    the Steelers already have 6 don't they? I think it's the Steelers with 6, Cowboys and 49'ers with 5, and the Patriots with 4. Number 7 for the Steelers would be my vote!

    Freehand routing is one of the ones I've done nothing for, yet. I don't even know where to start. I've got a Porter Cable 690 and 7518. The 7518 resides primarily in the router table. I use the Fein...

    It's the Laguna 2 horsepower cyclone. There doesn't seem to be a lack of suction at any of the stations. I'm just wondering if I need to tweak things on some of the machines to optimize dust...

    Wouldn't the saw fence have to clamp front and back of the table to use these? I have a Vega fence that doesn't clamp at the rear of the table. It seems these would just raise the fence?

    Does anyone know if any of the cyclone manufacturers will price their units without filters, or do you just have to buy the "stock" unit? It seems like that may present a savings.

    Thanks,

    Well, then that leads to a second question. How many guys have experience exhausting directly outside from heated space? What has been your experience with heat loss?

    another dust collection question

    I'm in the process of designing a dust collection system for my shop. I like the idea of exhausting outside for the health benefit as well as maybe a noise reduction. But, I've got the same...

    Both pieces look like the ones on my Makita 9820-2 wet grinder. The little tank is the water drip for the wheel.

    I can't answer your question from experience, as I've only ordered my track saw, today. I wouldn't think moving the rail forward would work very well, though. It seems like it would defeat the...

    Actually, the Delta 12" saw has a 5/8" arbor. I took some measurements last night, and it looks like it would need at least a 10" dado stack to do any meaningful work. I've got an 8" Freud Super...
