  1. Looking for a sander

    Mine says 1800 for speed, of course like Ace says push it and expect burning, the outside of the disk spins faster than the center, but I’ve found it to be a good machine
  2. Looking for a sander

    + 1 to Chet and RichardA, i have the 6" belt and 9" disk combination from HF and have been running it for about 4 years with no trouble, the stand that comes with it is too low and is pretty cheap so i made a new stand for it. my thought is that its a sander and if the belt and disk go around and stay on its good enough for me.

  6. Dovetail Gaps Plus Out of Square

    I don’t know of any video. You can glue on some thin strips and sand or chisel to fit or glue them in after it’s together but that’s harder to do. I have the Leigh D4R pro 24” and I really like it. Watch the DVD and practice on scrap. I find they are really easy to use
  7. Dovetail Gaps Plus Out of Square

    What dovetail machine were you using Jordan? You could use some wedges to improve the look and you could also use contrasting 1/4 or 3/8 pins to lock the dovetails together for additional strength

    I would glue the two short sides first then the long sides, I've done it that way before and it seemed to work well. the ratchet strap idea would take a few extra hands and with the glue drying you don't have a lot of time to adjust ratchet straps. connect some pipe clamps together or use this as an excuse to get more clamps. looking great so far.
