    Building something that doesn't suck; still working at it...

  1. Worse part of that is the guy recruited to help hold the board; he's trusting the 'expert' to keep him out of danger. Maybe he won't get hurt that far from the blade if something goes wrong, but he'd feel horrible if the 'expert' got hurt while he was helping thinking he was the reason.
  2. OF-2200 has great DC. Both benefit greatly from the D-36 hose (stock with the vac is the "tool" hose D-27). It's true these have been asked before (not so much here), but then there was a time when every week there was a new "which bandsaw should I buy" thread, every other week a new "which plane should I get next" (without power, they can't post these repeats as quickly).
  3. My friends generally leave toddlers unfinished although I'm partial to a thick film finish like Duct Tape.
  4. You have 99 problems but...
  5. You neglected to use a minimum of 5 industry-insider acronyms; minimum 10 if the OP stated he's a n00b (not this OP)
  6. I think I'd try the heat gun first; the heat on the bearing will expand the metal quickly and likely pop it off. Same reason over-machining metal bonded to wood often pops it off: the heat expands it to pop it off. Then try acetone.
  7. I was thinking the same: use making this project as the motivator to get the bandsaw setup. It will likely take you the same time to setup the bandsaw as to rip all those boards
  8. Love it... excellent creative idea with the plane shavings!
  9. The Veritas router plane can do that, as well. Using the blade 'outboard' like that helps when the body would get in the way (like a chisel plane). The blades for the router plane also work for the hinge mortise plane, which might give other possibilities.
  10. They've been super active with the painting industry this year; wouldn't surprise me at all.
  11. Excellent, thanks for scanning that!
  12. Did you find balancing the thing easy enough? Does it need re-balancing from time to time? I tried something like this long ago and put it in a drawer because of balance issues; it didn't have instructions for balancing
  13. Silly as it seems, Lee Valley had a promo item at Christmas long ago that was a low-powered microscope. As the catalog said: "excellent, too, for examining tool edges". I got it for that and every time I have a problem where something doesn't seem right with a blade, I look at it under that toy and sure enough I'll find some flat spot that is somehow escaping the stone. Not suggesting you get it or a loupe, but it might help. Also what Graham said: when I got some PM-V11 chisels, I noticed the first sharpening took longer than my A2s. I have no O1s to compare. Now that they are sharp, though, they go a long time and the touch-up is about the same as the A2 touch-up. Hmm, looks like they now carry that microscope as a regular catalog item: http://www.leevalley.com/US/gifts/page.aspx?p=64257&cat=4,53201 Free shipping through end of today if you add enough to hit $40. That's too easy.
  14. Sorry, should have specified. I don't have the Bench Dog model; it's an older Woodpecker's table
  15. Mine's in my extension wing. Guess I haven't had to make another cut that required even moving the router fence to notice the problem, but that would be one. The advantage is the footprint. Since my tablesaw has a nice built-in mobile base, I can also easily move the router table.
