    This is why I never cared for mounting casters directly to the machine or most mobile bases. How else am I supposed to move the machine without some sort of handles? This was my solution:

    Where we live there are 35 post offices within a 10 mile radius according to the USPS site. Most are not within reasonable walking distance for more than a handful of people. Do they REALLY need that...

    There are some 'friendlier' nuclear reactor designs on paper, there are designs where if coolant is lost the reactor shuts down rather than melts down but it'd be a HUGE risk to actually build them....

    True about the 'less sharp on one side than the other'. That is why some people keep separate blades for curved cuts and straight/resaw cuts. A curved cut can create more wear on one side of the...

    This is a pretty simple thing to check. Move the guides away from the blade, move the blade tracking on the upper wheel, reset the guides and try it. On my saw - Rikon 10-325 - running the blade in...

    I think SawStop & Grizzly (and similar Asian imports) are the top choices today. I'm not sure where new Powermatic table saws fall. I too could not see a reason to buy a new Unisaw.

    Also keep in mind that there are at least 2 kinds of "the canned stuff". My memory says Sealcoat is dewaxed and a 2 lb. cut. There is also a canned product that has wax in it and is a 3 lb. cut. The...

    I guess there's some grain raising but it ain't much. A few quick swipes is right for sanding, which is why I was annoyed with the guy who painted the stair rail without sanding it first. It would...

    One of the useful things about using shellac as an undercoat is that it doesn't raise grain. Water raises grain and shellac has little or no water in it. I sprayed a couple louvered doors with...

    Thanks Steve. A new spring wouldn't be a big thing.
  17. Rikon 10-325 & band tension. DieMaster2/ Trimaster

    Will this saw sufficiently tension either of these blades adequately? Toolcenter.com/Cyber woodworking depot has both for what seem to be a reasonable price. Both are 1/2" .025" thick which makes me...

    That was my thought as well. 3/8" sounds better I'd think. And yeah, if you need other than 93"/105" blades pickins' can be slim.
