    Just made my first cut with an actual rip blade on the table saw using a cheap blade and the cut quality and ease of cut was remarkable. Why did I wait so long to buy a dedicated rip and crosscut blade? I don't think I will ever go back to a combo blade again. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    @K Cooper you get the one that does full auto? Or single shot? Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  3. They definitely changed how to get to the news feed but if you look at the top portion where the different tabs are that is how I found it after the update Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  4. I work for a general contractor in Texas on the project management side of things. And I can tell you for a fact, general contractors need more people that can drive a nail, set a form, hang a door, etc. At this point we would even love to have someone that is just willing to show up and work with out complaining.

  5. Thanks y'all. I don't think I'm gonna go with this design but always glad to read y'all's thoughts. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  6. While I don't think it would. I would like to pose this question to those of you that know a lot more about wood movement than I. The arrows indicate grain and you can assume each strip is 2" or 3" wide. The more I look at it the more it kinda rubs me the wrong way but it was fun figure out how to get a harringbone to go 4 directions. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    I do not understand the science but I know it makes icecream, chills and brines hog, and makes the beer nice and frosty Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    Thorough testing of your frosty beer may help get to the bottom of this. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    Proof (for me) that the journey is just as beautiful as the destination when woodworking. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    First time hanging out in the shop. We both discovered that all of my flat surfaces are about hairline high. Lol no damage, just a surprised look every now and then. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  11. I watched Marc's videos on the steamer trunk for the first time this past weekend. I somehow missed them but I'm glad I watched them. What do you think was the hardest/trickiest part aside from forcing the mdf to bend to your will? Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  12. @knotscott I didn't pick up the saw because the saw did t have a riving knife and because I dont have the money or time right now to run the required 220. And I'm still trying to get rid of my radial arm saw and other tools that didnt make the cut when I did my last purge. Anyone wanna buy a radial arm saw? Lol. Or does anyone know of a good cause/charity that takes used tools that still work? Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  13. @knotscott I really like your setup. Would you mind telling me what you like and what you would do differently if you could? I've been mulling over putting a cabinet saw on wheels and marrying and router table to the end similar to what you did. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  14. Decided against picking up the saw. Thank y'all for your responses. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  15. Found this saw on Craigslist. Cabinet saws usually don't pop up often around me. Seller also sent me this picture of the label I would need to run 220 but that can be done. What are y'all's thoughts? Save up for a new one with a router table at the end (prolly one of the Jets) or jump on this grenade? From the pictures on cl it looks like it was used in a cabinet shop of sorts. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
