    You can run VCP with 4GB RAM, so you shouldn't have any issues with the setup you mention. VCP/Aspire in general isn't really an intensive program other than rendering very complex 3D things at the...

    I believe you would need to make it as thin kerf tooling isn't generally used on these machines.

    The 10% is off Jet brand tools at many suppliers. It's a brand sale, not just a Woodcraft sale.

    Minimax owner, albeit a larger saw. (S315WS) I'm extremely pleased with the tools and the company. I also appreciate that it uses "standard" tooling on the arbor.

    Many phenolic products are very abrasive so you may need to use a specialized cutter rather than a more traditional end-mill. Amana has some as do other major tooling manufacturers.

    Ricc, great job!

    I'm going to move this thread to the Workshops area and slightly change the title so it's preserved rather than deleted as it would be in the Classifieds.

    Mark, the older generation must be on the bottom, but the newer ones will stack on top just fine. I don't know anything about the new version folks have mentioned at this point but it's unlikely that...

    Sand them smooth, slather with bondo, sand them again, paint. They were not designed to be tightened with something with teeth like that. Even the latest version would suffer from that. Tightening...

    Yes, for ripping it's not a terrible thing to play with the blade height to get the best combination of cutting and "mess". Only exposing the teeth near the top of the cut should likely keep a lot of...

    It's required here, too...stabilizes for flex, especially since spans tend to be longer these days than "back in the day" because folks don't want posts and bearing walls in the middle of things.

    Look at the tooth geometry between those two blades. The WW-II has sharper angles on the edges of the teeth and doesn't have a raker like a ripping blade does. The ripping blade makes "chips" in line...

    Most of the "mass market" tool brands are going to be very similar and many are made in the same factories. Parts often interchange between them no matter what the color or brand label. (but not...

    Tanos is the manufacturer (and in the same corporate family as Festool)...so if it's a "SysTainer", it's Tanos, regardless of the color or branding. They are all compatible with each other. So if...

    That's likely relative to the manufacturer and type. The leak detecting valve system that our washer connects to is default to "off" at all times unless the washer is asking for water. When the...

    I think it's very likely that over time there will be methods discovered that will provide a means to delay "aging" to some extent...not "immortality", but I do believe that the science community...

    Immunotherapy for cancer (and other things) is a hot bed in recent years...that article makes it seem like it's totally new. Perhaps their particular approach is, I don't know. This kind of treatment...

    Mirrorless is indeed the thing now in "big body" digital cameras. While I don't feel the need to take that leap, if I were buying new right now, no question, I'd buy mirrorless, either a Z6 or a Z7....

    I also have the Little Wizard and it works fine for metal in material that's not overly thick. It's not effective for things like reclaimed beams. A stronger wand like the larger ones used in Airport...

    Ric, just so you know, setting up a contactor is basically setting up a "switch"...no "electronics" in the deep technical sense is involved and a contactor has screw terminals. It really is pretty...

    Ditto what Mreza said...literally. Newer machine, same process.

    I wish I could help with the knife question, but my unit has a Tersa setup which requires no knife adjustment.
