I have several of those architects adjustable lamps around the shop so we can adjust them for raking light during sanding and finishing. LED spotlight bulbs give me bright light without the heat and they have lasted much longer than the fluorescent curly tube bulbs . Only drawback is the weight (due to the heat sink ) , I had to replace several of the springs with stronger ones. My local hardware store had a pretty good selection.
I've now made a few boards and they're always well received. The mtmwood guy has some nice videos on chaotic boards, https://www.youtube.com/user/mtmwood. Also check out his CNC made inlaid boards - although not wood working in the traditional sense, I find it mesmerizing to see the process.
From other reviews I have read, where users had both resaw king and lenox, lenox lasted much much longer than RK before getting dull, to the point that the lenox was cheaper in the long run. Again, this is "from what I have read", so who knows...
I need to choose soon as well (except it's 233" blade), and the Woodmaster CT seems like the best bet.
This is very helpful, I am so new to much of this and I am finding it very difficult to plan something out when you don't know what you don't know. I have been reading about DC for a while just to try and set things up to start. After reading more the last 24 hours I know I won't hide the pipe in the walls. So with that out of the way, I am not on a deadline to get DC solved. I can set up my 240 runs as I had planned, spray foam, Stud and OSB then start building cabinets and such. I think I will deal with dust collection as I go.
Also at my stage of this hobby while I have 40x40 I am not ready to commit all of that to woodworking, perhaps in the future but for now I am just wanting to get going as I have really enjoyed working with wood even though I am pretty basic currently. Thank you all for the insight, I will continue to read up on the resources in here and hopefully not piss as many of you off with my future questions and endeavors.
I have enjoyed lurking here the last few weeks and hope to get more involved going forward.
