    Further to your point, I saw Roger Waters last year. I paid about $100 per ticket and it was worth every penny. The old Pink Floyd shows were always a sensory experience but Waters has taken full...

    I've heard that the music streaming model has basically devalued income royalties to artists from what we used to call "record sales". As a result, most artists make their income primarily from...

    If it's only for occasional use and you are resawing a domestic wood like cherry, save yourself a bunch of money and just get a good carbon steel blade like the Lenox Flexback or the equivalent from...

    In addition to the above applications, you can use it to cut dovetails. Here is a guy demonstrating how he made a dovetailed bench using an oscillating tool to help cut away waste:

    In case you might ever need the feature, consider that a dedicated track saw will have the ability to plunge cut (safely) in a way that a standard circular saw will not.

    If you're like some of us old dogs, you probably won't remember what you read in the oldest issues, so you can keep cycling through the collection and always be reading new content.

    I have seen it done up high (handle in fist) and also way down low (in the fingertips).

    I tend to choke up down...

    Hot melt glue is a good way to do this also. Sometimes hot melt can be used to secure pieces from the sides like a tack welder. It can then be cut with a utility blade or released with denatured...

    I swear by a brand called Intertape 591 double sided flat back paper tape. It has a crepe liner, and it is both strong, and removes cleanly. Amazon sells it and so do other sources.

    You're quite right Derek, this particular thread is about PW and actually holds out a little schizophrenic hope for it.

    I've found it counter-intuitive that a soft composite material like MDF can be harder on carbide blades than natural wood. I guess it must be because the slurry of dust and glue they use to make it...

    Shellac, if not on the whole jig, then just on the area where I label it with a sharpie. Otherwise the sharpie bleeds.
