    The Griggio is a nice machine. As a matter of fact Griggio makes the mortiser for Martin, the only difference I can see is the color of the paint.

    Ross, I did the same as Ken. My PB/Melamine edged with ash has held up very well, 15 years so far. I ran ash supports [1x3] underneath spaced ~12" apart. It is still flat, and I do glue-ups on it...

    All planers are adjusted relative to the cutting circle, so if you adjust your machine perfectly today and then tomorrow...

    If you had the room, separate machines are very convenient. I like and can get wide boards, so I have the big jointer and planer to process that lumber. I don't use a lot of sheet goods, so a panel...

    Polyurethane glue will act as a lubricant, will give you more open time, and will foam more if you dip the dowel in water.

    If your dowels fit tightly dry then there is enough moisture in summer...

    Julie, I don't know what kind of dust collector you have, but even a cyclone can fit in most attics above a garage. Chips aren't heavy, so you could run the ductwork for the bin to a shelf above the...

    I have a 7.5hp single phase compressor that required a 60A breaker, so you might be up against the limits of your wiring.

    If you don't have the manual for your planer I'm sure you can find it online. It's better to use the Delta factory knife height setting, that way you might not have to change lots of other settings...
