  1. I would reinforce the torsion box top so that the corner you are going to mount the vise on is solid - and I would get bolts for fastening the vise that are long enough to go all the way through the top with nuts and washers.
  2. My loudest tool is my DC which is on with every tool so ear muffs are always on in my shop.
  3. I also have this sander and back up everything Drew mentioned above. The other thing that is a real plus with the Festool sanders is they are easy on the hand during long sanding sessions. I ran mine almost constantly for 4 hours today and could have gone longer if needed. I couldn't have done that with my old Dewalts I had in the past.
  4. If I was feeling the OCD I would paint it white like the walls around it. But in reality I would probably spray a quick coat from a can of something in the shop that was almost empty anyway.
  5. Derek, I am just now looking through this project and as mentioned above by Frank, I really like the different heights of the stretchers and what it does visually to the whole stool design. Well done once again.
  6. Welcome to the forums George. Glad to have you join our group and looking forward to your contributions.
  7. Might have been something that was repaired. Comes of the line and there is something wrong, they fix it but it can no longer be sold as new. I have the same model and really like it. I probably use it as much as my block plane.
  8. Well this has been a heck of a journey to follow. I hope you get years of enjoyment out of your labors. I have a new appreciation of the term "Home Theater". I bet you are looking forward to some woodworking projects that aren't connected to the basement though.
  9. The above jigsaw would probably do it Coop.
  10. I was using it to vacuum up under the kitchen sink during this renovation and I could tell that it tasing filtering the air real well so looked at it and it was pretty dirty.
  11. You will be real happy with that jigsaw. Its a beast, goes through 8/4 stock like most jigsaws go through 4/4.
  12. I was going to say the same thing, I think it looks pretty good for pine and I bet when you get you top coat on you will be happy.
  13. That's some real top notch work, lots of well done detail.
  14. I just had to replace my Hepa filter on the CT, $75.00 for paper mounted in a flexible plastic frame.
  15. I had one of the very first additions of the wobble dado and the registration marks for setting it were probably 1/8 inch off, no help at all.
  16. Yes it does. Thats the same hood Got with my 1400 and my CT has the original hose. The hose goes into the hood connector.
  17. This is the way I would do it.
  18. I think CSH is a better quality too. I by all mine from there.
  19. I have that knob resting between the base of my thumb and index finger when I am using mine.
  20. You're going to like it I have their large.
  21. Is that one of the Veritas models Coop?
  22. I wouldn't know how to drink my morning coffee if I didn't have a paper, news paper. I need a page to turn to trigger my next sip.
  23. I am working on a kitchen renovation right know and everyday has been like that.
