    There's no one way that's best for sure. I LOVE my holdfasts and use them a lot. In fact, they are the reason my bench top has three rows of .75" dog holes in thicker material surrounded by the 96mm...

    It's still a business, Dave...some may be more informal about it, but this forum area is not going to be limited to any one small group. That's not its intention nor why we've set it up.

    Tom, there are many of us who take commissions but don't earn our living from woodworking. The business concerns are the same outside of scale.

    Nope...only about 6 miles "as the crow flies" and the 'Creek is in the same place. My shop moves, too...I'll just have a smaller space for a bit until I can build a building.

    I do a very careful and tight twist to get a great mechanical connection, snip the end clean and then screw on the wire nuts. If I'm feeling really anal, I'll tape them, too.

    I will probably be shooting for 20x30 or 24x30, give or take. Some of that comes down to zoning and some to money and appearance. I'd certainly like larger, but this at least preserves...
