  2. My remote vac switches stopped working. I can use it for up to 5 devices, but only use on 2 saws. I removed the remotes and checked the small 12 volt batteries. Both checked fine, even tho they are years old. Next I attempted to remove the back of the receiving unit at the 110 vac receptacle. It had the weirdest screws holding the back on. They were like phillips screws, but had only 3 branches instead of 4. I did get them off and replaced with standard screws. When I put all back in place......it worked fine. May never know why it quit. There were no batteries in the receiving unit, it
  3. Okay I'm running into a couple minor problems. I basically ruined a piece playing with the new jaws but that's okay. I was prepared for that. A new piece is being glued up and getting ready to be worked hopefully for later this evening. How ever I'm running into a slight bit of a problem and am in need of some advice. I've been using short screws with the face place in order to make sure it says tight. That worked for a bit now I'm finding that sometimes the screws are actually getting broken off in the face plate which is not a good thing. meaning the heads snapped off. Probably due t
  4. Spent most of the day "screwing around." #8 x 2.75" w/ #2 Robertson needing countersink, #6 x 5/8 w/ #2 Squipps, #1 Squipps, or #1 Robertson, #6 x 1.25" w/ #2 Robertson. Full extension 12" & 14" side glides with 1/2" extra clearance on hinge side, 3.5" from top, 2.75" from bottom, with width +0 to -1/16". 1/2" dovetails 2" on center, 3/4" dovetails 3" on center. Cup hinges, face frame, 3/8" overlay, self closing, w/ one set of four 35mm holes, 22.5 mm from edge 16" on center, 4" from ends, the other 35mm holes, 22.5 mm from edge set so side glides did not hit on the way out and miss face f
  5. Another Mike Peace Tip-
  6. Maybe getting old , maybe tired , maybe it just is not that important. Oh you say what am I referring to. One I used wood and find jointery to make shop cabinets and fixtures. Having accumulated a fair amount of counter tops and divider panels from drugstores (MDF and particle board) it is time to use it. Started some cabinets with all screws, not much that could be glued. Various colors and even some covered in Formica. So you be the judge......,.lazy, tired, thrifty, or just don’t care. more later as this is the best materials I had.
  7. I plan to install 1/4" sheet rock over a wall of wood paneling. About 7 panels of sheet rock. Is there an attachment available to use with my drill driver to drive and set the screws to the proper depth? If so, what is the attachment called ? With 1/4" sheetrock I'm concerned about driving the screws too deep.I'm guessing that thin sheets will be a bit fragile. I know this will require a bit of framing modifications around windows and the entrance door. This will be a better aesthetic choice than painting the paneling.
  8. I've been trying to orgranize my fastener collections. I found that 12 oz juice containers really work well, roughly accommodating a box of screws (100 or so, I think). Anyway, when the dust settled I found myself the proud puzzled possessor of 6 bottles of fine thread DW screws, 1" through 2.5". What would these be for? Maple studs? I don't unnderstan. Looks nice tho.
  9. Went and bought the latch today. And even some holders. The holders had bolts,, need to go and buy some screws for them. About like the "tabs" you turn to replace a screen in the screen door. Will adapt them.. So, I got out that little No.6 eggbeater, and drilled some pilot holes. Had to use the smallest #1 Phillips screwdriver I had handy to drive four screws... I think this will just have to do. i did try to get a better picture of that lid. Camera kept trying to say it is yellow.....adjusted photo to show it more like what it really is in colour.
  10. So far, so good (Shhhhh!) so, without much further ado Toys I though would be needed...after all, I did clean the bench off Well, close enough for today...got the parts out of hiding.. Yep, that scrap of pine was stuck to the glued up stuff. Wide chisel to pop it off. This thing had a problem...needed one more leg....Did NOT feel like going through all of THAT again. Made the fourth leg to sit on the surface, with some glue, and a couple screws....and use it as a back leg A steel plate for a keeper. Used to be a junky saw plate. Grinder and
  11. That to thr GrandBRATS being here and wanting to go places.....work on the Cherry Box has ground to a halt...almost. Needed to give the brain a rest for a day or two, anyway.... Jig? Well, I needed a way to plough a groove into the frame's skinny and thin parts. Hard to hold onto them AND the Stanley #45......router table? Nah, I'd have to dig it out, set it up and listen to it scream....not. Laid down a scrap of pine. Two screws, countersunk to fix it in place on the bench. Some small brads to add a couple little piece to make a square corner. Used one
