    I use an old, metal filing cabinet to keep my helmets, face shields, and some other welding stuff in. I'm sure it's not totally insect, and dustproof, but I haven't had any trouble with either. The...

    I've had nothing but perfect blades, with perfect welds from them. Something probably happened to that band before it was welded, and not necessarily there. I've never had to contact them for any...

    I have a good one, and one of the 50 buck ones from Northern Tool. The cheap one works fine, but does have a smaller window, which doesn't often matter.

    The few times I've done it, a good, long level was plenty good enough. If you can straighten two long boards after adjusting a jointer, and they fit together perfectly, that's a good enough test for...
