    Cast iron is more rigid than aluminum, it is also more wear resistant and better absorbs vibrations. I like aluminum for many things but not table tops where material will be fed over it constantly.

    If they only knew that it sells for $15/bf in NJ. That is some very fine firewood.

    Thanks, Patrick! Very much appreciated!

    There is something about wooden machinist tool boxes that I enjoy. I plan to make a few more here and there.

    Made one recently from some spare material for my depth gauge. The original box was spray painted and looked horrendous.

    Exactly as Jim shows, it's actually rift sawn with straight grain showing all all faces. Not the easiest thing to acquire in its truest form. Often enough I'm happier with Quartersawn for panels.

    I agree, I think they should be sold more along the lines of what their purpose is but not much I can do to change that.

    That actually describes my work because I have a long lead time for...

    Mike, I saw one of those recently and it looked to be made mainly of cast iron, is that the case?

    I think creep also must be affected by design and accuracy of fit ups.

    I have a table in front of me that has been in direct sunlight hours a day, made with Titebond III that shows nothing of...

    That’s true, the baldor in the Ulmia is much quieter than the euro single phase motors in the bandsaw and planer. The European 3ph motors are nice and quiet.

    Willard Brothers has some on-hand last I checked with them, they can also order it and what they’ve gotten for me has been exceptional quality.

    That doesn’t surprise me, 3ph motors run more quietly.

    No weird noise, just generally a bit loud. Sheet metal machines transmit more vibration from the motor than cast iron.

    It's not at all like mahogany in person in my experience. Very pink, I haven't noticed it to do anything wild over time except get slightly darker.

    That'll be a labor of love, no doubt.

    Couple thoughts come to mind: Will the table clean up? If not do you have access to someone who runs a metal planer? Second though is that people don't...

    Joe, that’s a nice little saw. How’s the noise level on it compared to the Aggazani?

    I like my MM20 but it is much louder than I had expected and I wonder if that is typical of sheet metal saws.

    John, I took mine apart to bring it into the basement. Literally down to nuts and bolts. Those saws are not overly complicated.
