    Sand them smooth, slather with bondo, sand them again, paint. They were not designed to be tightened with something with teeth like that. Even the latest version would suffer from that. Tightening...

    Yes, for ripping it's not a terrible thing to play with the blade height to get the best combination of cutting and "mess". Only exposing the teeth near the top of the cut should likely keep a lot of...

    It's required here, too...stabilizes for flex, especially since spans tend to be longer these days than "back in the day" because folks don't want posts and bearing walls in the middle of things.

    Look at the tooth geometry between those two blades. The WW-II has sharper angles on the edges of the teeth and doesn't have a raker like a ripping blade does. The ripping blade makes "chips" in line...

    Most of the "mass market" tool brands are going to be very similar and many are made in the same factories. Parts often interchange between them no matter what the color or brand label. (but not...

    Tanos is the manufacturer (and in the same corporate family as Festool)...so if it's a "SysTainer", it's Tanos, regardless of the color or branding. They are all compatible with each other. So if...

    That's likely relative to the manufacturer and type. The leak detecting valve system that our washer connects to is default to "off" at all times unless the washer is asking for water. When the...

    I think it's very likely that over time there will be methods discovered that will provide a means to delay "aging" to some extent...not "immortality", but I do believe that the science community...

    Immunotherapy for cancer (and other things) is a hot bed in recent years...that article makes it seem like it's totally new. Perhaps their particular approach is, I don't know. This kind of treatment...

    Mirrorless is indeed the thing now in "big body" digital cameras. While I don't feel the need to take that leap, if I were buying new right now, no question, I'd buy mirrorless, either a Z6 or a Z7....

    I also have the Little Wizard and it works fine for metal in material that's not overly thick. It's not effective for things like reclaimed beams. A stronger wand like the larger ones used in Airport...

    Ric, just so you know, setting up a contactor is basically setting up a "switch"...no "electronics" in the deep technical sense is involved and a contactor has screw terminals. It really is pretty...

    Same with my D750. In fact, I kinda embraced the "F4 Trinity" save money as they more than met my needs including for indoor equestrian with Auto-ISO and very minimal noise. Huge surprise compared to...

    Ditto what Mreza said...literally. Newer machine, same process.

    I wish I could help with the knife question, but my unit has a Tersa setup which requires no knife adjustment.

    The kind used for security checks is fine for the purpose and they are generally more powerful (can see "deeper") than the small, inexpensive ones sold for "woodworking". I have one of those and it...

    While I'm totally in the Nikon camp, it's always nice to see these improvements from any of the major manufacturers, especially with camera bodies being so capable these days, especially in low light.
