    Be careful. Repetitive Motion Injury is real.
    Vary your stance. Stretch often. Turn with your left (non dominant) hand. Turning with your left hand opens a lot of ways to turn difficult areas. Take...

    Isn't that why it's called a table saw? A saw that functions as a table? I actually did use it the other day with the blade spinning. Had to remove all the aforementioned tools/supplies and half...

    Something I learned the hard way. Just saw this thread, hope I'm posting before you cut. The blank must be SQUARE when you cut the angles for the knot. If it's not square, the knot will be off...

    I've done those Celtic Knots. I use Titebond I. I assume you will apply finish. Never had failures with I. If you are using the metal/o-ring type stoppers, for gluing the stopper to the wood, I use...

    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.

    IMO the Li Ion batteries and the brushless motors have changed the tool world. Not saying they compare to the power of a corded tool, BUT the freedom of being cordless is pretty good to have. I have...

    Eyes getting bad and needing more light. Not as strong as I once thought I was. I have maybe 10 pair of safety bifocals (a great thing to have) but I can never find most of them.

    If you don't need a nice smooth hole, I use those cheap spade bits. They can easily be sharpened. When I want to drill deeper holes, I use a ship auger bit (available from your local HD/Lowes). Not...

    Yup! Steep investment, but I think it may be better than trying to fix a bad blade.
    Also agree with JK that getting plane irons super flat is not really necessary. Although a Hock blade may come...

    I'm with Alex on this. I went through that choice when buying my lathe. Less swing Jet (save 1000 bucks or so) or more swing PM. I opted to get the less capacity Jet and spend the 1000 bucks or so on...

    I have 2 ideas. Do you have another Nova chuck body to try mounting the slides? The other idea is to install the slides loosely and fully close the chuck which should align the jaw set and then...

    I don't personally own a set, but I do have dumb question #1. Did you get the order right? I can't imagine both sets of jaws not seating correctly.
  15. The points should fit in between the chuck jaws...

    The points should fit in between the chuck jaws as mentioned before. True, you can't fit a 11/16 point to point inside a 5/8 hole, but a chuck is different.
    I'm in the camp that says you have a...
