    Right. If money is an issue, those are good choices.

    So it should still be under full warranty; contact your vendor for how to proceed. Itís not your problem to fix, itís theirs.

    Um, they make more than one. The one I have meets expectations for a ďfine-woodworking-gradeĒ crosscut, that rivals what you could expect from a decent table saw. Thatís not something Iím going to...

    The OP doesnít say _which_ miter saw it is. The cuts from my DW780 are dead nuts square, as far as the eye can see without a loupe. So the saw is capable of that with proper setup, and I donít think...

    Isnít that sick. Price increases as a sales tactic during a pandemic. Is there no sense of shame there, or is it just a complete disconnection from reality.

    If you don’t need the refinishing stuff, then go with the NON-Rotex sanders, they’re better balanced and lighter, and IMO perform better for finish sanding (I have them all.)

    Yeah. Sharpen the blade and put the plane to use. People make it out to be harder than it is. Just use the plane, ask questions later.

    Anywhere from a few weeks to 20 years. I still have a stack of white oak from back when I used to use more of it, stickered in my storage room.

    The wood is going to tell me what it wants to be. The divergence of that intention from whatever somebody is asking of you, can be somewhat amusing.

    Nobody in their right mind would think that an unglued Domino is a strong joint, used as a joint. (There could be pathological exceptions.)

    But your claim that a properly pinned M&T joint is not...

    Also, repairability. And also, in some cases, resilience. (Assuming the joint was intelligently constructed.)

    It all depends on how strong the joint _needs_ to be, which people often overlook when...

    If a #6 will get the job done for jointing smaller pieces, there’s no need for a giant beast like the #8 (or even the #7.) The vintage #8 is heavy, I can barely imagine how heavy the LN version would...

    Differences in deflection with length are a function primarily of beam depth here. The Yost HD parallels have a greater beam depth than comparable Bessey K-bodies, so in fact are _less_ ďflexyĒ than...
