    Brent,

    Jack,

    What do you mean by "pulled from the wrong side"?

    A roller stand or similar supporting the stock front and back would be helpful.

    I used a Unisaw side table that became surplus when I added an Excalibur crosscut table. I mounted it to the shaper with a 4" c-channel standoff to give the powerfeeed enough room to work. If I could...

    That is an excellent price even without a powerfeed. For the weight, it is a much more solid machine than a Delta "heavy duty" or Powermatic 27 as it has a solid one piece spindle extending through...

    Don't expect to clean up cured epoxy with acetone.

    Woodworking epoxies are inherently gap-filling- with no solvent they don't shrink when curing and are strong. A poorly fitted joint that has the...

    Especially on a dense hardwood like maple, epoxy relies on a rough surface for adhesion. Saw or sand mating surfaces to no more than 80#.

    Congratulations on the new saw, Dave. Once you get used to it it will make things a lot easier. I envy you the space that allows for keeping the cabinet saw.

    " Can't give it a bigger motor?"

    The Origin is operated by manually steering it along a path indicated on an onboard screen. As long as it is guided within the path deviations from the programmed...

    The shop I used to work at has a Shaper Origin which they have found useful. They still hire me for cnc work so obviously it is not a universal solution. It is very low powered (think trim router)...

    I used these slides recently while helping out another shop with a deadline. They are more rigid than the Blum Tandems they usually use so better for wide drawers. Otherwise not so hot- the back...

    I don't think this forum is the wrong place for this thread, as "power tools" do need accurate setup which involves more or less precise measuring tools.

    My first reaction was " This is a bit...

    Accurate results require positive holding of the workpiece in a flat plane, which seems to be missing here. An interesting concept but needs work.

    The o.p. said "I can usually cut a 4x8 into 8 pieces of 24" rounds (well 23.5" each instead)."

    Any cutting method is going to require some sanding depending on the finish requirements. If the...

    I'm with Mel. If the stock is flat and the joints cut square and clamped up without distortion the result will be a flat panel. I glue up on top of parallel blocks on a flat bench rather than relying...

    What species of mahogany are you working with that is so ornery?

    I got by without one until last week when I was asked to run some baseboard with 3/8" stopped grooves for air movement. Tough to clean up the mill marks with anything else. That and clean flush cuts...
