    I really like the good intentions that so many would have to support charitable works if they happened to hit the "big one". On the other hand, a lot of folks don't really fathom the amount of money...

    When I had my cabinet saw, the Forrest was my go-to for dados, grooves and rebates on the table saw. Do note that it (and many other higher end) dado sets have very sharp corners on the outside...

    Years ago, I build a "more productive" hood for an older Delta Uniguard that didn't actually have dust collection capability. I used .25" Lexan and assembled the components using MEK solvent. (only...

    If you want a more massive wedge, it's going to require the taper, IMHO. But your alternative is to drawbore and pin with dowels. Those tenons are not going to move with that (no racking) because of...

    I see no harm to the 6" drop to the table saw/overarm location and the 6/4/3 split. (You will likely need to use a 6/4/3 wye and adapt the hose for the overarm accordingly...at least I did when I set...
