    I agree that the 1/2" version of the Trimaster may be more forgiving, but I haven't tried it. When I bought mine "a long time ago", it was the 1" version through the saw manufacturer and my MM16 is a...

    Bill, curved cauls exert more pressure in the middle where there can be no clamps. That keeps things flatter while the glue sets. An alternative is a taller caul that has more strength in that...

    Very valid question, Jamie. It shouldn't be an issue building things with screws to permit disassembly unless there is a bearing wall involved.

    For a building of that size and height, Post Frame is your friend...much more cost effective, easier to put up and stronger relative to the height of the open space. Even my smaller building decision...

    That's correct. A three axis machine "can" do lots of joinery cutting, but it's not necessarily the most efficient way to use the machine because of the jigs and setup required.

    BTW,...

    More mental gymnastics around potentially how to arrange things "in general". Note, I took the slider out of the picture for the moment as the model is for the larger machine I used to own and the...

    John, it's not necessarily the bits, although typical sheet goods cutouts are done full depth with compression tooling in production shops, often .375" diameter tooling for .75" material. A lot of...

    The majority of cabinet work has moved to CNC in the industry at this point...it's not really niche like it was a decade ago for smaller shops. It's a lot more affordable these days to the smaller...

    There are certainly times when a tracksaw shines for a particular option. But in the shop, especially for some kind of production, a slider is going to be both time effective as you note as well as...

    It's become my go-to for so many meat (and other things) cooking solutions for getting a more precise "done" for internal temperature before searing off. Most things, like steaks, etc., I'm shooting...

    Pretty kewel how they can use devices like that these days to precisely locate a leak.

    I use Sous Vide to pre-cook to interior temp before heading to the grill to finish over charcoal. A healthy portion of the desired seasoning goes on before the meat goes in the vacuum back and that...

    That's going to be a big "maybe" with a side of "difficult", I suspect. Everyone is slammed right now, both due to activity, but also because of lack of available labor.

    Honestly, that looks like a very nice machine, similar in size to the SCM/Minimax S315WS that I owned. The current version of the S315WS (only 10' slider now) is well north of $11K new for comparison.
