Sorry to hear that. Steel-toe boot are a must when running a saw, as are saw chaps and eye protection. Nothing like getting chips in your eyes just as you've made the final cut on a tree and you need

I have two Dremels- a cordless and a fixed-speed flex-shaft one. The cordless doesn't turn all that fast for a Dremel so it doesn't work as fast. Sometimes thats good, sometimes not. The battery last

One way to make that safer is to have the fan blow into the booth rather than sucking out of the booth. You need to carefully duct the air however to prevent stirring up paint dust. -- Eric Murray Ch

I did something like that for painting motorcycles, I used plastic sheeting. It's ok, probably better than painting/sandblasting outside. Mine was semi-permanant. Paint 'dust' (hardened overspray) an

I've done sandblasting (motorcycle frames) with a 10gal 2hp 4.8CFM unit. It wasn't happy about it, and it didn't give me as much pressure as something bigger. But it worked. Just be careful when buyi

Use a Dremel tool with a cut-off wheel to cut a slot in the top and then use an impact wrench (not an air wrench, this is the kind you hammer on) with a straight bit in it to loosen it. Centerpunchin

Easy-outs are made from very hard and brittle steel. Even a little sideways pressure on the smaller ones and they'll snap. You can (if you're lucky) grind out a broken easy-out with tungsten-carbide

I have no comment on the SP (other than that I own an SP85 and like it). I'd suggest getting a smaller bottle of gas and a smaller roll of wire. You won't go through them that fast and you might want

Anything cheap. Stihl. You want a saw with an intertial and lever-activated chain brake. Don't get one with a solid unmovable guard in front of the front handle. That gets in the way and doesn't work

That's a really good idea. I do it on my two-stroke trials motorcycles by turning off the fuel petcock and letting the bike run the carb dry. It works pretty well for keeping the carb from gumming up

There's quite a bit of residual oil in the cases. A single cylinder engine will run as long as there's gas in the carb. A trials motorcycle will idle for about two minutes on a bowl full of gas. Of
