    I'm not sure how a dishwasher compares to a fridge/freezer as far as thermal insulation, but I would think the inside will fluctuate as the temperatures do, but much much less. Give it a try. I like...

    I'm also heavily invested in the DW 20V line. I just picked up the RO sander. No, it's not as powerful as a corded one, but not dealing with a cord and having a cord drag over your freshly sanded...

    There is no equal to the SS. If you love it, and if you bash it. Space limited, you can do everything you want. If space is not a problem, then I'd pass. No other tool I think is as bullet proof. 25...

    If you were to google that question, there would be an array of opinions of "proper" lathe height. I would say Roger is right as a starting place. Some pro turners advocate a higher spindle height,...

    +1. This is it I think. I trip my tandem breaker on my 3/4 hp Delta bandsaw if I load it down on a cut.
    Move the wiring to a regular breaker slot and move the other wiring to the tandem. Should not...

    WOW!
    Pricey. They not very big. I can't think of anything off the top of my limited brain. Maybe a bottle stopper or duck call? Pens are always an option.

    Lots of new terms here. What a vape box?

    Use finer and finer grit sandpaper? Use a good brand of paper helps with grit consistency. Aren't we talking about small curved areas. A regular ROS will get al the other areas.

    Does it HAVE to be ROS? As others have already said, maybe just a drill and the small 2 or 3" pads will suffice. I been using mine for years. Well, not the same pad, but the system for years.

    Yup! ^^^ They are horrible.
    Best to toss it out and start fresh. And hope you can get rid of all the bugs that happen to be outside of the wood, if you have a real bad infestation.
