    Project: Something Flat. Very flat.

    I have this room ready for Professor Dr. SWMBO to move her office into so I can do some major renovation work to the space it's currently located in. As we are sometimes prone to do here, I...

    If it's "wood on wood" and there will be no area rug, then contrast is your friend...and as folks mentioned, we need to visually understand the situation to provide more guidance.

    I would try the extender rather than the water, personally. You also need to be sure you're getting good atomization and not coating too heavily.

    I'd try and get conduit between the basement and the island...if you can't just poke it through to where you can get to it at the island side but you can manage to get a fish tape or other such thing...

    This is not an influenza virus. It's a coronavirus which is a very different thing. I agree that an effective vaccine may not be in the offing but for a different reason: vaccines for coronaviruses...

    Over time, you'll also begin to see a pattern on what you use the most, so those will tend to be parked "more convenient" than tools that are more rarely used which tend to end up tucked more out of...

    Changeover takes me like a minute...and mine is hand-cranked. But good planning is certainly very helpful anyway and a good practice even if one has separate machines. I do most of my face jointing...

    I honestly don't believe they were "lying"...it was too early in the process to actually know how the virus was being transmitted. There were some other pressures likely involved, too, but we're not...

    Since the damage materially affects the potential ability of the machine to work accurately, I'd get a replacement. If it was just cosmetic, I'd go for the discount.

    Scrape off the excess, preferably while it's still pliable, and you'll have zero issues with your planer knives. As Grant mentions, the dried glue is generally harder than the wood, but it still...

    Adam, you may very well find over time that the J/P will be your "forever machine". I can tell you that I have zero desire to give up mine for separates and it's been in my shop since the mid-2000s.

    I have a close friend that is unfortunately experiencing the "virus that keeps on giving" thing and it seems to be "something different" from person to person. Her followup issue that re-hospitalized...

    Dean, what you're going to do first is test the moisture content... ;) But you knew that! This is especially important for "backyard wood sellers" offering up slabs that are quite often pretty darn...

    I'm personally not optimistic about the concept of "herd immunity" for COVID-19 and also am tending to be less than optimistic about the long-term viability of a vaccine. Vaccines for corona viruses...

    Frank, it wasn't so long ago where code and other standards were not reinforced quite like they are these days. I'm not surprised that certain appliances were designed the way they were.

    A 2x3 or 2x4 is (or 1000x1000, etc) is generally considered a benchtop machine. Because of the tolerances necessary, they are not generally something you can hang on the wall when they are not in...

    Yea, I was actually looking at this recently because I have an old HF 14" bandsaw in my garage that a friend left with me when he moved to Idaho and it needs a motor so I can clean it up and sell it.

    Just the opposite...an oil or oil and wax finish, especially on a close grained species like cherry and maple, will greatly benefit from sanding to even extreme fine abrasives. The finish will be...
