    I would get a blade on there and cut some wood before I put another thought into it. Sometimes these forums will have you believing that you're dealing with F1 engines. Your blade will be under...

    Not true. Doing so effectively turns a ripping cut into a cross endgrain cut. Imagine trying to drive a chisel across endgrain as opposed to trying to take a shaving off the face of a board. Ripping...

    I'd like to hear the scientific reasoning behind the idea that only hand sharpening creates a truly sharp edge.

    I've got a Tormek 2000 that has served me well for years. It's just been retired in favor of the Veritas mk ii. It's just so much faster and easier to set up. I'm sure the abrasives will prove to be ...

    I think the cribbage factor makes it that much more wonderful and intriguing. It tells me a story about the owner wanting this to be a part of his life and not a conversation piece to impress...

    I have several Fein and Festool vacs. The Festools, imo, are better engineered with more thoughtful design, Both strike me as similar quality.

    I've burned through thousands of bits. I've never seen a bit break at the step down, I'm pretty sure I've never seen one machined as to create a stress riser. I've broken a couple of half inch...

    1. Makes it easier to get clean joints in between cabinets.
    2. Easier to manufacture. Flushing the edge requires tight tolerances or extra processing.

    No. Routing dovetails is fairly violent. The router often wants to jump around. The Colt would be way underpowered and too lightweight.

    Common drafting tools are excellent for this. I've also had to layout rather large grids of holes for modular commercial installations using nothing but identical rips of mdf and blocks made from...

    I use two. They're dedicated to the jig and once set up, don't get adjusted until the bits wear out. I'm not sure why they would say it would cause issues. Your more likely to have problems trying...

    Because they require rather large, well machined parts. Sheet metal and castings are cheap, machining is where the money is at.

    Almost through up when I realized the Gum talk wasn't about a species of lumber.:(

    I do a lot of thick veneer work. Hundreds of square feet at a time. Sometimes it cups and goes squirrely before it gets laid up. I see absolutely no reason why I need to flatten it to use it.
  18. I've never heard anyone refer to an ⅛" outer...

    I've never heard anyone refer to an ⅛" outer layer of wood as anything but veneer. I think the veneer vs facing probably has more to do with construction and utilization rather than thickness.

    You can cut non ferrous with pretty much any blade you have in the shop. A finer toothed less aggressively hooked blade will feel smoother and not grab as much. Lubrication is your friend, as the...

    Noise? It's how I tell the condition of a blade. If you heard a thumping from your car's rear wheel you would know it wasn't in optimal condition. If you bought four new tires and the buzzed like...

    There's absolutely no reason gluing and clamping a simple long grain joint wouldn't be sufficient. That's how they're done. Biscuits don't add any strength.
