    • If you have questions please ask. I wish I could show you in person as it helped me a lot to learn but we don't live that close to each other.
    • Thanks for your detailed reply Chestnut, I'll try that out with a test piece. I was using a utility knife but I think I was pressing too hard and trying to cut too much at once. I'll try it following your advice of light cuts and I'll also follow your suggestion for handling the end grain.
    • Coolio.  I like the mesh bottom ones so spoil doesn’t collect. It’s a trade off; sawdust and spoil fall through to the floor but the bottom is a regular so things can be wobbly if they are too tall Like glue bottles or small aerosol cans.
    • This isn't a review of a specific product but more of a review of a product idea. I bought some of these magnetic shelve things off amazon to use as storage on machines. Most of our machines are steel and magnets stick well to them. I always loose pencils tape measure ect, and always have the Allen wrenches and other accessories that you need to adjust things. Before i used the parts treys which work but they made the Allen wrenches rulers and other steel parts magnetic which became slightly annoying. The shelf is a much better idea as it allows me to also hold non-magnetic objects close at hand. I have one on the front of my table saw that holds the adjustment tool for the incra miter gauge my table saw nut wrench and some allen wrenches for various jigs ect. I also have one on my bandsaw that is more centrally located that has a ruler in it (it's below the edge) a bunch more allen wrenches. and has more tape measures that are in plain sight. They have a weight limit and won't be able to hold a TON of weight but some hand tools rulers and a couple tape measures aren't half of what they can hold.
    • I have a lot of the 6" jorgensen clamps pre-sell-out and have loved them and use them a ton. the 6" is probably my most used clamp in the shop i have them everywhere. Before they sold to Great Star or which ever Chinese company they were $8-10 each. I should go get a pack, it'd be interesting to compare them to the older ones.
