comment Marbles in marble dispenser get stuck trying to fit through hole
If all the holes are aligned, do marbles also get stuck? Is it only when they hit the top of the moving block that they get stuck?

comment What could be causing water to back up into my bathroom basin?
He did say a high-rise condo... so I think it's safe to assume there are other condos above.

comment How can I level my bed?
Can you install some cabinet levelers or furniture levelers? They are meant to adjust to uneven floors.

comment Drill a large circular depression into a wood surface
I wonder at what speed you should setup a drill press for that 4" bit. At 2" it's about 500 on softwood and 250 on hardwood...

comment Can I realistically replace my drill with a rotary hammer?
I can't find the it online. I went with a cheap local brand that usually have good quality/price ratio... but not that time. :(

comment Can I realistically replace my drill with a rotary hammer?
I find it harder to control my drilling speed with my rotary hammer drill than my regular hand drill. Mind you, it might be the brand/quality/features of my hammer drill.

comment How can I calculate the minimum allowable cross sectional area of a table leg?
Are you missing some 0s in your table's measurements? 14cm x 7cm (98cm²) with 6 legs of 6cm x 6cm (216cm²) I would say that will be pretty solid, no matter what type of wood... :) Also, a drawing or picture might help.

If you are not familiar with imgur, there's actually 3 images. (First, Second, Thrid)

comment Cleanest way to empty shop vac?
Can you buy filter bags for your unit? Can you install a cyclone collector? (This won't clean it but, it will reduce the number of times you have to empty it.)

comment When does sanding(smoothing out wood surface) sensibly apply
If I miss a spot, I would re-sand the whole surface where the spot is. The goal would be to avoid two coats of stains on the edge of the spot that I would have fixed. If you are really really accurate, you could just sand the spot and stain it and avoid the 2 coats on the edges... I'm not that accurate.
