  1. No, very little dust is exhausted and nearest neighbor is over 1/4 mile away.
  2. Grizzly has a good selection of butcher block. I don't know how the price compares to Ikea.
  3. This is my bucket list project. It is a French day bed from around 1860, we bought it while I was stationed in Germany in 1979. Solid walnut no veneers. I doubt I could afford the walnut now. My wife's grandmother did the upholstery.
  4. I have had the shelix head for 9yrs. Have not rotated the cutters yet. Replaced the belt twice.
  5. A decent USA made anvil is very hard to find and expensive when you do. There are alternatives like a chunk of railroad track fastened to a large chunk of wood. Check out knife making forums they are usually friendly, The Knife Network Forums : Knife Making Discussions - Powered by vBulletin is one that I used to belong to.
  6. Old hard drives are another great source. Those magnets are kidney shaped, which may limit their use, but they are great for hanging tools in the shop.
  7. Everything you wanted to know about magnets. K&J Magnetics - Strong Neodymium Magnets, Rare Earth Magnets (kjmagnetics.com)

    Actually that's 197, we hit 48 on the 22nd.
  9. You do realize that this was 6yrs ago? I have trouble remembering yesterday! That said I am 95% sure that after the first coat I went to full strength. One caveat, I installed and finished the original counter top so I was able to use the exact same brand name and type of poly. Hopefully you will be able to do the same. If it matters I still can't find the transition line and the counter looks pretty darn good today.
  10. While I was working in my shop I have a 3M respirator that I wear. But we had a couple of nice days in late Oct and I took the chair outside to shape. I was stupid and did not wear any protection while working outside, thinking the breeze would be enough. I am recovering but it has been a long haul. Apparently at 70 it aint as easy 20 was. I need a full face respirator because I now wear glasses and I need eye protection too.
  11. Thanks I will check it out. I know they are expensive. Last October I made a sculpted chair that required a lot of grinding/sanding etc.... I thought I was being careful with the dust, and my face mask was adequate. I spent November in the hospital with aspiration pneumonia, and December getting daily antibiotic infusions. I will spend the money on a respirator.....
  12. Which one? I am very interested, and need to buy one.
  13. I make my own. Got the idea from @derekcohen web site. Easy to make with used jig saw blades.

    The one I have been using has lasted about 2yrs. Just sprayed the other day, worked great.
