    Interesting. I am familiar with larger, floor standing clamp racks (like JLT) but have never seen this brand before.

    I watched a few videos but couldn’t tell - do the front clamps open wide enough...

    This is basically where I’m at and my approach also. I’ll take clean, straight grain over figured / crotch / burl stuff everyday and twice on Sundays, but lots of different tastes and approaches out...

    We must be building different things and working with different woods. 40 grit?

    I can remove planer mill marks with a Festool random orbit sander pretty quickly at even 150. If I had to quantify...

    I am currently limited to starting up to ~ 10 hp / 30 amps @ 240v, 3 phase with my RPC. I have a 9 hp planer and table saw and it handles those no problem. I have read about starting smaller 3 Ph...

    To you guys with wide belt sanders - if you run something like a glued up door (whatever size will fit) through to flatten / level out all the joints...how much cross grain scratching do you get and...

    Thanks for the replies. It seems like we are all somewhat close.

    I think this choice has to do more with personal preference mixed with the specifics / results of each person’s tools. I have...

    This is good to hear. Woodcraft Bands was about 8 miles from my house before they closed up and there was no notice here locally. I used to drop in and chat with John many times and get a stack of...

    I know this is vague and depends but...

    I’m curious what grit others start their sanding routine at after milling? The planer is typically always the last step on both faces and edges unless the...

    I do that same as you Kevin, in general, unless it’s only a few drawers / something tiny. I will do accurate pre-planning / cutting as well as sometimes dry fitting the case enough to verify those...

    Are you only considering new machines?

    If considering used look for a SCMI SI-12. Has around ~60” or stroke IIRC, will be built better than anything on your list, and will be half the price or...

    I understand that sentiment. I have been thinking about adding in a vac pump/bag for a couple years now but had mostly written it off prior due to perceived cost and lack of space. Looking a bit...

    Thanks for the replies and Kevin, for all the details as always.

    Good to hear that I may have a chance putting a ~4x8 platen on my slightly undersized assembly table to start with until I get...

    I would agree that it’s likely the Gomad seller would take a low offer based on the looks of the situation, but who knows. It may just need some of the crusty bits cleaned up and it’s ready to play....
