    I believe that the furniture found in the tombs in the pyramids was glued together with a type of hide or other animal parts glue. Stayed together for many a year.

    You didn't go to the trouble of pulling off the carb and then not check the diaphragms? That would be a capital offense. :lol:

    Jim, my plasma cutter is on loan to the metal fabricator down the road, and my tig I hardly ever use. It can't do aluminum, I really messed up buying one that can't do both. I could give them both to you but the shipping would be out of sight.

    I don't quite remember buying Tootsie Pops, but Pez was big. Everyone had one, so you could just say "Pez me" if you wanted a different flavor in your mouth. I see the dispensers have evolved, they don't only look like cigarette lighters anymore.

    Sounds delicate. Good if you can do glue ups with little excess. Mine tend to be messy with lots of squeeze out. Once worked in a shop that exclusively used heated up hide glue, the glue pot perpetually on the stove. Hides and hooves in there, who knows what else. Sets up almost immediately as it begins to cool, no time for dilly dallying. Stinky but you'd get used to it, and the deep brown stew even started looking a bit tasty around three o'clock. You couldn't clean anything off with water for fear of disturbing the strength, everything chipped or planed off later. A cool way of working if into tradition from the olden times.

    I almost burned my shop down. You know you can rail you own bars easy enough with a tablesaw fitted with a metal cut off wheel, so no need to go into town. :/: I use my ten inch saw, but I'm sure a cheap portable tablesaw would work, you just have to make an insert for the cut off wheel center which is probably larger than the saw arbor. Wear safety glasses. Cut off wheels are flexible, so good to epoxy a wood backing plate on one.

    I remember if you found a dime on the street you could go to the market and buy something with it. You still can here now, a small plastic bag to carry your purchased goods. :(

    Bob, of those hardwoods that you mention, I'd choose Walnut over the others. The others might well be ok, but tend to have a greater tendency to be somewhat warpy in thinner thickness if in wide dimensions as well. Quarter inch is thin, even Walnut might cup a bit unless it is tenoned into something or held in place by other means. Particularly straight grained Walnut is considered a fine wood to work, both with machinery and hand tools. Cedar is soft, and you might find the end grain crumbly if doing anything there with hand tools. White Oak is a better wood in terms of quality than Red Oak, and stability wise, if you had the option. Isn't Titebond lll the brownish waterproof one? I use it, and the other types. It's a good glue but does tend to start to set up quick. As per my earlier reply, any of the types of Titebond should clean up and not interfere with a finish applied after. Just be sure to get all of the excess off with hot water and do a little sanding after the water and glue dries. Over large areas a nylon brush works good to clean off if the glue has started to set up in the midst of things, or a hard bristled toothbrush in fine areas. You can get what is called "creep", where even when the glue is technically dry it can still press out of a joint and give a slightly raised portion glue line. A tight joint will help prevent that and adequate drying before sanding and applying a finish.

    woodworkingboy replied to a thread Who Vapes? in The Rec Room
    MB, I see that vapes are offered at the Japan auction site, so people are buying them for something. Is there a use for them besides for with weed, as weed is highly illegal. Not worth the risk of getting busted, though there are people that are willing. I have friends and such and once there was an American guy I know.....:) Too risky for the sake of family. :/:

    You mentioned that the oiler hole isn't clogged in the bar, so I guess it can be assumed that the bar groove is cleaed out too. If the saw sits idling and there is a hole mismatch, it wouldn't be surprising to see oil dripping out and pooling up on the ground beneath the saw, unless the bar is completely sealing off the exit oil hole in the engine.

    Here, I regularly see engines kept running while people are shopping or at the post office. God forbid someone should have to get into a somewhat cooled off or heated up car after their chores. Some neighbors must have their car engines running for twenty minutes in the winter before going to work, the same ones that drive a half block to dispose a bag of trash at the station that almost everyone else walks to with their refuse in defined sized bags that can seldom be too heavy to carry. It gets me, the people that won't lift a finger to minutely help preserve what is an immensely valuable common need for all. Dense beyond the ability to understand. :(
