    Some Euro machines in local shops...

    Thread Starter: Erik Loza

    I recently did a tour of a few local Austin shops. Typically, what I see in shops is a bunch of either older American iron or your typical Chaiwanese assortment of table saws, jointers, planers, etc. I'll post pics from our shop at some point but I thought folks might enjoy seeing some Euro...

    Thread Starter: Greg Parrish

    Tablesaw dust collection hood

    Threaded inserts for hardwood

    Thread Starter: Steven J Corpstein

    Pin Nails - Punch in and use filler?

    Better pin (& brad & nail guns) will sink the fastener deep enough that it won't be a problem & do it at a lower pressure & leave no "dimply"
