    A nail puller would do that easier. I actually gave one away because the foot/lever was not a hook that could hang from a nail. I learned that about caulking guns years ago.

    A three phase dust collector should be able to be used as an extra idler motor for a converter setup. I know a big disk sander works that way. I am unsure if the load on a dust collector allows it...

    Powdered walnut shells are used to add grip to floor paint. Coarser grind is used to "sandblast" fine details without blasting them off.

    Further reading of the manual says parameter #6 options are "stop by itself" or "deceleration". I assume "stop by itself" is coast down with no braking. That avoids having to worry about...

    I have learned that I was tightening pipe fittings too hard. For 3/4NPT and below a 18" wrench is plenty with maybe 30-40 pound of pull. I had been over tightening by almost one full turn. Hand...

    I see used panel saws on C-list all the time for 500-1200. That seems like a decent price to consider compared to a dedicate track saw. How accurate are they?
