    Jealous about the drum sander.

    I took a seemingly easy job and turned it into a 3hr sanding exercise when I started nit picking over some imperfect dado joints. I sure am glad I spent the time...

    Thanks Prashun. That is a great looking stool, and I might buy the plan to make one for myself. Using that search term I found a ton of other nice options to think about.

    Erik, the first time your tool holder hits a part you are cutting due to any number of errors an operator can make you will see how easy this can happen. I did it years ago, and in very short order...

    If you have access to a glulam supplier that makes for a nice core as well. A bit lighter too. Joe has shown off some BauBuche before as well. That would be great, but not easy to find.

    I would guess it is the machine. The cutter must lift to move to the different pockets, and if the Z axis ball screw or assembly has any play this can happen. You can easily check the gcode for...

    Interesting, but does not look as well thought out as many seen here. A tad overpriced, and I am not sure I would agree this is Aigner quality. If Aigner, I would not expect to see so much wood.:D

    Can you feel any heat or is the epoxy cold? No heat, the reaction has stopped. How did you measure? I have had too many problems with epoxy so I measure with a scale to the gram now.
