    If you regularly need to tow such a heavy load for >60 miles, a luxury sedan is probably not the right vehicle :)

    If you don't have a 16ga finish nailer, this would be a good reason to get one. You can buy a reputable brand (Makita, Hitachi) for ~$120, new. 2" nails would be right for these treads, plus it's...

    I'd build a jig. I'm doing this same project, too, right now, and was amazed how expensive the commercial tread jigs are (for what is really just a couple scraps of ply and a few bolts and nuts).

    D'oh. Maybe I was being dense. I guess I saw "Top Categories" under "Tools" and assumed it was a subset of "All" categories, so my willingness to spend time looking through the list was low. I see it...

    I had a pressure regulator fail, which I discovered because all the (expensive) shower faucet cartridges failed one after another. Yes, you definitely want to regulate it down.

    People get wider jointers to flatten the faces of wide boards that they don't intend to rip down further.

    As you describe your workflow, you're right that there's no need for a bigger jointer...

    Steve, I've heard that, too, and it has at least some theoretical basis. A 3-phase motor produces constant torque, while a single-phase motor produces pulsating torque. Whether or not that shows up...

    I think the concept Jim is referring to is the fact that a 3 phase system can transmit more power per conductor area than a single phase system. So while "amps are amps" is true, you can power a...

    The cyclone makes sense for a DC that's running all day long and moving a lot of dust - it keep the filters cleaner, longer. If you're only running the DC a few hours a week and blowing the filter...

    I've looked at the Moen device, but it also looks really plasticy. Like I'd be more worried about the valve breaking and leaking ��

    It's frustrating because I could almost build my own. A...

    Oh, for sure I turn the water off when leaving for 1+ days. But even being gone at work for ~8hrs makes me nervous. A lot of damage could happen in 10 minutes, really.

    In pic #4, there looks to be a divot on the infeed table? Or is that just a reflection?

    Have you gotten a feeler gauge out and seen if any of those table blemishes put it measurably out of flat?

    Mark, I can't tell from the picture, but is it possible the reset button is "out"? The overcurrent may be tripped, which would prevent the coil from getting power.

    Beautiful! I love how the color streaking seems very organic, on one hand, but that you were able to match it so well across all the "levels" to also make it look intentional. Very nice work!
