Yonatan24 We were at some type of industrial area today (car repairs) & I was looking around a nearby dumpster... AND THERE WERE 2cm/1" thick PLEXIGLASS "SCRAPS"! What would you make with plexiglass this thick?


Andrew Jacobsen Two part question on strops - 1) How often do you need to recharge it? I notice that after my first couple of passes, it will be "streaked" and hardened/glossy.

Andrew Jacobsen 2) I can run my finger across the strop and it will have "ridges," is this okay or does it need to be flat like a stone needs to be?

Joke of the week

A chainsaw and a circular saw are sitting on the couch.  The chainsaw says to the handsaw “I said, I love you, Kim”.  To which she replies “And I heard you”.

Humiliated, Troy vowed his next relationship would be with a reciprocating saw.
