A bit old school for the pros but whatever floats your boat. A9 (in the green can) is the best lube for threading aluminum. Lube won't help with getting the thread started, though...

What alloy? 6063 or 6061? The latter is harder and threads easier. If any of the pipe needs to be bent then it would have to be 6063 which is going to be softer and, in the case of machining or...

Years ago we built a small trailer for a customer. He wanted it quite short so it would fit in a storage space he had. He was going to tow it with a good sized pickup and I told him it would be a...

If you're working with steel there's no point in using anything finer than 36 grit. That's what I use 99 per cent of the time. Once in a while if I've got something extra heavy to sand I'll throw...

You're missing the point. A breaker is installed in a box to protect a circuit of a given capacity. The wires and plugs in a 30 amp circuit will be sized for 30 amps, no more. You cannot instantly...

I'm not clear on what you're calling the "table". Isn't it the main frame of the saw? If that's the case you've only got half a saw. A new factory part will have all the slots and holes required...
