    I have used a heat gun to pop off the bigger drips, and I have also used a wire wheel on a drill to clean and polish the clamp bars. Once you get them clean, wax the hell out of them, it will save...

    Buyer's regret over Domino XL (DF 700)?

    Just curious if any of you that have purchased a DF 700 have had major buyer's regret (other then the obvious - price!)? I am just a hobbyist but I'm "ramping up" so to speak, have been trying to...

    I have not heard of any of the other three. TradeWinds looks - expensive - but who knows? Very intriguing to find that kind of stock here in VT. Kerber also looks interesting. Might have to check...

    I have a wide-ranging assortment of various manufacturers of screws in my shop, as I seem to do a fairly balanced amount of rough work and cabinet work, but I always seem to reach for the GRK screws...

    I was able to heat up the wax in the can with a heat gun set very low, took a while and released a lot of fumes/odor of turpentine, but it is much better behaved now. Still tough to buff out, I may...
  10. Butcher's Wax on machinery tables - questions

    I have an old can - 25-30 years old - of White Diamond Butcher's Paste Wax. Old enough that it's changed names and companies. The wax in the can is hard and breaks into chunks, very difficult to...

    I use a Freud LM74R010, which is their coated 30-tooth glue line rip blade, on a 3-hp Unisaw. It does produce glass-smooth cuts and it has some serious carbide teeth, big enough for a bunch of...

    For window screens I would definitely prefer to use half-laps or bridle joints. Very strong if done right. I've built some big cabinet doors with nothing but stub tenons and good glue and they hold...

    Another vote for a masonite top. I've used 3M Super 77 or Super 90 spray adhesive to keep the hardboard in place without using screws or nails. That way no risk of damage to cutting edges. A few...

    I did the interior of my shop (24x36 garage) with 7/16" OSB when it was $8 a sheet. Now it's $28 a sheet around here, and there is no way I'd spend that kind of money for it now. I did finish it...
