    My Jet Contractor saw used to give me fits also. It had four bolts to lock the mechanism in place.
    The two in the rear were easy to get at. I installed the pals there. The one at the front right of...

    Joe
    I read a thread by Michael Dresdner many year ago about filling cracks. His position is that trying to "match" it, will only partially work, and you'll never successfully hide the defect, so...

    I've been cutting a lot of plywood lately for some house projects, and it is very nice to just work off the tailgate of the truck. A few sawhorses for a...

    Jointers and planers???As big as will fit in your shop and you can afford.
    Bigger is always better with these two machines.

    I think your fine. My experience has been primarily with System 3 and West, but I'm confident that product line is the same.

    Justin

    If these are separate pumps, one for the resin and one for the hardener, it shouldn't be an issue. I've been using the same two pumps for a long now. If it is the system that also mixes it...

    Fairly certain I'm over that $12K threshold, but it took me 35 years to get there. Actual "street value" today is much lower.
    I tried to buy quality when I could, but most of my machines are at the...

    I'm not sure if you got Woodpeckers tools thrown in with the saw, or the saw thrown in with the Woodpeckers tools. Either way, Sweet deal!! :cool:

    It's actually a code requirement to ground the panels at separate buildings.
    The reason is to establish ground. I know that you are "carrying ground" back to the main service panel, via the wiring,...

    Rob
    The sound of it coming up to speed is a bit unnerving at first, but you should hear an OF2200 wind up. If it was any other router, you would turn it off.

    I won't say that I "beat the crap" out of my Festool tools, but then I do try not to beat on any tools.
    I have been using my TS 75 to repair my roof and front porch this past few weeks. Lot's of...

    2/3rd's of the new price for all of the items is a good starting point to me. Festool is nice stuff, it really is, but now that Makita and DeWalt are in the same game, folks have options as far as...

    I would just use solid wood for the whole project. Then again I detest MDF in any form.
    As for "grades". I can't speak to that as I don't use it. I do know that it comes in different densities,...

    Yes, an individual valve can be removed and reinstalled on a manifold. It's going to depend a lot on your skill level, and the design of the manifold, but it's done all the time.

    Yeah, you gotta get the poochie treated first. Like Lee, we also use Frontline.

    Nice article. Very well written.
    Early in my career I worked in a mechanical standards lab, calibrating virtually every tool a machinist might ever need, so I also am a little biased to...

    I think you safe Bill.

    That band saw is almost 9' tall, and probably weighs more that 2000lbs. Moving it is another story altogether.
    It's size and weight alone eliminates most of us. :(

    I don't know which wood John is referring to as porous, but if it is the Wenge, I can tell you from experience that Wenge is not porous. Wenge is hard.

    The Freud is a nice blade. I use it with good results.
    For comparison, I also have rip blades by Forrest and CMT, and I've never seen any difference. They are all used on a 2HP, General...

    As Robert stated, Uniform clamping pressure, and cauls will go a long way to help you. Like Robert, I also keep them clamped flat after the glue up is complete.

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I connected both of our garden hoses together, once or twice, to "extend the range" of the compressor. 200' of 5/8" hose, rated at 150psi.

    Art

    Once the system is initially pressurized to the point of compressor cutout, the compressor motor will shut off. The duty cycles will be longer, but the compressor should never run full time...
