    I enjoyed the video, but was pretty bothered by omissions.

    I was disappointed that it skipped two important sections. The most important was when it went from a ball with stubs on the end not yet...

    A lot of sources I have read say it is okay for the outside of the bird house, but not the inside. My preference is to use wood that weathers well and to not paint, but I think many folks paint the...

    Glad you found something you like. I worked with Spanish cedar before and it was nice to work with. Mine came from Groff and Groff.

    Yes, great choice, easy to work, weathers super well, and fairly easy to find here on the gulf coast, but I doubt he will find any there in PA.

    Yeah, cedar, white oak, maybe black locust are possible options, but as has already been mentioned ask them. They may suggest something interesting. Groff and Groffs is another source not too far...

    The finished plane is nice and works well. As I said the filing was a pain and I'd rather find some tubing that fit the blade better with no filing or at least less filing. That or maybe use some...

    One other thing I'll mention. Timing of when you run it is a factor for many of us in how offensive the noise is. Also there is a risk of meltdown or even a fire if a compressor has a leak and...

    What is the belt sander using the air for? At a glance it looks like just for pneumatic activation and controls. I'd guess it needs very little in the way of cfm. I assume if that were not the...

    Different strokes, but when used stuff costs much more than half the same exact model can be had for new, I start thinking new. If a used tool needs much work I will pay less than that. True that...

    Wow, I have never had a problem with breakage at the seam on 4" belts. I have worn out many a belt with the seam still intact. Maybe I have been lucky.

    Good, thanks. I'll use it a bit and then decide if I just need one or two narrow blades or a full set. The expense of the set may be overkill for me. I almost ordered the 1/2" and a 1/4" and...
