Re: Electrical wiring in the home shop.

#5 -- That I did not know! Thanks! I'll review what I've done, but I seldom run more than two NM cables directly next to each other.

My suggestion to you is to ensure that you can machine a piece at least 8' long.

Good suggestion, Harold. I'll bear that in mind when the time comes to layout my space.

Thanks, Harold. I had a terrible June/July /August with work. I really need to retire, so I can do some ''important" work!

Harold, have you checked out Diana Krall? I suspect you might like her.

She is married to the musician Elvis Costello, who is one of my favorite artists.

4 AR book shelve speakers,
I have a pair of AR 2Ax speakers. Just had new foam surrounds put on them.

The only other speaker I'd have would be some JBL L-100's.

I had to chuckle when you said your system was overkill. Is there really such a thing? If I had means, I'd own one of McIntosh's 2,000 watts amps, although I have no idea what I'd do with the power.

Well, you wouldn't have to worry about clipping!

Re: Splicing Romex?

Code requires NM cable be enclosed in conduit anywhere it is 'exposed' -- so unless it is in a wall or routes through holes in joists, it must be in conduit. And, where run through joists, the holes must be 2 or more inches away from the edge. This is so any nails driven into the joist won't penetra...

Re: Shop Build (help appreciated!)

Another vote for what I presume other's have recommended: engineered joists. ... I know of two types of 'engineered joists'. Those that are 3 or 4 manufactured 2 x 8 (or 6 or 10) and those that are flat trusses fab'd out of 2 x 4s with pin plates at the joints. Good points. My familiarity is with t...

Re: India Stones

No need to pay someone to flatten one. There is a well known process to flatten any surface using a total of three 'flat' objects. I can't recall the details, but if you google 'flatten surface,' I suspect you'll find it.

Re: Rotary table Lubrication

IIRC, I think my Phase II RT said to use hydraulic oil. I'll have to look tomorrow.
