    I had my 1.5 hp compressor in with my 3 hp Oneida for years and had no problems. Minimal dust in the closet, what was there was probably from emptying the filter or the drum. Definitely less fine...

    Hard to tell from the picture, but I see little ray flecks in the top, so probably maple. Oak and beech have fleck, but it doesn't have the grain of beech or the pores of oak.

    That is both cool and kind of terrifying. I could see the utility of it though, especially for trim work and small jobs.

    I do it freehand on my old Craftsman 6" grinder (handy skill from my machinist days), but my dad had a Drill Doctor that he used and it seemed to work well enough. Read the directions well though,...

    I've got the Kreg one that comes with the drawer slide and cup hinge jig combo kit. I actually like it, quite handy. It isn't the fanciest thing, but it gets the job done quickly and well enough. ...

    I will clean up rust on the bottom (frog side) of the iron, and run it briefly on something like a diamond stone to check for high spots, but I'm not going to lap it on a surface plate or anything...

    Either is fine; I'd go with whatever is easiest to put in. Myself, I would probably just screw 2 or 3 layers of whichever you chose onto the current frame, rather than mess around with glue. That...

    That where-do-you-put-your-limited-time thing is always the hard part:). It is even worse when you have everything (tools, materials, skills) except time. I quit doing my own car repairs years ago,...

    It is very individual. My current Frid bench is about 33" tall, and if I still did a lot of face and finish planing of boards, I would want it lower. Now, it is used more for joinery and holding...

    I wouldn't completely rule out building doors. I did these in less than a day. They are basically hinged walls; framed with studs and sheathed in OSB on both sides. There is even a vapor barrier on...

    It definitely looks like it is a real plane, whether it is all original parts to that plane I don't know either way. No idea what the seller wants for it, but unless you want it for collectable...

    The moisture content is the main thing to worry about first. Is it kiln dried to furniture requirements (somewhere down under 10%), or is it construction lumber dried only to 19%?

    I have the same jointer bought in Spring 2020; it looks identical (except the date sticker). I haven't felt the need to upgrade the cutter, and probably won't. It did come with a 4" port, although...

    I try to do the roundovers prior to machine sanding if I can, but sometimes it works better afterwards. I know the grit is probably bad for the router bits, but I use the inexpensive Rockler brand...

    I recently got a 5" Deros with a 5mm stroke. The only time I have gotten swirl marks was when I was being (too) aggressive using 80 grit to pull off a finish. I wasn't exactly using good technique...

    If they are being painted, I would skip the spar varnish, use an actual, oil-based primer and then paint. I'm not really sure what would be gained with the spar varnish; the primer is all you need.

    What equipment you have and how it is set up for dust collection comes into play as well, as does duct length size, etc. If your table saw or planer can only functionally use 300 cfm or 500 cfm, it...
