re: Cypress Tree Removal - ISO Woodworker - Jon A thon
[quote]wait, are you saying there is no value in a mature harvested cypress tree[/quote] There is, but there's a lot of work to make it usable. I have a friend with a ton of it drying right now. Takes up a ton of space at his house and it's been well over a year that he's had it. Sweet deal wh...

re: tOfficial Cycling Thread - Jon A thon
[quote]No reason it can’t be a good road bike for you unless it’s really heavy. I’d peruse Craigslist’s for a road bike, every now and then something decent turns up.[/quote] I'm surprised a gravel bike has a 52 ring on the front. Honestly if you are going to do anything with the bike to make it...

re: Going Bald or Greying - Fight it or do so with dignity? - Jon A thon

re: Number of outlets on 220V 30A breaker. - Jon A thon
[quote]This is the reason it’s against code to do what you are trying to[/quote] Understood, but I have many 110V outlets on the same 15A circuit that can add to significantly more that 15A if all used. I realize it's different for 220V, especially since most appliances are large. But that's no...

re: Number of outlets on 220V 30A breaker. - Jon A thon
Main and sub panel are on the other side of the house. Would have about a 200'+ run fished through the attic. All garage lines are in EMT, so I can just temporarily do it, then pull down the branched outlet later. ...

Number of outlets on 220V 30A breaker. - Jon A thon
Last summer I had a subpanel put in for my garage and included a 220V/30A circuit, but only put in one outlet for my table saw. Since then, I've gotten a jointer and bandsaw that also run on 220V. I currently have a small extension cord I use to run those machines, but I'm having to plug everythin...

re: Smart trainers for cycling: anyone here use one? - Jon A thon
[quote]BTW I would recommend wheel off smart trainer[/quote] I personally wouldn't waste the money on a smart trainer unless it was direct drive ("wheel off"). I don't really ride anymore, but I had a Tacx wheel on smart trainer. When it worked, it was nice. But I always had connectivity issue...

re: Garage Door Insulation - Jon A thon
Previous owners installed one of the kits with little brackets that hold standard fi burglars insulation made for garage doors. All the brackets are failing and the insulation often starts hanging off and has to be rigged in place. Our garage stays cool though and it's not air conditioned (just sur...

what to do while healing from bulging disc? - Jon A thon
I used to be very active in endurance running all the time and competing in triathlons. About 2.5 years ago I took a break from that due to little nagging injuries and then really got out of shape over 2020. I started up with crossfit in February and have really enjoyed it. I've had lower back pa...

re: A point about socialism v capitalism that isn’t made nearly enough by capitalists - Jon A thon
[quote]Under a capitalist system, anyone or any group that wishes to practice socialism can do so. Communes, co-op businesses, 100% profit sharing enterprises can all be created by voluntary associations of people who are disgusted with the notion of profit.[/quote] This isn't exactly true. They...

re: The 2021 Garden Thread - Jon A thon
It's my first year doing any sort of garden. Very inexperienced, but as with most stuff I do, I'm diving in deep. Been following this thread. Got started very late this year, so not expecting much except to learn for the fall and next year. Plan to build some raised beds over the summer and star...

Depends on the school. My son took BJJ at a place that was awesome for kids. Wasn't too intense. Let them have fun while learning basics. We moved to the other side of town and it was just too far of a drive at the time they held the kids class. We went somewhere closer and they although they t...

re: painting kitchen cabinets - Jon A thon
Water popping to knock down the fibers works, but if you do light sanding between coats anyway, there's no real reason to specifically address it. I took advice from here and used shellac based, white pigmented primer. To shoot in HVLP I thinned with denatured alcohol and a little floetrol until i...

It's been a while due to covid, then getting fat and not fitting in my nicer dress clothes and offices going more casual while we "partially return". I wash my shirts by themselves on a gentle cycle. Hang dry and have a Rowenta steam iron that will get out any wrinkle. They seem to last that ...
