    I used a full kerf blade on a 1.5HP saw successfully. You just need to go slow and listen to the sound of the blade.

    Regarding Mike W's comment that old motors had more torque or HP, I'm afraid...

    Just make sure it's the monitor and not the computer that's the problem.

    I've made quite a few laminated parts for projects, including rockers for several rocking chairs, using Titebond glue and none of them show any "creep".

    Pictures are a bit difficult to go by, but I've restored planes that look worse than this. You're not going to use a #2 a whole lot because where you'd use it a block plane will usually do as well....

    Of course, for the price of those gray-market licenses you could just purchase another one. On eBay I see them for about $10 or less.

    That's a bit under $20 per tool so that's not too bad of a price. If you do a lot of carving you'll probably purchase more of them.

    I suspect that's what they sell on eBay because the license is fairly cheap.

    The media is sort of meaningless. You can download Windows 10 (home or pro) from the Microsoft website. I think you'd have to pay full price for another computer.

    I'm not a big fan of horizontal boring machines. I do like horizontal slot cutters, however. I've used horizontal slot cutters a fair amount and really like them for making mortises.

    I know a lot of this stuff is code, but why would there be a safety issue if the male plug is 30 amps? When we run a multidrop convenience outlet circuit we put 15 amp outlets on a 20 amp circuit...

    You're only looking at that epoxy sold in the Borg. West Systems (for example) has a slow hardener that gives you lots of open time. It takes a day to really cure, however.

    It looks (from your picture) that the screw hole for the front knob has a broken screw in it. If true, you'll have to find a way to extract that before you can mount a new knob.

    I agree with this. I've put ice cubes in a larger tray and then set my epoxy tray on top of the ice. A large amount of epoxy can get hot from the reaction and harden up quickly. Keeping it cool...
