    Assuming their local code doesn't require an air gap.
  2. Unfortunately, I'm not in an area where I can...

    Unfortunately, I'm not in an area where I can easily get a used saw (and the shipping on that would be prohibitive). I do have a bandsaw, but the prospect of ripping many long face frame components...
  3. DeWalt table saws – DWE7491RS vs DWE 7485

    I'm in the market for a table saw for, basically, just ripping lumber. I have a track saw for sheet goods, but I'm going to be building quite a few face frames in the near future, so I'd like a...

    Looks great. I have one on order that I'm eagerly awaiting. How did you close the spine on the plate?

    My understanding is that mild steel just doesn't have enough carbon to harden, assuming the OP means something like 1018.

    I have only ever discovered the "defect" on one other Veritas second – and it was after three years of regular use, and only because I had completely disassembled the tool to do a deep cleaning and...

    No worries, Rob! I appreciate that you have the seconds sale every year. My workshop's a fair sight better equipped because of it. Cheers.

    No harm, no foul. LV has the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with – and this is the first of the many seconds I've bought that had any issues. Veritas tools are still the best...

    Perhaps 1/16th from flat at the worst spot, with a visible deformation extending over about a square centimeter. I dislike lapping and my tool rehab queue is already overfull, so I'm sending it back...

    Not a metalworker or a blacksmith, but you're probably not going to get a usable tool with mild steel. There are apparently some weird quenching solutions that can give you some hardness, but mild...

    Yup, loosening the cap was what ended up making the difference for me – my mediocre skills can now set the lateral adjustment with ease.

    I got my Custom 4-1/2 today and was a little surprised – it looks to my eye like the defect was that the casting was dropped and one of the corners of the sole was warped, so the sole isn't flat. ...

    Kind of an odd thing to be hostile about – there's nothing wrong with trying to improve the performance of a tool, aside from the fact that a lot of otherwise serviceable vintage tools often need a...

    Having read a number of your articles and posts, I think you're entitled to use some more cooperative wood occasionally. Pictures of woods like jarrah and fiddleback marri make me happy that my...

    Derek, I'm quite envious of the results you get with those terrifying Australian woods, and not at all envious of the work you have to do with them. ;)

    It looks like right now (Thursday morning) there are still 20 tpi dovetail saws available!

    I imagine there's a lot of happy people out there right now – for my part, I wasn't expecting to be able to find a Custom 4-1/2 until next year.
