    I have a pet peeve of people who never follow up on threads that get good advice, so here I am.

    First off, I’ve now sprayed a half dozen projects and I’ve learned a lot. The most recent project...

    Re-reading your post, I’m honestly now sure what I saw the first time. Oops.

    Mark,

    Bosch makes an identical model sander to the Festool Rotex, for about half the price.

    Is your saw nicer than a competing hybrid (be honest with yourself). Probably not - which means you need to price according to what those would go for.

    Really though you need to see what the...

    I also went the Triton router / Incra mounting plate (similar enough to the Kreg) and I really wish I hadn't. The setup is so sloppy and inaccurate that I rarely use it, even in situations where a...

    Thanks John,

    To not disparage the blog I linked, he doesn't say 180 grit or 220, just 'sand after the sanding sealer' so that's what I did. Guess I need to go higher (though I will say this oak...

    I would be really surprised if the lightening strike took out equipment directly via the Ethernet cable and it wasn’t the AC system in that location that took a surge. Ethernet is mostly DC signal...

    HVLP Spraying Technique

    I dove into the world of HVLP spraying a month ago after finding a Fuji setup on sale. So far I’ve been very happy with the quality of finish given my experience level, using Target Coatings EM1000...

    I agree with Richard. Home Depot is not the right place to go for LVL’s. You might be able to call a small contractor and ask where they source their beams from. It might be ‘professionals only’,...

    Anuj,

    Universal motors are loud. Straight knife cutter heads are loud. I’m not sure which one is louder than the other, but moving from a straight knife lunchbox to a floor standing helical head...

    I’ll go against the grain here. I picked up a used 8inch Grizz jointer off a guy nearby. At the time I had a SUV. We took the fence off and put that in the car. Then we took the table off the...

    Carl, I think by ‘build the CNC’ approach what is really meant is a modular CNC, similar to an Avid CNC setup (formerly known as Router Parts CNC).

    I’d also checkout full machine dimensions and...

    Re: 2 speeds.

    I’m sure many home/hobby workflows make use of the 2 different speeds, but I can tell you, mine does not. I leave mine in the slow setting and don’t touch it.

    It’s interesting that Grizzly has moved to all ‘rough finish’ out feed rollers as your post says. I have a 454Z that I bought a couple years ago and it came with a rubber coated outfeed roller. It...

    So you have an oil-less air compressor. I probably had the same or a similar one. I upgraded to a slightly older oiled compressor and the sound has been cut in half if not more. There’s no...

    Lots of good info.

    I read the rules carefully and there’s nothing about hiring a rigging company. I’ll watch out for that in the future.

    This is a 3hp 20inch model. It’s literally identical...

    Buying from auctions and 3 phase power

    Well, I've jumped into the exciting world of buying tools at auction. I recently won a 3ph '220v/440v' Wilton 20 inch disc sander from a place ~10 miles from my house. Pickup is tomorrow.

    Why are sliding dovetails weaker? Is it due to the shorter ‘tenon’ length compared to a M&T? Volume wise a sliding dovetail, even if 1/2 as deep probably has more wood contact area for glue and...

    Matt, You are right, there are 4 bolts which attach the planar head/screw/table assembly to the base. You could take that apart. I doubt it would make the planar smaller for a door, but it would...
