    Maybe not best, but a very good one. But there are two, both worth the visit. Visit their website to get the details right, but the second, smaller, one is the Villa. It's on the coast between...

    Hey, verging way off topic, is Jazz on 6th street still there? It's been 25-30 years now, but its New Orleans style food is one my few fond memories of business trips to Austin. (These were...

    I just looked at his site. I suggest a lot more research into what your SWMBO expects. The kits are a very German profile, (very curved cutting edge), a little or a lot shorter than typical, and...

    Not that thing again! It came up in a previous thread and I SHARED MY THOUGHTS on it there. (tl,dr: "Schizophrenic".)

    I think you're much better going with a simple traditional design. I'd...

    What is the core wood like? I'm wondering if this isn't sort of a torsion box construction. If the core is too weak, too soft or too brittle, to be a handle by itself, it may just be cheap and used...

    Probably too late for John, but Joel just posted that they just received a batch at TFWW. (And it will probably be out of stock again shortly.... :) )

    Conference room tables are often multiple sections and the connectors (bed bolts?) they use have to be available somewhere. However you might not want to do that with the design in the middle. At...

    What's a big ShopBot go for? (Once you buy the rails & sled, add a big router, and probably want dust collection... seems like you might be getting pretty close in price.)

    ETA: never mind, used...

    Instead of telling you what I'd get, I'm going to suggest talking to the instructor and asking for specific recommendations. I find I have a better class experience when I'm using the tools most...

    This was recently discussed here for a 240V system:

    220v remote switch for Dust collector

    most of the suggestions would also apply to high-current 120V systems.

    $110 in Woodcraft's February flyer.

    (BTW- this is the 1/2 HP model. Not what more preferred 1 HP model, but cheaper & good enough for most of us.)

    I can't think why you couldn't make it work mechanically, but do you really want the metal and abrasive grit any where near your lathe?

    You're welcome! (Glad I remembered, it's been a long time.) Also, thanks for Brown & Sharp, I forgot them in my list. I'm sure there are others that serve well too. OP, it depends on access,...

    Starrett is classic quality example. It's a traditional American company with a long history. Mitutoyo is a Japanese equivalent in machinist circles. There are quite a few "upstarts" making...

    Rob Lee addressed a lot of this, over many posts on several sites, when the new Lee Valley site went live.

    The photo is fuzzy, but it reminded me of the "Little Victor" replica LV makes. Comparing them I see the details are different, but the history in the product description might be interesting.
