    The single piece of shim between the inside washer and saw blade works very well. I use a piece of paper instead of tape, but have done it many times. Mark Duginske used to say a pad of Post-It-Notes...

    I also made up a version like John's, but used a laminate trimmer to keep it lightweight.

    The easiest way is to make the hardwood edging about 3/16" thick. Then any means of flushing it up is extremely easy. Often just a card scraper. If it has a profile on it, I make the edging about...

    "Any good" and "substantially cheaper" are very vague and makes recommendations almost impossible. This will almost certainly be moved to the CNC section. But we mainly need to know the use,...

    A simple Google search for 1/16 basswood brings up this source. I'm sure a veneer slitter or metal shear is used to size the stock you are currently buying. There are also leather tools made with a...

    John, I was making a point. I have no idea what kind of an offset I have, but I'm pretty certain that Delta drum sander won't make a 24" wide glued up panel flat in one pass. That said, I've been...

    If you can get a 24" wide panel within .010" in the glue up you are way better than me. And I've been doing it for 48 years.

    The only way I'd buy a double roll sander is if the back roller can easily be lifted out of position. Very seldom, especially on a wide panel. will the roughing roller make the panel dead flat in one...

    I'd go one step further and spec kiln dried furniture grade. Kiln dried construction grade can be around 19% which would make me nervous.

    Pay particular attention to John K Jordan's advise. It's like he wrote my story. I cut free logs for a full year. Luckily for me I sold the mill for the same amount I paid for it. After air drying I...

    Won't destroy it, but you'll need to buy acetone by the gallon to clean off the adhesive that pulls off the paper. Try using Mirka Abranet rolls. Lots of happy users.
