    AFAIK you can just wire the motor straight to a power supply and run the SawStop without any safety features. There may be something preventing that, but I can't see how they'd prevent you from just...

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I'd like this to be removable if at all possible, and was hoping there was something similar to Timothy's suggestion but that was retained in place with a set screw or...

    You should be able to "whitelist" certain sites. With ublock origin I can whitelist a website in 2 clicks- one to open the menu and one to whitelist the site. Ctrl-click will whitelist just that page.

    I got my chisels in yesterday, thanks a ton. They were very well packaged and I can't wait to use them.

    You can get a 6" x 12" piece of MIC6 aluminum (super flat) from McMaster for $35 if you want to make your own Master Plate, though at $49 I'd probably just buy theirs since it's got a nice square...

    I have used the Dewalt adapter that lets you use new Dewalt batteries on old 18V Dewalt tools. It fits well and works fine, but I'm a DIY guy so I haven't exactly worn it out.

    I have heard that full face shields are meant to be worn over standard eye protection. Just a tip. I know the face shield I have is much weaker than my safety glasses, so it'll protect from...

    If you have a smart phone you have a 2-axis inclinometer. There are a bunch of levels/inclinometer apps out there. I like the Physics Toolbox ones on Android devices.

    Good to know! I don't think he had tried the Stanley from Home Depot. He had something really cheap and was spending a ton of time trying to get the sole flat and just wasn't making any progress. If...

    WTB: Low angle block plane

    I'm looking for a decent quality low angle block plane. Nothing fancy, just looking for a "user". It's for a friend of mine who needs one for a long class coming up. He's not huge into woodworking,...

    Yes definitely Kev, I was using the "royal you" there- I meant to say that in a general sense, a tube that is outputting more than its rating is being overdriven, either by a sketchy manufacturer or...

    Why would you expect your 80W laser to output 90W? It's an 80W tube. It should output 80W. If you're outputting 90W, you're probably overdriving something and prematurely damaging the laser.

    Yeah, you do it closed cabinet. I usually do it with the beam defocused onto the black square part a bit. Send a line to the laser and set the speed to something crazy slow so it doesn't move much-...

    That may work, but I think I need an actual structural piece to nail into for some of the areas. Since the original wall was thin panels, the new drywall is thicker, so I'm trying to take up the gap...

    I have some drywall up on some walls that used to be thin panels, and the gaps between the walls and the window frames are pretty large- 1/4"-1/2" in areas depth-wise (aka, when looking at the window...

    They are two different things, but they're both proportional to the cube of thickness. They're both functions of the moment of inertia, which has an h^3 term in it. A beam 2x as thick is both 8x as...
  24. Does anyone sell Exacto knife handle turning kits?

    See title. I'd like to turn my own handle for some Exacto knives, but I don't see any kits online. I could try to make up my own or just glue a standard one into a handle, but I thought I'd check to...
