    Also, is this a slider, a compound miter, or an ordinary miter saw? Perhaps the model number would be useful too.

    I don't have a very thick beard growth, but the hairs are thick and tough. I used a braun for years until they cheapened the blades to the point where they dulled quickly and were stupid expensive...

    Don't have a brand recommendation for you, but be aware that many of the higher end manufacturers won't warrant the flooring on DIY installs, since so much depends on proper installation. When I...

    Dennis, a 4' x 12' table presents all kinds of challenges, glad to hear it is coming along. Bill, hope your surgery was effective and recovery fast. Don't think I would want to watch, though!

    Lots of great ideas Derek, thanks for sharing them! How do you hold the top to the drill press table?

    I made a similar maple rolling pin for my wife 15 or 20 years ago. I used sealed bearings of some type (too long ago to remember exactly), epoxied into bored recesses at each end. They are still...

    True Bill, but near every hot wire is a neutral and a ground, and if you managed to touch the hot wire, not hard to imagine you could also touch one of the others.

    The bandsaw manual states 1.5 HP (max developed) but no mention of RPM, just the blade speed in FPM. Pretty good chance that it's 1725 RPM, as that is common. The part no. of the motor itself is...

    I think it's personal preference, but you want it in proportion to the piece. I agree with your leaning toward 1.5".

    While you're experimenting, make sure a tall person won't whack his or her...

    The other element in this equation is the start switch inside the motor. It connects the start winding when the motor is not turning and disconnects it after the motor comes up to speed. It's...

    I've used Big Stretch Sealant to fill similar gaps, stuffing backer rod into the crack first. But it will take a bunch of tubes to fill that big a joint and it's expensive! And I think 1" is about...

    Sellers of heavy stuff always have a bad back :rolleyes:

    Looking at the grizz 8 x 72 dovetail jointer: it comes in two chunks, the machine and the stand (probably with motor). They quote 390...

    Great form of therapy Derek! That sweet DP is on my wish list too and I was tempted by the recent sales, but it will have to wait until the toy--ahem--tool budget recovers.

    To "expand" on Jim's point a bit: you don't want pex clamped tightly because it expands and contracts with temp changes more than, say, copper. So pex clamps are designed to allow some movement...

    I'm not much of a turner, but those sure look like marks from the lathe center on the top. I can only speculate that the square portion was let in after the leg was turned.
