    The CEC has a provision for fishing cable in an inaccessible space - you don't need to support it. Does the NEC have something similar?

    I've never understood why that was allowed under US code. No current over the bonding conductor has always been a sacred cow for as long as I've been electricianing (45 years)

    Resale value on SawStop is quite high, so that demo price seems reasonable. I'd go for it myself, but only you can decide how shiney & new you want your saw. If you go new, a few months down the road...

    I wouldn't hold my breath waiting to hear back from Delta customer service, nor would I even consider buying any new Delta machine.

    I wonder if the architect really knows what he wants. I've never seen rotary cut walnut veneer, probably because that would be a horrendous waste of fine wood. There's lots of rotary cut red oak out...

    I remember the video, but I think it was a frame & panel door he made. Good video & a very knowledgeable guy. Wouldn't that video still be up somewhere here? He had a small YouTube channel with the...

    In addition to what Jim said, you should apply the same thickness veneer to the reverse side of the plywood to avoid bowing with humidity changes. Use the good stuff on the show side & the reject...

    And the furnace I have in the shop, which I got out of an old house about 20 years ago is at least 50 years old, with its original motor. Just bushings.

    Actually, there was an improvement in that there used to be trace amounts of dust that would collect in the cabinet, but that has been reduced to just about none. The blade shroud still works as it...

    It seems so odd to go to the expense of insulating well & then blowing all that conditioned air outside. Filters work very well at cleaning that air & saving the energy.
