    Want to clarify for myself, the OP, or possibly both. I think what he(and me) find most impressive about his wood top is the curl/figure and not the staining caused by the ambrosia beetle....

    Can’t comment on the older cast iron saws—ceilings are too short to own one or else I would—but I can comment on resaw height. I have used 18-19.5” plenty of times on my saw. I would be disappointed...

    I have the half mask with carbon filters for spraying, and then a full 3m face mask with the p100s. The face shield is more expensive, but its a nice piece of equipment. It gives you full face...

    Jim is not kidding. Leather upholstery will surprise and maybe even take your breath away. For two chairs and two ottomans, i think the local shop was $2200-2500 total. The work is phenomenal and the...

    The fail was the inability of the fuji system to atomize the paint. Even after thinning the paint considerably, it still didnt spray at all. I might try the lacquer options or milkpaint in the...

    Well, that was an enormous fail. Even after thinning the paint with the M-1 additive, it still sprayed like crap. It looked like I was dipping s paint brush in paint and then flicking it at the...

    This is the point i was trying to make dependent on budget. There is nothing wrong with a 6" jointer! I could probably make most projects with a 6" machine. It wouldnt be as fast, or as enjoyable, or...

    I just did this on a 14 year old KF700. Hose was nonexistent. I replaced it with a 4" hose, and didnt think to modify the cabinet for a 5" hose. Sounds like a decent amount of work for a little...
