    My guess is he wasn't charging enough. I recall someone posting on this forum that it was too expensive. Once I had used it I found it invaluable.

    Wetting out the wood with solvent can help show flaws, especially swirls and glue spots and other contamination that will inhibit finish bonding, but good raking light is essential. Mineral spirits...

    The longer the drop from cone to barrel, the greater margin against clogging the filter in case the barrel overfills. A section of pipe will be less expensive than flex hose.

    Screw holding in the face is ok for your application. For better moisture resistance use Medex. Yes, it can be dented, on the order of yellow poplar.

    Actually you didn't. You slagged some options and expressed a general preference for older machines. If you do have recommendations for new low cost cnc routers, by all means share them.

    That is a different breed of cat. I suspect you might get more insight from boatbuilders than from most of the woodworkers here. Are there alternative formulations of peelply that release more...

    veneering compound curves

    I came across this video of David Marks applying bookmatched shopsawn veneer to a dome shape. Since the veneer has to warp to fit the dome the center joint is curved. He uses a spiling technique I...

    There are several reasons why I use cauls over veneer on the top side of a panel, especially with thin sliced veneer. I also use a caul under the veneer and over a grooved base platen, but that is...

    I used to work with a guy who had used one. As I recall he said it was useful for variable spaced dovetails. I guess you will find out how it works for you, but the price sounds right.

    I'm not familiar with peelply, but a caul that sticks to the veneer seems like a bad idea. I typically use lightly waxed 1/4" or 3/8"melamine coated particleboard on flat work. For curved layups I...

    I have eight 5" x 18" Jorgensens and they are bomber but wicked heavy. The 3 1/2" throat ones are a good compromise. The 2 1/2" though are fine for most of my tasks and light enough to not distort...
