Default Handyman Corner, belt sander

This guy is quite a handyman.

Red Green has demonstrated the bizarre behavior of belt sanders. That's not an exageration. It takes lots of practice to get the doggone things to behave. I hate my belt sander. There, I've said it. A civilized belt sander would be fixed on a tool where you could bring the wood to it, not some over torqued, wild west bucking bronk of a tool. Sometimes I've wanted to shoot the darn thing, but instead it sits, unused, in its corral, waiting to die for want of sawdust. Good riddance, I say. Instead, saddle up the ROS. Not that I have strong feelings about this.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Red Green was one of my favorite shows. This may have been my favorite Handyman's Corner:

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

This guy had a weekly television show quite a few years ago. He is funny for sure but put a bad image to the USA thinking that Canadians were all like him. He has many videos on You Tube if you laughed with this one. You should see what he does with duct tape !!

Always fun to watch again. Reminds me of a neighbor or two from the distant past.

Red Green and Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor are both funny--It's not about national boarders, but the human condition. Love them both.

Red Green is funnier than Tim Taylor. Just wish we had gotten Red Green instead of Justin Beiber. That would have meant we won the coin toss, instead of losing.
