  1. If the price is right (for me it would be 25% off or more from msrp) I would definitely get the nordfab ducting as well. That has been on my alerts for craigslist for years and except for 1 listing which only had a handful of items, I've never seen one on craigslist. As for the dc, it should be fine. As mentioned the dust / debris is not supposed to pass through the impeller itself. Personally I would want a decent discount from the msrp for this one however. Good luck

    Covid-19 Vaccine

    My first shot I had a sore arm for a few days. 2nd shot I had chills and body aches for 1 day. Most of the people I k one who got it had similar reactions. Only one of my cousins had a pretty bad reaction to the 2nd shot. All moderna or Pfizer. No one I know got the JJ

    Covid-19 Vaccine

    This will be hard to answer without making it political but I’ll try. I read a poll on this and while the answer sounds silly it’s because the (to avoid being too political let’s just say other side) wants them to. Their hatred for that political party blinds them to making (at least to me) right decision. Also certain minority groups have had a history of this government not treating them so nicely with regards to vaccines and that has bread skepticism throughout the years. even now. Finally I think many in the government are foolishly refusing to lislft any restrictions even after you get
  4. If anyone is looking for a cordless blower and/or chainsaw HD has a pretty good deal rn. The blower comes with 8ah batt and fast charger. Chainsaw is bare tool
  5. A few accessories from micro fence. Including a couple of mounting bars so I can use the guide on additional routers and a piece to allow the circle jig to ride on a festool rail. In the future I’m going to try and make a few more mounting bars for other routers.
  6. Made a couple of brackets to house the vac sys. Based it mostly on the festool plans but just winged the measurements. The vac clamps just drop in and can be taken out without any tools. That way I can them on a horizontal surface if needed. There is a small gap so fit is loose to make action easy. When turned on the clamps suction themselves to the brackets. The brackets can also be raised or lowered about a foot. It can also be attached in a similar manner to my mft. The cord management still needs work
  7. You may want to consider a separator as well. Makes emptying the dust so much easier. Downside is you lose a little cfm. For me it was worth it. I have a similar dc (delta 50-760) and I made a one using a garbage can with a thien baffle. Also I would still wear a respirator. You won’t capture 100% of the dust and depending on the tool and how well the DC was designed it could be quite significant.
  8. Check out the packing job amazon did for a box of protein bars. Foam lined box with an ice bag inside. I dare say they went a bit overboard.
  9. I got this jointer at a estate sale years ago super cheap. Being the procrastinator that I am it sat in storage till I could clean it up and replace the knives. After finally getting fed up with the lack of depth in my 6” jointer I finally set my mind to switch over to the 8”. Instead of just replacing the knives however I decided to switch over to a Byrd head since I liked them so much on my previous jointer. The head ended bring 3x more than what I paid for the jointer but I figure it was worth the investment. And while I was at it I decided to get a Byrd head for my planer as well. I s
  10. It’s my last recon purchase a festool etsc 125. will report when I put it to some extended use. The little I’ve used it so far however seems to yield good results.
  11. Just trying out some new sand paper
  12. Thanks based on the reviews on LJ and fog I'll give it try.
  13. Anyone try it? How does it compare to other brands you've used and specifically does it last significantly longer? Currently use a mix of Festool and Abranet. I need to restock on certain grits and was thinking of giving the cubitron a try.
  14. You may also check out the used market. With the savings you could add a helical head and pay less than a new straight knife. I just finished putting on a Byrd head to a used Delta DJ-20 8" jointer I got a while back. The head cost 3x as much as what I paid for the Jointer itself. And this jointer is replacing a 6" PM jointer I also got used and had put in a byrd head. If you have your mind set on getting new I would give Grizzly a consideration. Cremona has a 12(?) inch Grizzly and I believe he has commented on woodtalk about how much he likes it.
  15. One advantage I’ve found with all my stationary tools when going 220 is the amperage draw. When I had my dewalt “lunchbox” (it was one heavy lunchbox) planer it would frequently trip my breaker especially if I took off too much. Went away completely when I got my 220v floor model shopfox. One side note about DCs (which you may already know) is to be careful how often you start and stop it. The start up requires a much higher current draw and puts more strain on the motor. I don’t think this as big an issue on the smaller 1.5 hp DCs because the impeller is relatively small but the
  16. For nicer projects I agree. But a majority of times for me edge banding comes In the form of shelving, shop cabinets, etc. For those times I would be great to have a conturo. But the entry price is ridiculous for someone in my situation. I have been eyeing those edge banding machines with table and built in heat gun. Freud makes one. Reviews seem to be mixed however so I’m hesitant.
  17. For me it would be the jointer for sure. Being able to mill my own lumber profoundly changed my woodworking. Ymmv obviously. Being able to use rough lumber and milling it down to my desired thickness was a game changer for me. Not to mention a big savings for and often times the stock was better quality. If you’re using a lot of hand tools I would go with a bench next. If not then a bs would be 2nd for me. Initially I used only power tools and was more than satisfied with my wood whisperer inspired assembly / extension table / workbench.
  18. I would say yes but I think I've gotten every tool that I need. Well there's the Conturo but even at recon price it's still waaaay out of my price range.
  19. Latest festool recon tool. First time using a cordless ros. Hopefully it’s not lacking in power. They make a pretty cool right angle attachment I may get in the future.
  20. Well done! Any plans on putting dc at the fence?
  21. I've bought some these before. Use them for cleaning up glue squeeze out, rough carpentry (especially when there's a decent chance I could hit a nail or screw), etc https://www.acehardware.com/departments/tools/hand-tools/chisels/2107738?irclickid=07lRUqRQxxyLUcf0RHQK3XRkUkEXKazF0R1QWI0&irgwc=1&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_source=Impact&utm_campaign=10451&utm_keyword=664353
  22. No expert here but I would think a blade with more teeth will result in a better (but slower) cut. With thin stock I find having a zctp (zero clearance throat plate) important If you don’t have one you can run a piece of scrap half way through and then clamp it down.
  23. Really love my local Woodcraft. As noted they are independently owned. The owner of the one near me is super helpful.
