    All good suggestions here. We all find our way to air-tight miters. A miter saw is rarely it IMHO but some folks get lucky. I just use a well aligned tablesaw and a miter gauge.

    I agree with Cameron's post. Poor quality hinges can also drive you nuts. If the mortises are well placed and things don't line up I would look to the hinge quality.

    I have two G0513X bandsaws. One has the steel trunnions and one has the cast iron. Both use the same hardened steel teeth for the tilt function. I have never noticed any difference between them. ...

    Levels of quality have been with us as long as we have been doing things. Just because something is old doesn't mean it is carefully made. I'm sure there was one guy in the camp that did better...

    Trade rags move in a cycle. There is always someone who is at the point in their journey that they are looking at the tip you feel has been recycled and they are saying "Wow! What a great idea!". ...

    The JDS-750 that used to win all the bake offs now seems to be the Rikon 62-1100. I have an older JDS unit and it works great except for the remote control. Numerous reports of failure after a...

    Don't feel bad. The professionals that did my wallboard messed up the Rotozip step terribly on several outlet cutouts. You would think after a few hundred of them over time that they would get...

    Interesting discussion. Those pics look like they may be the result of an excessive feed rate. I have used the flutter method (see Suffolk's site) on my Resaw Kings since day one. I cut 1/16"...

    Agree. A screw extractor is basically a plug cutter with the inner diameter a lot closer to your screw size. I have also used a piece of metal tubing with teeth filed into one end. You generally...

    :D I have a few things that I added on on-the-fly as their value became more obvious. Instead of just outdoor lighting switches I added a convenience outlet in those positions (great for a corded...

    Mr. Cool was my first choice and they do make a well thought out product. I had distance issues and working through the challenges ended up going with Pioneer. I built the pathway into the walls...

    I always give the same response. When looking at saws priced at that tier the Saw Stop was the choice regardless of safety feature. The flesh sensing tech was just a bonus.

    It is easy enough to swap either plug or receptacle, your choice. I believe your question is directed at the circuit. Your circuit and device (read outlet) are spec'd for 30 amp service. As Mike...

    Sometimes things just aren't a good fit. I have a lot of K-body clamps and they are my go-to. Folks raved about the Jets so I bought a bunch during a Christmas sale. They are the most nefarious...

    Small areas and mobile tools are a good combination. A flip-top cart as Lisa mentions was one of my best investments in my previous small shop. I kept a planer on one side and the CMS on the other....

    Brick and mortar retailers are being driven to stock only those items that are sure to move at a predictable rate. The shopping malls have gone the way of the dodo bird. I wonder if warehouse-style...

    So many variables. What you do and how you do it will determine your end design. You are doing right in asking for everyone's input. This is the method I use for some things as well. I take all...

    The segments on a large width jointer allow the "pork chop" to snake down the side as opposed to swinging out into the operator area. The ones I have seen were shop made from hardwood laminated to a...

    Flattening with a router is great for large slabs. The surface yielded is not going to be as ready to work with as a jointed or planed surface. As always, work with what you've got. If you have no...
