Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



Mark asks…

funny or not2?

A man is strolling past the mental hospital and suddenly remembers an important meeting.

Unfortunately, his watch has stopped, and he cannot tell if he is late or not. Then, he notices a patient similarly strolling about within the hospital fence.

Calling out to the patient, the man says, “Pardon me, sir, but do you have the time?”

The patient calls back, “One moment!” and throws himself upon the ground, pulling out a short stick as he does. He pushes the stick into the ground, and, pulling out a carpenter’s level, assures himself that the stick is vertical.

With a compass, the patient locates north and with a steel ruler, measures the precise length of the shadow cast by the stick.

Withdrawing a slide rule from his pocket, the patient calculates rapidly, then swiftly packs up all his tools and turns back to the pedestrian, saying, “It is now precisely 3:29 pm, provided today is August 16th, which I believe it is.”

The man can’t help but be impressed by this demonstration, and sets his watch accordingly.

Before he leaves, he says to the patient, “That was really quite remarkable, but tell me, what do you do on a cloudy day, or at night, when the stick casts no shadow?” The patient holds up his wrist and says, “I suppose I’d just look at my watch.”

Denny answers:

I’m going to put this joke down to u being tired lol

Maria asks…

what car should i buy?

im a carpenter. i dont want a big car but i do need trunk space for tools .. i do alot of driving so that is a big factor. i will not go domestic . i have about 6-9 grand to spend on a car (money isnt an issue its more about the car itself) im looking at a 4 door honda civic i believe its a 2002-4 or a 2002-5 Mazda 3 .. the mazda is a hatchback and the civic is a coupe .. i want to know what you would choose why.. and why you wouldnt choose the other car. also if you have other suggestions i would like to hear them

i was also thinking toyota corolla. i dont like the back windows of the matrix and mazda 5 ..
i need something cheap on gas and reliable. i dont wanna boat just cause it has trunk space. but i dont want something that makes me look like a homo

hopefully i was specific enough to get a solid answer . if you have sites that you looked at id like those pasted aswell

Denny answers:

Toyota Corolla’s are decent. They aren’t the most masculine car but no foreign cars are that masculine. That’s the American segment. :P

I would chose the Mazda 3 out of the ones you listed, though. It’s good on gas, and being a hatchback it’s got plenty of room space in the back especially with the seats folded down. It’s also got a sporty appeal to it. Even the hatchback version is pretty sporty.

I wouldn’t chose the Honda Civic because it’s a ‘cute’ car.

Denny answers:

You do not want the Corolla. It is one of the most boring cars to drive and one of the most underpowered cars.

Honda is the most reliable brand in the world, with Subaru at number 2, Toyota as the third, and Mazda is the 4th.
So they are all very reliable cars.

The Civic gets 36mpg highway.
The more powerful, faster, heavier and more practical Mazda 3 gets 32mpg highway depending on the engine option you get.

For work, the Mazda 3 is better with the hatchback trunk. And it handles like sports car and it is the fastest car you listed so this is the best choice. It also comes with the most standard features.

Linda asks…

looking into building your own house?

i was just wondering about this. im really tired of owing people money and loans. i could get a piece of land(i live in the middle of nowhere) and build my own house slowly piece by piece. ive seen people do this. heck i have a 3d program i can design the thing in myself.
i have plumbing, carpentry and electrical experience and a ton of my own tools. i have worked as an electrician so i can handle that part no problem, the only thing i honestly dont know about is building codes and concrete.
maybe i should work with some people and learn for a few years first. but i think it could be done.
the houses i see today are cheaply built, theyre not getting any better. and they cost a fortune, especially the ones in subdivisions. i dont want a mobile home they dont last and theyre just slapped together.
whats the best way to go about this? just wanted to hear from someone with experience…

Dusty answers:

YES it can be done.

I know this because I designed and built my own home by MYSELF with the help of my wife. I did hire someone to do the flat cement work, but I did my own basement (lower walk out level) walls. I used “Styrofoam” forms that you leave in place to make a finished R-25 wall.

I hired a crane to help set the trusses, I also had my two brothers and a friend help on this step. But other than that I did EVERYTHING else myself.

Don’t think it is cheap, building materials will still cost you a lot of money. And it takes a LOT of time. I took an entire year off work and devoted it to working on my home. I have been living in the home for 5 years now and am still finishing up parts of the trim work and my kitchen cabinets don’t have doors on them yet.

As far as building codes are concerned, you may have to hire some parts to be done by a licensed contractor. For example I had to have my well and septic systems put in my professionals because of State codes. You need to do the research with your local government to see what they require for zoning and permits.

