Getting the Most From a Threadbox

A 1-inch threaded dowel can save some $ and add flexibility to the shop.  Handy for outfeed table leveling feet, holding picture frames secure in a spline-cutting jig (the other end of the rod serves as handle while cutting the spline), and especially custom claming vises and presses. The 1" diameter rod is large enough to comfortably grip and apply torque for simple clamps. The savings gained making your own jigs/clamps is well worth the price of the Threadbox and dowel rod. I've not had any problems with the cutter breaking, but did have to sharpen it once to due to rough threads.  Not too much difficulty getting the cutter re-set.  I've only used birch dowels, and poplar for the internal threads.  I soak the rod in linseed oil prior to cutting as instructed.  Seems to do a good job of lubricating, and I go slow with the cutter, back and forth while slowly advancing.  A self-releasing dowel clamp (last two photos) holds the rod firmly while cutting.  The clamp shown holds 1" and 3/4" dowels.  A pair of  internal coil springs spreads the two faces of the clamp when clamp pressure is released.

Each day was challenging, enjoyable and provided incredible scenery. And, per our request, plenty of shopping opportunities! This area of Provence is truly picturesque, and Neil's knowledge of the area allowed us a peek at a few spectacular local places that were either ignored or misjudged as "not worth the time" by popular guidebooks. The review of our stay wouldn't be complete without mentioning the incredible dinners we enjoyed (paella, moules et frites) with Neil and Nat and the company of Lucy and James.

The location is ideal, with the calm Mission Bay, and just a block away lies all the activities of Pacific Beach. We stayed in the garden view rooms, so did not have waterfront view from our room, but our son loved seeing the ducks from our room.

Ralph Nader supporters say there no difference between the other two guys. Some disaffected Democrats agree. Civil libertarians argue that this law is an example of blatant discrimination, based on income and race. By definition, they say, the law is designed to penalize the less fortunate college applicants: Students who can pay for college with their own (or more likely, their parents own) money, are unaffected by the law, while needy students are subjected to unfair scrutiny and the loss of an education. The law also unfairly targets minority citizens, by virtue of the deep racial inequality of the nation war on drugs: Sixtytwo percent of those with drug convictions are AfricanAmerican, even though they make up only 12 percent of the population and 13 percent of all drug offenders...
