. But they've always had a staffed register right inside the door (and special parking spots for sts). Even though I try to avoid it, Wal*mart has a similar program. I used to hate wasting time for someone to get my package. Last order, there was a giant machine in the front of the store. You enter your order number and a robot picks it up from inside the machine and brings it to the front, or for larger item, unlocks a locker just to one side. Had a trip to Lowe's today and saw some new signs on the entry door. Lo and behold, right inside the door was a staffed booth for online order pickup. The blue vest guy said if it's in the store, they'll pull it and have it sitting there in a little as 20-30 minutes. (about as long as it takes me to get there). If not, they'll ship it to you. Was in Kroger a couple of times recently. They have a huge area, maybe the size of three car garage, for order pick up (I think there's either a charge or a subscription for this.) On a recent trip, I ran across about three pickers going through the store with these orders. And a friend of my wife's does shop and deliver for Meijer (a MI-based grocery and department store) that will pull your order and drive it to your home for $5 or so. I put in an Amazon order yesterday and one of the options is an Amazon "locker" at the local Whole Foods (now a subsidiary) or several other public places. No wonder the malls are going out of business?
I was going thru HD tool section and found this. I could have used this thing many times when I was young. All you do is put it where you need it and pump it up with a common hand operated squeeze bulb. $16 on Amazon. I think you would use shims to achieve the distance you want. I don't know the total distance it moves, but with shims and blocks, I think it would be great
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
