    I had a woodmaster 718 combo that I bought used and was happy when I sold it. It was a sorry excuse for a planer, though I didn't try it as a sander. I don't know if there's much support from the...

    There were times during the price spikes of the last couple of years when PT 2x4x8s were less than plain ones on the Lowe's and HD web sites. Both were very high, compared to previous prices, and...

    Yes indeed. It's certainly much heavier, and that is nice except for when I go back up Monday and have to get it up onto the mobile base. I met a buyer and dropped off my old (but 50 years newer)...

    I have been bitten twice while bicycling and had several near misses. My approach is if I am on my bike and a dog gets on the pavement and is close enough to kick, I kick it. In cold weather I wear...

    I use 80 on a 12" sanding disc and in the drum sander to shape or flatten things, but on the ROS I generally start at 120. I'm mostly not ending up with flat surfaces, so my workflow is a bit...

    The saw is now in the new workshop and put back together. There were no shims, so either it came without them from the factory or they were lost by someone(possibly the same person who lost the key...

    Thank you all, this is very helpful. I can't get it loaded on the pallet because the bus doors aren't wide enough, though it would be handy if I could. I hope to be able to keep it dry in the bus,...

    Thank you all very much for the help. If the numbers in the HD link are accurate then it must be compressed somewhat, because 12 batts at the size they specify comes to 17.79 cubic feet, and the...

    Thanks for the suggestions. My current table saw just dumps the sawdust in a pile underneath, so I can figure out the dust collection later on, when I get caught up with things. That's a good idea...

    Thanks, I'll take a marker and use it on the underside if needed. I'll first just check if the blade is parallel to the slots, because if it isn't there's no reason to replicate the misalignment. ...
