    Just starting out... have a current project in mind to build a new office desk with a PC built-in. It's what started me on this journey...and now I am hooked on woodworking :)

  1. Looks like these are popular units. Got word this week that my dust collector is on back-order and is not expected to ship until February 22nd! I ordered in on January 6th... I am hoping they don't charge my CC until it ships as otherwise I will be a little ticked at Rockler.
  2. Nice Tack trunks... I almost built one and then my daughter decided that she should concentrate on college rather than riding horses... Her idea not mine Still have the mahogany plywood that I was going to use... I think they may become hope chests
  3. Now those make sense...essentially a low profile french cleat. I like it...
  4. Yep that was the motivation. I originally was looking at a dual 1/4 and 3/8 stubby socket wrench like this https://www.amazon.com/Titan-Tools-11050-Stubby-Ratchet/dp/B0000AXFQ8/ref=pd_sbs_263_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0000AXFQ8&pd_rd_r=RNXKCCNDYBN7JSR0RQTF&pd_rd_w=g5VI7&pd_rd_wg=VieCv&psc=1&refRID=RNXKCCNDYBN7JSR0RQTF but opted for the hex driver given my needs.
  5. Picked this little 1/4" drive socket/bit driver ratchet up yesterday on Amazon and got it today...gotta love how easy er dangerous that is don't ya I know it's not a woodworking tool but for getting into some tight areas when putting in a screw or tightening an awkwardly located nut on a tool I think it will come in handy. The quality for the price (~$20) seems outstanding...so I just had to share. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QO9DAE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. That is sad... I remember seeing photos of these tunnels as a child and being absolutely amazed...still amazed. Oh who has dibs on the wood?
  7. Just as soon as he takes them off his tree
  8. I use my Home Depot spindle/belt sander frequently...so for me it's essential. I like the versatility of the combo unit personally. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. Damn....!!! I never win bets
  10. For those who are really interested in seeing how these go together Laguna has done a good job with some setup and assembly videos... here is the one for the PFlux but they have one for the CFlux as well... Laguna PFLUX Setup and Assembly
  11. I wouldn't bet on it... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Good point on the shipping... looks like the coupon I had failed to apply. So add 75 to that price. I am upgrading from a 1.5hp Laguna unit...older (3yrs). I will post my comments as soon as I can, once it's installed. My primary tool is the CNC... the 1.5 HP unit just wasn't cutting it. This has significantly higher CFM so I hope it solves the problem.
  13. I had the pj882hh I had to sell it to support buying another tool... my blasphemous CNC. It was a very difficult decision. I can essentially joint with my CNC although it takes 10 times as long In fact I sold numerous pieces of equipment to finance that CNC...fortunately I was able to sell most for near what I paid for them. Jet unit is still in the same location.
  14. I have this exact unit as well. Like others have said I run it while working and let it run after I am done. The filter definitely capture a ton of dust as I clean it often. Some have argued that it just keeps the dust circulating in the air and that they only run it after they are done for the day. I think placement might have an impact... I have mine placed near the ceiling on the long side of one of my walls... my amateur theory is that it creates a circular air pattern in the shop and thus captures dust more effectively. It's likely I am completely bonkers as well .
  15. Agree completely...my restrictions forced this decision. I would have preferred to make the Clearvue work. As some have said in other reviews the shorter cyclone will require more frequent filter cleaning or replacement thus why i expect they added the sensors on this model.
