  1. Congrats, that is a beauty. It shouldn't need replacing for at least 20 years.
  2. Not in Canada. Reattaching a finger would be covered. But the saw would be closer to $50K in Canadian Kopeks.
  3. Not sure, but I wouldn't stick my weiner in it as a test.
  4. Sawstops patents start to expire in August 2021. There is a possibility of them being extended to 2024. There are about 100 of them. They are written in the vaguest lawyer gobbily gook so as to cover the most area. Still, it's only a matter of time. I notice that Felder uses the term "reacts at light speed". SS patents include a reaction time for the mechanism, so that is probably the reason. They have tried to wrap up "flesh sensing technology" within their patents too. So Felder may be challenged on that point.
  5. Oh, you can bet Gass (inventor of SS) is working on how it infringes on SS technology. He is a patent lawyer after all.
  6. I have been subscribed to him for quite a while. My taste in style is not in the realm of what he builds, but his builds are executed so well that it is a joy to watch. The man is an artist.
  7. Vacuum the shop? Heck, I even vacuum the vacuum. In which case I literally become a vacuum cleaner.
  8. I think you did a great job and the bench is quite the accomplishment. Congrats and enjoy it for many years.
  9. I painted the OSB on my shop walls. I love how it brightens it up. I used a thick nap roller and bought a cheap 5 gallon bucket of white paint at WalMart. Shows the dust more but easier to clean too.
  10. Another +1 for the Gramercy. I got mine from Lee Valley also.
  11. Just to clarify a bit. The Benchcrafted tail vise is specified for a 4" thick top. It can be put in a thinner top by shimming, or a thicker top by recessing. Or, not use one at all and make the thickness anything you want.
  12. A typical hold fast like the Grammercy has a minimum top thickness listed at 1 3/4". After around 4" they seem to loose effectiveness and the bottom of the bores need to be counter bored. The top I have built is under 4". I can't remember the exact number. I haven't used it yet as I am still building.
  13. I once moved a whole wooden 10 x 10 shed on to a trailer using nothing but some 3/4" pipe, a car jack, a come along, and some boards. Being stubborn is a good thing some days.
  14. I have a couple with corrugated soles. It's not necessary for anything, it doesn't hurt any thing either. It was just marketing wank of the day claiming they glide better because of less friction. I haven't noticed any difference. It is marginally easier to flatten the soles on them though.
  15. It does not have to be a pressure vessel. If you use an inert gas, like argon, it is heavier than air and will "pour" into a tub. This will displace the air, and thus give you an oxygen free environment to bake your wood at. At least that is my theory. Nice thing is that argon can be had at any welding supply place. CO2 is also heavier than air, but not as heavy as argon, so more prone to be displaced by vibration and such, thus perhaps allowing oxygen (air) to come into contact with the wood.
