  1. I use Accuride 7434 when I want a reliable moderate priced slide.
  2. A couple of days ago, my Bosch Contractor Saw took a poop so I went to my buddy's shop and operated his Saw Stop with gloves. glad to see this works. Todd, great video
  3. Of course I'm using what my wife prefers. I just wanted to run a comparison. Now what I love about the under mount slides is the adjustments, so if I would build face frame inset cabinet, you bet slides would be under mount Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. I'm not recommending brands. Some prefer Blum, Grass, Accuride or KV .. this is just a concept issue. My cabinet making buddies agree with my view. I'm about to get an email from a friend in a Hardware company ... we shall see. What is your preference? of course if money is not the issue.
  5. Forget about brands. Under Mounted Drawer Slides 1. Drawer construction requires a 1/2" reveal from the bottom of the drawers 2. Side reveal is about 3/8" per side 3. Reveal between drawers ... at least 1" to have clearance for the drawer hardware which is underneath. 4. Length ... very limited options (unless you use Hettich_] 5. Reliability. Even the better ones have a lot of breakable plastic parts 6. Smoothness ... super smooth and soft close 7. Space management take 2 ... the back of the cabinet requires an extra 5/8 for the hook of the drawer slide to get in the hole of the back of the drawer Side Mounted Drawer Slides 1. Drawer bottom can be flush with the bottom. 2. Side reveal is about 1/2" per side ... more if heavier duty slides 3. Reveal between drawers ... you can put them as tight as you want providing they don't rub 4. All kinds of lengths available with a 2" increment 5. Reliability. They last forever 6. Smoothness ... after a while these slides are very decent. the soft close option comes with the telescopic guides which are too noisy ... I like progressive slides (or is it the other way around) 7. Space management take 2. no need for extra depth of the cabinet (may be 1/8" reveal ) Husband. Side mounted drawer slides last forever, better space, reliable and more economical Wife . love the smooth and soft close experience What am I missing?
  6. My preference is to use Grass under mount slides, they are awesome and have great adjustments. Better adjustments than any other slide out there.
  7. For that style of clamps, I prefer the "I" clamps from Jorgensen and are super heavy duty
  8. Most of my purchases were cash. My latest investment was a Powermatic 20" helical head 5 hp and I financed it ... How? The banks pay very little to depositors so I paid a friend 5% plus some cutting boards and we are happy. You may know somebody who wants to help and has cash laying around and not happy how little the banks are paying. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. I have The OF1400 and the OF2200 ... I love the 2200 great adjustments Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I hook up my router table to two Festool vacuums. One from the bottom of my Freud router and one from the top of the table.
  13. Right back at you Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. The only place that possibly may have something is Intermountain Wood Products I Grand Junction, Colorado. That is the place I usually get timber when I'm in Colorado. What a silly guy I am ... You are next to Salt Lake, forget what I wrote
  15. Consider soft maple and for doors that size I would suggest using thicker material. At least the finish thickness of 1". hinges. Salice have better adjustments and heavier duty than Grass or Blumm
  16. How about getting the 30" Wurth the crosscut sliding attachment? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  17. I'm taking the saw to a repair shop in an hour. This poster dude is not mechanical at all.

  21. The All Blacks just beat Australia (wallabies) in the Rugby World Cup. Argentina (Pumas) los tinto The semifinals against Australia. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. Before you do anything physical, deal with the pain and inflammation. Take anti inflammatories plus I use a gel called Voltaren which in the US you need a prescription. This cream/gel is fantastic. After the pain ... I'm 52 and pretty athletic (I compete in tennis) so I'm taking my time to reply ... Yoga is great for balance, core and some stretches. Foam rolling is like giving yourself a deep body massage. Weights are also great in moderation. My favorite routine is P90X2 ... But like I said, I'm a tennis player and an avid hiker and backpacker. You need to stick to a routine you love, otherwise it will be punishment Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
