    I agree with Paul's post but I'd ask one additional question: Is the motor really hot when the OT trips? There's always a possibility that the OT device is tripping in error.

    If it's...

    I had an 18V DeWalt hammer drill but when I went to the new 20V tools I bought the plain drill. I use a hammer drill so seldom that I can use my plug in (corded) hammer drill when I need to drill...

    I have the non-XL and love it. To my mind, it's the only really unique Festool tool. I use it on just about every project I do.

    Very nice. Do you make your purfling or did you purchase it somewhere? If you made it, how did you make it? It's difficult to cut stringing so that it's even thickness all along.

    Here's Skipper - who's always with me in the shop. He's getting up in age but still has a lot of energy.

    It wouldn't allow me to log in with my old credentials either. I sent an email to LV and they sent me a new password that I used, and then changed (same ID). I was able to get in and all my old...

    If you use felt, glue it to some cardboard and then cut the cardboard to fit. It'll be a lot easier fitting to the drawer that way and the felt will stay flat. Plain felt has a habit of sliding and...

    Here's a couple of pictures of the Freud bits I bought, just FYI. It's been a long time so I don't remember what I paid for them.

  10. The problem with buying individual Forstner bits...

    The problem with buying individual Forstner bits is where to store them. When you buy a set you usually get a box that they fit into. (Of course, I suppose you could make a box).

    That said, I...

    This is not an answer to your question but I had a problem with a very old Bessey clamp and contacted Bessey. They sent me a replacement part free.

    I bring back memories and pictures.

    I do a blog of our travels and share it with a fair number of people. People have told me that it has helped them decide whether to take a trip to the same...

    I would add "And can make a decent living doing."

    I've seen too many people chase "glamor" jobs only to wind up with nothing.

    I didn't notice that it had changed. My memory is that they used to change it on a fairly regular basis so the way it is now is not strange - just another change.

    I've made a bunch of them and never had any problems with wood movement on the top. I think it's because the top isn't that wide - 8 inches in this box.

    I did find that I needed to leave 3/4...

    I used a full kerf blade on a 1.5HP saw successfully. You just need to go slow and listen to the sound of the blade.
