    I dont think the idea is crazy, and the router table should work just fine; however, this is a ton of work. That is probably 40 hours of work by the time you make a coping jig, mount the feeder, and...

    Hey Chris,

    I would definitely send it out for sharpening. Thatís kind of the beauty of the carbide blades. If you donít sharpen them, that is a costly disposable blade. There may be another...

    I agree, but it seems like more and more people are reporting a two coat process for walnut. I do something similar, but i top rubio monocoat with their universal oil. It definitely adds depth and...

    Sorry we got somewhat hyper focused on carving seats, but dont think of that as 'industrial/for profit" kind of work. What i meant to say is, if you truly want a CNC router capable of many furniture...
  6. Timber frame Mortiser and Circular Saw

    Somewhat specialized bundle, but i know there has been some interest in the past for portable mortisers. These two tools are made by Protool, which was later purchased by Festool maybe a decade ago....

    Oh no, i agree wholeheartedly with you, John. Im 34, but i could be 12 and i still think a CNC is the better way to batch out sculpted chair seats! Ive done a handful manually, and its not my...

    I dont think so. I have three festool sanders, and i think they each have a use. I have a RO150, ETS EC 150/3, and a RO90. The RO150 leaves a crap ton of swirls and pigtails, which is why the ETS EC...

    The capabilities and uses are wide and varied, but are highly dependent on your design skills and software comprehension. I think most use them for making templates, vcarving, inlays, sculpting...

    If you were in PA, id happily have you come by. I bought out an old timer's shop 3-4 years ago and ended up with a fair amount of 8/4, 6/4, and 4/4 mahogany from the 1970s. Sadly, the guy was a...

    Just when i wrote this tool off, you rope me back in! I think im just going to buy both and see what i like. Heck, i might end up keeping both, but the effectiveness of the 16" circ saw diminishes...

    Scott, that is interesting. I am unsure how the chainsaw will perform on a rip cut, but im guessing you will need to stay 1/8"+/- off your layout line and then come back and pare to your line with a...

    Bill, this is a slightly different animal and not an apples:apples to the makita. This is a chainsaw that cuts 14-15Ē thick in one pass.

    The problem with that, Wes, is he is limited to the travel of the table across a 12-18" blade. .001-.002" across a 12" blade plate means his actual error could be 5-10x worse over an 8-10' stroke....

    This happens when a small offcut gets jammed into the throat opening and deflects the blade into the sliding table. Its why a zero clearance is a good idea. Its also why Martin designed their tables...
