    Agreed on the cutting height.

    I have to mention something about corn gluten meal however. (Years of experience playing around with it.) It may work well in the North, but here in the South it...

    When you turn them on can make a significant difference. If I anticipate a lot of dust, I'll turn on the cleaner in advance, then it never gets to the point that the air is clouded with dust. Of...

    I third the recommendation for Whiteside. If they cost a little more, IMO it's worth it. Never had a bad experience with them. Solid.

    My lungs tell me the circular arrangement will be more efficient. Also, the AFS-2000 will be overkill in a pair, the AFS-1000 pair will do the job. In my 18 x 44 main shop space, with a single...

    The answer is simple. You need to seize the means of production.

    The first time you nick a wire in a wall, you will carefully review that a Roto-Zip would have paid for itself. :^) My last home theater install saw that the pre-existing house wiring had been...

    If the fixture is already wired up (as they usually are,) using a keyhole saw can be "tricky". I prefer not to be so nervous. :^) (Otherwise you'd have to measure out the locations on the sheet ...

    You could mitigate this by pulling the drywall out towards the screw heads (drilling the screws all the way in and then backing them out would assist., with a hook pulling the sheet from the top...

    I'm using the Makita version of it, they call it a "spiral saw", it's a bit more expensive than the RotoZip but it comes with dust collection (and a hard case, if you're into that sort of thing.)...

    A few screws at the top, not drilled in all the way (gives it some play,) so the sheet is leaning against the box.

    So you haven't tried actually using the plane yet? You should sharpen the iron, stick it back in the plane, and use it for a while. Then decide if there's still a problem, based on _performance_, and...

    To refine this a little: a surface plate, blue layout fluid, and a carbide scraper, will do this job quite quickly, if you go _slowly_ and check your work often. That said, a slightly high point...

    If the edges are prepared properly, you would need just enough pressure to maintain firm contact across the length of the joint. What is "firm contact" is to be judged from experience.
