  1. Wow! What a pleasure to read through and see!
  2. Not a professional either but I figured what isn't good for me is worse for them. The difference is they love so unconditionally they'll put themselves through it just to be with us.
  3. Thank you very much for all the replies! I got what I asked for which is solid advice. I can honestly say I've taken a little out of every one. The truth is I do have everything I need. My Rockler hang on the wall DC works fine for now. I have a filter system hanging on the wall and a great respirator if things get too heavy.
  4. Are you serious? That's possibly normal? I spent longer than I'll admit tapering the hell out of 2x4 trying different feed methods and a lot of swearing trying to figure out why.
  5. I was/am but that's an expense I voted out because I'm not where I think I need to be to spend that much on a really good dust collection system. I could get the Clear Vue CV1800 but not enough to really do the piping right. That's where I'm leaning Kev. Making good with what I've got and spending the time it takes to make them purr. I've looked through the projects where people on here have made works of art with contractor grade throw away equipment. Its time I stop buying tools better than me and start becoming better than my tools.
  6. Hello everyone, Just got my yearly year end bonus and the bills are paid, cards paid off, and presents bought with cash not credit. There's some left over so here's where the advice comes in. I'm not to the caliber most of you are and not in my shop as much as you are either. I know and sometimes believe buy as much as you can afford but I'm trying to be practical. I could get a nice new jointer but I'm leaning towards keeping my Craigslist special Jet 6" and buying Shelix heads for my jointer and planer. I could easily see buying a great new tool but I'm just not there yet to justify the cost. At my pace it's going to be a while. It's therapy for me and is it wrong to improve what I have and buy lumber to actually make something I'd want to show all of you?
  7. I've truly never checked it. No matter how I feed a board through it (6") I end up with a taper. I needed to know what to do before I get started testing and checking tolerances.
  8. Thank You very much!!!
  9. I believe it's been discussed here before but I can't find it. My Jet jointer has the dovetail sliding area for the tables and there's a way to adjust these so they are I think "coplanar". I've been avoiding it because I don't know what to do so any link or advise would be great. Thanks
  10. Hatred sorry just feeling hatred.... My wife just commented on "Why so much sawdust in the garage?" Sadly I didn't respond with "Well Honey! Why so much car/kid crap in my shop?"
  11. I seriously thought I was the only one. It's so bad my wife even offered to go out and help. I have projects I want to do and gifts I want to make but lately the couch has been a stronger force and I'm not proud of it!
  12. I made candle center pieces last year for Christmas for loved ones. I asked my wife if I should start making more for our schools art fair. She asked how much I'd sell them for. I told her I had about $100 into them because of the figured exotic wood. Even though my family loves them her response was "Don't bother nobody would pay even what you have in it." Uh thanks honey!
  13. Are you in a hurry to sell the table?
  14. If no one scoops it up I'll take it but can't for a couple weeks