My house is 3,400 square feet on three levels. I will E-mail you a picture if you want.

Charles asks…

How to tell employer I dont want to use saw?

I am 18 and I got a summer job where I am required to occasionally use a table saw. I have taken a wood shop class 5 years ago, however I am very scared of the darn thing. I am young and will have plenty of uses for my hands and fingers later. During the interview I was asked if I have any carpentry skills, to which I replied that I can use hand tools. It was never discussed that I will be using a table saw, nor was that mentioned in the ad for the position. I have told the shop manager that I am uncomfortable using the saw, and for a week I was not asked to touch it. But for future I need advice on how to refuse using the table saw without breaking or tensing relations with the employer. Any help would be appreciated.

Dusty answers:

If you are asked again; dont refuse… Be passive there and after finishing work show your concerns again by way of PERSUASIVE CHANNEL.

Share your concern with employer “tell him that customer might be dissatisfied over your performance”.

Maria asks…

Dusty answers:

Definatly go for the car mate. I made the mistake of spending all my cash on a bike as soon as i was old enough to drive. Was great in the summer, come winter your Riding to work in the rain and cold, its no fun trust me and pretty dangerous

Im a biker through and through, but the car is more practical for your tools and stuff. Get the car now, and the bike after that when you can afford it

Laura asks…

Justice or not Justice?? pt 2

Here’s what Happened.
For about 2 days now there has been some people ( A Carpentry Company ) working next door somewhere on the roof.. In order for them to work they need our permission to get into our property. So we give them permission to work in a certain Space and nowhere else. First at they have all these heavy tools on the lawn!!! and at the end of day one they “mistakenly” take a 20 ft. ladder it would of been gone if my father didn’t notice. On day two they get into our garden taking our tomatoes without any permission ( they were caught with a bag full by my mom. ) and leaving behind some plants crushed ending up in a huge argument with my mom the supervisor of the company! ( My father wasn’t home ). Note** Their supervisor sent them To take the tomatoes!

So my Question is this a situation to be held in court for their abusement to our property they had no right to do these things.

** On day 2 they finished work..

Dusty answers:

Only if you are suing them for damages which sounds like they crushed plants and stole some tomatos. I would simply wwrite them a letter and ask them to pay for damaged plants and stolen tomatoes. If they don’t and you think it is worth filing a suit do so but if not, I would file a complaint with the better business burea.

How hard would it be to make a full scale model of the flintstones car on a reasonable budget?

I’m 14 and don’t have very much on building skills but I do have a Huge Forest, Power tools, a couple of large steel trash cans and a lot of rope, Wood, and cloth. and a Mom who is a semi-pro carpenter So how hard to you think it would be to build a Flintstones car as a personal project? and would stripping and spray painting the wood I used be a very reasonable Idea as paint if I coated it multiple times?

Dusty answers:

Steve Rutledge did it,a full size working model sure you could too.

Mandy asks…

Jesus was a carpenter. What did he build?

We know what was in his heart from moment to moment. My questions is what kind of carpenter was he? Cabnetmaker? Furniture maker. What were his favorite tools? And do any of the things he built still survive today?

Personally, I don’t think he was any good at his craft. He never spoke of anything he was building.
Fireball is saying that god is jesus.
So god created the universe, then Adam, then later came down here himself in a suicide mission. ??
Where is the evidence that Jesus built homes. DO NOT say the bible please.
Armond is not all there….

Dusty answers:

He didn’t build anything.
By the way, Noah supposedly built the ark. Not jeesus.

Chris asks…

How many American jobs will be lost to overseas outsourcing before our goverment decides to regulate it?

I’m an engineer. I was employed at a rather large company that manufactures heavy duty off road vehicles, (Wheel Loaders and Excavators and such). Recently, I’ve lost my job because the “higher ups” in my company decided to cut costs. They hired an engineer from India to replace me at a fraction of the cost of my wage. I’m middle class and when I see these people with six figure incomes it makes me question their true worth? They will argue that it’s actually positive for our the company and our ecomony, but as I sit here typing this, (unemployed), I wonder….who are the ones benefitting? I am unemployed. I don’t build bulldozers any longer but they are still being built. These bulldozers clear the land for the house that I can no longer afford. The carpenter, plumber, electrician, etc. don’t have a job because the house was never built. They don’t have to buy tools anymore either. The trucks that deliver those tools will be parked. I wish I could type more, but you get the point!

Dusty answers:

You sound like a Mechanical Engineers. I suggest you move to an area where engineering jobs have been “insourced” from Japan or Korea. A Toyota, Hunydai, Honda, or Nissan plant.
