    Generally, 3m stuff is top drawer, but in my experience Klingspor has them beat. And Amazon ratings? Really, your better off just ignoring them, or taking them with a mountain of salt.

    Bill, in this situation, mass loaded vinyl is a waste of money. It's much cheaper to just add another layer of drywall. The place for mass loaded vinyl is where space is at a premium, or where there...

    The caution about motor weight should be heeded. That saw doesn't have particularly stout trunions & I wouldn't want to hang anything too heave off it.

    Darcy, I just knew someone would pop up with an exception :) I'm speaking to stuff of recent vintage. There are lots of foreign motors that have all kinds of odd (to us) voltage ratings.

    Ralph, 'ratings inflation' is largely a myth. In fact, amp for amp, a modern motor will put put more power than one of the old guys. Where it's not a myth is with the '6.5 HP' vacuums and '3.5 HP'...

    North American utility voltages are 120/240V single phase, or 120/208V 3 phase. I'm not aware of anywhere that offers higher voltages than 240V in single phase. Going up the voltage ladder, there is...

    I love old tree stories. My computer desktop wall paper is a photo of Angel Oak, a 400 year old live oak in SC. Thought to be one of the biggest oaks on the planet. It is gorgeous.
