    Of course not, Steve. The needle on the purple HF is something like 1.4 mm, and it's a gravity gun. No way it will spray latex wall paint well, even with substantial thinning. The viscosity of...

    Both of the drum sanders I have owned I bought used. The current one needed to have the drums on one side shimmed up a few thousandths to get it parallel with the bed. The prior owner, a...

    True, but the $20 purple Harbor Freight gun sprays beautifully, too. Cheap guns spray really well, not quite as well as more expensive ones, but really well. They just don't last nearly as long...

    Dawn or Palmolive dish soap in warm water will remove the dirt and oil w/o harming the underlying finish. A razor blade works well for shearing paint specs off a finish. All finishes are nontoxic...

    The simplest answer is to get an Earlex HVLP turbine unit. Most bang for the $'s and guaranteed to work.

    Interesting that you bought that Husky gun, since it says not suitable for latex paint...

    The G0458Z is only $1100 new. $1000 for a used one is a poor deal unless it has a lifetime supply of sanding media with it. I'd keep looking for a better deal on a used machine. If time forced me...

    Did anyone mention using a support strap on the outside of the laminations to prevent them from breaking going around the form? That's pretty common practice for making tight bends, and it allows...

    I would get the one that's at least 12" wide. Seriously. I started with a 10" J/P and now have a 14" but still often wish for wider. Everything gets easier on a wider machine. Long beds are nice,...

    That's some really nice work. Are those glass shelves?

    The feather board you see is 12" high, but you can make it any height you want by adding/subtracting rollers. The rollers stay in place for all resaw and veneer slicing, regardless of board height. ...

    I did look at those slices of Sapele. I commented about how good they looked and how well the Woodmaster CT cut even at that low tension. But again, you are missing the point about adequate...
  14. Good point, Will. Nothing else matters much if...

    Good point, Will. Nothing else matters much if the blade isn't sharp and I will add, with equal set on both sides. And that last point is one major advantage for carbide blades. They have no set,...

    Mike, if you're happy that's all that matters. 12 ksi is half of where the Woodmaster CT performs best. Your photos shows it still performs well, but I'm sure at a pretty slow feed rate. If you're...

    Holy cow, about $900 for that. It looks well made and maybe it has its place for folks who only need to make small quantities of veneer, etc, and with a lot of patience to glue the stock to the...

    I don't think anyone is suggesting that drift is solved by high tension, certainly not me. But once your saw is set up to cut straight adequate tension makes it easier for the blade to cut straight...

    Oh, yes I did. Thanks for catching that. It now reads the correct value of 0.10".

    Geez, that doesn't look near as bad as I had envisioned from your first post. Have you tried buffing it with a power buffer or buffing pad on your ROS?

    I don't know what the tension is on your saw at the 1" mark, but on mine it's 24 ksi. Actually, I think I do know, and it's not 24 ksi. The FB 510 can't apply that much on a 1" blade with...

    After the recent discussion about resaw blades, I thought I would show some photos I took today slicing some walnut veneer. Here's a photo of my bandsaw, with an auxiliary tall fence, roller feather...

    I would not want to be w/o my miter sled. No miter gage comes close to supporting the work as well, or having a built in ZCI. I built it 30 years ago and it still cuts 90.0 deg, without fail.
