    Roger that. That's the way it is in TN too, and probably elsewhere. The law here is if you catch a varmint (skunk, raccoon, possum, fox, etc) in a trap you have two options:
    1) Euthanize it...

    My experience

    I have the Jet.
    Air filters like these slowly circulate the air in the shop, nice for cleaning dust from the air, especially while you are out of the shop for a while. I've monitored mine with a...

    Depends on your budget! And probably the amount of use. A refrigeration dryer would be excellent but they are not cheap.

    Excellent!

    I've probably had a dozen visitors to my shop after we "met" here, and I have visited others. Woodworker/turners tend to be nice people!

    Zounds, I hate to do plumbing. Better you than me! :)
    I'm thankful for plumbers though.

    Some folks bought a foreclosure house on our street. The bank hired a company to winterize the...

    I don't know what the indicator is like on that saw but others I've checked were way off. For example, to get proper tension on the 1/2"x3tpi blades I use for green wood I the indicator needle has...

    You might need a pretty big nitrogen tank. Typical pressure in a tank is 2000 psi but the volume is not huge - just about 80 cu ft in a "Q" tank, the largest you can own AFAIK. You can lease...

    Talking about rift/quartersawn, or flat/plainsawn pieces doesn't make much sense without describing the orientation of the small pieces in the glueup. There is insignificant shrinkage...

    That's probably a better idea. How did you fasten the outfeed table to the bandsaw? Is it quick to install and remove? I don't need one on the infeed side.

    I've never used the miter gage on my Ridgid oscillating sander - I have one on a good disk/belt sander for precision and small parts. I mostly use the Ridgid for hand-held shaping.

    Yikes, that's incredible! I can't imagine anyone confusing a wood like bubinga with palm! Palm is not even a wood as we define it, more of a grass, I think terrible to turn. Palm doesn't even...

    I like your roller support. I need to add something like that to my bandsaw. That much help when I saw longer heavy green log sections. What I do now is push the wood until it is balanced on the...

    I once resawed a 12' long douglas fir 2x12. I made a high fence and fed the board. I set the back end on a roller stand at even height with the bandsaw table. The friend who wanted it cut into 4...

    Thanks for sharing!

    I have a group of cub scouts coming here next weekend for an intro to woodworking (with hand tools).

    Thanks, I'll try cranking it up.

    BTW, one of my Tri-Master carbide blades broke but it was at the weld and I don't think from over tensioning. The local bandsaw blade shop rewelded it and it...

    Do you mean the Varigrind 1 or 2?

    I have both. I don't like the Varigrind 2. It forces the gouge to stay in the center of the wheel the whole time. This will eventually wear out the center of...

    Yes, I can see the picture now. Very smooth cut.
