  1. I didn't take woodshop in highschool, but I do rimimber the kids shooting the nail guns at cars in the parking lot.
  2. I have both the Kreg and Blum jigs in my shop and they work pretty well for installing drawers and slides.
  3. I have both types of saws in my cabinet shop. The sliding saw I find very useful for braking down ply, but thats about the only use I have for it. Its a bit of a pain to try and rip small stock on it. That being said If i just had one saw I would go for the regular cabinet saw, If you get a 52" fence it can still handle breaking down ply. I find that ripping and dado operations is also much easer on the cabinet saw.
  4. I just got back from Springfield, all though I got a little preview of the tent sale and its gonna be awesome as usuall for the ones who go.

    Dust collection

    I had an HVAC co. come out with a airflow meter.

    Dust collection

    I have a 1600 sq ft shop and I went with a 5HP grizzly Cyclone, I'm very pleased with its performance. My longest run is 36' and it has 1461 cfm at the port.
  7. My hand tools, I spent over $500.00 on them and I just never use them.
  8. I would go for the Earlex HV6900, there going for right around $500.00. I have the smaller Earlex HV5000 uses the same gun as the 6900 just has a smaller turbine. I could not be happier with mine, I'm shure that the 6900 will be just as good as the 5000 that I have.
  9. I've been building cabinets out of a 12'X16' shop, its not easy but can be done. I think if I was in your position, and had the money I would go ahead and get the 14X24 bld, I got the 12x16 and have wished that I got the 12x30 ever sence.
  10. I've had the Dewalt for a few months now, but I've only used it once. I preformed like a champ it fit well in my hand and the bit visibality was pretty good. I have not really felt the need for the variable speed yet, but I might use it one day. My only regret would be not getting the one with the plunge base in the kit other than that its a good little router.
  11. Hey, how did you get the sketchup model of my shop.
  12. I had a similar problem with a brand new 40 tooth Frude combo blade in poplar a few months back. The blade had a slight warp in it causing it to leave burn marks and the different depths of cut just like in your photos. So if you haven't checked that, it might be worth checking your blade with a strightedge.
  13. I done 45 or 50 sets of hickory cabinets, at my last job. So its a safe bet that hickory is a good wood for cabinets. Be shure to post some photos when your done.
  14. The cabinet shop I worked for had to do the same thing a few years back. We moved the whole shop even the cnc router and our 51" belt sanderand our 30 hp dust collector. If you don't hire the job out you will need "machinery skates" there at about any industrial supply. We used a local towing Co that had flatbed trailers to load the large machines on to. The smaller stuff and supplies we loaded in to our delevery trucks. I you don't have a loading dock you might need a small craine to load the machinery on to the trailers. Oh and a fork lift will come in real handy if you don't all ready have one on site. Best of luck to you in your move.
  15. I have the same drill press and I have never used clamps to hold a workpeice down on it. But It has t-tracks on the table so the t-track clamps that Rockler sells would probably work on it.
  16. My votes for the Grizzly. Just because of Grizzly's warrenty and customer service. I don't know that HF would be as good as Grizzly, if something were to happen to the dust collector.

    dust hose

    Grizzly's price for a 10' section of Black 4" hose is $11.95. So its about a $1.20 a foot even cheeper if you get a 20' peice. Of course you will have to pay shipping, that was $7.70 when I oredered some hose on the 29th.
  18. It looks like the only difference between my jointer and yours is the name plate. Gotta love those gold tools
  19. I probably should have mentioned that all of my machines are run on 30 amp twist-loc receptacles, but I do have 3 20 amp receptacles but they run off of the 20 amp lighting circuit. But thanks for your concern.
  20. On my shop I ran an UF8-2 on a 30 amp breaker and a UF10-2 on a 20 amp breaker, through an 2 1/2" conduit the 8-2 handles my outlets, and the 10-2 handles my lighting. The only downside no 220. But if your wanting a easy way to wire your shop that would be it. No sub-panels and fancy wiring and you can always upgrade later. Oh and sence my Bld isn't on a perm foundation, I didn't have to have an inspection but you need to check with your local building inspector just to be shure.
  21. I'm north of you on 75, I live in Dalton, GA.
