  1. You can always upgrade your fence on your current table saw to save some money for the time being. I know the Vega fences fit older Craftsman saws but there are lots of other ones out there. Seems like you're lacking a router/router table and dust collection. Outside of that, I'd get working and buy what you need when you come across it. He's waited this long to get a job, get him in it already.
  2. Thank you for the explanation. I was just trying to figure out why you would use the table saw over the router bit. I understand not wanting to buy more tools for something you'll rarely use. At least with the Incra miter gauge it's easy to accurately adjust. This build is really crazy. With all the angles I'm pretty sure I'd mess something up!
  3. Would it be easier to use a chamfer router bit instead of adjusting the miter gauge to make sure the end is straight?
  4. You have the 4 wheel version where you have to flip the lever on both sides? https://www.manualslib.com/manual/878509/Ridgid-R4512.html If that doesn't work you could try to look for the Craftsman version of the saw, model #21833.
  5. I live by one of the richest areas in the US. It's funny what people do with money. Some like fancy cars, some it's golf, some it's nice clothes for their kids. Some buy Ikea and then have to hire someone to put it together. Others you have no idea they have money. I looked at Darrell Peart's furniture and gasped when I saw the price. Don't get me wrong, it's amazing craftsmanship but I couldn't believe what it cost. I'm not his target market so I doubt he cares.
  6. I've had multiple neighbors come over to see how I had to mount our baby gates. The one nice thing about our townhouse being 45 years old is I can blame it on the previous owners. The drywall work looks awful so as long as mine is slightly better, it's fine. Some of our doors are so out of square there's no way I'll replace them myself.
  7. I watched some from the live watch party that Marc did and it seemed really interesting. I'm sure there's a lot of good stuff in there on templates and joinery if nothing else.
  8. Sorry to hear about your husband. Of course you can ask. The market really depends on where you're located. If you can give a general area someone local might be able to assist better with pricing. Descriptions and pictures always help too.
  9. If you're cutting this for turning and aren't looking for a nice smooth surface, wouldn't a chainsaw be quicker and accurate enough?

    Unless you can get a bunch of guys and there's room up the steps I think the crate/runners is the best option. Depending on how you need to get it out you could try a little electric winch to pull it up to make things a bit easier. Had to do that to get a fishtank stand out of my buddies house.
  11. It looks like it. I had the Rough Cut website bookmarked and it redirects to that.
  12. Can you find a better one for $600? If not and it checks out in person just buy it. $525 in 1996 is the same as $840 in 2018 dollars in my internet calculator is correct.
  13. We all make stupid mistakes at times, just try to be safe. Wear protective equipment for your eyes, ears and lungs. I was amazed at how much less tired I got after wearing hearing protection.
  14. 5" vs 6" is a big difference in the area of the sanding pad. 6" is 50% bigger than a 5" sander. And that's why you always order the largest size pizza.
