    I have used dominos with drawbores as well. No need for clamps in that case as the drawbore pulls the joint together tight and keeps it tight even if the glue should later fail. 30mm is probably too...

    Yes! Have used both Mirka Abranet disks and the new DeWalt mesh disks. Predictably, the Abranet performance is superior. Be sure to use an interface pad between the sander and the disk.

    Thanks David! I used the snap-blade knife with the blade extended pretty far to cut around each tool. The Kaizen foam is layered - you can dig down with a couple fingers and pull out enough to fit...

    Sorry, $1600 for the table, an additional $6-800 for the top? I imagine this is capable of lifting heavier loads than Timothy Willets' MFSC, but costs 4-5 times as much and doesn't appear to be...

    Blue painter's tape is about 0.1 mm thick, I believe. A couple of thicknesses on the high side of the fence would even things out.

    In addition to the differences in size and robustness that others have pointed out, note that the tablesaw guides are spring-loaded so that they can accommodate moderate differences in thicknesses.

    I find that mine is a good little finish sander - excellent dust pickup and easy to control. However, with it's small (3mm) orbit, it is not a good all-rounder sander. If I were limited to a single...

    You should by OK. When gluing up, apply glue to the miters, let it soak into the end grain for a few minutes, then apply again. To get some pressure across the joints, you can tack on triangular...

    The 1250DEVS is similar to the Festool Rotex in allowing you to use either rotary (more aggressive stock removal) or orbital (finer finish) modes, but at a much lower price point. It's a bit on the...

    You could rout out a recess that spans the holes and inlay a piece. A photo of what you are dealing with would be helpful.

    That's "sharkguard."

    A riving knife is best, but if that's not possible, do use a splitter of some sort. Another excellent, though pricey, safety add-on is the JessEm clear-cut stock guides....
