Mike ~ Boy, those old back issues of Popular Mechanics sure bring back memories. But some of the tips have certainly been updated. I still remember the old advice about using a bar of soap to help lubricate screw threads. But a better tip would be to use an old candle stick because it won't promote rust as the bar of soap does.

Mike........this is really fun to read through. I'm sitting here listening to Bach's Italian Concerto No. 3 on a cellphone and a pickle jar. It really does work. Jim

Those were great and some still make sense today...and others...

“Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpiece… because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work. I study each piece to get ideas and details that will evolve in my future creations.
