    I use the small miter fence constantly, Steve, but I am a little less space constrained than you are. Since I cut down the right side table, I leave the full outrigger on, too.

    I'm sure there are...

    The issue with PFTE coatings when they get too hot goes beyond durability...they release toxic fumes. But cooking with lower temps is a good thing when you can and eggs/omelettes are actually better...

    I may have already mentioned this, but in a recent communication with Sam, he did mention that the configurations they typically stock here in the US will likely have shorter lead times than custom...

    "Maybe" is my answer simply because there are enough unknowns here that I don't want to commit. "ideally" there would be no intersecting tenons. That said, when I look at your diagram with the...

    When it comes to ROS, there are differences as you move up in price/quality. Festools Rotex and Bosch's similar dual-mode sanders are very capable machines. The biggie for me is vibration. The lower...

    Steve, if one doesn't have the small miter fence mounted all the time like I do, removing that entire aux table only takes a few seconds.

    I have the XL so I obviously use the 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 14mm Dominos most of the time for my work. (I do have the Seneca adapter to use the 500's cutters for smaller, however) My preference is...

    Hidden support pieces and secondary wood only needs sanding to the extent that the surface is consistent for accurate joinery and gluing. It doesn't need to be pretty. I generally wouldn't go beyond...

    Good point, Jamie. No need to sand the primer unless it's buggered for some reason and needs to be "re-smoothed". :)

    I find that product interesting, but because we have birds, we have to be EXTREMELY careful about specific non-stick materials. IE, must be PFTE and PFOA free. Unfortunately, PFTE is still used for...

    I know a college student in Florida that's been in an FBI program, but it was not like an internship. It did cement her interest in joining the agency after graduation in a few years.

    'Glad you had a good experience with that new ripping blade, Alan. It's a "beast" and yea, it looks like it might butcher wood, but it cuts amazingly clean considering the lower number of teeth.
