    Re inverter technology I'm interested in that as well. My understanding, and I could have it wrong, is that if I select 50% power on a non-inverter unit it runs at 100% power 50% of the time. An...

    And not just with hide glue. I write the purchase date on every glue container when I bring it home. That doesn't account for time in the warehouse and on the shelf but at least it's something.

    What I've read about facial recognition is that it's pretty unreliable, hit rates in the single digits or something. Give it time though.

    The so-called "zipcode" saws that Sears sold got excellent reviews so of course Sears quit selling them. They were made by Orion I think. I think the primary difference between the 22104/22114/22124...

    It's been years since I had that saw but I had a similar issue. Mine worked perfectly once I loosened the tilt lock on the front under the table.

    That would be something cheap to try. I've used a 7.25" blade on a 3 hp saw cutting small pieces. It worked out well.

    I'm not familiar with the Bosch router but here's how I fixed the P-C style bushing problem. I bought a Grizzly trim router and wanted it to accept bushings. It didn't as sold. I made a new sub base...

    I have the straight blade Jet JJP-12. The jointer beds are 55" and I haven't found that limiting. I learned early on about the benefit of cutting rough stock to length before flattening it, wastes...

    I've never looked for such a thing at Home Depot. Our local Ace hardware has quite a large selection of such fittings. If you have a local hardware store have you checked there?

    The Grizzly trim router and MLCS Rocky (appear to be the same machine) have the same dust collection fitting as the Makita. I think the dust collection fitting would obstruct vision of the bit...

    I hope the Sanborn switch/pressure regulator/unloading valve is better quality than the one on the Campbell-Hausfeld I bought. What a flimsy 'value engineered' piece. I replaced it with a power...

    I'm not sure there's enough new in the traditional woodworking world to supply content for a monthly or bi-monthly magazine. Content does tend to get recycled every few years so for someone new the...

    I wonder how 98 & XP work on new hardware? New chipsets and features (I don't think NvME was even around in the early 2000s) may not be supported. Or do you have enough spare machines/parts to last...

    That could apply to hide glue too. The stuff does age and it depends on how it's stored. I read once - don't know how true it is - squeeze a little hide glue onto a finger and squeeze then separate...
