  1. Thank gawd my Woodcraft catalog showed up, I almost cleaned my shop.
  2. Yes, true that, but I don't expect much movement due to the condition of the wood, and climate control of the shop. Split top.
  3. I've never built a sculpted rocker, so excuse my intrusion, but these seem like a perfect tool for the job. Beautiful build by the way. Thanks for sharing your process.
  4. I'm building a new work bench to go with my new Twin Turbo vises. It's gonna be a split top Roubo style. I picked up two 10" x 4" slabs of reclaimed old growth SYP. The mill planed them flat for me, so nice. I'm wondering about grain orientation. They are tight grained, old and dry, so I'm not expecting them to move. Would you put the center down or up? Aesthetically I like the frown, though I won't see the ends much, because the grain looks best.
  5. are you suggesting that I call them and ask if they one on the shelf I could buy? hmmm... might be worth the effort.
  6. Nice. Looking forward to getting mine and building a new, long over due, bench to go with these beasts. BTW, I ordered a small one also, and the drawings say 14" screw to screw center, and the housing plates at 17" wide. Are you sure the screws are 16" apart?
  7. If you have one sitting around gathering dust, I'm interested in purchasing the PM-TJ.
  8. Has anyone worked with Dinizia for furniture making? Care to share your experience? I'm particularly interested in any knowledge on residual odor and gluing problems. I know it's mostly used in exterior applications, but...the wood looks beautiful and I just got my hands on 200bf of it for $1/bf. 80 pieces of s4s at 4x91x1 actual dims, clear grain.
  9. many hundreds of square feet and have not rotated them yet. perhaps thousands. some very hard wood at times too. the Shelix is such a sweet deal.
  10. This a nice miter station. I've had a few miter stations over the years and I hate to break it to you, but that chip is the least of your worries. You might want to just take a hammer to it now and get past any future emotional anguish caused by dings. LOL.
  11. The SDD is marketed for 1 - 3HP systems. The reason I'd upgrade the suction is to provide better flow (quantity and speed of air) through the SDD to get better removal of fines. I don't want to chase my tail here. Do others think a the 2HP Grizzley dust collector is over sized for the SDD? I'll have just one 8' flex hose coming off it.
  12. I think his point is that a bigger motor alone is not going to help.
  13. I wouldn't do that. When I say "bigger motor," I mean a bigger impeller too. I'm thinking of upgrading from the Rikon 1HP Snail Dust (9" impeller) that sits above my SDD and blows out a duct to the great outdoors (aka suburbia) to a Grizzley 2HP G1029Z2 (12-3/4" impeller). This might provide the velocity and volume needed to better capture fines in the SDD. Like I mentioned I can't really do anything about the flex and Quick Change adapter, so that might be my best option. I may have to add a Y with a gate to let more volume in for certain machines (I've only got four - I'm mostly a hand tool guy). Thanks for all your input folks. Mensch, all-ya-all.
