    I've got a riser in my bandsaw with no alignment pins. It was a little tricky to get it all put together and tightened down (it kept wanting to move), but I used a straight edge to get the wheels...

    I bought some hickory to get started on dining chairs (and after those a table). Something around 40 bf of 8/4 and 20 bf of 4/4. Holy cow that stuff was heavy. It was hard enough to get the 8/4 up...

    Central Ohio here. Walnut is around $6-7, and maple and white oak are pretty consistent around $4. It can vary though, the lower cost sawmill near me can go from slim pickings to having the...

    I've got the Bosch ros65vc, and when I bought it I also made the jump to the mirka abranet system. It amazes me how little dust is produced now, even without running the shopvac on it. Before I...

    I'll also be jumping on the dw735 bandwagon. It's a very nice machine, being able to run stock faster is great for saving time (especially when I make loose tenons, I can take a piece of scrap down...

    I'm not an expert on solvents, but I'd personally avoid acetone because it does a number on plastic. Not sure how rubber would fare, but I'm guessing that its gonna try and eat the rollers just the...

    Yep, the more they trip the lower the actual rating becomes IIRC. If you trip a breaker or a GFCI too many times it'll trip more easily the next time. Looks like a replacement part for the DW735...

    Never noticed anything left on after. I dampen a rag and wipe it down. More elbow grease with the rag, and less mineral spirits. Based on all the internet arguments over cleaning them, I figured...

    Mineral spirits here as well. Only had to do it once, after a bunch of SYP. A few hundred BF after that and they still look nice and clean.

    Its not the number of teeth, its the shape of the disc between them. That one is big and round. Compare it to the DW7670 which has huge cutouts between the chipper teeth and is recommended for the...

    Where is your shop? If you need to get the saw up or down and steps or similar, you might not be as happy moving a super heavy ICS in there. If you can back a trailer in to drop the saw off of, I'd...

    3/8" x 6tpi timberwolf on my 12" hitachi. I'll break out the 1/4" x 10tpi for tighter curves/thinner material (rarely cut anything below 3/4") and the 1/2"x2/3tpi for resawing.

    I've found for any cut where I need to pick up my gripper, or the push stick (and it's a narrow cut), I'll lower the blade and run through the operations I'll do when the saw is on. That way I can...

    They're fairly uncommon until they happen to you (I don't know an actual scientific number off hand, no pun intended). If the saw is worth it to you or not will always be a personal choice. I own...

    Our intent is to seat 4 normally, and originally I had wanted 40x48. Once we laid it out we realized that going square would leave us some more room for board games when it's closed and it fit our...

    I agree, I adjusted my wheels to be coplaner on my Hitachi bandsaw when I put a homemade riser block in. It cuts unbelievably better with them aligned. I shouldn't ever have to mess with that...

    Yea, you nailed it. People either love it, can't afford it, or think they're immune to a mistake costing them a finger. My PCS is amazing, wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Depending on the piece size, I'd either make a jig and plunge router mortises to use a loose tenon, or I'd use the edge guide on my router and cut the 4 sides. I've done the later before for bed...

    I don't have a tenon jig (I use a dado) but lots of people in the sawstop user's group all report it works just fine. Just be careful where the metal bits are.

    You should be fine. 1.5x the bed length is a good rule of thumb. I've got a 6' jointer and have flattened some decently warped 8' boards on it just fine.
