    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. After a rather gentle email to Rockler indicating my displeasure regarding how they handle these kinds of transactions I was rewarded with a bribe. They are sending me a $75 gift card. I do appreciate the gesture and understand that they are at the mercy of the manufacturer regarding inventory. I still will hold to the fact this will be my last Rockler purchase... well when I spend the 75 bucks that is...after all I'm not refusing the bribe Oh and JP no need to apologize to me at least... I bought this unit based on my own research and requirements...but it you feel real guilty I do accept bribes as you can see...
  2. Click baiter Nice getting the saw!
  3. Thanks Tom...great idea and I will reach out to them and see if they can get it to me sooner.
  4. Rockler is on my @#$t list. CC charged and I won't have my DC until early March. Probably about a 2mo wait. Yes I understand standard business procedures etc etc... I won't be going to Rocker for any future purchases... waaaaaaaabulance wailng loudly
  5. I can vouch for cncrouterparts... I have 4x8 system and it's great. Total all in cost was about 11 grand. However they make smaller units and without all the extras. Definitely check out their website. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Now those make sense...essentially a low profile french cleat. I like it...
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. Just as soon as he takes them off his tree
  13. 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
  14. Damn....!!! I never win bets
  15. 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
