    I was an early adopter so I have a suite of the Bosch Colt stuff. I am very happy with them but if I were starting over I would go with the DeWalt. While it is true the plunge base is not much...

    Quality built veneered substrate panel doors are not anathema in the kitchen cabinetry world. Given many kitchen environments they may even be preferred IMHO.

    Dad ran a slightly wedge shaped piece of material into his, small end first, and it jammed . . . hard. Following this the height would change depending on depth of cut and I assume the associated...

    I will agree that the base becomes foggy with use as a scratch pattern appears. For this reason clear is not as important as one might think. That being said all but one of my bases is clear but I...

    I moved to a filter box years ago. The space savings over the stock barrel make the DD addition more reasonable. I have moved to a wall unit with a reel but, the same principle applies to a mobile...

    Very nicely done Ed. I'm another who uses sapwood as an aesthetic element. The painted interior shows off the goods and the clean lines let the crown draw the eye up. On top of that, cherry ages...

    A) Damaged in the accident (not likely)
    B) Functioning to HF specs (more likely)

    The upswing in poor and failed service is something new in my experience. I was always amazed that the USPS could do what they do for the price. Running it must be more of an art than a science. ...

    I have a long straight 1/2" that gets a lot of service. My favorite is a 3/8" crook neck though. Seems more versatile for the things I actually end up paring.
