Epoxy takes a while (imgur.com)

I’m almost wrapped up with filling voids, bark inclusions, and knot holes in the boards for the bookcase. If our garage was climate controlled I expect this process would have gone faster; the same could be said if I had more horizontal working space for staging and filling. Once everything is done curing I should be able to...

Parts Washer: What solvent are you using?

I’ve got one of those big red 20-gallon parts washers. You know the one. I mostly clean bicyle parts, and most bicycle lubricants are not petroleum-based. They’re usually plant or wax-based. The idea is that a water-based degreaser, like Simple Green, should have no problem cleaning the stuff. My experience is that Simple...

Older houses are fun to renovate update 1 (imgur.com)

Kind of a busy week otherwise but progress is progress. I put comments on each image in the album to explain reasoning, goals, and steps taken - if you haven’t done much carpentry I hope they help; if you have done much carpentry I hope you’ll share your expertise. I’ve been around a bit and done a few things but this is...

I read somewhere online that you could use corn starch for this, mixed with water. Would it work? Do you have better ideas?

XLR Splitter Impedance Matching - Worth It?

Hi all. I’m splitting 2 XLR line level audio signals into 3 channels each. I bought one nice device (used) online called the Whirlwind SPL1x3LL (line level). Unfortunately I can’t find another used one for a decent price. However there are plenty of mic impedance matched units, SPL1x3MIC which according to the manufacturer...

Fished new wire for the first time!

I posted on here the other day about some suspicious 240v cable and followed the recommendations to replace it. I was already leaning that way but was kind of hoping to be told I was overthinking it. But you all confirmed what I thought. I ran close to 25’ of 10/2 cable from the second story to the basement. Nothing is wired...
