    I have one of the Rigid combos and it works well for me. Triton/Grizzly/WEN/Harbor Freight all have a different version that appear to be clones out of the same factory. From a value/utility...

    I'm with you, Lloyd. I hate haggling. When I put things up for sale, I price them fairly but also based on how quickly I need it out the door. The worst is when I'll put something for a super low...

    Interesting thought on the granite. Could be done by eliminating the need for a supporting rabbet using these. Probably attach them by creating threaded holes with epoxy (or by setting threaded...

    Wow, thanks for the info. Haven't cut any "new" pieces of MDF recently, but I'm certainly going to consider using bypass mode as well.

    Where did you get the MDF? Do you happen to know the...

    Hadn't thought of adding ballast to the opposite side, but of course it makes sense.

    As for the angles support, this plan for an outfeed table provides the principle. You're just putting it on the...

    If you want to maintain mobility, I think the simplest solution is to replace the integrated casters with something like the Grizzly Bear Crawl base and add the extension to support legs for the...

    If you're looking for simplicity to get started, it's still worth the $45 to get an adapter plate and insert rings. Cut a recess (using your router), then shim in level with some masking tape....

    If space is an issue, a track saw and MFT/crosscut table will go a long way. I'd highly recommend taking a look at Peter Millard's 10 Minute Workshop videos, as well as his 10-part series on track...

    Nice work. I also recently resurrected a 5hp ICS that looked like it got rained on at a technical college. Fortunately most of the damage was just a top that needed cleaning, new fence faces, cabinet...

    In what way isn't it flat? If you have it shimmed so it doesn't move and you're taking material over the entire top it makes me think there's something off about the sled/rail setup.

    I agree on the Spax. Definitely easy since they are widely available (in the US). However the selection is somewhat limited in the shorter lengths (especially if prefer something besides...

    I gave up trying to stick to one ecosystem. At some point I realized that (in my situation) choosing one brand was a self-imposed, artificial limitation.

    I started with DeWalt 20V, and that's...

    A couple coats of paste wax on tempered hardboard should allow glue drips to "pop" off.

    Not trying to dissuade you from the formica. I actually prefer it from an aesthetics perspective.

    Agree with everyone on the faces. I successfully replaced mine with some 80/20 aluminum extrusion and am pretty happy with it.

    I think it probably would hold up better, but at a price premium. You also have to deal with the hassle of laminating it to a substrate. You could replace the hardboard like 4 more times to equal the...

    Making Cheap Adjustable Miter Bars

    Finding the right DIY miter bars for jigs has been something of my own white whale over the past few years. I've tried everything: UHMW, aluminum, hardwood, store bought, homemade. Never been quite...

    Thanks. I had considered whether the trim/door was something like Southern yellow pine, but the ply definitely didn't seem like that. Makes sense that they might be different. In the end, doing...

    Wood ID?

    Just moved into a new house, and planning some projects but needed some help. House was built in the '50s (in Wisconsin), midcentury modern, and essentially all of the original wood...

    Good news. Glad they were able to get you what you needed.

    The Microjig MJ Splitter will work, and certainly is the cheapest option. Otherwise I'd go with a Shark Guard. I think the stock...

    Second the idea of contacting Jet directly. I doubt they're still making replacement parts, but they may know of a clone out there that would work.

    If that doesn't work, you should be able to...

    The term you're looking for is "circumscribed". See here for an explanation. In the case of an equilateral triangle, the radius = side/square root(3). In your case, that would be 11.547. Closest...
