    The 2x3 scrap was less than a foot long. But I will not do this again holding the piece regardless of length. I will clamp it down - or just risk damaging the insert. I make my own so the cost is...

    I had never gotten a cut from my table saw for the first 40-50 years I used one until last year. Fortunately I messed up with a SawStop so I only got a broken bone in my finger and six stitches. I...

    My bandsaw experience is mostly with the two I've owned. My first was a "Gil built" home made 12 inch. It was pretty bad and went to the dump when I moved to the current house. I had to put the...

    I've worked out of a garage I also parked cars in before but I find a dedicated shop garage to be far preferable. My current shop is 14x24. I once pushed all the tools back into the end opposite...

    I have and like my thin kerf Freud Fusion but occasionally it seems to aggrevate the grain and the cut is rough. Not sure what is happening or even that a different blade would be different. But I...

    I agree about walnut. If it gets in sunlight, it goes pale. If out of direct sunlight this process is very slow, however. I have a couple walnut pieces 20 years or more old that are still dark. ...

    I have not replaced the laminated piece on the left side of the fence. It works OK. I got it perpendicular to the saw top and just accepted that in the rare even I rip on the left side of the saw...

    I have used a mid sized PC router, a PC690, in a router table before and it worked. But the limited power meant more cuts doing things like panel raising. But cope and stick for doors was OK with...

    I have the XL with Seneca adapter and bits from 5mm to 14mm. The only bit made by Festool is the 12mm it came with. The 14mm is Amana and the others are CMT. I broke two 14mm CMT bits but all the...

    I am making some dining room chairs and decided that was enough reason to invest in the Rigid spindle/belt sander. But I couldn't find one. Wen had one similar - seems to be functionally...

    I haven't used my old biscuit jointer much after getting my Domino XL but I agree, cutting slots is lot like cutting mortises. The resulting joints are significantly different, of course. Even for...

    I do not have or want either device. I do not do a lot of vertical cuts into boards but I also clamp a guide across the workpiece when I do. I don't think the domino needs any jigs to plunge...
