    Same for me Mike, Construction Master is my most used app. Quite a while ago I tried several woodworking apps but found them mostly useless.

    Nice get Tony! I watched one run moulding sat the Martin factory and it was excellent quality. No idea though if you loose anything planing. Seems like the 15 is a better choice than the 25 for...

    Mike, I don’t think it would be worth it to re size a $100 cutter. It’s not that straight forward and if you do it best to find a shop experienced at that and understands the ISO clearances for...

    Jeff,
    No name on it. I think it came from Woodworkers Supply in NM many years ago. It’s handy but wish the magnet was stronger. Seems like a dust port on a moveable arm would be good. I have seen...

    Kevin,
    I dropped in from the front for many years also without incident. We even had the Aigner stops for a while before I looked at the instructions on the stop. It is a lot safer and the cut...

    Hi Mike,
    in the video he shows dropping in from the front. You will get away with this on small cuts but gets very dangerous on larger cuts even with a back stop. You should have a wide stop at the...

    Iíve watched that video and think it is pretty lame. The safe way to do this on the shaper is to have a wide stop at the tail and drop the front in with the tail supported. This way you can ease into...

    This little Frommia is the smoothest running saw I have encountered. I tried to buy it off the owner of a German shop but he would not part with it!. As Darcy mentions Baurele is a good one.
