    Some final photos of the Thing: The doors don't close firmly because of the SOSS hinges (I don't recommend them) so I will probably add some magnets, but that shouldn't change the appearance much.

    Got the tail vice installed today. Router walked a little on me, but I got her back in line. Took a video of the movement but can’t post it. I consider this a milestone. Hoping to keep the wind in my sails now that I have started back on this project.

    Yeah it is. 11 hours, that's a shame, but it is one helluva a nice ride if you have the time . 3 Mountain passes, ain't nothing if you know how to handle them. Winter on those could be a PITA though. Has been for a lot of folks. especially heavy trucks. Having spent most of my adulthood driving coast to coast, 11 hours ain't that much to me. And in some ways I kinda miss it, and no, I won't come get it for you.

    Absolutely nothing. There is no contact with the upforce, the equivalent of the danger on a table saw. Maybe short stock introduces some tip out concern?

    The group that RonnW running with in the pic, I would say he had to raise his hand to get to talk.

    It is known as.... the AMPUTATOR I've noticed that most other countries expect product users to actually have some idea about what they are doing.

    Dave I need to see a new pic of you. I don’t think you can grow a beard like you have in a year and half. What did you shave?

    Have you looked at the PM200 for sale in our for sale thread? It's a good looking saw and it's a ride for you. But check it out.

    Guys with no beard have their ears full of hair, and can't think or hear.

    I think it's the sheer amount of exposed blade that gives people the heebie jeebies.

    Taping and floating use to be a challenge, then I found a guy that does that for a living, and a whole lot quicker and better than I thought I could.

    LOL....... I can’t tell if you are in or out. I don’t like to go shopping with a woman.

    This is the first I've heard of Origin, I googled, and find it to be an interesting tool, but at my age, it's out of my range. I wouldn't want to pass it on before it paid for itself.

    Yea, that's an easy answer really.. I just wanted to wait a few month to catch up after the shop build.. It also means that I can't in good faith sell the old saw per the plan. I won't take money for something that I know is broken and I had a buyer for the old saw. I've sent them a note letting them know that they're better off buying a different saw.

    I think I've been guilty of all three at one point or another in my woodworking life. I've known people who fell firmly into one camp or another, particularly the latter. Sometimes when I'm introduced to a really nice maker line I'll find myself coveting the whole line. I did that when Bridge City first came out. Today, it doesn't matter to me much. Quality, feel and performance are most important now. One of the finest craftsmen I know is a fellow instructor at SFCC - Ivan Dimitrov. If you could see his collection of carving tools you would understand why SeventyFix hit the nail on the head. Swiss Made? Check. 3 Cherries? Check. Auriou, Hirsch, Flexcut? Check, check, check. Ground down screwdrivers and files? Check. Anything that gets the job done.

    It’s been a while, but finally getting back to the Roubo. Got the front laminate strip glued up today. Have some gaps on the tails, but I can live with it. Will probably end up filling with epoxy.

    Probably not much help but i just took delivery of a Grizzly G0858 (8" Parallelogram Spiral Cutter Jointer) and the machine really doesn't vibrate much at all. My only problem was that the inserts on the spiral cutter head all needed to be removed and cleaned along with the cutter head itself. I was getting some visible lines lengthwise when jointing. After cleaning and reinstalling the inserts, it cuts VERY smooth! Vibration of the machine itself is very minimal, i'd assume yours should run the same. My old Delta 37-207 vibrated a bit but still made very clean cuts. Good luck with your new machine!

    I generally match my tools. Almost all of the tools in my shop are woodworking tools. I keep the car tools in the garage and the garden tools in the shed. It's nice to have all the matching tools together in the place they get used so i don't have to go searching for them ...
