    If I were buying new on your budget I'd get the Laguna 18BX. They're currently on sale for 10% off at around $1799. Great features and I've been really impressed with the build quality. The ones I've...

    Here's how I do it. I make a convex curve to match the radius of the piece you're putting the dado into. Using a slotting cutter, I tack it to a scrap piece with a cutout and move it push it through...

    That almost looks like that section was skipped in the grinding process at Lenox. Some of the carbide is visibly wider on some teeth than on the rest.

    I went back and compared the wording in the LT18 manual to the wording in the 18BX manual. It appears to be copied and pasted. Both say they're crowned, but again, I would be surprised to see it on...

    I thought the same thing. Googled it and the manual says they're crowned. I'd still double check it. That's a big bandsaw to have crowned tires.

    It's a centering cone for a router base. Chuck it up into the collet and loosen the screws on the base and use it to align the base concentrically with the spindle.

    Jim brings up a good point. If I make another, and I most likely will, I would fit the arms to the side assemblies much differently than I did. I would take the completed arms and make templates off...

    I agree with Jamie on the springback on laminations that thick. I made mine ⅛" and core banded the edge to hide the glue lines. I then went over the top with one last lamination covering the banding...

    Follow up. I picked up my new saw in Albuquerque Friday morning. Kind of a nerve-wracking drive home and off-loading process, but it's in its new home and I'm really pleased. It's one of the only...
