Thank you all. Once upon a time I considered asking Bad Axe to make a replacement for this saw. Fortunately I never acted on it, since I knew this would turn up eventually. I’m sure it’s nothing spe...

Thanks Dave, first pass was a maroon pad with PB Blaster, 2nd pass was a maroon pad with Ballistol.  Nothing more seems to want to come off, even with a razor blade. Oh, and I was in a hurry, sorry a...

For years, I've been looking for the miter saw that goes with my Dad's Stanley miter box.  I knew I had it somewhere but I haven't been able to find it since 2004 when I cleaned out their house.  The ...

Another vote for Skrooz-on (or however it's spelled). I treated all mine with BLO, they feel great in the hand.

Post: RE: Grinders - Tell me what I need

What I've found is that I really want two grinders plus a buffer/polisher. One high-speed grinder for general repair/homeowner tasks (this is what I have now, in 6" but wish it were 8"), and an 8" sl...

When my house was built, the painter sprayed all the interior pine trim (baseboards, shoe, casings, cabinets - you name it) with plain old solvent based Minwax stain followed by satin poly, all with a...

Post: RE: Which 40v or 24v yard tools should I get?

My neighbor recently bought a 40V DeWalt string trimmer and loves it. Me, I'm an Echo man.  I think battery powered lawn tools will take over but I wouldn't want to make the investment for another co...

Oh my - I love that!  It's the perfect piece for that spot, with a perfect finish, and now that I see it in place - I think the table would be somehow less without the knot (or without the color varia...

Post: RE: I'm the worst...pics

I'd love to see the final pics.  The ones from your 10/25 post aren't displaying for me. I wouldn't have chosen a knot board for such a piece, but even without the final finish I think it looks great...

You're welcome.  When you receive them you'll see why they cost what they do.  They're the LN/LV of pill fobs.  They have larger sizes too.
