Of the reviews I’ve read online on the Makita, the most common complaint seems to have to do with the track. I know woodman_412 had some issues with his also. Would it make a difference where one buys one of these?
Yeah I did have issues with the tracks not being straight and flat Brian. I d…

That looks more like a go-kart than lawn mower. The kids would love it.
I wonder how large hills would effect the run time. My yard slopes up pretty steep in front then down in the back.
It would be nice to not have to keep gas on…[Read more]
I picked up the Makita last month and I have been very impressed with it. The cut quality is excellent even cross cutting BC plywood that would have terrible chip out with my circular saw.
As much as I wanted to go with Festool, I just could not justify the extra expense.
I bought an extra 55″ rail and connectors with the saw but I am already…[Read more]
I just bought one for myself based on reviews from this thread. I also picked up a second 55″ track and the connector kits. I can’t wait to try it out.
Thank you all for the compliments.
I didn’t purchase the plans, I just watched the Youtube series and came up with my dimensions.
My thoughts for use will be as a general purpose workbench, assembly bench, and outfeed table for my DeWalt 745 table saw. I am really bad about letting my tools clutter up my workbench, hopefully this bench top will…[Read more]
I started on my “Paulk Compact” inspired bench yesterday.
Materials: 2 sheets 15/32″ BC plywood, glue, and staples
I still need to cut the 3/4″ holes in the top and make the horses. Using standard saw horses puts the top too high for me.
Cost so far is ~$40 in materials and 2 hrs of my time.

I used a Graco/Earlex HVLP sprayer to paint my cabinets.
The final results were great. I used Sherwin Williams Pro Classic paint. It dried very flat and smooth.
The major points of frustration:
I was working on a large project, a full set of new unfinished kitchen cabinets, while spraying the paint would begin to dry up and clog the needle.…[Read more]
I love my Red Wings. Very painful the first few wears, but after they are broken in, they are very comfortable.
You got that right Bill. Some of these new phones are huge. I just don’t see needing anything like them myself.
You need a big pocket for sure. I see some guys carrying a man bag no way for me.
You just need a pair of the Jnco jeans from the 90’s with the huge rear pockets.

I do this too. It’s so easy to clean up.

The Hobart 190 looks like an excellent choice if you have 220 available. The price at Tractor Supply is…[Read more]
What are you wanting to use them for?
I have not heard of either of the two brands you linked to, but they both appear to be similar to my mig. The price of the Avenger 140i is pretty close to the Lincoln 140c.
I am in no way a pro welder. I just have a few around for my car projects and farm equipment repairs.
I have the Mig 135 from…[Read more]

I barely made it back home. It ran fine until it got warm. The temp never went over 190 but it acted like it was starving for fuel. Checked the fuel filter and that was good. could a fuel pump act…

Great looking cabin. I would love to have one someday.
Here’s my project. It’s a 1968 Porsche 912 Targa. It’s the same body as the 911, but got the 4 cylinder engine from the old 356.
It needs quite a bit of sheet metal work done to underside to repair rusted floor and suspension pan.
It’s looking really nice. Its going to be a great place.
Congrats on the house and shop space. Hope you can make something work for you with the second hand cabinets.
Being that I am from Ohio, I didn’t realize there was real estate that affordable anywhere in California. It looks like a nice wooded lot. The price is inline with my area.
