  1. I vote roubo workbench beautiful pieces. Curious to see what they eventually turn into. Are they completely dry already?
  2. You could buy just the fitting. It threads on similar sized hoses. 27mm. I have may kapex connected to a fein Vac using a Bosch hose that connects to the fitting https://www.festoolproducts.com/Festool-487071-Replacement-Antistatic-Reducing-Sle-p/487071.htm?gclid=CKfUtpS52MsCFVGAaQodn-INQA Rockler also sells this hose kit http://www.rockler.com/dust-right-universal-small-port-hose-kit
  3. You could make a european style jointer guard and clamp it on the fence.
  4. Congrats!!! I saw the same deal. If didn't already have one I would have jumped. Glad someone here got it. I got mine on CL 3-4 years ago as well. The good old days when hardly anyone knew about them and you have more tan 4 minutes to reply I notice alot of green tools popping up on cl in last month or so. Crossing my fingers for a good deal on RAS 115 to show up.
  5. The extension tables help alot. Either buy Dewalts (which is probably the easier option) or make supports. Make sure you have good dust collection. If you don't, the chute could get clogged and if your not evacuating the chips fast enough they fall back on to the stock and (especially in soft species) leaves indentations as the feed rollers go over them. Buy good hearing protection.
  6. I bought one of those last year but totally forgot about it. It's now sitting on a shelf covered with dust After i get my shop more organized and my cyclone installed and piped in I hope to use it a bit more frequently
  7. I'm was in a similar position when I was looking for a segmented cutterhead for my jointer. I didn't find any alternatives that were significantly cheaper. I eventually ordered my byrd head from Brian at Holbren. He offers a discount to woodnet members.
  8. I'm hoping they get Lie Nielsen or Lee Valley to attend. I want to check out a few of their tools
  9. Hopefully they have some good vendors http://www.rockler.com/retail/stores/ca/pasadena-store Rockler Woodworking and Hardware in Pasadena will be hosting a one-day woodworking show on Sunday, March 20, 2016 from 9:00AM to 6:00PM and all are invited to attend. The event will include woodworking seminars and product demonstrations with representatives from major tool companies and local woodworking guilds. The store will also be offering special deals on wood and tools, free refreshments, and more. Though there will be some low-cost “make and take” hands-on projects offered, there is no
  10. Thanks. Only suggestion would be to use a craigslist app. There are quite a few out there. And respond ASAP whe you find a deal.
  11. I had a craftsman 22124 before I got my current saw and I was very happy with it. It's been discontinued I believe but there is a replacement model. I would go to Sears and check it out for yourself.
  12. My cl alert on my Ipad goes off for JDS multirouter that was just listed. Like many I first saw it on David Marks show and was intrigued by it but just couldn't justify the cost. I got reminded about it again when Marc bought his and posted some videos of it. So when the alert popped up I was definitely excited. But I already have both dominos so I really didn't need it. But Marc made it look so cool in his videos and Marc said there were occasions when the multirouter would be the better tool. Even though I don't think he ever gave me as clear of example of such a case . So that batt
  13. Thanks for all the tips. Will put them to use on future doors. I actually had planned on putting some weight on them till I could get back to work but I totally forgot. I'll try garbage back trick. Even if doesn't straighten them out I'll do as suggested and see what the dry assembled doors look like. Tom, flat panel doors but the back is raised so it's flush with the frame.
  14. So I'm milling up some rails and stiles for a set of kitchen cabinet doors. I did it in 2 stages. Initially I milled everything up so it was a little over 1/16 final dimension. Let it rest over night and then milled it again to final dimension, including running them through a drum sander. I didn't have time route the profiles the same day so I had to wait until the next weekend when I had time. Unfortunately when I went to check them some of the stiles (mostly on the upper cabinets) have a very slight bow. I seem to have lost my feeler gauges so I don't know the exact number but I'd say
  15. If I could only get one I would definitely go planer first. You can joint the edge or face using other machines, granted it won't be as fast or easy.
  16. I got lucky and started using craigslist when hardly anyone knew of these strange green tools and paying their prices was unthinkable to most. Took a few years but I managed to get most of the tools they carry in the US for no more than half retail. Much rarer now and the competition has vastly increase but I still see the occasional tool.
  17. Buy it, call it art, place in an auction, sell it for $1000
  18. I'm planning on using it on my assembly table. I built the ubiquitous torsion box assembly table a while back and it doubles as an out feed table. I have an mft but really like the added space of the assembly table especially for connecting large face frames via pocket screws. I actually bought the kreg clamping table on craigslist a while back. It worked well but had to sell it because I didn't have enough room after getting more stationary tools. Hopefully this setup will be just as good.
  19. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016S81G5A?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 It's oos but it looks like you can still order it and will ship when available. Retail is $140 I believe. At least that's what woodcraft sells it for http://www.woodcraft.com/product/161430/kreg-27-x-69-universal-clamp-trak-kit-kreg-kks2769.aspx
  20. I thought Sef should have gone home. Poor craftsmanship, bad time management, and taking unfair shorcuts by stealing the drawers. Plus the "soundwaves" were unrecognizable. Even when he told you what they were supposed to represent it still-looked like a beat up corrugated roof that he painted teal. Probably biased because it was made of wood but the chair was my favorite piece of the whole season. I thought it should have won.
  21. Looks like Aptril 3 at Rockler parking lot. http://www.sdfwa.org/old-tool-swap-meet/ Here's a link to all the shows this year. They had one in OC (specificaly Irvine) but I guess they cancelled that one. http://www.socaltoolswap.com/

  23. Just like any Swapmeet the best answer is, it depends. On who shows up, what they bring, and what they're asking. It's only 20 mins from me so I've gone to all the ones they've held for the last 3 years. Some days I go home empty some days I get some amazing deals. Even bought a couple of the green tools. But you have to get there early for the gloat worthy deals. It's around 75% hand tools. Mostly antiques/older type. But there are some bctw, veritas, LN as well. Even if you don't buy anything it's fun to just check out tools 1. You didn't had never heard of or 2. Only seen pics of
  24. This could just be marketing hype but according to Festool Rubin is designated for bare stock. http://www.festoolusa.com/Web_files/Abrasives_brochure.pdf I switched to alot of my sandpaper to Abranet last year and really like it. Well actually I use Autonet because it's cheaper and the same product (just marketed towards auto industry). I could use it for a really long time and it never clogged. The only down side is it will wear much faster when working on edges and doesn't work great on curves. Which is why I still have 25% of granat paper. If you use it on your Festool sande
