Not all threads are perfect, but they can be. Hackers sometimes become makers, and makers sometimes use threaded fasteners. Fasteners sometimes need a little TLC before they can serve you as well as you'd like. Also Whiskey pairs surprisingly well with Cheez-its® and Play-Doh®.

Creative topic choice. I congratulate your creativity.

I've built stuff with wood since I was a kid and read books about being Harry Homerepairman and I learned new stuff.

Chris' Blog

This was a great podcast. I'm currently building a home bar and your tips have helped greatly.

I also agree that hackers become makers, as I'm getting more and more into hardware hacking.

Looking forward to your next submission.

Thanks Bill

I appreciate the compliment. Thanks also for teaching me some of those tricks. The toothpick one at least was yours. Maybe more, but now I forget what's in that show.
