Re: all-thread studs for clamping

Our local Fastenal says open to the public and says everything except "get lost" when I enter. 2 other stores in Columbus have the same attitude. You can see broken open boxes of bolts on the shelves but cannot buy Them.

Re: Cheap Saltpeter for Stumps

Re: Layout dye

Just as an aside, the reason I went with red was because the shop I worked at only had blue.
