Many folks in the Rolls-Royce Owners Club swear by Leatherique. I've used it in my Bentley and it's great. They advertise in Hemmings, I think. --berry

This is probably why my 110 volt compressor fires up fine when the tank is empty but blows the circuit breaker every time it cycles after that. Yeah, yeah, I need to run a 220 line to my garage. Unti

I learned something about lifts the other day when George Colgett put my T-Bentley on a lift in his Hayward shop to help me find a noise in the rear. I saw a little wire running the length of the lif

Sure. If you want to have a leak-down tester, just buy one. If you dig making things, go ahead. It's like Aircraft Spruce's purpose in life: Homebuilt aircraft. They all say if you want to fly a pla

You could probably go a long way with a couple of 4x4s, a solid core door (flat, not panelled) and a sheet of Masonite for a smooth renewable surface.

A couple of months ago Fine Woodworking did a comparison of medium size planers, wrote to various "manufacturers" and got something like 13 planers shipped in, of which eleven or so were NEARLY IDENT

Maybe I'm missing something, but why not put the car on 3" (or taller) blocks and just let the water seep in and out? Me, I had to sandbag the garage to keep the Palo Alto floods off my Bentley...

Am I completely wrong in thinking that the 66 Pontiac GTO has no frame? I thought it was a unibody design.

An aircraft mechanic working on my plane once told me that if you need more torque than a 1/4 inch socket can deliver something is wrong...he used 1/4 drive sockets almost exclusively. Of course, muc

I'm a bit surprised that people need impact sockets for air ratchets. Aren't ordinary sockets OK? Impact sockets for impact wrenches, sure, but for a plain air driven ratchet aren't ordinary sockets

One thing you can do is cut away part of the molding *behind* the coped cut, making the coped end of the moding "sharp". That way, if the cut is a bit off when you try to fit it, it's simple to adjus
