    Dennis, have fun with the CNC! Jim, guitar looks marvelous!

    I finished milling all the stock for my mantel project and finished all the joinery for the rails and stiles of the columns. The...

    If it's going into a public or commercial area (as opposed to someone's home), I'd bury some steel in it because someone will sit or climb on it. The L brackets made for mounting unsupported...

    You don't say what teeth per inch the blade is, generally 3-4 TPI is what you want. If your blade is too fine you will have to cut very slowly. Min radius you can cut with a 1/4 wide blade is...

    Very nice Brian! The maker always knows where the bodies are buried, but the smart maker keeps his or her mouth shut ;)

    Seems to me I have seen a popup when first logging in informing me when I have a new private message. Other than that, have never seen one on the creek.

    Timely. I've just been jointing 10' and 12' boards on my relatively short jointer. I mentioned in another thread that I bought a couple of Bora PM-2700 expandable roller stands and they have made...

    I've been using the Klingspor belts with no issues. Just don't buy too many, of any brand/type. The glue line is the weak spot and when the belts get old it seems the glue deteriorates and the belt...

    At least look at the new machine from Oneida; it's pretty practical if you're going to roll it around. Didn't see it on your list.

    And, FWIW, the V3000 comes with a tag (at least mine did) that...

    I put an antenna in the attic and it's connected to our Tablo OTA DVR. If you are in an area with decent signal strength it's a great solution for local stations. You pay a few bucks a month for...

    Decide which streaming service you want to use and then select a device that is compatible with that service. Many/most support Roku but not all. We have a tablo OTA DVR for broadcast stations and...

    The automatic sweeps work pretty well. Another option would be a conventional threshold with ramps on both sides to eliminate any tripping hazard and make it easy to roll stuff through. 1/4 plywood...

    Seems to me I read that Festool has updated the Kapex to address some of the issues users have reported with them.

    No, the 18bx comes standard with a more or less conventional high/low fence. It's nice and works well, but doesn't have the microadjust wheel like the driftmaster.

    They are 3.4cm, not a standard here or in metric. 1.25 would probably work, but then I'd have to weld in end pieces and replace the scales on all 8 legs. A lot easier to make some booties I think....

    The laguna is a fine saw, but I doubt you'd save much room over the 20". I mean, I'm the last guy to talk someone out of buying a tool, but most of the space needed at the bandsaw is infeed and...

    Chris, thanks for checking.

    Since a screw on extension isn't practical given the odd thread (although I could drill out and retap for 9/16), I thought I would just make booties.....a 2 1/2 square...

    Yes, this has been a problem for me too. I've had a number of outgrown but perfectly usable machines that I've tried to find a good home for without much success. I usually just end up donating...

    Sure looks identical except for color as you say. Right down to the red/white pinch warning label. If you get a minute, check and see if you have the wonky threads on the casters. See if a...

    I bought one in the early 80's and still have it. I built many, many projects using only it. I've since replaced most of its functions with dedicated tools, but still use it for drill press and...

    Hmmm, well, since it's already ruined, perhaps a heat gun will soften the hose enough to let you pull it out a little at a time? But have to be careful to heat the hose mostly and not the pipe. ...
  25. Quick Review: Bora PM 2700 expandable roller stand

    I needed a better way to deal with long (12-14') stock at the bandsaw, jointer and planer. For my mantel project I need to work with stock that long. I have a couple of single roller stands I have...
