    If the output will be clear coated and there will be multiple pieces that will appear together, logically, one would want the veneer grain to be consistent on the parts. If the output will be...

    Many of these units come pre-charged...the lines just need to be cleared out with the vacuum. If I'm not mistaken, some "Mr Cool" systems don't even need that. But for anyone wanting to self-install,...

    That's exactly what I did here in my current shop, Mike...the miter saw is upstairs where the lumber lives. I forget if I took you up there or not when you were here awhile back.

    I will admit that I really like cast iron for the "feel" and vibration dampening. The disadvantage is that you can't "roll your own" and you have to use accessories, such as lifts, fences, etc., that...

    I also use my miter saw for rough cutting lumber to length when it's over about 6' long...but that's about it.

    Most of my trunks have double locking casters. For those that are "travelers" I use larger casters so they are more amenable to rolling in less than ideal conditions. The road-case type handles I use...

    The aluminum version was a good idea for a number of reasons, especially for a 10' ceiling. The wood one here in our current house is somewhat heavy compared to the aluminum one in the garage of our...

    HEPA filter on the unit...and then vent back. You will not lose whatever residual heat you have that way. If you vent outside, there's no point to a filter at all and you have to make up that air,...

    Joe, that's exactly while I'll opt for the SC-3C when I make my move. I'm used to having those "things" with the larger saw and despite the SC-2C being adequate size wise for my needs going forward,...
