  1. You need a shoulder plane or a rabbeting plane. The regular end grain block plane does not make a good job inside rabbets because the blade does not extend to the full width of the plane.
  2. That depends on your line of work. One item to consider is the resolution you need to repeat a cut after you changed your setup. If you need exact repeatabiliy with a resolution of 1 degree or even less, then you should go for the 1000HD or even the 3000SE. If 5 degrees of resolution is enough for your repeated cuts, because your angles are always multiples of 5, then the 1000SE should satisfy your needs. I know nothing about the sled, never seen it face to face, save for the pics at Amazon.
  3. Nice job! Also love the Sennheiser's. I have a similar model and been using them every single day for years without issues. The original AAA rechargeable batteries lasted for two years.
  4. That's one nice looking piece of furniture!
  5. You're not alone. Same thing happening here. Page reloads but always at the beginning of the list. (Mac OSX Yosemite 10.10.2 / Safari 8.0.3)
  6. B. But mostly I use my bandsaw, although not recommended, just because it's my one and only power saw.
  7. If pine is good enough for building homes and Christmas trees, then it must be good enough for everything else. When I started this woodworking hobby, all my projects were pine. Since I didn't have table saws, jointers and/or planers, all my "raw" material came from the homecenter in the form of shelves or steps made of pine. But that was a week ago. Now I'm fully established and working with hard woods (but still don't own any table saws, jointers and/or planer machines).
  8. I have 4 DMT Dia-Sharp continuous diamond stones and I've been thinking about embedding them in a single, long enough piece of wood. But I'm afraid rust will build under the stones as water slips through the joints. Any recommendation?
  9. What I meant with table display is sort of something like this: An inlaid glass and some stuff under it.
  10. What about a display at the center of the table? Your wife can then fill it with dried flowers or grains.
  11. Is weight affected by UD too? Because a 7 year old will have a hard time trying to lift a Bessey K Body Revo and put it in place. Maybe those new UD clamps are made of lighter materials.
  12. Shellac makes an excellent sealer, not just for pine. Even when you're planning to apply only a basic finish, like linseed oil, sealing with shellac as a first step reduces the ugly lumps.
  13. Honestly, I don't think the swiveling handle is really necessary. From my experience with my Bessey's, just turning the handle applies more than enough pressure for the glue to come out from the wood joints like crazy. That swiveling joint is likely to come apart in the short term.
  14. A bit pricey for tools that are made in Taiwan.
  15. I built my router table using the stand of one of those cheap foldable work benches from the homecenter. To store it I have to fold it. I tried to do that with the fence attached, but I just couldn't move it to its storage location due to instability and weight. Video of my router table;
  16. Thank you! The cart is not rolling on the casters though. It's just a trick for the video. The whole thing is rotating on a bearing attached to a piece of MDF under the cart.
  17. Hello, I'm Daniel and I'm new to this forums. I live in an apartment and don't have a workshop, so I'm basically moving my woodworking stuff from one place to the next each time I want to work on my projects (small projects all of them). In addition I have to keep my tools well organized, which is becoming an increasingly complex problem as my tools grow in quantity and size overtime... and the wife... well, you know! So here it is, my latest pathetic solution to my storage problem!
