    Will your sanitary sewer (there's an oxymoron) not handle the back flush? 100 gallons isn't that much.

    I've heard a lot of really good things about Harvey machinery lately. I wish they had them in stores so a person could actually lay hands on them. @Doug Walls what features do they have that SawStop...

    I built a 'sound proof' closet for my compressor and 5 HP dust collector along with some shelves for storage. It has a cyclone and a HEPA filter. No dust at all, like not even a trace. As with Paul,...

    Right you are! That surprised me. It also surprised me how much more expensive they are now than when I bought.

    Most who have a 1.75 HP will tell you it's plenty. I've had a 1.75 HP (Jet) and a 3 HP. You can get by with the smaller motor, but the bigger one is that much better. If you are considering...

    My Honda has such crappy GPS that I never use it. The voice directions come through on the car sound system fine when using the phone GPS though.

    I agree. Use the area near the ceiling for horizontal runs & just drop straight down to outlets. It makes changes easier and the pipe doesn't get in the way of other fixtures you may want to wall...

    You should check code on that. Here, you cannot run non-metallic cable on a metal surface without providing insulated spacers. And cutting the backs out of the boxes will certainly void the...

    No, the conduit can serve as ground, but that's a practice that is often frowned upon by engineers (for good reason). If you do run a ground wire, it must be sized for the largest circuit in the...

    EMT hands down looks best for surface work. But you have to take some time to learn how to do the bending. Elbows are easy. It's the offsets, kicks and saddles that are a lot harder to have look good.

    Sorry, the stain's at home and I'm not. It is a fairly heavily pigmented stain that, depending on how much it's rubbed back, can give it a very white washed or pickled look to just slightly pickled....

    It may be the way the photo shows, but I'm convinced that there is more than just a water white clear finish on it. Even a colorless finish warms the wood up a bit, even though it's not adding any...

    Laser distance meters are not really suitable for woodshop use. Even the most accurate ones have the same error weather measuring short or long distances. I have a Leica Disto that was over $800 and...

    Good catch on the fan Rob. I thought it seemed too cheap. Now that I think about it, just the termination cost to an explosion proof motor could easily more than double the price of that fan. That...

    Exhausting it outside in summer would be the answer to the heat. Even blocking the inlet entirely would not bring it down to 5HP. I bet getting the load down to 20HP is probably as low as it would go.

    That's a great price. They are cheap enough that you could add a second if it doesn't provide enough airflow.
