  1. Wow that is an awesome table. I also find it a bit ironic. Share some pictures mid build on the table it would be interesting to see how some of it goes together.

    I don't know what happened with the process if there was a quality check that was missed, not that i can blame them the burs were tiny on mine. Witha tiny bit of cleanup the blade is awesome. I just hope that this one doesn't snap on me like the last one.

    I'm sure the liability of over torquing is less than the liability of under torquing, now that i think about it. Replacing a stud is a heck of a lot cheaper than having to pay out an injury claim or dare i say worse. The interesting part is the tech for the torque wrench is the same as the stick it's all spring steel. I kind of agree on the liability side that they are risky but i'd rather see one on an impact wrench in a guys hand than nothing between the gun and the socket. I used to check them all on my cars but then got lazy after each one was right around where it should be. I will say you are right they probably aren't the best way and i'm not right because it's my car. I do a low of wrong things with my car, like put the grippier tires on the front. The interesting debate is how inaccurate all torquing devices are and how a proper torque can only really be measure with bolt stretch. Too many factors can cause issues with torque like friction between the lug and the wheel and friction on the threads. All of that added up will really make you think about the whole accuracy thing. Interestingly enough the head studs on my engine are torque to yield so the exact holding force is based on yielded steel which is easier to predict and calculate. It also eliminates the need for an accurate torque wrench but the procedure needs to be strictly followed. I should say i'm not trying to change an opinion just having a conversation.

    Have you used torque sticks before? Honestly i don't think they are something that automotive shops have on had or use. I've poked around a few shops and have never seen them. I've mentioned them to mechanics who call them black magic and would never touch them. To me the material science is simple and it's proven technology that is the underpinnings of far more critical things than lug nuts.

    Check the sides of the teeth on the blade. I just got a resaw king and it has some burs on the brazing. I removed the burs with a diamond paddle and the quality went from what your showing to FAR FAR smoother. Woodslicer is the rough one resaw king is bottom after i tuned up the blade.

    https://www.amazon.com/Neiko-02450A-Limiting-Extension-5-Piece/dp/B000IX3BSM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1514480775&sr=8-3&keywords=torque+sticks I feel like these are controversial as well but my high school shop teacher showed them to us. I bought a set and checked each one with a calibrated torque wrench and they were all within 3-5%. Every time i change from summer to winter tires i use them beats having to set a torque wrench. I would be highly surprised to learn that many tire shops use torque wrenches to install tires.
  7. I think your out of warranty at 90 days I'd ask but that's a lot to lug in to horrible freight just to get turned down. I found this as well that might be helpful http://www.leeson.com/TechnicalInformation/pdf/AC_Trouble_Shooting.pdf Check the simplest thing first, like wiring switch ect but it could be a failed capacitor which i don't think is terribly difficult to change. As always be careful when working with capacitors and electrical stuff. Sure you know just a friendly reminder.
  8. Marc also did a video recently and covered asymmetrical coves. It might have been in the free picture frame project now that i think about it but it covers the topic very well as usual.
  9. I thought this video was informative. Also there is some good advice from other guys on youtube. My personal rule is my fingers never go farther than the front of the blade. Another good safty device is an out feed table. It doesn't have to huge either.
  10. Scribe and a large radius on a spindle sander. I like the ideas for it but my favorite would be a cookie jar or candy dish. I love those lifesaver wint-o-green mints.

    Yeah well he wouldn't listen to my insistence that i knew what battery was supposed to be in my vehicle through both research and the fact it has a little heat shield that doesn't fit over the one that he was trying to push on me. I asked him if not running the heat shield would void the warranty and i was screwed either way i guess.
  12. huh seems like a waste of good wood. Well in any case i still like it better looking like 1 whole piece.
  13. I personally see it being better with out the 2nd shelf. I doubt it's 2 whole slabs my guess is that one of them is just a trim piece to give the illusion of 2. Seems silly and more problematic to have to make 2 slabs perfectly mate and not show gaps.

    A bit. I was reminded as a argued with the guy that worked at wlamart why i have always avoided that place. The guy tried to tell me to install a battery that doesn't physically fit in my vehicle because the book told him it was the right one. I told him the service manual for my vehicle disagrees with his book and he could shove his 3rd party manual where the sun doesn't shine.
  15. It's something like this that probably sparked Matthias's imagination to build the pantorouter. There is probably at least 1 thing in everyone's shop that would make some other person on this forum think they are nuts.This is just one big nut bin.
  16. Oh me too multiple times I've grabbed my veritas strait edge to check a board that looked like a smiley face.
  17. Yeah but the confusion spreads negative emotion and negative emotion causes people to react way more than positive emotion and they rely on that reaction to make money and drive people to the polls to push their agenda. Though it doesn't matter the headline the news agency or the party involved the tactics are the same. There is a reason why news is called media and not information. Bah i'm terribly cynical when it comes to news agencies.
  18. Wild Geese are ace holes, when ever i see them on the road i want to run them over, damaging my vehicle is the only thing that stops me.
  19. Waterfowl like geese and ducks can make really good pets. They are very social animals, I've always wanted a trio of ducks for pets. Had some when i was younger and they were a riot.
  20. the fact that we have a blind spot still amazes me. Also i like how curved lines can really mess with our perception of what is strait.
  21. Piece on the right is on top of the board and mitered so it looks like it's sitting under the top cross beam The grain on the back vertical piece isn't continuous.

    Battery tech is going down hill cause my last one was the original and lasted 12 years. It's not like i live in a temperate paradise either this morning was -18 according to my co-worker. Noted i think i'm going to buy it from walmart. They change it out for free too.
  23. Good looking shop helpers! I like the goose or is it a duck? Shop looks really neat. How cold exactly is cold to you? It's -23C here right now.
  24. My saw only has 1 speed. 3,000 feet per minute is the speed you should shoot for for cutting wood. The slower speed is for cutting metal.

    Any one use EverStart batteries in their car from walmart? This -15F weather has reminded me my battery is 10 years old and is tired.
