    Cherry would definitely be a heavy option unless just for a rub rail or similar. I think the only way to get 18' cherry would be to have it custom sawn, and it would be hard to find a...

    When I worked in a shop that had both a track saw and a full size sliding table saw I would have received the side eye at best and more likely a good razzing if I had suggested using the track saw...

    A neighbor has a similar Robland saw (8') and is happy with it. I haven't used it but it looks to be on a par with my Paoloni and the MiniMax line for overall build quality. I would say it is a...

    Yes. The cyclone will add resistance to the system but the cartridge filter will offer less resistance when clean.

    The 1100 cfm figure is at 0" static pressure with the stock filter in place and 5' of inlet hose. Flow figures are meaningless without an associated static pressure. The new filter will help with...

    I made a close replica of Hannes Michelson's Vector jig using a wood platform screwed to the Wolverine arm and played with the pivot locations and Varigrind settings. I was able to get very close to...

    You can take the temper out of carbon steel with any type of grinder if you are not paying attention. CBN makes it more difficult. I think CBN wheels are a good investment if you use a grinder much...
