    Me too although I do get some dust on the saw's base and floor. I think the factory collector and something immediately below the table would do pretty well. Perhaps you wouldn't even need the...

    I've done that with melamine, it worked better than I expected. Make the scoring cut then raise the blade for the through cut. I expected a 'step' between the passes but nope, clean cut. I've heard...

    There are pictures here and elsewhere to back up your journeyman. Those are the ones that didn't burn the house down.

    I did the shellac as a first coat trick on some softwood panels. Spray Sealcoat, sand (quick and easy) then water based enamel. Really smooth, it looks like I knew what I was doing. Of course I did...

    I learned it at my father's knee, not everything we need to know is taught in class. There's also This Old House and its ilk. Someone who has grown up in an urban area or grew up in a rental...

    I recommend to anyone space limited to consider a Jointer/Planer combo. I have a 12" Jet JJP-12 that fits in a space 2' X 5'. That gets me a 12" jointer and 12" planer powered by an induction motor....

    There is at least talk in Pennsylvania of a 5 year life limit on tires. The supposed concern is sidewall dry rot. This was from an independent shop that doesn't sell tires but does state inspections....

    Toolcenter.com lists Trimaster blades 1/2" X .025" X 111" so pretty thin and should be easier to tension. $160 so not cheap but Trimasters are like that I'm told. They also have DieMaster 2 $43.67...

    But a good bench top sitting on a stout mobile cabinet adds a good bit of storage and uses no bench space. If the bench top's head can swivel you can swivel the head to the side of the cabinet and...

    Rebuilding NiMH and NiCad batteries is pretty straightforward. Li-Ion are another kettle of fish, the rebuilder needs to know what they're doing and I'm not sure about cost vs. new batteries.

    I have a Rikon with a detensioning lever. I'm sure a shop where a bandsaw runs at least once every few days doesn't benefit from detensioning. I haven't turned my saw on for probably 3 months and it...

    I'm not sure about convenience but I've bought 3/8" birch ply from a 'real' sheet goods supplier. Rabbet the edges so they fit a 1/4" slot.
