    3D Planning Software

    Thread Starter: Bennie Dempsey

    Hey all! I would like to start planning out my projects before I begin them, as I've heard that's a good habit to have. I can find a modeling program online pretty easily, but I wanted to see what you guys use. I am awful at hand drafting so paper and pencil isn't my go-to for personal projects....

    Jointer Safety

    Thread Starter: Tim M Tuttle

    I've been milling up a lot of white oak the past two nights. While I was using my jointer I started to ponder safety.

    Two Year Old Camaster Stinger III

    Thread Starter: Ronald Blue

    I have a locally available Camaster Stinger III. It's a 4 X 8 machine with a three head setup. Whats the benefit of the three head arrangement? Is it an alternative to an ATC system? What's a fair price? He says it was $18,000 new. He's discounted it a lot from that amount. Nearly half. He did say...

    Anyone use epoxy putty before?

    I’ve always had this stuff on my radar and the more I read about it, it sounds really promising. It seems to be kind of a crossover/best of both
