    SawStop Router Tables

    I would also assume ,similar to what we have heard about their band saw attempts, that the forces involved would make the whole cabinet jump. Lots of dangers possible there, and I assume they don't want a product that has to be bolted down to your floor.

    Simple Bird Feeder

    Squirrels are fine, and I don't mind them eating some seed. Still less wasteful than the Stellars Jays, who toss out everything but the sunflower seeds. It's the chipmunks that are obnoxious, always cussing people out.

    Purpleheart and western cedar

    No kids, but once I hit my teens I just lived in a small cabin next to the main house. I could keep it how I wanted, and the parent's didn't have to deal with any mess or noises. It was a nearly perfect setup.

    Plywood for axe handle

    Its a YouTube thing. I don't see anybody making one of these and not filming it.

    WEN 3 speed Air Filtration unit

    Which Shop Fox is the current DC? If it's the upright bagger I don't think you'll see much improvement going to the HF. I'd bet Wynn has a canister that would fit the Shop Fox.

    Design Help - Drawer Pull

    I'm not an expert on Krenov's style, but if you're taking inspiration from him already, might as well extend it to the pulls. His website still has a pretty good gallery of his work. This image has two options that look like they would be quite nice. Personally I'd go with the rectangular pull with the recessed top and bottom for grip. The more rectangular shape complements the existing lines of the piece, and obviously make it horizontal to go with the drawers. Krenov looks to have kept his pulls quite small, so they don't ever overwhelm the work, but they aren't trying to hide either. Alternatively, a carved square pull would look nice, and perhaps a touch more refined?

    Looking for Brass or Bronze Slimline Pen Kits

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, I'm really a filthy Greener/Geoduck. But since we don't have sports teams, I don't do sports anyways, and I work at UW now, I guess it'll have to be purple and gold :). Thanks Charlie (and everyone else), your link finally got me on the right track at Penn State. Found this kit I quite like the look of. I'd glanced through their search before but was apparnelty blind to the nice antique brass that doesn't look like it just got dug out of a mud pit.

    Looking for Brass or Bronze Slimline Pen Kits

    Thanks for the responses everybody, I'll take a gander this weekend.
  10. Did you have any luck adjusting the fence? I have the same saw, and I have to tighten it up (using the four metal setscrews that attach the fence bar to the ends, not the nylon adjusters) every six months to a year, otherwise it develops a little too much slop.
  11. I'm looking to make a set of pens in University of Washington colors (Purple and Gold). My problem is that the gold pen kits are all far too "bright" for my tastes. I'm looking for a darker color, brass or bronze. I haven't been able to find anything quite right, and most of my searches for brass pen kits turn up firearm-themed pens. I was able to find this kit, which is close, but I don't really want the pens to look beaten up before I hand them out. Artisan Slimline Pen Kit Antique Brass What I am looking for may not exist, but I thought I'd send up some smoke signals, and see if anyone has come across a nice brass/bronze pen kit.

    Handrails / millwork around Seattle/Bellevue?

    If you're still looking, check with Dunn lumber too. Their customer service is great, and flat-rate delivery is a bargain.

    Dilemma - House sold - What to do next?

    Now... I don't believe that engine is truly maintenance free. And I certainly hope your fuel (beer) costs more per gallon that diesel

    SawStop Brake Activation

    That's cool, a handy black box. Shows some dedication to improving the tech too. I wouldn't say it's quite a big-brother situation since you have to willingly send them the brake.
