    My opinion and my practice whenever possible is to remove the burn marks, either via sanding or with a scraper and/or a hand plane. A stain blocking primer can certainly help but there's still no...

    My Oneida is similar, but instead of a small bag, it's a small steel canister that clamps on the bottom of the filter. There's rarely anything in it that matters.. unless I've been stupid. That...

    Wow..that's a VERY stout mobility solution! I guess the only thing that I would worry about normally would be an uneven floor, but that will not be an issue for the actual saw structure, for sure....

    Can you? Yes, you can. But Dave is correct that most dust collection cartridge filter systems have some kind of catch container on the bottom of the filters (when oriented vertically) that provide a...

    My understanding is that they are not using the debit cards for this round. But the previous one was from an bank that specializes in the same...just not one that most folks recognized as such.

    I like the idea of continuing the bamboo theme, Ole....I'm a fan of keeping things simple and uniform for this kind of thing, so I hope that you find a product that will do the job for you.

    I unfortunately have had to share your sadness with tree removal recently, including a couple of "yuge" ash near the house that had died from da bug and a crabapple in front of our home. The two...

    Air infiltration is always the number one thing that has to be addressed...if the leaks are meaningful, the insulation isn't going to matter as much. Lower R value, but very well sealed can be a good...

    There's an advantage even to "soft" pine flooring over plywood in that any minor damage from use doesn't reveal another layer under it like plywood would, pardon the expression. Our wide pine has...

    It's a nice saw. The price being asked is substantially higher than I would pay...I agree with Bruce to offer $400 and maybe settle at $500 if necessary. No issues with the fence...many folks...

    You ask a great question relative to processing the material...but you also need to ask yourself if you are using the right material. BB plywood, as nice as it is, still has a very thin veneer layer...

    I was going to mention what Frank did.

    One other thing...do the majority of your sanding before you cut the material down to short lengths or to final width. That makes it a lot easier and often...

    I agree with the trailer suggestion. The weight handling capacity of a pick-em-up truck bed isn't all that substantial unless you have a one ton and logs are uber-heavy due to how much moisture is in...

    When I used a few of them, I did have a fixture that seemed wonky and reversing the "tube" fixed it. That's why I mentioned it just for grins. :)

    Interesting....shielded Ethernet cables are a lot less common, but I can see the appeal for this application as they may be running very close to "noisy" cabins to components.
