  1. I can't help you on the model but i can tell you that if your protecting yourself from dust you don't need organic vapor cartridges. The pink P100 filters will work fin there.
  2. I think the reason the OP isn't having things delivered is because he doesn't know what he needs exactly and doesn't want to pay a ton for multiple deliverys or multiple rentals. I like the roof rack trick video above and use something similar when buying sheet rock even with a pickup. This is assuming he has a roof rack.
  3. Technically at least for my state for online and mail order purchases your supposed to send the tax in for items that you buy in other states tax free. No one does it, ok well 2 people do it. The tax commissioner and the guy that wants his job.
  4. Ford rangers are cheep you could probably buy a late 80s early 90s 4cyl for $500 and then sell it for $500 after your project is done. It sounds like a joke but I've done it. Find a good deal it'll make it easier to sell or keep it they are super cheap vehicles to own. Other thoughts, around here U-haul rents trucks for $20 a day. A jetta is big enough look into a hitch and renting/borrowing a trailer. I bought a used 4x6 trailer for $200 thing is dead useful. I don't put stuff in the back of my pickup any more i just hook that thing up for everything.
  5. My grandpa's pole shed had latches that held the doors in . I don't see how that wouldn't work with one on either side and weather striping around it? Just don't need 12. Something like this
  6. I think woodcraft is having a festool free shipping sale. CPO has free shipping as well. Honestly I don't think there is a bad place to buy from except maybe that hole in the wall local place that sells used demo units as new? Toolnut/festoolproducts was very helpful when i dealt with them on festool stuff (pro 5 sander).
  7. Ah yeah i knew i was forgetting something. Oh well the blizzards 10 months a year keep the protestors away. Just waiting for tomorrow hopefully we get a good blizzard. Oh thanks for the acme tools code @ben_r_ or who ever linked it first i was going to buy that MM 4 later but i can't say no to 20% off.
  8. Us rural simpletons have much power. I don't get why everyone hates this state. Tons of jobs, cost of living is cheap, our votes are valuable, taxes are practically non-existent. I can't see any drawbacks.
  9. It's not but the one benefit of living in an underpopulated state is i generally get out of paying tax through online retailers because we don't have many based here, amazon and acme are really the only 2.
  10. Wow just under 2 months and you went from a hole in the ground to a shop. I'm impressed. Can't wait to see tools in it and work coming out of it.
  11. It all comes back to lawyers and lawsuits. The mask companies can ensure your safety if you have a beard and the mask does seal. If brought to court, "well it filters most of it" is not a valid argument. Look at it how you'd set up a shop is 80% of the big 5 tools good enough?
  12. Not a deal but i found some Jorgensen clamps at acme in grand forks. Going to have to search their locations too see if i can find more.
  13. Happy thanks giving gents. Cut the ham and Turkey and now it's time to sit down with the family for meal #2.

    I just learned a really good way to get engineers to stop arguing with you. Talk about the grammatical structure of their arguments. Even if you don't know what your talking about they won't either.
  15. Thanks for the advice @bradpotts . I feel like you used a LOT of solid wood but then again there are a lot of cabinets in that kitchen. I grabbed 125 BF for mine but i think I'm going to use 1/2" Baltic for the drawers. #1 above is a concern for me i don't have a ton of storage space and to get around that because it's for my own house I'm going to do the build in parts build lowers and remodel and install and then build uppers after everything is up and running. #2 I decided to go with pre finished ply and after working with it there are a few hurdles but man is it going to be nice to just have to finish the face frame and the doors. It's going to make this way faster and easier. #6 is good advice I'll remember that thanks. Cabinets look good installed!
  16. I was going to hate on it at first but the planer idea is a good one. My planer is ALWAYS in the way. For as small as that is folded up i don't have space for it and unfolded i definitely don't have space for it. Kind of unfortunate.
  17. It gets sucked up by the vac attached to the track saw. I'd personally use the extruded pink stuff might make less of a mess.
  18. Awesome this looks like fun. Excited to follow along. Don't worry that's not a bad timeline I'm hoping to have a bench by 2018 but i'm not very hopeful. I need to buy a bigger space to put it in first .

    Fat tire bikes seem pointless most of the places i see people riding them i could take my road bike. The few places i seem them as being useful is soft sand and sloppy mud. I'd rather have a skiny tire on snow, hence i linked a studded roadbike tire above.

    Hijack! I've ridden on tires like this they work far better then you can imagine.

    I have had people tell me that often and I've dealt with traffic. Honestly the "beep-and-creep" traffic would bother me more in an auto. Doesn't your foot get tired holding that brake? That's so much work. Also just because i live in a rural state doesn't mean traffic is non-existent here. There are a lot of times that I'd trade our traffic for city traffic, I've been through both. 45 min for a 15 mile commute may be frustrating until it takes 45 min to do a 2 mile commute. You start to think "i could have walked this faster".
  22. I guess i should clarify. I don't mean close but it appears you know what it takes to get to the end. Your working on this quickly when you get to work on it and it's moving by leaps and bounds. I want to see this complete but i like following along, it's conflicting.
  23. I thought it looked good before sanding but after, wow! It looks to me like the end is in sight, have you put any thoughts into finish?
  24. To the experts above do you sand between each coat on waterborn finishes?
