    Plywood thickness is too variable for me. Probably due to the intermittent use and random supply sources. This makes it too unpredictable to bother with a "standard" plywood dimension for me. ...

    For no-show surfaces I want to protect or where I want to mitigate moisture effects I use a 1lb cut of shellac. It goes on easily, adds a bit of warmth color-wise and leaves a smooth surface when...

    The Grizzly Growler (Go863) has reviewed poorly due to what some (including me) would call a design problem. The "vacuum equalizing system" runs a pipe horizontally through the cyclone's internal...

    You'll get plenty of comment on this. Here's mine:
    - If you can only have one, the medium is most versatile, the large is my preferred.
    - For only $40 more you can have the Veritas which is the...

    Pine or fir would be my guess. Cedar can have oils and redwood could leave stains. Cherry or alder also seem to be absorbent and have tighter grain and are more resilient. I'm sure there are...

    I don't know about the Delta but the DeWalt is certainly running on a different circuit. The draw may not be all that different due to the higher voltage on the Saw Stop. With the breaker replaced...

    I make multiple cuts across the grain and then pare the spoil out.

    That is a somewhat typical t-square style fence for a contractor saw. The manual was easy to find online and the fence adjustments (under 'Assembly' as well as the 'Adjustments' sections[???]) are...

    Once I reach the point of putting a final surface preparation on parts I do make sure my hands are clean before handling. If you are getting oils on parts in quantities that a wipe with some...

    I meant "sleds", not "slides". Darned voice-to-text :D

    Oh, and definitely two runners. Bandsaw drift is a myth. Double the contact surface is math. Just supplying a different opinion ;)

    First off I agree to make a couple of test cuts and see if the result is good. If it is, stop now ;-)

    Waxing the beds is the most common fix folks seem to miss on planers. If your feed rollers are serrated metal, reducing the pressure should not be an issue; mine are backed way off. If the feed...

    Depends on the damage. The worm gear should have some sort of eccentric to adjust for backlash. If that is all that is required my son in law just sold a 10 year younger version of that saw for...

    Apples and oranges to me. The card scraper allows more finesse and is more versatile. The #80 style tool uses the sole as a reference surface and I use it differently.
