    Changed existing 4' fixtures to ballast-free LED tubes a few years ago. Then took them with me when I sold the place; I didn't want the long tail of liability since I'm not a licensed electrician.

    Given the elapsed time, now the task is to find the final product out in the marketplace. If you're bored, and all that...

    Although OP has chosen Fein, which is a good choice, there's also the Prazi Putty Chaser. Drill powered "mill" cutter with a guide handle.

    If you can italicize the threads, I think you've got it. ;)

    To me, it kinda boils down to whether you want the info just for yourself, or if you don't mind that Google knows and logs everywhere you went last year.

    I only care about business miles, and...

    Really? And here I was thinking what you really found was an years-old thread that barely fit the spam you were shuckin'. Silly me. Perhaps the 'tool we need in this situation' is a banhammer.

    If you're really, really good with your bandsaw, you could slice (resaw) one of the other drawer fronts to produce another appropriately-figured slab, and laminate it on some lesser material for your...

    Not a player in the market in any specific stocks. But if an individual very rich investor would have/could have made the same moves as the Reddit WSB guys did, they would have done so in a...

    On my 3-ton tilt, I used 1/4" Simpson structural screws up from the bottom, thru existing frame holes. No screw holes in the top. Trailer has D-rings, E-track, and Unistrut so nothing gets tied down...

    Don't overlook Unistrut for this application. Pre-engineered in their documents (as far as the Unistrut stuff goes, not your trusses). Trolleys and mounting already worked out. All that's required...

    I used Mother's Mag wheel polish on our Mini's headlights. Worked well, and quickly. Finish up with a UV resistant clear coat.

    If they're really bad, start with the sandpaper first. 2k, 3k, etc.

    I'm getting by with a Powermatic 66 for big stuff, and a Ryobi BT-3000 on a old Home Depot fold-up/roll-around stand for location work. The Ryobi is aluminum, plastic, and borderline flimsy. But it...

    Also, don't overlook the Machu Picchu stonework. No rebar, no mortar. Large-scale and high-altitude, too.

    GE's Haliade-X wind turbines sound like "manufacturing" to me... Apparently UK-based, though. The interesting performance metric is: "one revolution of the turbine will power one house for two days"....

    Apparently oxygen is in short supply in California at the moment... both hospitals and ambulance services.

    Klein doesn't seem to biodegrade over time, neither plastic or rubber grip -- 25-30 years so far. I have a OEM briefcase toolbox full of Xcelite tools that stink to high heaven, when kept in their...

    I ran across a Cleveland Twist Drill catalog while packing for a move. Has all the code words listed as Wheels17 outlined. Fun times, for sure.
