I know BAD get's "into it" with several, but I also have learned to
appreciate his on-topic posts. I can't remember much about your on-topic
posting. Care to remind me before I make the "tank/don't tank" decision?

I will readily confess that the last few days have seen an orgy of
BAD bashing. And I will also confess to offering smartass remarks in about
a 3:1 ratio with useful advice. But I do indeed help when I have something
For sheer volume of posts, BAD has no peers. Consider the numbers,
look at the chaff:wheat proportions, and then explain why he shouldn't take
me up on the dare!
ah, Scott I either post a newbie woodworking question, offer an honest
opinion, or make my perhaps pathetic attempts to be funny. I cringe
whenever I see your name show up, as you never act decently. I will
attack back from time to time, but I don't start the mudslinging. I
might give a smart answer response from time to time, but never initiate
the mean-spirited personal attacks such as you do on a persistent basis.
Am I going to have to put you back in my filter list? I've removed
all the miscreants for the time being, but I don't have time for this OT
crap. Talk wood related issues please, or talk to yourself.

And you do all those things, all the time. Why do think you get the
"I had bananas on my cereal" and "how'd the corn come out?" responses from
others here? It's because you post responses whether you have anything to
say or not. And it's usually not.
I dared you to keep it to three posts a day, because, on the average,
that's how many posts of any real value you DO post in a day.
I grew up in New England, as has everyone on both sides of my family
for generations. We are a taciturn lot. Needless yammering sets my teeth
on edge. It is not in my nature to suffer fools gladly.
I only pick on you when you are being an asshole. If it seems like
I'm always picking on you, draw your own conclusion.
Dave. Think about it. Your fascination with the twit list one of
the things the rest of us laugh *about*. If you piss me off, I respond
primarily for the amusement of others who share my assessment of you. If
you see it and go off on a whining jag, it's that much more amusing.
I dare you again.
Two weeks, no more than three posts a day. Have you got that much
self-control? Surprise us.
I didn't read the dare, and don't intend to. It's all white noise.
I broke a drill bit today....it was a pilot bit for a drill/countersink
combo. Serves me right for not "cleaning" it as I was running the pilot hole
in the pine hutch I'm building. why does this matter? This is the first
"thing" I've built since packing up the shop almost a year and a half ago.
It's been so long, woodworking almost feel foreign...almost, but not quite.
I'm learning it's like a bike...it's all coming back to me.
I did manage to remember the first law of woodworking though...."Never build
a project for which you have all the right tools". I'm now the proud owner
of a 1/2" round over bit (I'm sure I had one, but can't find it after the
move) from Lee Valley.... SWMBO's remembering how to shake her head.
BTW...you're not tanked <g!>

I only plonked about 8 guys, and 7 of them have been unplonked.
Whenever someone uses the phrase "he's claimed to" that's tantamount to
saying that I am lying. I don't ever lie. You may disagree with me,
may not like me, but I was brought up to be totally honest and truthful.
Even Cramer is visible now...

You had to review the difference between a push rod...and a lifter?
And I've told you many times already...but you still don't listen...
Both parts of your tag line are completely untrue.
1. We DON'T always just choose from 2 people to run for President.
In modern times alone...look into the results for 1968, 1980, 1992,
2. We ALWAYS vote for more than 50 candidates for Miss America.
Anybody can post an inaccurate tag line. Only a fool keeps posting it
when he's been shown that its wrong.
Have a nice week...
Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity!

Files are hard enough to use as a burnisher. I have used the smooth
part of a rat-tailed file down by the tang. I've heard of other folks
using a belt sander to take the teeth off a file to make a burnisher.
If you try that, do not let the file get too hot. Low alloy high
carbon steel aneals around 325 F. I've also used roll pins which
aren't really hard enough but they work for the same reason that
screwdriver handles work--the stress in the thin section on the
sharp corner of the scraper is much higher than on the rounded
Damnit Dave ! That was _my_ idea
No, hang on - I put a handle on a $2 Sandvik scraper and used it
instead of a $12 wallpaper stripping knife, now I remember.

FWIW, a Sandvik (sp?) scraper is the same price or cheaper than a
_good_ putty knife. They're about $6.
I would imagine a screwdriver shaft would get chewed up in a hurry
burnishing a real scraper.
Burnishers are very smooth and very hard. I made mine out of a 3/8 x 3"
dowel pin. This is not what you might thing of as a dowel. These are used as
alignment pins in machinery. They are as hard as a file and ground to a very
high surface finish. Mount in a handle. Someplace like Grainger or Rutland
tool would have them. I even saw some at Eagle (before they became Lowes).
