    With an 1/8" diameter bit, run the router wide open. I've never used a down spiral bit to trim veneer or laminate. Up cut or 2 flute works just fine.

    There are far better products than WD40 to lubricate a bearing. WD40 is nearly all solvent and will lead to a shorter bearing life. Why not use some real bearing lube?...

    It's not impossible Erik. Craftsman sold thousands of 6" jointers with a fixed out feed table. I owned one in the '80s and it took at least twice as long to adjust the knives, but it can be done.

    I like the pantorouter more than the Domino 500 I have. The pantorouter is currently at $1849 for the pro kit. Much more accurate in my opinion. When the wood is clamped down, there is no movement....

    You really have 2 problems. If I remember right, 1' of flex hose is the same as 10' of rigid pipe. And if that soft hose is basically bending directly in a 90 degree bend, that's probably the same as...

    To answer your question, a random orbit sander with 120 grit is not the way to cut out saw marks. Too much heat as you found out and it will not produce a flat surface. Drum sander, flat belt sander,...

    Maybe not a common choice, but it is on the list of wood choices at Whitacre's Furniture in Hudson, IL. They sell Amish made furniture and the Amish have their own sawmills.

    I wouldn't consider 500 pound machinery as heavy. I have a 3,000 pound lathe in my garage. It's not your worry. Just make sure they understand it's up to them to move before you take the money.

    Ball nose end mill or router bit was really popular with hobbyist turners about 25 years ago. I've never considered green walnut a super hard wood. It peels like a potato in my opinion.

    I'd tap away at the broken bit with a center punch. Hoping to shatter it into little pieces to fall out. Do they not recommend anti-seize compound on the screw when you install it?
