    Mine's usually 55-60%. But the mini-splits thermostats are just usually set to 74 or 75 F. I can measure the humidity, but I don't try to control it. It's a losing battle for me too in Florida on...

    Am I just not hearing the noise on my PTE010R, or is my hearing that bad?

    When everything is off in the shop, and the Phase Perfect's fan is running I can hear the fan, and I can hear the relay...

    Funny, my 10HP unit is very quiet. It does make one clunking noise after the initial self check when it turns on, but that's it.

    I have both the Jet 2000 and the Jet 1000B in the shop. The downside of the Jet 2000 is that it's quite noisy. I replaced the outer filter on the Jets with MERV 13 filters, and filtering efficiency...

    Jim:

    I see you put two runners on your sled for the miter tracks. I've got two on mine also, but I've read posts with plusses and minuses to two vs one runner.

    Everyone's thoughts?

    So I pulled the trigger and bought a Mafell K85 EC with tracks and some accessories. My Festool TS55 was driving my crazy stalling in relatively thick wood that it should have been able to handle. ...

    I had one about 4 years ago that was propane. Really nice flame. Converted it to natural gas when we had some piping put in for an outdoor kitchen. Changed to the appropriate fittings (unit was...

    I was thinking of Scott's case where, I assume, the wood stove is running pretty continuously during many months of the year. I've never lived in Alaska (though I've visited several times, and once...

    Thanks, David. My brain went on vacation forgetting the logarithmic formula for the particle decay. Man it sucks to get old. :(

    Actually, read a bunch of articles on this. Supposedly no electric cars should be towed with wheels on the ground. There is a startup towing company in LA and SF which can provide charging, but...

    Interesting. It would take a very large battery on the truck. A generator, if it produces high enough voltage and current could, I suppose do that. To put this in perspective, hooking up a Tesla...

    Great chart, David. Thanks. That should be very useful for many people.

    So these filters really aren't efficient removing 0.5 micron particles until you get up to MERV 14 or MERV 15? They will...

    OMG!! That's so much better an approach then I've been using. I take out the Lenox gauge with each blade change, and get the blade to the optimum tension (I usually go for 25K).

    Nice tip, John...

    As far as I know, you'd have to be towed. It's pretty funny what the car does as you get really low on charge. It starts giving you less and less subtle warnings, turns off the A/C, reduces maximum...

    It's funny, though. Every doctor I know has an intuitive feel for metric weights in kg. But list a height in cm, and we all reach for our calculators to see how tall that is.

    If the sound is still an issue after adding rockwool, try hanging heavy moving blankets on curtain rods inside the closet. Easily available on Amazon. It led to an additional 10dB noise reduction in...

    I did that also a few years ago with my Laguna jointer/planer. It made a HUGE difference. Now you have to paint it the color of the Grizzly so it looks part of the machine(says the OCD woodworker).

    I must have used a film finish on the original board, though no clue why I would have done that, and don't remember doing that. I knew better, and designed the board to be used.

    Is the Mafell 85 or 55 vacuum outlet compatible or easily adaptable to Festool vacuum hoses? As expensive as they are, they are getting tempting with selling my TS55. Today again I had real issues...
