    From how you describe it, depending on the angle at which the two main trunks were growing away from each other, it sounds like you've probably got a lot of reaction wood there.

    Plus, it's a yard...

    Do you know specifically how the EPA measures this? Just for the record.

    Specific to Alan, I'm calling it sea breeze, most likely.

    You may (or in Tampa may not) have noticed that when you turn on the humidifier in your shop, the Dylos small-particle readings spike pretty hard, because of the fine mist of water droplets in the...

    The longest guide track I know of, the Makita 118", is not long enough to do 10 foot boards (even if it didn't need the overhang.) But for shorter boards it would work. As you say, the edges need to...

    I've heard of other Makita VS routers doing this (sudden lack of speed control.)

    Sorry to hear about the accident.

    I have a Makita VS angle grinder, which of course comes with the guards, etc....

    I was working with some 10 foot oak boards last week, for a large shelving unit, and my 7 foot jointer bed (PM882) would have done the job, but I thought it would be a bit awkward to move them across...

    You need a/c, or in Austin your shop is going to be uninhabitable for a good part of the year (starting a month ago, but often earlier.) Including a mini-split for the shop, otherwise dust would get...

    The one I was referring to is the Lamello Dosicol 20, I just checked and it's US$89 from the Home Depot. One squirt and done, very efficient. Yeesh, the price has gone up a bit. Still, way cheaper...

    Yes. Long jointer (and of course the planer), done right before glue-up. Parallel clamps rather than pipes, and in spite of the biscuits you should still be using cauls (cheap to DIY). A...

    That is not quite true with oak trees in Texas, where there is commonly the oak wilt. In fact, this is not a good time to trim them at all. Fall and early winter is preferable.

    If a plane looks like it's hardly ever been used, it makes me suspicious. I like obvious users.

    OTOH, some people just like'em shiny.

    This is where I part with people like Sellers, what with...

    I use them on a flat surface, so they get full support. What I don't get, is those holders that only support the stone in two or three places, whereupon this might be a real issue.

    They charge US$58 for a 1000 grit Pro, amazon charges $41 for the same stone, next day delivery. Comparing the glass stones is closer, though.

    I have some glass and I have some pro, and I don't know where you're shopping, but IME the pro are substantially cheaper (I buy them both on amazon,) and you get more actual cutting material for your...

    To be clear, I've never advocated sole flattening, and I've never actually done that myself. I gaze on in wonder at some people who...
