    A jointer is critical in my shop. I don't want to diddle around with a sled and a thickness planer to take cup and twist out of every single board. I want to lay it on the jointer and make accurate...

    I'd hate myself for going to one of those little portable saws every time I turned it on. Those universal motors scream about like an old Craftsman shop vac. Your neighbors will agree every time...

    For a while they were sold exclusively through Woodcraft. I think they closed out there stock around 2008-2009. Haven't heard about it since.

    Sure it will work, just don't line up the post with the surface you are cutting. The space may not optimal, but it will work.

    Not exactly final sanding, but as close as I can get. Definitely all the flat panels, but always have to bring something flush and break over sharp edges after the full glue up.

    The softer the abrasive wheel the better, it will wear away faster and constantly exposing fresh abrasive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9-gmHf_Amw

    It's my opinion that the moisture settles on the cast iron. In our farm shop, if you left a crescent wrench on the drill press table, you could see a clear outline of the wrench while the rest of the...

    Why does it need to be magnetic? Seems like a piece of 1/8" hardboard would do the same thing, and cheaper.

    I'll vote for the Rikon. I have no problem resawing with 2hp, but if I have more than 3 boards to resaw it's very unusual. Rikon has great customer service.

    If the Robust stem really does get in your way, you can rotate it 180 degrees and have the offset face the bowl. Then you have all the room you want to drop the handle.

    Should you ever get some sort of burr or nick, a diamond honing stone will clean it up nicely.

    I've only made one. You'll need an astragal on the semi fixed door so you can use a good bulb seal and make it air tight. I used two flush mount bolts since the single door was plenty wide for...

    I'm sure the originals hoops would have been forge welded in a blacksmith shop. You could use flat head rivets you didn't want to weld it. But you would have to taper the steel to keep it smooth...

    I think I've read there are over 500 species of oak around the world. Commercially they are sold as either red or white. There is going to be a wide range of colors!

    Anything in the scrap rack. The one exception is when I do an entrance door. I use the same as the door then. Just a hedge against the crazy conditions that the wood sees.

    I've probably made a mile of my own floating tenon material. I just rout a 45 chamfer on the edges. You don't loose any strength since its mainly short grain, it's located by the small flat on the...

    My guess would be an instant layer of melted paint on the abrasive. Heat and paint makes goop. Probably wouldn't last a foot in a wide belt.

    If you Google that, you will have days of reading. There are 2 versions of 46-460. Version I had a switch more on the back of the control box. Amazon even stopped shipping those because such a high...

    You might be planing an asphaltum based paint. Heat will do no good for your planer and could very easily result in having to strip down the entire machine to clean the gummy paint off of everything!...

    Mark, you're tagging on to a 3 year old post. Might be better to start anew!

    I don't understand that thing at all. It looks like they are sliding the chuck mounting shaft. I don't see any place where they mention travel. Can't be much!

    I'm a huge fan of Forrest sharpening. I had a Freud stack dado set ruined by a local service. Chippers came back all different diameters so I got a sawtooth bottom surface.
