    If this is for a combo machine, I would not look any further than a three or four-wheel feeder. Remember, you still have to manhandle that thing out of the way. Even the DC Comatics aren't light. One...

    Ryan, sounds like you are on the right track. The architectural millwork firm I worked at did reclaimed barnwood as a one of our interior cladding lines. Here is what I can share:

    Food for thought: If someone REALLY needs to have a wide slab fly-milled, sanded, etc., I'm certain there are local shops or dealers who could handle that. For example, Berdoll Sawmill here in the...

    I'm no expert on this stuff but Abranet seems to be "the brand" for mesh discs among my customers. The standard discs are more common, though. Probably due to cost.

    My experience: J/P's are like bandsaws. There inevitably will come a point where you wish you had a larger one but for the vast majority of us, life is about compromise. There are budget issues, size...

    ^^^ This. We used Doug Fir for some interior and exterior cladding products at the architectural millwork I was at and it wouldn't necessarily be my first choice. Most of the timber we had access to...

    LTL service is the cheapest but as others have pointed out, I wouldn't trust it unless the piece of machinery is REALLY well crated on the shipper's end. If I have to hotshot (dedicated load, small...

    I worked in the plastics industry for a bit. There are 3M specialty epoxies that "may" seal a hole but they are quite expensive. Generally speaking, welding (yes, that's a thing) is the only...

    Unfortunately, long-chassis sliding table saws are too large to fit on liftgate trucks. Whenever we deliver a machine that size, we either leave it a local freight terminal for the customer to pick...

    My opinion: You are better off picking it up yourself in an open (low) trailer. Or directly hiring a person who can hotshot it to you. The pandemic has made it a real struggle to find LTL carriers...

    Yeah, but they're way beefier than the Kreg. At least the ones I saw. I guess it just depends on what the priorities are.

    If I had a entire container of used bandsaws, I could sell them all in one afternoon. Right now is probably the most supply-influenced market we'll all ever experience.

    You're right, Patrick: A slider "will" do that but if there was lots of that type of work, a regular cabinet saw or bandsaw (home shop) or SLR would be a better choice. But I think most folks here...

    Like Jim, I never found it weird to rip on a slider. There were always Board Buddies or Grippers in the shop and any super-narrow strips could be done on the bandsaw. The F&F jig sprung up while I...

    We never really got the tankless for power savings (gas). The "on-demand" part plus form factor were the attractions. We were doing a major remodel at the time, so it made sense. Our upstairs...
