  Installing slab doors
Posted by: garamel - 3 hours ago - Forum: Home Improvement - Replies (3)

Anyone ever done it? How much of a b!tch is it? CO wants rid of the ugly brown doors for white 6 panel. House was built in '55 so plaster walls and casing/frames are in good shape. I've done prehung before but never slab. Any pro tips?

  Electrical Woodburning On a Bowl
Posted by: crokett™ - 5 hours ago - Forum: Woodturning - Replies (5)

I've seen the videos where wood is wet with salt water and then electrodes + electricity are applied and the wood has fractal patterns burnt into it. Is there a reason this wouldn't work with a bowl? I would experiment with scrap wood worst. Im thinking put the electrodes on opposite sides of the bowl and the electricity -should- move in both directions.

  Router speed
Posted by: johndi - 9 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (3)

Putting a round over on a table edge and had a decent size blow out. Unfortunately it came off in 2 pieces and I can't glue back. I was using a Ryobi Palm router because I only had a 1/4" shank 1/2" round over bit.
This is a half round table and I only have enough room to cut the shape once more to re- do the edge.
I now have a 1/2" shank bit for my variable speed router.
My thinking was that the palm router was just running too fast causing the tear out?
Should I be slowing the router down this time?
I'm using African mahogany and the tear out was at the very front of the top where there is long grain.

I am having little problem I have purchased    Grizzly G0623X 10inch sliding table saw almost 5 months ago. It is good machine.
In the beginning it was working fine. Recently I have noticed the scoring blade is not working. the main 10 inch saw is working ok. Except the scoring blade not working at all could anybody  tell me what was wrong.
I could not find enough detailes regarding the scoring blade.

  Shower/bath "plastic" inserts – 1970s version
Posted by: varkpilot - Yesterday, 07:02 PM - Forum: Home Improvement - Replies (2)

We have one!  Need to install safety bar[s].

Decades ago, I watched one being installed and remember seeing a ½ to 1" space between the back of the insert and the 2x4 studded wall. 

Is my aging memory worse than I thought?


If there is that space in inserts of that vintage, how does one attach safety bars through the insert to the 2x4s without risking cracking the "plastic?"
