    This may very well be in the wrong forum and, if so, I apologize in advance. But … for those, like me, who foolishly still hold some sort of loyalty to the Craftsman brand, I have managed to track down a fairly strong supply of USA-made Craftsman hand tools at a local Sears Outlet. I'm still in...

    I have a problem on my hands and reputation. I'm a young, novice and self taught carpenter. As a casual paramedic I fill in the time and make money by building and selling furniture I make. I primarily build out of salvaged materials I find floating in the river near by, which is an old...

    I have a grizzly 37'' dual drum sander coming in. I have read so many things about dust collection systems for them. I learned that canister filters are not to good for drum sanders because the fine dust clogs up the filters. I also do not think I need a cyclone because I will be using the dust...
