    Brian

    Everything is "fixable". Just a matter of time, skill and money, but no worries, I understand exactly what you mean.
    175' of driveway is a lot of area to deal with. I think if possible you...

    I have 10 cords stacked about 30' feet from the house. I've stacked it there since 1993, and haven't seen termites in the house.
    I use 5 cords each winter, so I am always one "green" cord ahead....

    Nick

    Something is wrong. Your machine should be able to do what you want it to do. You won't be able to do production runs, but if this is for your own use, such as house projects, it should do...

    Jared
    No arguments there, but given the weight, 2500lbs., and the need to get it off the trailer, an engine hoist would not be rated for that load in a dynamic application.
    2500lbs is a lot of...

    You will find that to be an invaluable tool, as long as it is made well.

    An engine hoist will not be strong enough. You need either a rolling transom, or gantry lift, a fork lift, or the trailer will need to be backed under an overhead lift.
    To be brutally honest, hire...

    I don't like them either. They're used everywhere here, and pass inspection as is, but they're cheap. I'd rather have metal also.

    Tom

    If you were my neighbor, I'd thank you for option #2 and tell you to test run the generator whenever you want to, as long as it's daylight outside.
    You're a very considerate neighbor My...

    Keith

    It's the cost versus benefit for me.
    I don't do enough work with sheet goods to justify. Actually, if I never had to cut another piece of plywood, or MDF, in my life, that would be just...

    Mark
    Do you happen to remember which brand you used, and what the time interval to failure was? I installed two of them over a decade ago on our water heater, and to date they have been fine. Of...

    Absolutely. I purchased my Festool TS 75 for just that reason. I needed to cut a 32" wide, 17' long, piece of Padauk that was just over 2" thick. The slab had a slight cup to it,maybe an 1/8"...

    Are you looking at the Amana insert head? I know that it's fairly tall. If so you may want to look at the selection from Byrd. Theirs are in differing lengths and have a smaller radius than...

    Gas for the range top, or stove. No question there. You cannot install an electric stove top, in a normal residential application, that can even begin to compete with gas, btu for btu. Gas wins,...

    My Rolair JC 10 has the drain at about the 5:00 position. That compressor I do depressurize when I'm done with it, and then tilt it to get any accumulated moisture out of it. I rarely use...

    Mark
    If you're going to use an auto drain, don't set it up to open after every cycle. The moisture in the tank needs to condense first and then gravity will cause it to collect in the low spot....

    The key is stabilizing the material through the jointer. You need to cobble together some additional infeed and out feed supports to take the weight of the material out of your hands.

    This is definitely different than on a well system.

    I modified the snow blower by closing the gap between the impeller, and housing, with rubber gasket material. I've never had the chute clog, it's always been the impeller housing that was the cause.
