    Usually when it gets backed up, the chips are really compacted in there even if the port looks clear. Get some compressed air or a blower and blast it at the cutter head and all around.

    It smells like I just contracted cancer every time I step into their store. But the really troubling thing is I no longer notice the smell as I step out.

    If the miter slot is a t-slot with a matching t-bar, a threaded through-hole through the miter bar will allow a knob or handle with male thread to contact the bottom of the slot and “push up” the...

    It’s a little spendy but I love my Metabo paint remover. It uses carbide inserts like those found in a helical cutterhead. Dust collection is pretty good too.
