    • Vinny, what's up with wdwerker anyways?  He hasn't been around here in forever.
    • Moving in a month or two to philly and selling off all the big tools.  I'll rebuy them all again in time as I rebuild a new shop.  In the meantime, I'll  be focusing more on greenwork.  Once I built that shavehorse from a log with only a froe, hatchet, and t-shank auger, (Roy's original Episode 2), it's been hard to go back to dry flat boards.  List below is just the Powermatic gear.  Other equipment to follow. For all powermatic tools, I'm selling 20% off the current woodcraft or rockler sale price.   25% off current woodcraft or rockler sale price for buying more than 2 items Powermatic PM2000 cabinet saw - runs on 220 - will throw in a gripper with the 1/8" add-on Selling the below too            - incra 1000 miter gauge $95 -magswitch featherboard (the nice one) - $30 or $50 total for both if you buy the saw Powermatic 60HH 8" Helical head jointer (dovetail).   Runs on 220 -awesome Powermatic mobile base for jointer   Powermatic PM1200 air filtration system   Powermatic 18" variable speed drill press Model 2800)   PWBS-14 Bandsaw with powermatic riser block (makes it a 14/12) - does not have powermatic fence, but includes aftermarket Kreg precision fence with resaw guide   Powermatic mobile base for bandsaw   (p.s.

    • On our Rigid vacs that collect in the barrel, we run the Gore filters that can be cleaned with a water hose. I think I have five filters for the two vacs, so we have a dry one, while the wet ones are drying.   For sanding plaster, and cleaning up such fine dust, we use a Shop Vac with the yellow bags.  I just bought a new, large Shop Vac last week, for catching small diamond wheel Dremel dust, cutting old, installed tile.  The other one lasted over 20 years of a few hours of use a year. Those vacs have another filter inside the head.   If one gets so it doesn't suck good with a clean filter, take the motor housing apart, and clean the foam filter in there.  The motors eventually get tired, but they last for many hours.  We use them in too rough conditions to justify putting a lot of money into one. I've never seen these Vacmaster ones, but I don't get out much.  
    • Just get one of these... https://www.bissell.com/little-green-proheat-portable-carpet-cleaner-2513g   The info on the Vacmaster is useful.   I've seen them before, but never really sure if they were good quality or not.
    • Ah makes sense now.  Reminds me of a story from a friend of mine. He bought one of those Roomba or similar robot vacuums to try out. He had it running while at work and during the day he changed his mind and thought he would return it. When he got home, he found that his dog had left a large gift on the floor for him and that the vacuum had run over it and spread it around the house. Spent hours cleaning out the vacuum and the tracks it left.
