    I sharpen mine using a small grinding stone in a Foredom, or a Dremel type tool with a low speed would work. It makes them cut a lot better, I tried one in desperation and the result was so good...

    If you fold it into thirds and put it in a box that is no bigger than necessary (a pizza box would be ideal) you can send it across the country for about $20 by USPS priority mail.

    I have one of their 4-1/2" circular saws that I set up with a .023" x 2" blade to cut fret slots, and it has been great. Very powerful for the size. I've been tempted to buy another one to keep the...

    Several years ago, somewhere between 5 and 10, our local dollar store chain got in a big batch of Norton sanding belts in many grits and sizes. I bought a few dozen 50 grit 4x36 belts, and they are...

    I think they look nice together. I often use walnut for the trim pieces on cherry banjos, and it's one of the nicest combinations in my opinion. Of course a dresser may be different because it's...

    I have a Shopsmith and use it every day in my banjo building operations. It is great for horizontal drilling and disc sanding, and OK as a lathe, especially with the universal tool rest option. I...

    Could you buy or make a larger base and put two of the tools on it together? If you put the back of the drill press next to the pillar of one of the bandsaws they wouldn't interfere with each other.

    My hands tend to be dry and even to crack in the winter, so I rarely get grime or oil on wood from them. If I have spilled glue on the workbench and gotten my hand in it without noticing I can get...

    I don't know about the Unisaw, but I have never heard anything good about the x5 series, and have heard that parts are NLA. If you get it really cheap it still might be a good deal, though.

    I'd like to get one of these boxes if they're still available. I can use even very small pieces, I mostly use it to make nuts for banjos, and nuts and saddles for guitars. I'll send a PM too, and...

    I've done it numerous times on the miter saw, with thicknesses up to 3/4". Just go a little slow and make sure the work is supported/anchored and it will cut just fine. I have also cut aluminum on...

    I would be nervous about a 24x40 building with 2x4 walls, that seems like a lot of roof to be held up by that amount of wood. I built a 20x30 building for the sawmill and tractor storage and used...

    I don't see any reason why you'd need to have a miter saw if you don't want to. I am surprised that you'd use a jigsaw for crosscutting lumber to length, my experience with them has been that they...

    I don't know if this would work, but what about using a cut off wheel in an angle grinder? You wouldn't be out much if it didn't work, the wheels are cheap.

    I don't know about the spider, but my 19-38 main motor is almost silent and very smooth when running without a load. It's louder with wood going through, and the conveyor belt system is a lot louder...

    I got a roll of 3" wide 80 grit PSA roll from them years ago and it is still going strong, I only use it on radius blocks when making a radiused fretboard so I don't get through a lot.
