  1. Oh i agree that good strait knives give a better surface but the 735 knives lasted about 10 BF before they'd get a ridge and the jointer i had with strait knives was junk. For me the quality on thick cuts is crap if i run a 1/64th cut for a finish pass the quality is far far better than a thick cut. Noise was a HUGE issue with me, strait blade be noisy.
  2. If your furnace has 2 pvc pipes running to it that's a good indicator. For the water heater my burner is literally behind glass, i light the pilot with a built in ignitor. Otherwise google the model and year.
  3. My prayers are with you and your family dave. I hope all turns out well.
  4. Depends on the strait knives and the segmented head. My Byrd heads in my 735 and pj882hh give a way better finish than the strait knives in the 735 ever gave me. Comparing the cut quality of the pj882 to a craftsman 6" with strait knives seems foolish but it's far superior.
  5. Yeah but spags is all crazy with a hand plane and ain't nobody got time for that. Except for me last night bah i be a hypocrite.
  6. Is it jay bates that does the planer sled or nubs or who ever. I just did that flatten leave the edge and then run it through the planer for the other side. Flip back grab the lip and done.
  7. Nic I've done a lot of woodworking in close proximity to my furnace and water warmer. Be diligent at keeping the dust away. Fumes are less of a worry. If your getting concentrations of those enough to be dangerous you'll die from the fumes before the fire probably. Do you appliances have sealed combustion chambers? If so it's even less of a worry. Removing as much dust from the space via dust collector or air filter as possible will always help.
  8. I thought long and hard about that up charge and it came to this. It was aligned from the factory and i Don't have as much free time as i once did. 490X seems like a decent bet. Though he'll find that right after you get a 8" jointer you'll find all those beautiful 9" boards.
  9. I have the 8" PM and love it. I suggest getting Parallelogram beds. Segmented cutter head is really nice as well. In my opinion if your willing to put up with a little bit griz can save you money. If you don't want to worry about it go for the more expensive option. That's not saying that griz will be bad and the other will be good they will both work. Griz just doesn't have the quality control, which is why they cost less.
  10. So would you do the veneer if you were working with a thicker material that you could do 1 piece legs?
  11. Pecan such a nice wood.I really like the outcome. The details are nice and simple but add good depth. I am curious why you did the thick veneer. I know why it's thick but why veneer in the first place?
  12. Thanks everyone. Thanks. Everything is strait on the project except the arches at the bottom of the doors and the arches on the sides. I think the grain in the side panel is giving it an optical illusion. Yeah i put a piece of ply under that area above the cans. Hey i didn't make the wood i give credit to a higher power there. I just grabbed it from the stack before someone else could.
  13. Like the title says it's just a trashy cabinet. If your eyes move on quickly i won't judge. Needed a place to store the trash cans in my new kitchen. Finally had enough space to make one of these so i did it. Used QTR sawn oak stained with provincial. Was going to do the tip out kind but decided upon slides. I'm glad i did the slides. It was more complicated to construct but the usability is better. The gaps above the can area is for a pair of cutting boards I'll get around to making later. My plan was to make one solid and one with a hole in it so you could chop and slid the cut offs directly into the trash. We'll see if that ends up being worth while. If it doesn't the pull out boards will at least give a nice temporary storage area while cooking.
  14. I'd prefer to debate something more meaningful. Like asphalt vs concrete or blondes vs brunettes .
  15. I read your confession thread earlier today. I was talking about the Oneida Dust Gorilla pro 2hp unit though. I also don't and will never have any interest in CNC. No debate it's just not my thing. I talked with the rep from Oneida and if i wasn't going down the CNC route ever the high power isn't as necessary i guess.
  16. Well I'm interested to hear how it works out for you. I'm leaning towards the Oneida pro model. I've spoken with a sales guy extensively and he is confidant that a 2hp model will work well for me. My longest run will only be about 15 feet. I still fear I'd be making a big mistake if i went with the 2hp model. When is your pflux getting delievered?
  17. I'd wait until the black Friday sale time. i always remember seeing the air cleaners on sale then. I'd get the griz The two companies probably use the same overseas motor in the. Both motors are probably going to outlast the warranty and the griz might be cheaper to get replacement parts for? Looking at the parts break down i can't tell a difference. I'm in the market sometime soon as well. What DC did you end up getting?
  18. Wow those look awesome. One of these day's I'll have to try my hand at a pair of Adirondack chairs. I have the perfect place for 2 of them.
  19. Congrats on the successful move. Your dad is lucky, I'm only making my dad a coffee table . I did go back and find the thread and read through it. By read through it i mean i looked at all the pictures. Yeah you'd think that but having something enjoyable to work at removes one piece of potential stress. If it were me i'd get lost staring at the figure on the top all day. Thanks.
  20. I'm going to be building a 200 sq ft storage shed with 9' ceilings next summer. I might be able to store some for you. Fair warning it might be in smaller pieces and glued in a weird arrangement when you get it back. Though if your storing it here might as well buy slabs here they are probably much cheaper.
  21. Yeah Option 1. I bolted through the upper arms of the legs into the top. I used 3/8" bolts and a thread tapper. So things don't break with wood movement i made oblong holes so the bolt could move around as the top expands and contracts. https://youtu.be/rgB4j0DghQ0?t=15m6s Video to make things clear. You can just use a regular metal tap. Option 2. Get some figure 8 fasteners. https://www.amazon.com/Knape-Vogt-1547STL-Fastener-Gauge/dp/B0006FKSA6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1509451449&sr=8-2&keywords=figure+8+fasteners f You can use these to mount the top as well. Then it's a simple screw to remove. These also work well for wood movement and is what i use on a lot of projects. You will need a forstner bit or chisel to mount them flush with the top of the leg though. I don't have a video or picture to show you sorry. A search on this site "Figure 8 fastener" might produce something helpful.

    Ijust spilled shellac all over my laptop. Wonder how much longer this one will last.
  24. I wish you luck the trees are not super desirable and don't grow to be very big.
  25. Yes the do go through. That's a good question. I think i'm going to find out what i should have done down the road. Good part is they are only attache with 4 figure 8s so i can always remove them and do any repairs needed. The slabs sat for about 2 years between initial milling and final milling and didn't cup or warp or distort in any noticeable way so I'm not too worried about it.
