    I think GF claims they add UV protectors to their outdoor oil. Maybe a mildewcide, too, can't remember. FWIW, I've never found an outdoor oil product that lasts very long.

    Rubber feet almost always cause problems damaging the finish they sit on. Pure silicone, however, should not, nor should felt, as already recommended.

    Yes, seriously. There are solutions for problems that don't exist at every turn. Adjustable bandsaw fences being just one. Sort of like the new driver, or putter, or ball that will take 8 strokes...

    Bandsaws are such simple machines yet so much misinformation continues to be passed as gospel. There is a tracking mechanism on every bandsaw I've seen. It's purpose is to adjust the attack angle...

    Hard to imagine you'd need one in ND. I don't have one in NY and have no trouble spraying WB's and shellac. I have nothing more than the stock coalescing air filter/regulator on my 60 gal...

    Yes, I designed the spoilboard but would do it differently the next time. The 1/4" dowel holes are too sloppy for precision alignment. The grid is of no real value either. For my work, what I value...

    SW's A-100 Deep Base (I think that's the one) w/o any pigment added will dry clear and will last a good while. It has a good UV package in it to resist degradation. They will look at you like you...

    I use an old Sears TS guard on my Unisaw. It's mounted to an overhead arm so I can use it cutting dados. I use a shop built splitter for through cuts.

    You might need a new blade if it's the one that came with the machine but more than likely the machine still isn't set up right. A narrow blade will cut straight if the machine is set up right.

    Both ProClassic and Emerald Urethane feather in nicely with a brush. I can make ProClassic repairs look nearly invisble when I use a foam brush.

    If there's no damage below the varnish then just fill in the scratch with more varnish using an artist's brush. Add multiple coats until it's built back up level or a little above the unscratched...

    Jeff, what bits are you using in your CNC that give you cuts equal to a sawblade? Nothing I use in my CNC (straight router bits nor spiral end mills) comes close to the smoothness I get from a blade...

    Seems you've never used RM, Jeff, or you'd know why some of us use syringes. RM costs around $55 for a 350 ml can with catalyst. While expensive, those two little cans will cover approx. 400 sf,...

    I haven't noticed the paper towels I've used to wipe off RM getting even slightly warm. I lay them out flat to dry/cure, then throw them in the trash. I do notice that if I have a few ml left over...

    Well that was interesting. Under the conditions he did his testing Advance was very durable, and Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel sucked. However, all of his testing began only after he covered the...

    I'm not sure yet, Fred. I air dry lumber before putting it in the kiln. My guess is that it will dry like yellow poplar or pine, meaning quickly and without much problem. I suspect even the 8/4...

    You are the first person I've ever seen that said Advance dries super fast. I guess if you put it on thin enough it will do as you observed, but it sure won't if you spray on 3 - 5 mils. It will...

    First Time Milling Basswood

    A month or so ago my arborist friend asked if I wanted a 20" white oak tree. "Of course, thanks very much." When I got to the jobsite and he started cutting it, it was clear the white oak was...

    If you are going to roll it on then precat is out. Advance rolls on great but takes far too long to dry and cure, especially if you plan to live in there at the same time. Emerald Urethane Trim...

    White ash would be my choice, too. Steam bend to whatever shape is needed, then spiral wrap it with epoxy and fiberglass or carbon fiber, with an extra wrap around the area where the hardware goes. ...

    I've used GF's Extender with several manufacturer's WB topcoats w/o issue. If you want to roll your own, Extender is 1/3 propylene glycol and 2/3 water.

    Another option is to add some of GF's Extender to what you have. 5% or so will extend the open time so it has longer to flow out.

    Same here, I use a piece of silicone rubber sheet. It's 1/8" thick and has about 20% compression at 15 psi, IIRC, which gives you quite a lot of compliance to deal with veneer thickness differences....

    Build one and find out. It's not an expensive risk. Personally, if you start with flat stock and have a flat reference surface I think they will come out fine.
