  1. Tina, this is a topic that can get you answers that are all over the place, depending on you location, how you plan to sell, whether you are willing to ship and other variables. But to start you need to figure the cost of all your materials and consumables and then you need to put a value on your time. After that you need to figure a profit margin.
  2. Chris, your responses here on the Forum this past week or so leave a lot to be desired. They really offer nothing to the conversation and are pretty rude to the person that started the thead. I had sent you a PM when I deleted you post in the CNC section but you never read it. So this time I am going to be more public and tell you that this forum has a no jerk policy and if you can follow that you time here will probably be short lived. You comment above does not help her at all so you do you say something like this? Especially to a new member, you don't make her feel welcome with a comment like this one.
  3. I really like that saw till design Brian. If your thinking about new stuff, you might be able to find a little space for keys to a new vehicle, they shouldn't take up that much space.
  4. I have had the saw for about 7 years now with no regrets.
  5. I'll just add this, I have the PCS SawStop with the 1 3/4 HP motor that runs on 110 and it has served me well the only time it struggles is with 8/4 stock of some of the harder woods like maple, wedge or sapele. But by simply slowing down my feed rate it does fine with the cut and no burning. A good blade helps this too.
  6. I use this stuff from Epoch Wood. Two Sided Sandpaper It works out to about .40 a sheet for a 4.5 X 2.75 inch piece. But it's pretty durable and works well for getting in to tight spots and corners. I use the 400 for all my between coat sanding.
  7. Yea Ronn, if you aren't doing large veneers or lamination glue ups it might not be that big of a deal but for what I have used it for so far it really speeds things up even when you add in the few minutes it takes to clean afterwards.
  8. It served you well Robert, now may it rest in piece.
  9. I could see owning a small CNC if I was really into building styles like Queen Anne furniture. I like building furniture but don't really like carving so having a CNC do do things like the shells and other appointments on those designs.
  10. John, just out of curiosity, have you checked any neighboring counties?
  11. That's the thing, the VOC's
  12. Out door fires yes, I wouldn't suggest using pallet wood indoor fires. Pallets, especially ones the come from the food industry warehouses are frequently treated with pesticides and fungicides.
  13. People keep saying that California has banned items but in reality it is usually a county thing. Everything that I hear mentioned by Southern California woodworkers that are banned, I can still by locally were I leave. I think some of it comes from the fact that Southern California had a bigger problem with clean air situations so they are taking big steps now. Come on up for a visit John and we'll go shopping.
  14. The Moderators have moved this thread for those that want to continue the discussion. In the process we have edited the thread to include just the posts that are on topic. We understand that there were differences of opinions but hopefully from this point on it will get back to discussing the pros and cons of CNC in the woodworking world.
  15. There are some out there that you can spend a lot more money on but Morley spoke highly of this one so I thought that I would try it. I am assuming it holds up well because he uses his a lot more then I will be.
  16. No, legs to a Morris chair. I just ganged them all together in the clamps.
  17. I heard Phillip Morley talking about this glue roller on one of his podcasts. It sells on Amazon for $19.00. My present project has some bent lamination to do and I thought this would be a fast more efficient way of gluing everything up. I have already used it on a couple of applications on the project and this thing is worth all nineteen dollars and then some. It has a hard sponge roller that rolls on the work and a metal roll in the reservoir. When you put pressure on the sponge roller and roll it, it presses agains the metal roller which allows the glue to flow and evenly distribute it on your work piece. There is also a trigger that you can pull up that stops the flow but allows you to continue the use the roller to spread the glue. There are two sizes 3 inch and 6 inch, I bought the 3 inch which I think would be adequate for most everything unless you are gluing up large sheets of veneer. On the occasions that I have used it, it has proven to be way faster then squeezing glue from the bottle and rolling it with a brayer. Cleaning it takes a few minutes with water but not much longer than cleaning the brayer. I would guess that it holds a pint or more of glue. It comes with an extra sponge roller.
  18. Even going to 1/2 inch could make a difference. Really looking nice though.
  19. The Sharpie is such a capable tool I am amazed that in using it you didn't produce a fancier looking joint.
  20. I saw the same video... I think it was his most recent shop tour video and if I was in Reffi's situation I would take a serious look at these.

    And the pants you are wearing at the time.
  22. What is mentioned above is a good way to go. Mentioning the Dremel leads me to believe that you don't have a spindle sander. You used to be able to find in some hardware stores a sanding drum that was made to be chucked up in a drill press or standard drill motor. These were longer then what you would have for your Dremel.
  23. I am sure that other businesses like Klingspor Abrasives will continue carrying stuff for it also.
  24. Thanks. I am going to subscribe also.
  25. Man O' Man Dave those came out absolutely beautiful. That was some top notch work on your part.
