    Hammer slider vs. Minimax

    Thread Starter: Ryan Pappas

    I have decided to sell my sawstop and get a sliding table saw. I have narrowed it down to hammer k3 79x48 and minimax. I have the SC2 and the SC4 in mind for minimax. Also adding in the SC3 to the mix. I mainly make end grain cutting boards so not sure if a full 8ft is necessary for me but I know...

    Thread Starter: Clayton Dool

    I currently have a ts3650 with benchdog CI router insert. It works great. Runs smoothly. Have good blade guard with splitter.

    Help the Creek

    Thread Starter: Larry Frank

    I have read some postings about SMC and current financial issues. It appears there are many on here who are guests. Also, many are using ad blockers which hurt revenue. I am a contributor and it is well worth the very small cost. I also turned off the feature which prevents me from seeing...

    Attention Reed Gray

    Well right now I am scraping off wax that got where I did not want it. My pocket knife is handling that pretty good.

    Malcolm,

    I did a complete testing, including the swirl, smell, and color test before the most important taste test. It passed all but I needed
