    I've watched Tom Johnson for about 2 years. In fact, I inherited a drop leaf table from a great aunt that had a warped center section. I couldn't work out how to get it back flat since it was...

    Jacob,
    I went from a Craftsman contractor saw to a Sawstop ICS. It was a wonderful leap. The next tool(s) I upgraded were my 6" jointer and lunchtop planer with a Hammer A31. After working with...

    Brian,
    I agree with Cliff. I built a Roubo with Benchcrafted plans and hardware as well. I used ash. The only comment I'll make is that the sucker and all it's parts are really heavy. I built...

    Patrick
    When I bought my Sawstop ICS about 8 years ago, I had to transport the pieces from Dallas to my home (about 150 miles) in my pickup. To assemble the saw, I first assembled the base and took...

    Gabor,
    I sometimes use my Sawstop ICS to make miters. I use a miter sled (you can find all kinds of examples around). It's just a cut off sled with a 90 degree angle split in two for the opposing...

    Mitchell,
    I have to agree with Marc. I live in Tyler, about 40 miles west of Longview. Finding good used machinery in this neck of the woods is rare. There really aren't any woodworking machinery...

    I have a 1976ish Craftsman RAS. I use it ONLY for crosscuts. It's mounted on a long table and I can use it to break down 12' boards easily. Once I got it mounted, I got it lined up and HONKED down...

    Johnny,
    I bought the 608 at the same time I bought the ICS. A Sawstop rep was in a Woodcraft store when I bought it, in fact he recommended it. But, to be honest the 608 had just come out and they...

    Jim,
    I have the 608 as well. I've used it for about 4 years and it still cuts bang on dados, even for wacko sized plywood. Setup is really easy. I use an Infinity throat plate form my Sawstop...

    Joel,
    I always disengage the rollers when jointing on my Hammer. It's part of the operating instructions.

    Jon,
    I have the 18-900L. I bought it about 3 years ago. I got it from Amazon with free shipping. It replaced a small Delta bench drill press. It has performed very well for me. I have found...

    Szymon,
    Man, being able to use teak for "secondary wood". We sure don't see any of that here in Texas!

    Brad,
    I used Titebond Extend on my ash Roubo. No problems, no open joints and easy to clean up as Prashun said. I ordered a gallon of the stuff as recommended by Benchcraft and had about 1/2 left...

    Thanks Ben,
    I'll contact Infinity. In the meantime, I'm not going to cut any dado's on a bevel higher than 1/4". I'll use a router table instead. That's what I should have done in the first...

    Ben,
    I cut the first 45 degree cut using a regular blade and then switched to a dado set up. I use a Freud 608 dado set 9 (the adjustable one). The lesson I learned is when using the infinity...

    Jonathan,
    I have this mortiser. I use the LV premium bits and have the same sharpening cones Mike has. I use waterstones as well for the final honing. These bits work very well. I've used them...

    Jim,
    Be patient! I had CABG x5 13 years ago. I thought that getting as active as possible as quickly as possible would speed recovery, the old "more is better" philosophy. That's where cardiac...

    Sta-Masters are a gift from God. I used to keep spare pins and ring dings on the boat for changing rig tension on the water. Now you use the main sheet to take tension off that shroud and...

    This is just like working on a boat in the water. Whatever gets dropped (spreader pins, etc.) heads immediately for the water. It's like they're running for home!

    Dave,
    I remember lusting after that TI Calculator. One kid in our advanced physics class came back from Christmas holidays (in 1971 btw). The professor wouldn't let him use it in class or on...

    Wakahisa,
    I built 2 40" wind AV cabinets using the same type of construction. I used 3/4" ply for the tops. I even stood on them while I installed the bookcases on the top. The bookcases are as...

    Thanks Brad and Roger. I think you're right. I'm going to stick with the ceiling. When it's finished, I'll post a picture.
    Thanks again,

    Thanks Tom. I understand. I used a laser level to find out things were out of parallel. Sometimes I "confuse precision with accuracy":D
