  Moving. Wanting to sell hand tools in Connecticut
Posted by: jonas b - 42 minutes ago - Forum: Tool Swap N' Sell - No Replies

So I'm moving and my workshop is getting downsized. I must sell many of my tools, but I can't ship, unfortunately. If anyone wants to visit me in New Haven Connecticut I am selling much of my stuff. I have lots of saws that need to be cleaned up, no panther heads or No. 12's even, but lots of nice disstons, etc. $10 to $15 a piece, Planes, plane parts, plane blades, lots of square shank brace bits, from 2 inches down to tiny, odds and ends. Lion mitre trimmer for $30 (missing handle) I'm moving promptly on Sunday, and I'm feeling ready to downsize to what will fit in my tool chest. Also I have some 5 or 6 foot long old steel clamps. Pm me and I'll give you my number

  Turning a preist
Posted by: whatline - 1 hour ago - Forum: Woodturning - No Replies

Saw a blurb in an old issue of trout unlimited talking about a preist. Had to look it up. Apparently fly fisherman use a priest not a club like everyone else.
Turned 1 from cucumber wood. Took about an hour to drill and turn. Plan on filling with lead and gluing plug in by weekend.
Fun little project. The wood was pretty sweet to work with. Had zero clue before the upgrade so don't think they'll be any pics.

i gave descriptions on how to change it the other day and now it's gone.  Assume software change.  Were people being like Fred before he became kinder and gentler? Big Grin

  Insulation of Pole Building
Posted by: sroxberg - 1 hour ago - Forum: Home Improvement - No Replies

I am looking for some rolls of 6" R-19 Fiberglass insulation with a thermal barrier on one side. Menards has some called ProTherm but it is only in a 6' width and I'd like it in 7' widths so that I can hang a single piece.

Any ideas on where to get this? I want it to hang between the poles and fill the void before sheeting the inside.

Photo Wiring question (not tool related).
Posted by: Tony (Charleston, WV) - 3 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking Hand Tools - Replies (1)

Moderator--sorry if this post should be in another forum.  I do most of my lurking here and am most comfortable with the folks who hang out here as well.  (Move if ye must.)

Folks:

I need some advice to get the wiring to the dishwasher I just installed figured out.   My apologies for the horrible drawing (obviously not to scale).  I was the art class joke in high school.  I've also attached pictures that might be useful.  

Oops--The drawing shows up in the post box--twice--but not in the preview box.  If it doesn't show when I post the thread, I'll try to add it when I can figure out what's going on.

Left to right in the drawing, are 1) dishwasher, junction box, disposal, and switches that control a light over the sink and the disposal.  Four 12/2 (with ground) enter the box as shown. Left goes to the DW, top goes to the disposal, the two on the right go to the light and disposal switches.  An outlet in the box with the switches is fed from a separate 12/2.  Each of the switches and outlet are wired separately--one 12/2 goes to each--black, white and ground.  Nothing ties together.

In the box all the blacks are together, whites together, grounds together and fastened to the grounding thing.  All connections are tight and not in contact with anything they shouldn't be touching.  (I noticed the ring and piece of bare ground in the box after I posted the picture and tossed them.)

Here's what I think happened.  When replacing the 12/2 from the old dishwasher (thought it would be prudent to do that), I tagged each strand separately, but the writing on 2 or 3 got so smudged that I couldn't read them.  I think that at least 2 if not 3 of the blacks were tied together with one of the whites.  If that's right, I don't want to guess which white goes with the blacks.

When I flip the breaker, it trips, sometimes after the disposal comes on for a second.  The disposal switch works backwards this way--off is up, on is down.

Some assistance would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Tony

Does anyone know how to edit an existing post?  The pictures I posted showed up fine yesterday, when I did the post, but today they're gone!

Thanks.

  HT18 Bar Rail
Posted by: jello1979 - 3 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (1)

Hi All,
New member here. I got a great deal on some HT18 bar rail, but could use some pointers on how to install. The other profiles available have more "meat" to land screws. How would you approach attaching to the deck & substrate?
Thank you for your time!

  Avatars, a discussion
Posted by: barnowl - 4 hours ago - Forum: Software Update Complete - Replies (5)

Time was that my avatar was hosted at Photobuckets, but stopped working with the new software.

Tried posting it in the URL option, but it wouldn't take because it was an http, and not an https (secure).

So, I found the simplest way was to save a pic in my files, and link to that in the first option, "Upload Avatar".

I'm guessing that if I were to move the pic elsewhere, it might break the link, but I don't know that to be a fact.

In any event, I put it where I'm not likely to move it.

Hope that helps.
