    As far as I know, BIN uses dewaxed shellac. I have used it under pigmented WB products for more than 10 years and never, ever had a bonding problem, including Duralaq and ProClassic.

    I assume you are talking about passage doors, not cabinet doors. I've made exterior house doors both ways, and other ways, too. You will find some who argue all doors should only ever be made with...

    Zinsser BIN white pigmented shellac primer would be a better choice, IMO. It has a viscosity of only about 30 sec. through a #4 Ford cup and you should have no trouble spraying it with the 1.5 mm...

    I've shown this here before. You can make your own tension meter for the cost of a dial indicator, some scraps of wood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. I found this basic design on YouTube.

    Mike, a few months ago another Creeker measured the tension on his brand new FB510. He could barely get to 25 K psi with a 1" blade on it; IIRC, the spring was just about fully compressed to do it. ...

    Next time make sample boards, start to finish. Those would have told you that it would turn orange, and whether or not it eventually goes back to pink. Now all you can do is hope it does.

    If you want a 20" I'd go with the MM20, or whatever it's now called. If you want something closer to 16" I would get the 17" Grizzly G0636X. In fact, that's exactly what I bought three years ago...

    I had an Inca J/P for 25 years. Awesome machine, especially for someone with limited space but not limited ambition. That little machine punches way above its size.
