    I've looked at the Moen device, but it also looks really plasticy. Like I'd be more worried about the valve breaking and leaking ��

    It's frustrating because I could almost build my own. A...

    I'd try an air chisel before anything bigger. You may be able to get a wide blade (like Lowell linked to) between the layers and just buzz through the screws....

    Oh, for sure I turn the water off when leaving for 1+ days. But even being gone at work for ~8hrs makes me nervous. A lot of damage could happen in 10 minutes, really.

    Mark, the Guardian is...

    Water leak detection?

    Anyone have thoughts on home water leak detection devices?

    I always worry about leaving home and a fixture supply hose burst....or having the icemaker solenoid stay stuck open....or having the...

    In pic #4, there looks to be a divot on the infeed table? Or is that just a reflection?

    Have you gotten a feeler gauge out and seen if any of those table blemishes put it measurably out of flat?

    Mark, I can't tell from the picture, but is it possible the reset button is "out"? The overcurrent may be tripped, which would prevent the coil from getting power.

    Oh, I see - you're moving the starter to the "other side" of the wall. Sorry for my confusion - I thought you were putting a switch between the motor and the starter.

    I think I agree with you that...

    Look for an "IR repeater" - it would let you put the "sensor" for the remote in your shop, and the "transmitter" could be placed right next to the remote control receiver on the cyclone. Just a thin...

    Patrick, many posts ago you were being critical of your paint job and said something like, "Well, it's less orange peel than I see on new cars". For some reason that line stuck with me, although it...

    Beautiful! I love how the color streaking seems very organic, on one hand, but that you were able to match it so well across all the "levels" to also make it look intentional. Very nice work!

    Thanks for all the feedback, everyone - it is genuinely appreciated (especially the critical feedback!).

    I had decided to bite the bullet and remove the particle board, but then found the door...

    I've had similar problems and reservations about running it through a power planer. FWIW, a sharp block plane works great.

    Update:

    I can see the layers (the particle board and ply) through a floor vent register that I removed, but my eyeball thickness measurements were off. The particle board is actually 5/8" thick,...

    At work, we had a monster 100kW power supply (needed 460V 3ph input). Always got a static "zap" when touching it. Turns out the screw holding down the 8AWG ground wire wasn't tight, and the little...

    Ah, I hadn't thought about that. You're right - it'll only go half-way into the 1/2" ply.

    I really, really hate this, but I am leaning this way. If this were a house I was planning to live in long-term, I'd tear up the particle board. But career plans leave me here for about ~4 years, and...

    If I were to install the hardwood on top of the particle board, the finished assembly would be 3/4" solid wood, 3/4" particle board, 1/2" ply, and barbed cleats running through the entire sandwich...
  23. Hardwood flooring over particle board subfloor?

    I'm tearing up carpet and putting down 3/4" solid hardwood, but have found that the subfloor is 3/4" particle board (yes, particle board, not OSB) on top of 1/2" plywood. From googling, I've learned...

    Worst-case, you could bypass the electronics and turn it into a "regular" table saw.

    SawStop is no longer a start-up - they were bought by Festool's parent company (TTS), which makes it unlikely...

    Just a bolt and a washer. Slides in the slot from the end. Not as heavy-duty as the Felder clamp, but very convenient.
