Re: Elf in the shop

Yep, "OOOOOH NOOOO ! " was Mr. Bill's catch phrase, it was a segment on Saturday Night Live.

Re: How to indelibly mark plastic oil bottles?

PE, PP and Delrin ( acetal ) are the most difficult to mark and glue, you could try heat embossing the bottles with the contents name. PE and PP have a indicator to when they're ready to form, they go clear or translucent, it's probably close to their melting point when it gets to that stage but I h...

Re: Cabinets With Small Drawers For Under Work Table

I took a closer look at the Bisley unit I linked to and the drawers ( I think you typo'ed shelf instead of drawers ) and they sit on rails inside the main box.

Re: Simulated wood grain on metal?

I don't know if they exist in smaller scale than life size, but there are graining tools and pads to create painted on faux wood grain, but they are full size some hobby suppliers may have scaled down versions. One thing that I purchased but have not had the time to experiment with is a water slide ...
