    From everything you've said it sounds like you should buy a turbine rig.

    Nor is 6cfm very high; fine for a small gun doing small work, but I recommend you get a system that will handle your larger projects. That means a HVLP gun at some point where you'll need 10 scfm at...

    A large advantage of a conversion gun is being able to regulate pressure both to the cup and the gun, independently, and to extreme levels. Another is the air is cool unlike a turbine unit which...

    Several folks here use the Qualspray AM-6008 gun. It's a very versatile set up and can spray everything from water based dyes to ProClassic (w/o much thinning). I've had one for about 5 years now...

    Those horizontal marks in the first photo are from the tooling used to flatten the slab. I'm not sure what the cross grain marks are in the second photo; perhaps the same type of marks from the...

    Apple is one of the hardest fruitwoods I know of. It's difficult to mill and loves to twist and split when it dries. My planer protested when I planed some. Cherry and pear are far nicer to work...

    I've never seen a good reason to use spring joints. The argument about needing fewer clamps is false if you believe the glue manufacturers who tell you you need a clamp nearly as close together as...

    [QUOTE=Matt Roberts PA;3088224]No glue. The battens are screwed with 1.5" screws, each hand tightened. I'm rather confident they're tight.

    I managed to take a photo of the one board I oriented...

    Maple or birch iron on veneer tape will work well for the plywood edges. Both take paint well.

    If the boards for each leg have the same grain orientation it should be fine long term. But if one of the boards is QS and the others are plain sawn, or the other way around, they are going to fight...

    ProClassic should spray great with your airless rig. I really like Emerald Urethane Trim paint but it's an oil modified product, like BM's Advance, so whites are likely to yellow over time. That...

    His heating cycle must be more involved than what he told you or he's just lucky. I follow EBAC's drying schedule and often start with AD wood. Using their cycle the maximum heating rate is 25F /...

    I had that exact application in my kitchen remodel. When I built the kitchen 25 years ago I used paper backed veneer and glued it to the Melamine cabinet sides with contact cement. Never had a...

    You will be OK with any waterborne product and probably with any hand applied finish except lacquer. Oil based varnish will stink for a long time, however, even if not an explosion risk when hand...

    If you want structural strength I suggest you use Baltic birch plywood. It's almost universally available in 5 x 5 ft sheets, and 4 x 8' sheets by some suppliers.

    That must depend upon where you live or how the wood is stored. Here in NY I have never had a problem with bugs getting into my ash lumber, green or dry.

    Absolutely. I've made lots of cabinets with both plywood and Melamine with nothing more than glue and biscuits. Never has a single joint come loose or broken.

    Yes indeed. That guard costs almost as much as I paid for my used FS-30. I know you can't put a price on bodily parts, but basic guards and situational awareness has worked well for about 40 years....

    No offense, but you would do well to heed Joe C's advise. It's a simple solution and won't show when done. If you try drilling the hole and something goes wrong there is no easy remedy.

    Ash is pretty forgiving but as you just read it will stain and/or support mold growth if given a chance. Sticker it properly so air can flow through it and put a rain cover on top and it will be...

    Actually, you can use yellow glue with MDO. Just rough up the surface a little with 100 grit and it glues fine.
