  1. If I did this it would be a sure way to guarantee that I would end up dropping a chisel or other sharp, pointed object.
  2. Possibly, but that would most likely take longer than a quick sanding operation. This is a good point and I don't know where the OP is located, but in my city they are pretty specific when issuing business licenses on whether your business will produce any dust or fumes in the process.
  3. Something like a small disc sander should do the job like the one below. This one is a combination belt and disc but not a bad price for what you need. Disc and Belt Sander But you might want to ask your supplier how much it would cost because either way you are going to pay for it, it will be his labor and he probably already has the machine and technique or it will be your time and energy which takes you away from your real work.
  4. This is one of the best things I have added to my shop and it provides great support to the body even with long days in the shop. I live close to you in San Jose and I have walked out onto this with just my socks when the shop is a little cold and you don't feel the cold in the bottom of your feet. It sweeps up pretty well especially after you have had it down for a while and it vacuums real well. I think carpet would be a head ache and it certainly would be a chore to keep clean. I don't think it would provide support under your feet during long sessions in the shop. If you want to stop by and see it sometime just drop me a PM.
  5. I think you should have done a "real time" video of all of this so we could have enjoyed the joyless task with you. Normally a persons most recent project is there favorite but of the three rockers do you gravitate towards one? You most certainly did a great job on this one.
  6. Probably not Jet or Grizzly. Seems that everyone around here that has the combo is in the Hammer corner.
  7. Here is a video of one a member here did.
  8. I actually like the drawer runners exposed. I think it could look real nice sanded the way Darrell Peart rounds some of his parts. This I agree with, even though drafting stools are narrower then a desk chair the thing that has me thinking it needs to be a little wider is that you have a design element to your drawer runners that look like the bow in, which I like but this could end end up being an ankle biter.
  9. These are a really nice bit, a little more money but they have a top and bottom bearing so they have more flexibility in how they can be used. They are worth the money. I purchased the 3/4 diameter with the 2 inch cutting length and just used it a lot in a recent project super clean cut. I used it on both hardwood and ply.
  10. might have your parts and vintage might have the manuals.
  11. Been there, Done that, Got the Tee Shirt.
  12. Did you give any thought to doing some of the shaping on things like the rockers using a spoke shave?
  13. I am running out of things to say to describe the great work you do.
  14. If you can't find them you might think about attaching some leather with contact cement in place of the pad.
