Yeah, that was pretty dumb, knowing you can't use them. Box 'em up and ship them to me, I'll put them to use!

Alexis de Tocqueville was a very smart man.

Now that's a lucky day. We need more neighbors like that.

They're not hard to find here, Bill. I can buy them by the truckload at HD or ACE. I have about 15 of the 3/4" and a dozen of the 1/2". Some of them date back to the 70's.

Only thing my neighbor brings me is via his 100lb doberman he trained to #### in my yard.

After reviewing this topic I've concluded that MY neighbors suck.

Don't feel bad Steve. My neighbors not only suck they hold block parties where people shoot each other then call the cops.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

And I'll bet they don't even invite YOU. Do they? What if YOU want to shoot people? Those inconsiderate jerks!

Nice or not, they need to step up their game a little bit!

Are you telling me that being a good neighbor works both ways? Hmm, I hadn't thought of that. In that light, I'm a pretty lousy neighbor myself
