    I am an amateur so I will try to be brief. Peter Millard - 10 minute workshop - has several good videos about 3 different track saw hinging systems for crosscuts. If you haven't seen them I would...

    I agree. It was far better than it needed to be at it's price point. I got rid of mine when I wore out the aluminum threads in the casting that supported the arbor height adjustment. That was a...

    My fence is straight enough but the steel tube of the fence does not have parallel sides. I can adjust either the right or the left side to be vertical but not both. I almost never rip with the...

    Tom, for an inexpensive option the hex drills will fit in a normal driver bit (or several) if that gets you up and above the obstruction. I like having them around. My favorite cordless drill is a...

    With a 120V motor the only real limitation, if you want to call it that, is that the blade must be appropriate, clean and fairly sharp when you want to make maximum depth cuts. I like a Woodsmith...

    I agree with Darrel, that is a little less than 1/128 inch and not of much consequence. But if it bugs you, you could shim between the face and the metal of the rip fence.

    Looks like an excellent method for something long like this. My sawstop came on a pallet and I picked it up in a little HF utility trailer behind my convertible. I took as much weight as possible...

    If it is rip capacity +~32 inches to get rail length, that suggests 48 inch rails give you 16 inches rip capacity. That doesn't make sense. So the 48 inch rail reference seems to be a guess or...

    I didn't go out the shop and measure but the rails are probably about 48 inches long. The 36 refers to the rip capacity to the right with the rail in it's normal position. It is not the total...

    I will just agree with the other comments. I usually put a little, 2 amp hour or smaller, battery in my drills because it makes them lighter, it is enough battery for a drill most of the time but is...

    I'm not sure of the shape. I googled "wooden half crutches" and got a slghtly curved fairly long stick design with a post for the hand at right angles to the long stick and a half cuff for the arm...

    Doug,

    If you notice the kerf closing, it helps to shut off the saw and put a shim into the kerf before resuming the cut. I've done this successfully several times but I normally don't want to...

    I have the PCS with the 36 inch fence and 1.75 hp motor. I think I bought it in 2019, might have been 2018. I cut three inch thick hardwood on it any time I need to do that. But I do not try it...

    I agree with the "do not rip" inputs with the only contra point is you might do it for looks. I built a 10 foot long dining room table last year. The top is cherry and is about 7/8 thick. I left...

    I will also add that the size of the pad is only one factor. The "turbo" mode of the Bosch is very important to me as is the larger orbit. I have a 6 inch DeWalt in the "almost never use" drawer...

    I use what I consider "normal" round over bits to make domino tenon stock. I have 5/16, 1/4, 3/16 and 1/8 round over bits and just use the closest one in my router table when I need to make a few...

    40 doors is enough to justify a Domino XL from my point of view. It will be by far the fastest and easiest way to add some long floating tenons to each joint. Deepest mortise it can make is 70mm,...

    I usually order bits from MLCS. I have used Whiteside and I think they are a little better but for most of what I do MLCS bits are plenty good enough.

    I would experiment in scrap with larger holes. Going up 1/64 may make a big difference. I think putting a little epoxy on the threads during installation will ease installation and also avoid it...

    I use acid brushes sometimes but recently I have used a Rockler silicone brush more. It has a flat end in addition to the brush. I like to shove that flat end into the mortise to spread the glue. ...

    I like Randy's idea too. Decent cordless chucks can also be tightened more by hand after I've snugged it by running it forward with my hand on the chuck. My Milwaukee M12 can, for instance, and the...

    I agree, as far as the look of the piece is concerned rounding to the nearest quarter inch should be plenty good on anything big. I wonder if they do not measure after the fact sometimes too. They...
