    Yup a glass of wine in a restaurant costs more but marital discord is not priceless. It isn't the amount, it's the principle. Other than a small pile of US change in the piggy bank I don't have any...

    Thanks for all your thoughts gents, I very much appreciate them.

    My kitchen was done in the same way Ken but as I said in the opening post I don't want to do that on the tables.

    That's a nice cast fan and probably not very strong. I would snake a wire between too adjacent holes and form them into a loop that I could get a slide hammer on. Then I would take a hot air gun and...

    More or less what I had in mind Sam. I suspect the table will be slid around more than picked up but a pack of ten fasteners should be strong enough to hold the wood base on.......I hope.

    I think the biggest problem for makers is the detection system and not how the blade is stopped. The SawStop detects the change in the electrical conductivity between the wood and your finger....

    I was hoping to find something like these undermount sink clips in a decent quality and hopefully in a stainless. The table (2 1/2' x 4' oval) will get moved around some and that's the reason to...

    The original Performax was a drum driven by the Radial Arm Saw motor, the drum support arm clamped to the column. It came with a pulley that was held to the saw arbor with the blade nut and washer....

    Here is a link to the Shrinkulator. It will show you how much the slab could move over the plywood that won't. I don't think much of his proposed method, I'm an amateur too though. I would consult...

    There was a remnants sale at a countertop place and we bought a slab of granite that they will cut into a small tabletop and a larger oval table top. We are going to use them outside on the decks...

    Nice compressor. A tank after it will act as a “surge reservoir” and dry the air to some extent too. I have a 5hp two stage 80 gallon compressor and it is quite loud.

    I don't have a shaper so haven't bought any. I bought a book from them decades ago about grinding but have always kept them in mind. I may be wrong but I believe corrugated washers will be needed to...
