  1. Does anyone own or have experience with the Driftmaster fence.

    Hi from KC

    Welcome to the Forums, Lee.
  4. wasn't the a movie about behinds and green doors. I didn't see it but I think it was a knotty movie
  5. Congratulations Shannon. We have one of those real estate agents you wish you had. We purchased three home with the same gentleman, couldn't imagine having done it with out him. Have fun setting up the new shop space.
  6. Raefco, when you get to looking at vintage radial arm saws you might want to look at this Sears model too. I have had mine since the late 80's and the thing has no quit in it. I have been extremely happy with everything it has done. Is it super accurate? No, but if you keep it tuned it has been worth owning. Even with the tool setup I have now I still use it for some things. I wouldn't get rid of it anyway because it was my first power tool.
  7. TIODS that came out nice. Projects like that really do supply needed therapy, I have been down that road. My condolences.
  8. glad to see there is someone sappy like me... I pondered a long time about selling my lathe because a I just wasn't using it and I could use the floor space, but my wife had given it to me as a Christmas gift, hence the long ponder. When I finally asked her about it, she said "what do I care if you sell it, if your not using it.
  9. I have always like the way your finishes look. I need to get some lessons from you. My finish work is my down fall.

    Did it rattle your house pretty good? 4.0 here in California hardly makes the news
  12. I watched a video review a while back on youtube, Matt's basement workshop did a couple of reviews on the SawStop and on there he gave a couple of tips he had learned about in regards to the dust collection. You will enjoy that saw.
  13. I went with the 36 inch fence on my SawStop also. I have had it a year now and haven't had a time when I wish I had the 52, and that includes starting out using the saw to make a number of pieces of shop furniture out of birch ply.
  14. Days of old. I am like Steve. Back in 1967 in the ninth grade I got punched in the gut by a teacher for some "no good" I was up to. Now a days the kid would run home to their parents. If I had run home to my parents I would have gotten it all over again... I kept my mouth shut when I got home, I was wrong but I wasn't stupid.

    Congrats Eric! That is approximately 3.424657 posts per day since you joined.
  16. I got one too awhile back and watched the whole thing. It was pretty decently informative, especially for a newb to the bandsaw like me. There wasn't a catch or buy in part way through to see the whole thing it was all free. They do have videos that are for a fee though.
  17. Tom, looks nice. There side yard looks like it might be a nice place for some raised vegetable beds. We are re-doing our whole back yard this year. we need to put in all drip irrigation because of the drought, which I was planning on anyway. Thats the only way that we can water anything that we put in moving forward.
  18. Welcome! As you have already found out, there is a wealth of information here.
  19. Teach em' young, it will stay with them their whole life. I have a grandson that I started projects with when he was about you nephew's age. They live right next door and if he hears the tools turned on, he is in my garage quicker then you can turn on a light.
  20. Welcome to the forums, Oscar.
