    Why doesnt Lowes carry the Bosch GCM12SD?

    It's only $50 more. I've been stuck with tools that are too small in the past, and would like to buy once and forget it. I already regret my Festool TS55 and wish I had gotten the TS75.
  2. So I scored a $250 Gift card to Lowes at work. I was really wanting to pick up this miter saw, but it shows unavailable on their website. They do have the 10 inch, but I don't want that!. I know Lowes can sometimes custom order stuff. Does anyone know if this is something I can order from them through customer service?

    Sketchup vs. ??

    As a heavy CAD user, I despise Sketchup. if you are good with CAD you are better off using Fusion 360, Solidworks, Inventor, or something similar.

    Domino DF 500 Connectors

    Cool system, but footstool is smoking crack these days. 400$ for essentially a box of fasteners.. ( I know there was probably lot of engineering involved)
  5. I agree with everyone here that this is not what “We” do and it is an ugly looking table...but, I feel we should help anyone that has a question or needs help with a project no matter how bad it is I know you are getting a lot of non serious responses, but if it were me, I would probably buy the wood, let it sit in the shop a couple of weeks, the match pieces that warped opposing directions. I would glue the thickness of the table together first (not the width). So you would have a 3 stack of 2x4s. Once those are set and dry, joint them so you can glue each stack together to make the table width. Id use mortises, dowels, dominoes, etc.. you keep things in line or you are going to have a bad time. Expect further warping after delivery, but i think this method should help stabilize it somewhat.

    Felder / SCM Dust Collection

    So I've been digging into dust collectors more and have really started liking what I see with the Felder and SCM dust collection systems. I guess these would be "Euro" style (or maybe industrial) rather than the cyclones we often see in the states. Felder lists Max and Nominal air flows, along with a static pressure. Does anyone know what these actually mean ? They dont provide fan curves.

    Drawer Slide Misalignment Help

    Update: I shimmed the front of the right slide, and the back of the left slide. Now it works as it should I guess a slight misalignment ads over 60 inches (these are BIG drawers).
  8. I need help with my drawer slide installation. I keep having this same problem on almost all drawers I build. This one is very square, yet here there is still 1/8 inch play on the left slide. How can I fix this? Can I shim one of the slides? If so, which side ? Link To Video

    Rip-it automated tablesaw fence

    SCM / Minimax has this on their high end saws. They are simply amazing. They have digital flip stops too.

    Dimensions of Supermax 19-38 without base?

    Definitely. Thanks!
  11. Can someone take measurements for me? I want to try building a slide out table for this sander order my outfeed tabke but I can't find the overall dimensions without the stand. I would need the overall height/width/depth including the handle. Any help would be appreciated.
  12. I was almost read to put a finish on this dresser cabinet but then I chipped the back edge of the plywood veneer. What can I do to fix this?

    Table/Pergola wood selection

    Interesting topic. i am looking at building one, but I want my roof covered (for rainy days). At what point do you need a city permit do build one of these?

    How would you get this finish?

    How would I achieve this dark grey finish, preferrably on pine or fir without the tiger striping?
