    It doesn't have a built in gauge; I'll need to add one at some point. For house painting, eyeballing it in seems to work well enough.

    I only ordered the hopper rather than the kit. I might get a...

    Thanks for the replies! I ended up going the other direction and picked up a Graco 395 locally from Hirschfields. I have a 1.5 gal hopper on order from HD as well.

    I decided to go higher in...

    Well, in theory, a skilled woodworker could build the USS Constitution with nothing but their grandfather's jack-knife, but that doesn't mean it would be enjoyable or smart:)

    I have a Biesemeyer overarm guard (not available now) which I more or less like. The main issue I have, and all guards will have this same issue, is that when I really need the guard, like when I am...

    If the fit in the dado is fairly tight, you may get enough seasonal cupping in the boards to more or less friction fit them in place, while still allowing for expansion and contraction.

    They are even showing up in MN. Usually our winters keep us safe from those sorts of things, but apparently not the jumping worms. I don't think I have seen them in our yard, but it is probably...

    I used a Rigid vac with an aftermarket HEPA filter and a muffler. Unfortunately the new Rigid vacs are different than the older ones and the aftermarket HEPA filters don't fit as well. After the...
  8. Airless Sprayer question for the experts

    I'm going to pick up an airless sprayer in the next week, and I am deciding between the Graco X17 and Graco 390. Background: I'm not a pro painter, but I will be doing my shop, garage, house,...

    I had my 1.5 hp compressor in with my 3 hp Oneida for years and had no problems. Minimal dust in the closet, what was there was probably from emptying the filter or the drum. Definitely less fine...

    Hard to tell from the picture, but I see little ray flecks in the top, so probably maple. Oak and beech have fleck, but it doesn't have the grain of beech or the pores of oak.

    Bottom and skirting...

    That is both cool and kind of terrifying. I could see the utility of it though, especially for trim work and small jobs.

    I do it freehand on my old Craftsman 6" grinder (handy skill from my machinist days), but my dad had a Drill Doctor that he used and it seemed to work well enough. Read the directions well though,...

    I've got the Kreg one that comes with the drawer slide and cup hinge jig combo kit. I actually like it, quite handy. It isn't the fanciest thing, but it gets the job done quickly and well enough. ...

    I will clean up rust on the bottom (frog side) of the iron, and run it briefly on something like a diamond stone to check for high spots, but I'm not going to lap it on a surface plate or anything...

    Either is fine; I'd go with whatever is easiest to put in. Myself, I would probably just screw 2 or 3 layers of whichever you chose onto the current frame, rather than mess around with glue. That...

    It is very individual. My current Frid bench is about 33" tall, and if I still did a lot of face and finish planing of boards, I would want it lower. Now, it is used more for joinery and holding...

    I wouldn't completely rule out building doors. I did these in less than a day. They are basically hinged walls; framed with studs and sheathed in OSB on both sides. There is even a vapor barrier on...

    It definitely looks like it is a real plane, whether it is all original parts to that plane I don't know either way. No idea what the seller wants for it, but unless you want it for collectable...

    Cherry coffee table with a coat of SealCoat with 3 coats of thinned Minwax Satin Poly(more or less the same thing as ArmRSeal). So far my teenager has not been able to stain it or damage the finish...

    The moisture content is the main thing to worry about first. Is it kiln dried to furniture requirements (somewhere down under 10%), or is it construction lumber dried only to 19%?

    I try to do the roundovers prior to machine sanding if I can, but sometimes it works better afterwards. I know the grit is probably bad for the router bits, but I use the inexpensive Rockler brand...

    I recently got a 5" Deros with a 5mm stroke. The only time I have gotten swirl marks was when I was being (too) aggressive using 80 grit to pull off a finish. I wasn't exactly using good technique...
