    Haven't owned the Rikons, but I did own a Laguna 14SUV for a number of years. The motor was nice. The only real issue I had with it, and this may have been resolved in later generations, is that...

    Always wanted to try electrolysis. I usually use phosphoric acid or evaporust. Not totally thrilled with either.

    I need to sandblast a houseful of door levers, so I might take that route.

    I hope more people wear them, but I'm skeptical.

    It wasn't a difficult transition for me. Being an anesthesiologist, I was a professional mask wearer at work. So using a good P100 respirator in...

    Suggested rip blade for thick wood

    I'm having to rip some 3-1/2" hard maple on my Sawstop ICS. The saw can't cut that deep in one pass, but it stalled several times today cutting even 1/2 way. I was using my Freud Thin Kerf Glue...
