    Back when bulb threads and lamp sockets were made of brass, I don't remember having much problem, but as has been said, everything today is made to a price. And we are paying it, in many ways.

    That Uni would make a great outfeed table, if there was that much room. I used to leave mine with a big rip blade or dado in it.
