    I was thinking about the hidden bed bolts as pictured above. Or flip the common type around. And I 'thought' Benchcrafted had something like that for their bench kits. But they're the conventional...

    I'm thinking the veneer might be better with some reinforcement added. Like some light cotton cloth between the layers. Should work fine with ordinary wood glue. Probably be ok with synthetics, rayon...

    I was doing a bit of laminate flooring here awhile back. Cutting it to width by scoring with a utility knife and snapping it, notching with a handsaw with a step stool as a 'saw bench'.

    I was...

    I've got a 24". The table is low, so it's back breaking bending over to see the work for contour cutting. Never mind swapping blades, adjusting guides. So a smaller saw is on my list.

    The 10" was...

    My gut feeling is a much larger pipe would be more effective. Something on the order of a foot to a foot and half diameter, and 3 or 4 feet long. That kinda sounds like the tank on the compressor ;-)...

    Felder introduced an insert head on their machines. Kinda bummed me out that the parts were not interchangeable with the older machine I have.

    Fast forward ... Just taking all the (few) screws out...

    2x4 laying flat, and plywood on top? How much thinner does it need to be to mount the grinder?

    Any chance there's a diagonal brace close to where you want the grinder? If so, maybe notch the 2x4...

    I just recently made an adapter for the Jessems for my Felder. Have not used them yet. But, I have both the router table versions of these, as well as the Jessem feather board models. Have used both...

    I've done a few laminations of BB, clamping with cauls on a granite surface plate. 4 layers of 3/4 for guitar molds. Never got one to come out flat. Even with trying to orient the pieces so the warps...

    I used a 3/4 socket head for the coupler. Not shown here, forgot to bring the model of that home from my shop. It was threaded in from the back side of the insert on the 'ext_rail_rip' picture....

    I got mine with the 49" rip setup. Not having room for it, I sawed the fence bar off flush with the main extension table. That gives me 25" of capacity. I remember the look on one of the Felder rep's...

    Took me over a year, but I ripped off Derek's idea. I even used maple. 5/16" carriage bolts fit the fence rail perfectly.

    I'd previously made some aluminum adapters for the router table guides,...

    I've have/had a desire to add a 10" Rikon as well, once I get some actual shop space. Changing to a narrow blade, and bending over to do contour cutting on my big saw is annoying. The thing is,...

    Phenolic comes in many grades. 'Linen', and 'Paper' being common terms for 'some' in the industry. So if you don't run into any fibers cutting it it could be paper based, rather than canvas or glass....

    For something other than a straight with radius, you could try a panel raising cutter with the piece laying down. Or cove it on the tablesaw.

    I had my CNC machines hard wired in my last shop. But lightning is a small risk where they currently are. The little splash we had here yesterday has me thinking of cords and plugs. I know an open...

    A standard 3 foot liftgate is a scary proposition. Here's what mine looked like.

    I got it done. Along with my AD-741, FB-600, and a Lincoln 50 safe. Back breaking work, nerve racking to the...

    I've also seen fittings that aren't galvanized inside. Although they might have been before they were threaded. Which, of course, the external threads on the pipe aren't either. And, yes, I've seen...

    Stress/strain, in theory if you loaded a 1"sq bar with 29M lbs you'd double its length. 100% strain.

    For perspective, there are very few steels that can handle even 1% strain, 290k psi.

    I was looking at that a couple weeks ago. The compatibility list shows all the same routers for both, other than the 5625. Made no sense to me at all. I kind of assumed it was a typo that hadn't been...

    Very nice. I've done it on a drill press as well, but it was 3P and instant reverse. This is far more practical for most.

    Tapmatic is a popular brand as well, and should be easy to find used. And...
