    That is a very nice Unisaw and I would certainly expect it to last. My 17" Delta drill press is good enough to keep me from buying a newer one. Unless someone brings something like the Nova or the...

    The decline and near-death of the Delta we grew up with is pretty well documented. Parts for any but the current half a dozen Taiwan (Chang Type Industrial) models are like hen's teeth. The Unisaw...

    I would use a bandsaw before I took after thick stock like that with a fret saw. The curse of being a hybrid woodworker; I always see a powered way to take care of the plodding sort of tasks ;-) ...

    It is unfortunate that so many drivers have such weak wrists and atrophied muscles that they can't move one finger to flip a little lever.

    Home stores sell a variety of small portable AC units. The price fluctuates with the amount of fuss automated out of them and their capacity. If you just want something to blow cool dehumidified...

    Let me be clear. I cannot take credit for this. I blatantly stole it from someone (whoever you are, thanks!). It was a video of a shop tour and I saw it in the background. I was lucky enough to...

    I agree a hidden (stopped groove) spline would be easiest to handle if I were doing a lot of this. For one or two I would use tape. I do not try to get the alignment set and then apply tape. That...

    Are mini fix connectors too lightweight for your purposes?

    My top is 3" thick and sets on four 1" dowels that are driven up through the base. When you get into these kinds of weights gravity is your friend.

    I think it is safe to assume the insects were in the tree. The holes were there when the boards were sawn. There are plenty of parts in furniture that do not require large clear boards. Take parts...

    That is a nice older Craftsman and they seem to go for about $100 if in working order. I have Grandpa's version that he bought new. He got the fence option (which is poor) and added his own motor. ...

    The thin glue lines have never been a problem for me. I scrape any squeeze out prior to running them.

    If you do not have brass shim stock for adjusting the top, washers and/or aluminum can "stock" can work.

    Congrats Eric. Very similar to mine that I have used for many years. Great for cutting sliding dovetails on the router table as well.

    No noise solution here, I wear hearing protection anyway ;-) Two Ridgid (so called) 6.5HP vacs. These are the models where the top comes off as a supposed yard blower. I put the tops on small...

    I am careful about who I buy from via the internet. Maybe because I worked in computer communications before and through the .com explosion. Kind of like knowing too much about the old land line...

    I hope you haven't taken things too far apart. Does the motor hum or vibrate when power is applied? If so then it cold easily be a $20 capacitor. There...

    I have some Morricone in the music library. A favorite is "Yo Yo Ma plays Ennio Morricone".

    The music from Once Upon a Time in America is truly haunting. I mean that in a good way.

    Great write up. Sounds like it worked out perfect. Just as a sidenote, the German heads in my Grizzly ThiChi machines use pocketed inserts. A great design for support and it makes it a breeze when...

    Just my experience with DMT over the last 17 years . . . First, I will say that my DMT stones have outlasted any Trend or EZ Lap stones that I tried, wore out and tossed. Second, coarser grits are...
