  1. The leading contender for my garage DC setup is PVC pipe ... However, I am not 100% on what blast gates I should be looking into? I heat the metal ones could have leaking issues possibly. I dont really want to build them if I can avoid it. What is everyone else using and happy with?
  2. doubt it, from what I have read .. people have had trouble finding bases outside PM's due to the rounded front on the joiner
  3. why is that? Just because of the possible movement when pushing wood through?
  4. well, maybe it is worth a shot to start with them first and see how it goes ... amazon has a great return policy I found a used - very good condition one on amazon that says it only has cosmetic defects for $85...I snagged it right now to give it a good and if it works I saved ~$130 or so, so cant beat that.
  5. They were saying it was flexing when they had heavy boards on it and that the whole thing was cheaply made and moved as well when jointing and the wheels wouldnt lock solid and keep the thing from moving. Thanks for the ideas guys I will check them out as well ...
  6. Looking to get a mobile base for this, but reviews of the actual PM mobile base dont seem to be all that amazing. Has anyone else had experience with a good base for an 8" jointer?
  7. That’s a great little review there! Thanks for posting. The sizes online don’t seem that much of difference but the 18 makes the 14 look tiny haha
  8. So it sounds like laguna is still leading the category by far. I’m thinking the 18bx is looking really good. I never even knew it was there since I always looked at the 14 series. For only a couple hundred it seems like a great unit.
  9. You feel the BX18 can properly tension the 1” and 1 1/4” blades?
  10. So about to dive into a new bandsaw here around Christmas or so depending on which brand and when their sales are. If you could order any brand bandsaw under $2k with the resaw for 12-14”, what would you get? This is one area I just don’t think PM has much of a noticeable difference in results.
  11. wow... looks like a great little machine there. I wonder if this will replace the supermax love or at least be a strong contender ??
  12. Is this the type of alignment with the drawers that people were wanting ... or align of the inside leg and the drawers would not be aligned but the starting points would be?
  13. See this is why I asked ... some good ideas I had problems thinking about ... Latest Model, I took out the 1 side of cubbies and made the drawers big enough to hold 8.5 wide paper. The red is the width of the monitor, which is about 26" to be safe.monitor is really around 25 1/2" heavy Not really constrained in size per say, but I dont want a 10' wide desk to fit tons of options haha. RIght now I am at 4'8 which is what the design is on the website, I would say 5'6" or so might be the biggest I would want to go, not sure though. The office it is going in is 9' x
  14. I was thinking about a bigger apron but I’m not sure 6” would be easy to pull off without making everything beefier. It looks like dowels yes. I’m thinking adding them in as well. Just not sure where all to go with them. Ya still working on exact height but it will be a computer desk more than a writing desk though. I have a 27” iMac that will be sitting between the 2 organizers. Ok I’ll take a look at alignment of things. Ya I think I will be increasing the organizers size since I was thinking about the paper issue too haha. So for the pull out writing surface
  15. So in the last couple projects I have planned for this year ... I want to make a desk for myself. I found this desk: From: http://www.vermontfurnituremakers.com/vt-custom-furniture/desk-organizers-walnut-curly-maple I dont have $6500 to buy it lol, so I am going to build it. So here are my questions ... 1) Do my dimensions look ok ... nothing off with the size and spacing? 2) How would you go about attaching the organizers to the top of the desk? Screws from under the desk top? 3) On the organizer, the top has an overhang so I would assume
  16. Great stuff Kev!!! So if you were going to store clothes in it would you have finished the insides? It sounded like that is what you said at least ... those pulls look great on there! What are they? Did you cut into the baseboards or just sit it all butted up against it?
  17. Yes it is ... but I’m more curious if there are other options to connect the top that may work
  18. got a screenshot of the underside hardware keeping the 2 top pieces together
  19. The top is 2 pieces connected in the middle with some type of hinge or something he mentions. Correct dominos and no glue then some hinges or something he mentions. Definitely a busy top but his solution for the top seems a little iffy.
  20. HIs new video on this table ... How would you go about connecting the top 2 top pieces ... or building it to where it made it easier to connect them? he talks more about it with his base build ...
  21. LOL!we could be on to something ...
  22. Ya I think I may try that next time ... if there is one haha $225 ... $90 in materials. About maybe 3 hours of total work. 2 hours was probably sanding haha
