This question is for Marc since he maintains the website. When I’m viewing the WTO website, under the WTO “Let’s Talk Shop” logo, there is a big white box that looks to be some sort of control that isn’t working. Is it just my computer, or is there a problem viewing the site with Internet Explorer? Is this just that silly old PC Internet Explorer thing?

I have a question about running PVC for air lines in the shop. I ran 1/2″ schedule 40 in my old workshop, and it stayed up for at least a decade. I’m wondering if I just got lucky on the pipe or glue being good quality. I would like to hear your take on this.

I watched the jointing video from Hendrik. I noticed that he kept his factory blade guard on there. Of course I threw mine in the trash, and I’ve been working without one. I am now sufficiently scared if a stud like Hendrik is using his blade guard, I need one. I’m now considering an aftermarket blade guard. What are your thoughts? I’m leaning towards the Exaktor or maybe the Excalibur blade guards.
