But let the house get really cold before you discuss it...

Ok, I admit it - I was totally fooled by the title of this thread.

I made a similar mistake a few years ago and that's why I own a DVD of "Free Willy"

I don't quite know what you mean, Ray. Can you explain in detail? grin

I think fairway woods should be made out of wood. Therefore, I play with Powerbilt Citation Persimmon driver, 3 and 5 woods.

Titleist Tour Blades. I miss the Titleist Balata 90s.


I've seen Mark Johnsons's picture. He's had too much coffee.

Mike Jarvi makes a bad-ass one-piece bench.

OK, It's not necessarily wood-related, but at least it's a tool: Anyone have great ideas for uses for angle grinders?

Last time I visited my mom, she mentioned that the railing on her front porch (which she now relies on) hurts her hand because of it's heavy rust. It's embedded in the cement patio, so it's not coming out without redoing the whole thing. I figured a grinder is my best bet to get it in good shape before repainting.

This DeWalt seems highly rated.

I've never used one before and wonder how else I can make use of one to justify buying it.... Google tells me I can cut tile, remove mortar to re-point brick and sharpen my mower blade. There's gotta be more than that!

Ideas? Adrian? smile

Loc: It's all about the location.
If you're thinking about other uses for a grinder once this job is done, I'd look at the variable speed 12 amp Makita grinders, either the 9565CV 5" or the 9564CV 4 1/2"....I'd take the 5" myself. This grinder has variable speed for various types of profiling(like diamond cutter profiling and hole drilling on marble/granite counter tops) which require much lower rpm's than regular grinders have. The advantage of the 5" over the 4 1/2" too, is that there are a number of 5" contour blades on the market for cutting through granite and roughting out for an undermount sink application. A variable spd grinder will run about $140-ish but offer more versatility than a reg grinder imo...Bosch also makes a VS grinder but I much prefer Makita. Check out Toolocity if you're interested in working on countertops/stone.

Mark, have you considered renting a sandblaster to take the rust off the railing?

I felt the need to isolate that part of your post. smile

Sounds like a Hitchcock episode.
