    I'm not even anti Walmart. But the effect they had on how items are produced drives me nuts. I'm all for affordable, poorly made products for people that want them. But it bites having to search...

    Sounds like you're describing a wood mosaic or intarsia. Wood movement shouldn't be an issue and clamping shouldn't even be super necessary. Picture is not mine, just trying to clarify that this is...

    That's exactly what it is not. Both rails must have identical angles or the butt joint won't match up.

    My general rule of thumb is that any discrepancies don't matter until they present themselves while I'm working. If i can't notice it from the cut, does it matter?

    No need for a shim. All you need to do is slide the off-cut down until the faces meet and you get the proper angle.

    In the future, you might want to see if you're within Fessenden Hall's delivery area.

    Actually, the OP starts by declaring that the question is, "Trying figure out how much electricity these 2 drills use." The post is ambiguous, at best. I think it's safe to assume that the first line...

    The corded drill would use more electricity because the cordless would die well short of running for 2 hours.

    That's pretty much how I build these. With the waterfall miters, any faultline wouldn't be constrained by the adjoining piece. So, I build the panels in layers so no checking can go all the way...

    I think keeping them organized would quickly eclipse any issues caused by having them connected. I rarely even ever take them off the hook on the wall to use them.

    Did I miss something? When did steel blades stop cutting wood? I'd sharpen them and use them for when cut quality really mattered. Steel can be sharpened to a much finer edge then carbide.

    I've had them both. Pretty much the exact same system. The Porter Cable is sloppier and has some less refined features, like the endstop that screws into place instead of being machined into the main...

    IMO, the 7518 is the only real choice unless budget is a real issue. Maybe the 5625, if a good deal presents itself.

    It's not glue starvation, that's a myth. Simply, the glue joint is an obvious fault line in the structure. Imagine tearing off a paper towel. They have a strong tendency to tear at the separation,...
