    Going to respond to this because it's somewhat on target and somewhat not.

    I donít have a sawstop, but on the Jet fence there were pieces of UHMW plastic that on each end of the T where it clamped to the rail and on the clamp. On my 2001 those had started to wear and the...

    I have the Oliver scheduled to arrive on Tuesday. Hopefully will get some time to put some cherry through it and report back. I’m replacing a 20yo 734, which I’ve been very happy with except for...

    Spaceballs recommends compressing no more than 1/3. https://spaceballs.com/. I would probably do 1/3 compression if I’m doing it in the summer and 1/4 otherwise.

    I would probably use pocket screws or dominoes to attach the mounts to the top. That way there isn’t any penetration of the top. If you did that, I would use stainless steel screws.

    I’d hesitate...

    Laguna PX|12 planer

    Does anyone have any experience/seen any demos of the Laguna PX12 planer? It seems like its claim is that it has a large radius insert cutterhead, so even though itís just using straight rows of...

    Definitely this. The idiots who installed my counter eyeballed the cutout for the cooktop (literally I handed them a template and instead they took the cooktop and used a marker to trace out what...

    As Glenn said, classic Zinsser BIN is shellac with white pigment so it looks like paint. I know I’ve been through many gallons of that sealing old oil-based paint, trim that wasn’t primed properly...

    The best explanation I’ve seeen is at https://shelixheads.com/SHELIX_for_dewalt_13_inch_Planer_(DW-735) which claims Byrd will exchange them for $50 (and 6 months of wait at this point). I don’t...

    From what I’ve read, some of the DW735s with the reduced size Shelix head had problems (I guess there’s some variance in alignment so some got less cut depth than others), where they had to be...

    I'm also new to spraying, just finished my second major project with my HVLP. The good news is it's not actually that hard, and good finishes, at least, are very forgiving. The bad news is that...

    I actually wasnít thinking about planer speed in terms of speeding up production, but in terms of slowing down to improve smoothness. I thought it would be interesting to do some math and spent some...

    Partially I think it depends on whether what you’re seeing is from the weather changes or if it’s more because there were stresses in the wood (either from the tree or b/c it was dried too quickly)...

    10A is not even vaguely an issue for a 12ga extension cord (as Ron said, until you’re at much longer lengths). I’d get something like 25’ so you can use it for other purposes/have flexibility in the...

    For those who prefer the combination machine, AFAIK they don’t have dual-speed planers, whereas I think that’s a standard feature on all of the (higher end) stand-alone planers. Do you feel that’s a...

    Thanks for all the great responses. Though I guess in some sense the answer is ultimately more depressing than I hoped, but at least I know I'm not alone.

    For my particular problem, I've decided...

    Personally, given the money and space, I would rather get a 12” standalone jointer and 20” planer. I think the powermatic with helical heads are also in that price range.

    A pin nail wonít be strong enough to fix any sort of bowing you might get with e.g. plywood, so your top & bottom would need to be perfectly flat.
