    Two saws is best. But if you can only have one, then get one that will take small blades first, since resawing isn't a primary chore for you. I have a cheap 14" with a 1/4" blade on it with a...

    Interesting history, Bob. I have an AMT drill press and it has been excellent. I've had it for 30 years (purchased new in 1989). Everything still works as new. It's a big table top model. Not...

    You can do everything with grinders you have. Just don't overheat the tools. The slower grinders help a lot with that.

    I have a 3400, a 1750, and a tormek wet. I'm also a new turner. I...

    I own one. It works pretty well, if you are careful. Just don't take too big a bite at a time. If your pieces are not exactly the same thickness, you'll have to be careful not to burn it by taking...

    I also do as John does. I'm still a beginner, but I find the mortise-first approach to be the best for me. Then you don't have to reverse it to remove the tenon. I use dovetail jaw sets. No marks...
