    That Flexzilla reel is very good. I've had one for a couple of years now. The Menards price is sure good. Up north the cheapest they are is an eye watering $188. Of coarse, that's in monopoly money.

    It's inexpensive, strong and holds screws well. Summertime humidity isn't usually above 40%, except for short term weather events. Sometimes my shop gets quite humid in the winter from snow melt off...

    Yes, I agree. I think it's because the acrylic tends to get soft & grippy on the edges from the heat. You do not want to use a push stick, but rather some kind of push block that will hold the sheet...

    Yes, the hole will be too small for many router bits. Some questions:
    - How is the router secured to the plywood top?
    - What do you have to reinforce the plywood?
    - How will you change the router...

    The one problem I did have with the paint was that where I'd used latex caulk to seal up gaps, the paint went kinda sticky, so those areas had dust & dirt stick to them. I went over them with Bin &...

    A universal motor speed is independent of line frequency, so that wouldn't work for this. I am almost certain that there is no such thing as a 3 phase line voltage hand held router.

    That would be $600 down the drain. Why does he want a jobsite saw? They are inferior in almost every way to a contractor saw (which the Ridgid is), except for the portability. The extra 2A that the...

    Another option would be to use a 7.25" thin kerf circular saw blade. They are available in almost paper (well, cardboard) thin widths. There would still be about 2" of cut capacity.

    I disagree. To cut through a given thickness of wood requires the same power whether the blade is 9" or 10". Slowing down the feed rate will help, but at the risk of burning and, well, taking longer...

    I'm not aware of any direct drive saw that is 240V capable. In any case, that would only help if you were running it with a very long extension cord. The real answer is a more capable saw, but the...
