  1. I made the DIY version last weekend. Although only good for one particular blade, it worked really well on a couple of test dados Maybe a couple thousands too loose but leaves room for the glue. While I was at it I batched out 3 more and will cut the kerf as required.
  2. Let us know how you like it. I have one of the previous generation and like it.
  3. It's cheaper to ship timbits to the US than a Sawstop to Canada....just saying. Good luck, eh!
  4. I did not know that.....Thanks. Jfitz.
  5. Double check that the infeed and outfeed tables are in the same plane. Raise infeed table to the same height as the outfeed table and lay a straight edge across both. It almost sounds like either the outfeed table or infeed table is sloping away form your blades. That can be absolutely maddening.
  6. I think this becomes a more important factor for solid wood projects with large parts like table tops or large panels where difference in moisture content through the wood could cause problems. I put one coat of finish on the underside of table tops, etc. For panel construction where there aren't any large pieces of solid wood, if think that is is less of an issue. I have an old, old wood filing cabinet with not finish on the in inside and, because it is panel construction - it's in great shape.
  7. Yeah, pictures 'cause some of us don't read so good. Welcome. Fun project. I like it.
  8. My first "shop" was a 4' x 8' storage space in the basement of an old apartment building. All I did there was clean and maintain my bicycle but it was mine.
  9. +1 (or +2) on the wiping varnishes like Arm-R-Seal by General Finishes. So easy when wiped on and wiped off. Now problem with runs like brush applied finishes.
  10. I am impressed and a little intimidated but................I like it, a lot. Great build.
  11. Nice work. I like it. I got a dovetail saw (22 tpi) and a 3" jewelers saw from Santa-wife and have been practicing hand cutting dovetails as well but still need a lot more practice to get the saw to go where I want it. I have a japanese (pull) saw that I was getting pretty good with but the kerf is so small that I could not follow -up with the jewelers saw across the bottom. The new dovetail saw (push) is coarser and harder to get it just where I want it. A few hundred more practice cuts needed. Have fun.
  12. Thanks for the additional pic. That's a fancy version of what I use. I like the track for the stops.
  13. Yep, Looks like their 1000, 4000, and 8000. I like them.
  14. I like the way you think.
