    The switch I put on my router table is not a magnetic starter, but is a magnetically held switch. If the power fails, the contacts open & the switch has to be manually turned back on when power is...

    Thanks for posting this Will. I bought a japanese framing square from Lee Valley & it's very accurate, but it was over $80.00.

    Given the scope of work & the 'proof of concept' 10 YO installation, I'd leave the particle board too.

    I've always wanted one of those, but I only use a grease gun once or twice a year at most. I just think they're neat. Cordless caulking guns too.

    I don't know of any jurisdictions that require a bonding conductor in EMT, unless it's in a slab on grade. But no one in their right mind would put EMT in a slab on grade. Some projects have the...

    Please reconsider the drywall. I've had it both ways & currently have painted OSB. I would not want to go back to drywall. Plywood is more expensive, but would give you the clean look.

    Ole, I'm interested in your insert. Did you drill the holes it it, and how well does that contribute to dust collection when just shaving the edge off a board?

    Darcy, your comment made me go back & have a better look. At first glance, I just saw something neo-rustic with a bad stain job, got turned off & looked no further. My bad.

    I now agree that it is...

    That's a very nice installation Peter.

    But a metal cutting saw will cut faster than an angle grinder & leave virtually no burr. Just a really quick swipe with a file will take away any sharpness.

    Nor should it be used exposed outdoors for long runs without the proper expansion joints. It expands & contracts like crazy with temp change.

    I did all the cutting on one of those plastic tables with the folding legs, which are great general purpose things to have around. The duct was marked with a Sharpie and a piece of heavy poster board...

    But Jim, EMT is so much prettier. I love doing conduit work & I get almost as much satisfaction out of building a beautifully done rack of EMT as I do out of a piece of furniture.

    Besides being terribly ugly (to my eyes), I can only imagine that it's a pretty bad saw to try to keep in tune.

    Just how many cuts will you be making? I really don't see the need for a roller jig & think you'd have to make 100's of cuts to recover the time it will take to make the jig. Sometimes simpler is...

    That saw would be great if your installing that stuff all day long. But I found a jig saw with an 18 TPI blade to work very well. Since installing the duct I bought a Milwaukee M18 6" metal cutting...

    Check your local electrical code. Here 1/2" EMT must be supported at least every 60". But I think your idea is a great one.
