    There are several reasons why I use cauls over veneer on the top side of a panel, especially with thin sliced veneer. I also use a caul under the veneer and over a grooved base platen, but that is...

    I used to work with a guy who had used one. As I recall he said it was useful for variable spaced dovetails. I guess you will find out how it works for you, but the price sounds right.

    I would avoid the IGaging dro. I had the same problems as Bill plus the unit failed after a couple of years. I never did find any documentation online for setting it.

    Wixey is ok I think but the...

    I'm not familiar with peelply, but a caul that sticks to the veneer seems like a bad idea. I typically use lightly waxed 1/4" or 3/8"melamine coated particleboard on flat work. For curved layups I...

    Applied side means a separate walnut veneered panel added to the prefinished interior panel. On frameless boxes the applied panel can be in plane with the doors, showing a matching edgeband. If your...

    Mark makes a good point. I mainly use ca for small repairs where clamping is difficult or for filling small checks, occasionally between two strips of blue tape for workholding.

    A perennial problem. Do you have wall space for a divided shelf unit that would allow storing your short drops on edge, ends out? That will allow for seeing and accessing what you have. It could have...

    Ca glues cure by reaction to small amounts of water in the joined material. If your wood is very dry that may not happen or take a long time. Thin formulations may wick into the wood and starve the...

    I have eight 5" x 18" Jorgensens and they are bomber but wicked heavy. The 3 1/2" throat ones are a good compromise. The 2 1/2" though are fine for most of my tasks and light enough to not distort...

    One suggestion I would make is to hang the cyclone as high as possible on the wall. The longer the drop to the dust bin the more margin you have against clogging the filters in case of an accidental...

    I don't see a problem with that. If you are concerned you could use a shallower mortise in that area and a shorter domino.

    Favorites? Cherry, walnut and hard maple. For practice- poplar, alder, soft maple- something you can afford to mess up. I imagine lumber brought in from outside is pricey - what can you get locally?...

    No matter the mass of the saw or one's familiarity with it, the blade design does matter - a 0 degree or negative rake angle blade on a radial saw is easier to control than a positive rake angle...

    I prefer the clutch clamps because the heads will maintain position while being put in place. With the other kind I sometimes wish I had a third hand. They are simpler though.

    I have dozens of Jorgensen clutch style f clamps, 2 1/2", 3 1/2" and 5" throat. The old ones are still great, but the half dozen 2 1/2" #35s I bought a few years ago are a real pain to use. The...

    I suppose if you can't get a drilled hole the right size you could sand down the anchors a bit.

    Epoxy is expensive but it has many applications in woodworking and a very long shelf life.

    I agree in principle, but I (just barely) have room for a slider, and Mark doesn't. If he can wait and find as smoking hot a deal on a high end miter saw as you got on your machines he should be a...

    I don't think I'd use JB Weld for either application as it is a putty consistency and won't penetrate the wood to any degree. I use marine epoxy to wet out the wood and thicken it with various...

    The product data sheet shows the drying time to touch as 2 hrs @ 77*F. You are probably just getting some dust in the finish as it cures. Try a faster drying material....
