Remodeling 101: 8 Sources for Used Appliances

If you drive a secondhand car, you’re well aware of the pros and cons of buying used machinery. But did you know you could shop the same way for a fridge or a stove or a mixer? We didn’t until years back, when architect Elizabeth Roberts told us she found her Wolf range on Craigslist (see page 82 of the Remodelista book). Now we’re noticing more and more appliances sourced at a discount on sites like this (see, for example, The House that Craigslist Built and A Buzzfeed Founder’s Renovated Rowho...

John Calder, Publisher Who Introduced Beckett, Burroughs, And ‘Last Exit To Brooklyn’ To Brits, Dead At 91

“[He] helped introduce British readers to continental writers including Eugene Ionesco, Marguerite Duras and Alain Robbe-Grillet, and also championed edgy Americans, publishing Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer and William S. Burroughs’ The Naked Lunch.” In 1966 he was convicted of obscenity for publishing Hubert Selby’s gritty novel “Last Exit to Brooklyn. The conviction was overturned on appeal, in a landmark free-speech case.”

Tools & Craft #103: How Drawbore Pins Work

Since we introduced Ray Iles's draw borepins last fall, we've gotten a ton of questions about why real ones such as these work better than concentric tapered pins - that is, pins that are sometimes misconstrued as drawbore pins but really are just tapered drift pins. Drift pins are just tapered rods, which from any angle look like cones.Traditional drawbore pins, on the other hand, look like drift pins in one dimension, but if you rotated the pin 90 degrees, one side would becomes straight and t...

Isles’ Rookie Barzal and His 3 Big Nights

At the beginning of the 2016-17 season, the New York Islanders took the opportunity to see how their two first-round picks from the 2015 draft would perform at the NHL level. Mathew Barzal, drafted 16th, and Anthony Beauvillier, drafted 28th, were both 19 years old at the time. Barzal was slightly favored to make the team, although both played well enough in training camp to make fringe veteran players nervous about losing their roster spots. In the end, it was Beauvillier who impressed the coac...

I Tried Samsung's New Galaxy Note9 — & This Is How It Changed My Photos

LED-embedded wristbands worn by audience members glinted in the stands of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center last week, producing an effect akin to cell phone flashlights waving in unison to a slow song at a concert. It was a fitting homage given that onstage, Samsung executives filled the role of performer as they presented the company’s latest entry into the mobile marketplace: The Galaxy Note9, a model that is often considered more of a cross between a phone and a tablet — or, the more cringe-worthy...
