    Folks, this is a steal, and that Lie-Nielsen twin screw vise is the most awesome wooden chop vise ever. I have one on my bench. It does not rack. It just simply doesn’t rack.

    Jets are inefficient and the only real advantage is shallow water capability. Get an outboard- easier to use and maintain, and when the time comes, easier to replace. I’m a huge fan of inboard...

    I thought cutting the stiles to the arch would be difficult, but a simple jig with one deck screw as a pivot point made it simple on this beast of a bandsaw. I was a bit worried because if the arch...

    It sounds to me like the brushes are bad or fouled with sawdust. Aside from that, how “clean” is the power where you live? We have horrible dips and surges here, and it destroys electronics. I put...
