  1. @Spanky He has a mill and kiln in your neck of the woods.. I tagged him so, hopefully he'll respond.
  2. I'll second the HH in both machines! As for the machine, you have quite a few machines on your list! I think you'd be happier in an 8" machine and I haven't looked at any numbers. Would be a tough choice for me between a 6" machine with a HH and an 8" machine with knives that I could upgrade later.
  3. In that case, he should have access to a rivet squeezer which will go much faster! This is what I got my training on... Many moons ago!
  4. My Air Force sheet metal background coming out, sorry.. Just a heavy steel surface used on the back side of a solid rivet to form the "mushroom" head of the rivet. Heavy because it helps eliminate bounce.
  5. The head of a second hammer will work well as a bucking bar to pean the other end.
  6. I'll say this as just another woodworker, not an Admin here.. I care so little about CNC that if there was ever a reason to cram one in my shop, it would be bought.
  7. I removed the link for now but, I tend to agree.
  8. I use hardboard as the top layer on my assembly table. I screw it down from the top so that it's easily replaceable when needed. Simply pull the old off and use it as a template for the new. About 15 minutes to replace every few years or so. I usually toss a coat of wipe on poly on it so that the glue pops off easily.
  9. Obviously, there are certain bits that I borrowed from OSHA or some form of a dictionary but, the work is mine. You are certainly correct about the PAPRs but, I didn't go a great deal into depth on them because they are pretty cost prohibitive. They also make one that fits under a welding hood that's commonly referred to as a "yoke" in the industry but, it's not really relevant for the woodworker. Proper fitting PPE is always a struggle because one size does not fit all! Even though the refineries I work in all provide PPE free of cost, I typically purchase my own (except respirato
  10. Thanks bud! I know I've gotten better about using PPE in the shop as I've gotten older.
  11. Since a lot of this is what I do in my day job, I thought I'd toss it out there for you guys. I'm sure most of you guys know this stuff already but, hoping someone gets something from it.. Respiratory Protection – Breaking Down What You Need in the Shop The woodworking hobby is a very dusty hobby that requires respiratory protection. The hobby also has the woodworker in contact with many other chemicals and substances that also requires respiratory protection. Unfortunately, not all respiratory protection is the same and there’s not a lot of information in the community to help th
  12. I removed John's phone number.. If someone can help him, please use PM or go through one of the staff if he doesn't have enough posts for the PM function to work. The only one I can think of is @Boatworks Todaybut, I don't think Andy is exactly a close neighbor.
  13. He hasn't been on in nearly 11 years.
  14. Yes, the name lasts forever unless the entire account is removed. If the account is removed, so are their posts.
