    I have no knowledge of the Bosch adapter, but Dewalt's is designed to keep the tool's original balance - more or less. The Li batteries are a bit smaller than the older NiMH and NiCad batteries,...

    I see the dovetail issues, but those are fixable. The rest of it looks great. I think you did a great job matching the grain and I like the overall design. Well done.

    I like to hear my tools and minimize distractions in the shop, too. I only use my Worktunes when sanding or doing something else that is monotonous and has a very low risk of injury. I never wear...

    +1 for the 3M Worktunes. I think they sound very good for $50, the battery lasts a long time, and they really do reduce outside noise quite well. My only two problems are: 1) my son keeps stealing...

    Trojan sawhorse legs. These attach to any 2x material (2x4, 2x6,...2x12) of any length to make a horse. I have found it handy to make a 6' wide set...

    I agree with Edwin's idea of a homemade jig, especially if your spacing doesn't vary.

    You're a lucky man! Happy Birthday!

    Good advice. I will definitely do this. I checked out the Makitas last night and liked how they felt. I'm a little wary of Makita since so many people in the other thread said they had...
